Ifugao Rice Terraces

When I first looked over my itinerary for this trip to the Philippines, I wasn't happy to read that each day I was going to visit a different rice terrace. In my mind, how different could they be? If you've seen one, you've seen them all... Well, I was very wrong and I'm here to tell (and show) you that they're all very different and each one is more beautiful than the next!
