ANTIQUE RICE TERRACES TRIP. MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES!

A hidden heritage has been “rediscovered” deep in the mountains of Valderrama town, Antique province.

A cluster of rice terraces spread in the different barangays (village) has been preserved by the Iraynon Bukidnon, an indigenous group, and is deemed a cultural treasure.

The 60-min motorbike and balsa ride from the national highway of Bugasong to Brgy. Lublub, Valderrama will be totally worth it upon seeing the Antique Rice Terraces.

This piece of Visayan ingenuity proves that Luzon isn’t the only region capable of creating beautiful man-made structures. On the other hand, it proves that all Filipinos, whether they’re from Luzon, Visayas, or Mindanao, are capable of creating practical and wonderful feats of engineering and architecture, when given the proper resources and tools.
