We set off from Manila airport at 930am in a hire car that took some getting used to.
Driving through the city during Saturday market time was insane, but completely worth it as we got to see Manila from another angle and experience the mania of day to day life.
Eventually we got on to the expressway (a drivers dream) which only lasted an hour or so unfortunately. It then became an A road of some sorts, cutting itself into the Carrabello mountains, 70 miles took us 6hrs!!!
We arrived to native village inn, 9km outside Banaue town, 12 hours later.
It was twilight when we were shown to our Ifugao style hut, we had no idea what awaited us in the morning.
At 6am I opened the hut door .....
I'll let the pictures do the talking!!
• hire you're own car and drive it yourself, not as scary as you'd think and we saw so much more for it
• Native Village Inn - paradise!
Cosy, peaceful stay and an experience in itself.
