Bohol’s Rice Terrace Villages: The Beauty of Asia

Introduction

The Philippines is a country that’s often overlooked, but it’s home to some of the most beautiful places on this planet. I’ve been lucky enough to travel throughout my life, and one place that really stands out as special is Bohol. It has everything you could ever want in an island: mountains, beaches, jungle and all kinds of sights you’d expect from Southeast Asia. But what sets this place apart are its rice terraces—and they are truly amazing. The beauty of these villages will leave your jaw dropping!

The rice terraces in the island of Bohol in the Philippines are beautiful.

The rice terraces are located in two places: Sagbayan Peak and Loboc River.

The landscape is a combination of amazingly green rice fields, steep mountains and blue skies.

The terraces were built to make farming easier for farmers.

The Rice Terraces of the Philippines are a beautiful example of human ingenuity. The terraces were built over a period of centuries, by farmers who wanted to make their lives easier.

The process involved cutting steps into the mountainside and filling them with dirt, which was then used for growing rice and other crops. Today, these terraces are still being used for farming purposes–a testament to their usefulness!

The villages are home to the indigenous people who originally came from the Philippines’ Negros and Samar islands.

Rice Terrace Villages is a must-see for tourists visiting Bohol. The village is home to the indigenous people who originally came from the Philippines’ Negros and Samar islands. They are known as the “Buhid,” which means “hunter” in their native language, and they are traditionally rice farmers who live in small villages with their extended families.

The Buhid have their own unique customs and traditions, including how they conduct weddings (you’ll see this when you visit), but what makes them so special is their respect for their elders–something that isn’t always common these days!

Each village has its own distinctive charm and its own way of doing things.

Each village has its own distinctive charm and its own way of doing things. If you’re planning a visit, it’s best to check with your local travel agent or hotel concierge first to find out what’s going on in the area at that time. You can also ask them if they have any recommendations for restaurants or other activities nearby.

One thing you won’t want to miss is an overnight stay at one of these charming villages! The locals will show you around during the day and make sure everything is taken care of before heading back home at night so there’s nothing left for you but relaxation–and maybe some star gazing from one of those infinity pools we mentioned earlier!

Go check out these amazing places!

The beauty of these rice terraces, which can be seen from space, is only one part of what makes these villages so special. Each village has its own unique way of running things and working with nature to create a food source that’s been around for centuries.

The Philippines is home to several other UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well–the Chocolate Hills (a massive field of small hills covered in grass), Tubbataha Reef (which boasts some amazing diving), and Mount Apo National Park–so if you love natural beauty or want to experience something new and exciting, this is an excellent place for you!
