NatGeo travel writer Tara Isabella Burton recommended coming to the Philippines’ many tourist-friendly destinations outside the Sulu archipelago, such as the Banaue Rice Terraces.

Burton beckons travelers to “Visit the country’s ice-white beaches, or head inland to stunning places like Banaue and Batan, both on North Luzon–the archipelago’s biggest island–to visit two-thousand- year-old rice terraces–UNESCO World Heritage sites each violently blindingly, green.”

NatGeo encourages visitors to keep coming to the tourist economy-reliant Philippines

Visit the country’s ice-white beaches, or head inland to stunning places like Banaue and Batan, both on North Luzon–the archipelago’s biggest island–to visit two-thousand-year-old rice terraces–UNESCO World Heritage sites each violently blindingly, green. The local tribes who live around the terraces sustain themselves though tourism–so contribute to the local economy by hiring a hiking guide (around 15 dollars) and participating in homestays, like Ramon’s: where you can spend the night in a traditional Ifugao hut.
