They are not very well maintained anymore, but they are easily accessible and the view decks are all along the main road. You can walk along the road and pass by the viewing points from Banaue proper, so no need to hire a trike.

Very breathtaking views of the rice terraces, especially with the sun coming up in the morning and reflecting on the terraces.

Some parts of the Banaue Rice Terraces may have been neglected but whatever is left of it is still beautiful. It was foggy and rainy when we were there but we were still able to view the awesome, centuries-old handicraft of the Cordilleran tribes.

The viewpoint [there are actually several] is quite stunning. The steepness of the rice terraces here are what dazzles. The site is definitely worth its share of the World Heritage Site status for Philippines' rice terraces. The views spread across the valley immediately in front...More

I visited Banaue in early February this year to trek through the jungle and through the rice terraces. I was met on the bus by a fellow passenger on return from a trip to Manila who was called Roy. Roy is pictured with his trike....More

Borne out of necessity to have areas for planting rice, the people of Banaue painstakingly carved their mountainous topography and create this wonder of the world. There are several rice terraces in Banaue and there are several viewpoints where one can have a great vantage...More

Most hotels, hostels in the area usually have WiFi connection. The signal can be a bit of a problem at times.
