Photographer's Note

Banaue Rice terraces used to appear on the old paper 1,000 peso notes, which were still in circulation when I was there in 2011. You can see it here:

Bali, Java, China, Nepal & Vietnam are not the only countries with impressive rice terraces. The Philippines has some too in central Luzon Island. Of course, the paddies would look better in June when the rice seedlings have been planted, but my holiday from Korea had to be in December / January which is winter. But the view is still spectacular none the less. The town of Banaue is over to the right about 5 km down the valley.
