movies about travel

Do you have a particular travel movie that moved you so much and urge you to hit the road? Movies about travel that will make you want to travel and inspire the wanderlust in you?

From inspiring backpacking movies, movies like Under the Tuscan Sun, or movies like Wild that can inspire a road trip and can make us want to go out and explore the world. As such, they’ve inspired many of us to live out our dreams to travel and go on our own adventures.

So without further ado, here’s my ultimate list of 64  travel movies and films I’ve compiled from all the best travel films listed all over the web   just for you my dear readers and friends.

Movies like Under the Tuscan Sun

That will give you breathtaking views of  Tuscany, Italy. Have you ever traveled to a place and liked it so much you wanted to live there forever? Well, for Frances Mayes (Diane Lane), that is exactly what happens. While on a 10-day trip to Tuscany, Frances impulsively purchases an abandoned villa. This movie is filled with humor, romance, and plenty of gorgeous vistas of Tuscany. This movie will have you packing your bags for Italy.

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Italy

More Movies About Traveling

In this list also are:

Into the Wild

One of my favorite movies about travel! Based on a true story, this film takes after Christopher McCandless as he tries to connect with real life and nature. After graduation, Christopher sets out on a road trip through the USA before winding up in Alaska. It reminds us that we all could simplify our lives and that travel is not about what we carry with us but about what we carry inside.

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: USA, Alaska

3 Travel Films: Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Europe

Regarded as one of the most significant films of the 90s, and starring a young Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, the film tells the story of an American travelling by train around Europe, and a French girl travelling home from Budapest. After striking a conversation on the train and having an instant chemistry, they decide to get off together in Vienna. The couple establish an intense intimacy, share stories, opinions jokes and discover love, all surrounded by backlit buildings, racing against time before sunrise. This is one travel film classic!

The Bucket List

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: France, India, China, etc.

An all time best travel movie with a message to live life to the fullest, the Bucket List is a tearjerker, and more importantly, a heart-warming film that will inspire you to do all the things that you want to do before you kick the bucket, including traveling. To me, the film also reminds us that life is too short, and we should enjoy it to the fullest.

Tracks (2013)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: West Australia

This travel movie talks of a young woman who goes on a 1,700-mile trek across the deserts of West Australia with four camels and her faithful dog. More amazing is that it is a travel film based on a true story.

The Lover (1992)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Vietnam

Another classic movie about traveling set in Vietnam! The heroes are a Vietnamese man and a French school young lady, who start a relationship together in Saigon. It’s an exquisite, air film, despite the fact that it’s more character-centered than anything.

Movies like Wild…

Out of Africa (1985)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Kenya and the UK

If you want another Meryl Streep travel film that is often considered one of the best travel movies, you should try Out of Africa. Ok, I know it’s an old one, but it definitely deserves a place in the all time favourite travel movies list. Filmed in Kenya and the UK, this classic that has won 7 Oscars and countless other prizes will definitely get you dreaming of Africa. It’s one of those movies that you can watch again and again.

The Hundred Foot Journey (2014)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: France, India

Here’s another one of my all time best favorite travel movie, the Hundred-Foot Journey is a feel-good movie that takes place in what just might be the most picturesque village in all of France with scenic locations of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val and the equally enthralling shots of Indian and French cuisine. This travel movie will  show you that indeed “Life has its own flavor.”

Wild (2014)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Pacific Northwest in the U.S

Based on a true story of a young lady who sets on a voyage of over a thousand miles with a couple of sick fitting hiking boots and a huge backpack planning to recuperate after the passing of her mom. Wild is full of beautiful scenes throughout the Pacific Northwest in the U.S, a travel movie that will surely make you want to travel!

backpacking movies

In Bruges (2008)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Belgium

This is awesome in light of the fact that many people never have motivation to travel to Bruges, despite the fact that it’s an amazing and noteworthy city. As Brendan Gleeson took in the history and read the guidebooks admiring the city, Colin Farrell just kept talking about how much he hated Bruges, which made me love it more.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Iceland, Himalaya and Afghanistan

This is a carefree story for a travel movie night with friends. This movie about traveling includes not your ordinary travel destinations. Many of the scenes (even the ones from Himalaya and Afghanistan) are shot in Iceland. The incredible undertakings of Walter Mitty will leave you yearning for an extraordinary adventure of your own.

movies about travel

On The Road (2012)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: United States

A youthful author with two companions sets off by stolen autos visiting the United States looking for freedom and insane undertakings. Difficulty, misfortune, and liberality drive the lust to wander in this travel film adaption of the original Kerouac novel. As with all movies about travel, it’ll never satisfy everyone. But it does expose how a life where you need to travel is … just … messy sometimes.

