There are great places where you can view the rice terraces. Go directly to Batad and spend the night there or two than just staying in the Banaue town.

Nice view. But it needs to be restored to its former glory. Too many tinned roof houses that ruine our pictures.

There are many places to get souvenirs, accommodation, snacks or even a great picture with the locals along the road. You can also hike down many trails to see the rice fields up close. Bring good boots though
