3 Must Visit Places in the Cordillera | TakeFive Outdoors

Must Visit in Cordillera
There's too much chaos on the roads in the Metro so searching for deserted places with a picture perfect landscape is now a norm. With the gorgeous and stunning photos scattered on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram it is now easy to promote, search and catch a glimpse of places to visit. If I would suggest places in Luzon, the provinces in the Cordillera region are on the top. Been here few times and I noticed that it is one of the favorite destinations of many international and local tourists. Who says no to a place with a big picture of a so called paradise. There's healthy forest with fresh air, cool and relaxing ambiance, pristine lagoons, colorful flora and fauna, and has a cool weather with no heavy traffic and no cellular signal perfect for bonding. Here are 3 of the Top Must Visit Places in the Cordillera:

Batad, Banaue Rice Terraces and Tappiya Falls

Batad Rice Terraces
Banaue Rice Terraces, Sagada and Mt. Pulag are just three of the famous tourist spots in the Cordillera region. I usually see them on the post cards before but please don't calculate my age. Honestly, traveling to these gorgeous spots is a bit challenging because of its geographical location; seven to twelve hours are needed just for transportation. In the contrary, let's proceed to the reason why you should visit the Cordilleras, especially the Province of Ifugao. Here are a few of the photos I captured during our visit for you appreciate the magnificence of nature hidden in this region.

Museum Hunting: A Tour of Elegance

Imelda Marcos Collection
Today is a boring day! Question is: "Anu ang magandang gawin kapag wala kang magawa?" Sagot: " Pinturahan ang buong bahay gamit ang cutix." Pero wala akong cutix. So, after washing my clothes, without itinerary I planned to visit all the Museums in Manila including Ayala Museum in Makati City but that plan ended up visiting Marikina Shoe Museum (with 50 pesos entrance) and the two Buildings of the National Museum of the Philippines because they both have FREE Admission.