Up in the Air (2009)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: United States

George Clooney stars as Ryan, organizations contract him to fly all across the country to inform strangers they’ve lost their job. An obsessive frequent flyer, he’s going to achieve his objective of getting a million miles. This travel movie gives you a glance into corporate America and the domestic airports that shuttle workers around the country is in. An emotionally deft movie about travel that will give you one hilarious look at life on the road.

The Beach (2000)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Thailand

This travel movie follows Leonardo DiCaprio (before he had a dadbod :D) in the gorgeous crystal clear waters of Ko Phi Phi Lee, Thailand. Those beaches, those parties, those people. It appeared to be superb. Backpackers in Asia are always reading the book, and the travel film plays in all the guesthouses. It says something about our hopes for the road: we want to find our own idyllic, romantic paradise. The one we all think won’t be destroyed, but will. It is a great reflection on the hopes and realities of travel.

Midnight in Paris (2011)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Paris, France

There have been a lot of travel movies shot in Paris, however not very many can nail it like Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris. Owen Wilson strolling around Paris moves to another world. In the same way as other travelers in the City of Light, he backtracks the means of Parisian creatives past, drinking coffee in the same places they once did—until, late one night, an auto of these extremely symbols shows up, clearing him back so as to a night of celebration among the literati of the 1920s. Sure it’s time travel, but past or present, Paris always enchants.

travel movie

Little Miss Sunshine (2006)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: California, USA

Lovely, cute, inappropriate and hilarious, Little Miss Sunshine tells the story of a dysfunctional family that went on an unusually blissful and funny road trip to California, to fulfill the dream of their sweet little girl.

The Rum Diary (2011)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: Vega Baja, Puerto Rico

This movie about travel tells the increasingly unhinged story of journalist Paul Kemp (Depp) as he travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico. It is within this world that Kemp ultimately discovers his true voice as a writer and integrity as a man.

travel films

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: United Kingdom

Confronting widowhood, and the realities of aging, a group of British retirees travel to India to move in what they thought is a newly restored hotel. And find it to be not exactly what they expected, they get a great cultural lesson and immersion experience. It just goes to show you what expectations can do, and how much fun you can have when you have a great group of people.

Hector and the Search for Happiness (2014)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

A psychiatrist searches the globe to find the secret of happiness.

Eat Pray Love (2010)

Where this Travel Movie Takes you: New York City (United States), Rome and Naples (Italy), Delhi and Pataudi (India), Ubud and Padang-Padang Beach at Bali (Indonesia)

The book-turned-travel film motion picture Eat Pray Love, since its release has been moving people to travel, and look for a life or profession outside the huge humming cities. Yet another travel movie of the genuine story and diary by Liz Gilbert, Julia Roberts plays her and outwardly takes us through her transformational journey to self-disclosure through eating in Italy, praying in India and loving in Bali. A travel movie for all senses.

Top 4 backpacker destinations in the Philippines

So you read here about Boracay, and realized that it is the place you want to visit in the Philippines. This is the best place in the Philippines for backpackers for certain, and we advise anyone to start his vacation there. You can meet many cool people, with some you’d like to continue traveling, and some will tell you stories and share their knowledge with you.

After having the time of your life in Boracay, there will come a moment that you’ll feel ripe enough for the continuation of your trip, as you cannot stay in heaven forever. And then what? Read below to get a clue on how the rest of your vacation is going to be like. All of these destinations work great with Boracay and each other, and a month backpacking in the Philippines is hardly enough for all, but if you want to push it through in such a time window you can use the services of a travel agency such as PhilippinesTravelPackage.com

#1 El Nido

El Nido PH

The best place in the Philippines after Boracay, so it’s one you definitely want to visit. Even try to make it on the wet season May-October, be attentive to the weather and keep your schedule flexible. El Nido is the crown jewel of Palawan, and it’s easily accessible from Boracay.

