Banaue Rice terraces in Ifugao Province is a place that you can’t miss when visiting the Philippines. It was declared a UNESCO Site and is one of the iconic places in the country. In this blog post we will write about where to stay in Banaue. There are many transients for an affordable price. Don’t expect so much luxury in Banaue and Batad rice terraces, but we promise the experience will be awesome!
Best Time to visit Banaue
If you’re planning to go to Banaue, you should know that December to March aren’t the best time to visit Banaue rice terraces as the land appears barren at this time of the year. April to May is a good time to visit the North since it’s summer in the Philippines and you will need to seek refuge in the country’s cooler areas. This is also planting season in Banaue so you’ll be able to see a lot of green on the terraces. However, June to November is the best time to visit Banaue if you want to see the rice terraces in their lushest and most beautiful state.
Where to Stay in Banaue
NATIVE VILLAGE INN
Our choice for staying in Banaue was Native Village Inn. The place is 9 kilometers far from Banaue in Uhaj. You can get there by jeepney 20 PHP or tricycle from Banaue 100 PHP. The views are amazing, you can observe the rice terraces during the whole day, while having breakfast, while walking around. You will not get tired to take pictures and look this amazing view.
There are 7 cottages, so the place is very quiet. The area is very green and you will get everything that you need in the cottage. A bed, light and a few plugs for a local accommodation. We enjoyed so much our breakfasts with a view.
Sleep in a Transient
Transient houses are the usual choices for accommodation in Banaue and Batad. Prices start from 500-700 pesos ($10-15) for a room. It depends if you want private or common bathroom. In these local and remote places, you realize how nice Filipino people are. They allowed us to extend our check out until we get our night bus back home without adding any cost. We can 100% recommend them for you guys. Here are our top picks.
