TESTIMONIALS

As the trip progressed strangers became friends. Particularly special was the effortlessness: perfect logistics, never having to worry about anything, and, of course, the charming and thoughtful way you organised everything.
Selected testimonials from the Aman Jet Journey, March 2016

Banaue

Set in northern Luzon, the rice terraces of Banaue are among the country's most striking sights and have been called "The Eighth Wonder of the World." Built by the ancient Ifugao tribe, this series of stepped terraces were carved out of the mountains by hand over 2,000 years ago. An agricultural marvel, these terraces still produce rice and vegetables, though these days a huge portion of Banaue's revenue comes from tourists who travel up to 12 hours from Manila to witness this awe-inspiring landscape.

Though not as dramatic as its neighboring rice terraces, Batad is well worth a visit as a side-trip from Banaue. Local villages dot the landscape, and the friendly villagers are accustomed to tourists hiking to the scenic Tappiyah waterfalls and stopping to buy traditional woven cloth and handmade knives.