Why El Nido? The most beautiful beaches in the world. Not the beach, as in singular, but many, popular or hidden, long or short, whatever! El Nido is the only competition for Boracay in the Philippines. Stay in the center in Mad Monkey El Nido, or in one of the most beautiful beaches around in Mad Monkey Nacpan if you feel like having a quieter time, and we’ll make sure you enjoy your time there to the max.

What to do there? Island hopping is a must! You can choose between 4 tours, but if you have the time why don’t you do all? Snorkeling and scuba diving is also great there. If you go on an island hopping tour, don’t forget to bring a snorkeling mask. It is the perfect place if you’re traveling as a couple, as not many places are as romantic as El Nido.

Where to stay? Mad Monkeys of course!

Where to eat? Breakfast local: Silog Republic – serve cheap Filipino Breakfasts. That’s not a bad place to start your day, especially if you had a lot to drink the night before. Breakfast: V and V Bagel – great Italian coffee, and freshly baked bagels. The classic: Art Café – this place serves good food to tourists for yours now. Great pizzas! Seafood: The unanimous opinion is Squidos. You can tell by the ever present long line of guests. Drinking: Pukka bar in Corong Corong beach is very close to Mad Monkey and one of the liveliest bars in town.

#2 Coron

Kayangan Lake Coron PH

Coron is very easy to get to from El Nido, and if you’re already close by (3 hours away by a fast ferry), it’s important for you to know that Coron is a backpackers’ paradise. Almost as beautiful as El Nido, and so much cheaper. It is the second most beautiful place in Palawan in our opinion.

Why Coron? Because you’re already in El Nido, and it will be a crime not to hop by in this amazing place. Because you want to get away from the crowd that flock to El Nido during the high season.

What to do there? Island hopping again. Like, it’s really that good that you should go island hopping in El Nido and then in Coron right after. For the scuba divers among you, Coron is a place you must dive, for some of the world’s best wreck dives are here. The lagoons of Coron (the Twin Lagoons) and Barracuda Lake (which has a mix of fresh and salt water) are a must visit.

Where to stay in Coron? Fat Monkey Hostel. This neat place is 10 ride from town situated in a mango grove. The Fat Monkey also organizes a 3 day castaway tour of sailing, camping on isolated islands, eating food cooked over a bonfire, feeling like pirates.

Where to eat? Breakfast: Fika Indulgence – excellent waffles and pancakes, as well as Filipino breakfast dishes. Cheapest eats: Lolo Nonoy’s – one of the oldest establishments serving home-cooked local food. Lunch: KT’s Sinugba sa Balay – a Filipino style grill house, which is affordable and supposed to be the best one in Coron. Nice ambience but long waiting time so come prepared. Diner: Trattoria Altrov’e – best pizza in town, wood oven baked of course. Also famous for their seafood pasta dishes which are generous and filling. Drinking: Hangover Bar is your best bet – probably the best in town.

#3 Cebu

Cebu PH

You can reach Cebu from El Nido, Coron, Boracay, and actually all places in this post, and most destinations in central and southern Philippines. It is a travel hub for many destinations in the Philippines, and an adventure packed island by itself. Spend some time in Cebu when you transfer here, and you will definitely not regret doing so.

Why Cebu? Why not, you’re already there… and it’s cheaper here than many other places in the Philippines. Plus, it’s very easy to get around the island.

What to do in Cebu? Diving in Malapascua is one of the highlights, as there are thresher sharks present all year around in Monad Shoal. It attracts divers from all over the world, so if you’re into diving don’t miss it under any circumstances. Whale shark snorkeling in Oslob is another famous attraction. Going to Kawasan Falls in Moal Boal is another. Those are the 3 basic attractions that you should cover, and there are more things you can do. Trekking from Dalaguete (Nearby Oslob) through Osmeña Peak is a good idea for you who love a little bit of trekking.

