When you visit the Philippines, you must see the incredible Banaue Rice Terraces. Imagine that about 2,000 years ago, the Ifugao tribes have carved in the mountain without modern tools. These incredible farm terraces must definitely be seen. Even today, locals still plant vegetables and rice on these locations. It is an incredible place and it has an incredible culture. Unfortunately, younger Ifugaous are not interested in farming and immigrating to the cities.

Another top tourist attraction in the Philippines is the Chocolate Hills. This place features symmetrical formations, ranging from 40 to 50 meters high and being covered with green grass. When the dry season comes, the grass turns brown. There is no logical explication about this unusual geological formation, but some theories are saying that the Chocolate Hills are formed by a marine limestone on top of a layer of clay.