Where to stay? Tr3ats Guesthouse is by far one of the best hostels in Cebu City – Very affordable, cool atmosphere, and in the most central location. Sharky Hostel in Oslob is one of the cheapest and offers the best quality for the price. They also have affordable private rooms. Chief Mau in Panangsama Moalboal is the newest and coolest hostel around. It’s also famous for its vibrant bar open till the wee hours.

Where to eat? In Cebu City just go round the city center and the malls. You will be fine because there are endless options for all budgets. The Pleasure Principle Resto-bar in Panangsama is one of the best restaurants on the beach, as well as Kockonuts (this one has a great ambience, romantic and intimate). For drink’s head to Chili Bar, the liveliest one on the beach. Well, besides of the whale sharks there isn’t much to do, so just pick any of the restaurants in the northern part of the beach, and get ready to move on.

#4 Siargao

Siargao2

This is the next hot place in the Philippines. A place that started as a surfers’ place, became a backpacking paradise and will soon be one of the most popular places in the country, along with Boracay and Palawan.

Why visit Siargao? Be among the first to visit here, before it will change due to overflowing tourism. It is still virgin, affordable, fun, and accommodating!

What to do? Learn how to surf, as it is after all the surfing capital of the Philippines. Visit Sugba Lagoon and the tidal pools of Siargao, explore the white beaches, and go island hopping in breathtaking islands. Party every night of the week. The parties are far from what you’ll have in Boracay. Let’s put it this way, the nightlife scene is premature, but wild!

Where to stay? The Smiling Pig – one of the newest, friendliest, and cheapest in Tourism Road, Siargao. This is truly a place to hang out with new friends. They only have dorms, and no private rooms. If you want a hostel that does offer private rooms, try Jing’s Place, also in a central location close by. Not as fun, but very good value.

Where to eat in Siargao? Breakfast: Shaka Siargao – fruit bowls, muesli, acai, fruit shakes. Their powerbowls will give you enough energy for the rest of the day. Lunch: Mama’s Grill – very affordable Filipino grill that make fresh seafood and meat. One of the busiest in the island because it’s really that good. Dinner: Kermit – genuine and high quality Italian food. Drinking: Bravo – a Spanish restaurant with really good food and a great lounge, very suitable for group, drinking into the night and meeting new people.

 

Photobook Philippines Review: How to Create your own Travel Album

Hi everyone!

Several months ago, I happen to stumble upon PHOTOBOOKS, and have instantly fallen in love with them. As a matter of fact, I’ve had several Photobooks personalized and ordered already to capture photos in print of my travels all over the world.

Believe me, printed photos are just way cooler than just having them in your digital gadgets or social media accounts like Facebook!

So as I was saying, I was posting photos of my Photobooks and sharing it to my friends, and as time goes by, a lot had been asking me on how is it done. So here I am, creating a guide on how to create your own Photobook.

Check this out!

What is Photobook?

So what is this ‘Photobook’ I’m talking about?

Well, it’s simple really; it’s basically a photograph book you make online. You get to pick a size, choose your paper type, then upload your pictures and customize each page with backgrounds, content, clip art and frames.

With a photo book it’s easy to put your personality onto every page. Anything goes, so you can make your book your way.

All the templates are there and you just have to drag and drop your photos. EASY!

Hot to create photobooks

Take a look at some of the Photobooks I created!! 🙂

How to make your own Photobook?

  1. Sign up an account at PhotobookPhilippines.com
    • Click ‘My Account’ on the upper right corner.
    • Then Click ‘REGISTER’
  2. Now that you’ve already created an account, let me share to you a Photobook Deal.

Get your Photobook for only 20 PESOS!

Yep, that is so right.. I’ll share to you an online deal of having a Photobook for only 20 Pesos rather than paying its original srp price of 1,200Php?

How?

  1. Buy this PHOTOBOOK DEAL from METRODEAL.
  2. Pay for your order and after successful payment, you will get a VOUCHER CODE.
  3. Activate your Metrodeal Voucher code in this online form during the voucher validity period. [IMPORTANT TO DO THIS FIRST, BEFORE YOU CAN USE YOUR DISCOUNT VOUCHER]

The online form will look like this:

pb01

Fill out this part on the left side. Use the EMAIL you used for signing up in step 1.

After which, you will be taken to a confirmation page like this.

pb1

Now click back and you’re all set to start designing your Photobook!

pb2

You will be given choices on how you’d like to do your Photobook. I usually do mine using the 3rd option, ONLINE READYBOOKS.

pb3

Now if you’ll choose the ONLINE READYBOOKS, you will be taken to choose your template. NOTE THAT IF YOU PURCHASED THE 20php DEAL, they are only good for the MINI SQUARE 6″x 6″ Photobooks. So CHOOSE THIS OPTION.

pb4

After clicking it, you can now CHOOSE YOUR TEMPLATE.

Example for me, I’ll be picking ‘TRAVEL’

pb5

After which, this page will appear. Make sure to check that it is MINI SQUARE 6×6, SOFT COVER.

pb6

If all is set, then, click PERSONALIZE! A LOG-IN PAGE will appear, and you will have to enter your login details.

PB7

You will be taken to the ONLINE PHOTOBOOK EDITOR. Click this button on the upper left corner, to upload your images. You can also import images from your Facebook albums.

PB8

After uploading your photos, you can have the option to AUTO FILL if you’re not in the mood to one by one drag and drop the photos in the gray boxes.

PB10

If you’re all done and finished with your Photobook. Click ORDER.

pb11

This will be the prize that will first appear, don’t worry as we have not applied our discount voucher yet.

You can also change the paper choice, personally I like the cheaper one. The 70php is way thinner.

Click ‘CONTINUE’ then select shipping. By default it is set to Express Shipping. This is already good. Takes 10 working days or 2 weeks for your order to arrive.

pb12

Click CONTINUE.

pb13

Here you will now enter the VOUCHER CODE you ACTIVATED earlier.

See, the 1,200Php will no be ZERO and the only amount that you will have to pay is the shipping only.

Note that you CANNOT have multiple orders and have all of them shipped together to save from shipping fee. This is just how Photobooks’ rule is.

Anyway, who wouldn’t be happy for a Photobook of only 270Php (20php + 250php)?

Amazing deal and surely when you receive your Photobook you will be all smiles!

Here’s my Photobook of my Southeast Asia Backpacking Trip for 60 days. 🙂

 

 

Travel Guide: Surviving CARAMOAN 2017

caramoan camarines sur

Popularly known being one of the premier shooting locations of Survivor (PH and US) reality TV shows, CARAMOAN boasts a lot of enchanting islands and amazing limestone cliff rock formations!

f (3)

f (2)

Even with the hype of these shows, Caramoan is ironically a very peaceful and lax community where people thrive in living a quiet and simple life. If I may compare to other PH hotspots, it’s like a miniature El Nido minus the mayhem of tourists and with a more peaceful atmosphere.

DCIM112GOPROGOPR6111.

DCIM112GOPROGOPR6107.

Caramoan islands is a famous tourist destination located in the farthest coast of the province of Camarines Sur. Unknown to many, it can also be reached via Virac, Catanduanes which only takes about 1 hour of travel by land to Codon Port, the jump-off to the islands – which is was shorter than getting off from Sabang Port in CamSur!

DCIM112GOPROG4535769.

DCIM112GOPROG4575800.

Stops of this island hop includes:
– Lahos Island
– Matukad island (where you can find the ‘Enchanted Bangus’ at nagulat naman kami na may ROCK CLIMBING pala dito :D) – Tip: BRING HIKING SHOES
– Tinago beach
– Cagbalinad Island
– Minalagos Island
– Catanaguan Island
– Busdak Beach

DCIM112GOPROG4705918.

Unexpected to.. Di kami ininform ni kuya tour guide  na may Rock Climbing pala dito sa Matukad Island 😀 (TRAVEL TIP: BRING HIKING SHOES)

 

Itinerary:

– Ride to Codon, San Andres Port
– Start of Caramoan Island Hopping (7 islands)
– Lunch at the Islands (BYOB)
– Resume the Island Hopping
– Back to Codon Port and to Virac Downtown

Random Travel Thoughts: #Day8 of my 60 Days Southeast Asia Trip

09.21.2016, 10:41pm, Thailand time.

Today had been GREAT. 🙂

Woke up in BALI. Early morning walk at Kuta beach.

14394049_120300000260957586_424586754_o

Watched some surfers. Brunch at McDonald’s.

14453989_120300000264217548_499664303_o

14423739_120300000262894012_452689147_o

Yung mas malaki pa yung Rice nila kesa sa Chicken? hahaha!

Then by serendipity, stumbled upon fellow Pinoy Travel Bloggers who are also in Indonesia for an all-expense paid + a $1,000 pocket money 😲 sponsored trip by the Indonesian Tourism Board.

I kept on seeing some of their posts in my newsfeed as we were friends in Facebook, but I didn’t expect to see and meet some of them here. Perhaps a sign? Hopefully next time I could get to join them. 😉

Got a FREE taxi ride to the airport (thanks to Uber). 😄

But got unlucky upon airline check in – was forced to check in my bag, had to pay double right on spot for a baggage allowance. 😭😭

Good thing I have my credit card with me.

Bade GOODBYE to my memories of Bali. ❤

14439009_120300000259247778_2089273403_o

Until next time Bali!

Took a FOUR-HOUR plane ride (the longest perhaps I ever took).
But time ain’t waisted, I decided to blog while on thousands of miles above sea level. (watch out for the post soon). 😉
First time to write while on a plane ride.

Arrived in BANGKOK, THAILAND at their budget terminal.
Quite smelly I should say.
Long queue at the immigration. 😪

Tried saving money by taking the bus to my hostel, but eventually got lost.
Ended up hailing a taxi and paying almost 300 Baht. (The bad side of traveling solo, you get to pay for the entire ride). 😰

Checked in at GLUR BHARANI HOSTEL.

 

Eventually made friends with my roomies immediately – two of which are female solo travelers also.

One’s a SOUTH AFRICAN who tried escaping home to prove that Africans can and should travel too. And had been traveling for 3 years and counting now.

Another’s a girl about my age residing here in Thailand, but had been traveling within the country for sometime now. And now awaiting her flight to EUROPE after getting her Schengen Visa. An inspiration that Asians can do it too.

Met also a Chinese guy who had just RESIGNED FROM HIS JOB to travel the world – going solo as well.

Went out to have DINNER. But finding that most foods are beyond budget for today, I decided to just buy a meal from a sidewalk vendor, only for 30Baht.

 

Then tried out this street food as well, perhaps a Thailand version of our Pinoy Sorizo – but sorry I don’t like this Thai food. *ulk!

Went to STARBUCKS and was happy to purchase two more Starbucks Cards to add to my collection. Now, I’m about to complete the Starbucks Fall Collection Leaf Cards, the right one in green’s from Bali. Then the other two’s from here in Bangkok.

Also, I found out SB cards are way cheaper here in Thailand. Each card costs only 100Baht, and you could even combine the balances of all the cards when making a purchase, something you cannot do in the Philippines.

Good news also came to most of my friends who are licensed physicians now – after they passed the medical board exams.

Kudos! And congratulations to all of you! I’m proud of you all! 👍

I still wonder what if before I made a different choice, and decided to take up medicine? I guess I wouldn’t be here to where I am right now. Oh well, everything happens for a reason. 🙂

What a day it had been.
It’s raining really hard right now.
I’m here all cozy and warm in our hostel, working as the night passes by.

I hope tomorrow will be a better day.
Good night. ❤

Tegalalang Rice Terraces: Bali’s Most Popular Rice Fields

20160916_115241.jpg

Ubud is home to the most recognizable rice field in Bali – the Tegalalang Rice Terraces.

Located just north of Ubud centre (20-30 minutes by motorbike), it is one of the most popular rice terraces in Bali and often pictured on many postcards that you will see for sale throughout the island.

From the moment you step out of your vehicle, you get an excellent view of the lush and green terraces that covered three hillsides and spread down into the valley below.

The terraces were built with the traditional Balinese cooperative irrigation system called Subak, which according to history was passed down by a revered holy man named Rsi Markandeya in the eighth century.

20160916_122528You can go hike and take as many pictures as you want for FREE. There’s no entrance fee to hike in the terraces, however if you’d like to venture far enough you will come to a bridge where the locals who maintain the paths will ask for a small donation for the upkeep of the trails and bridges. Be sure to take several small bills with you for this “donation”. A 5,000 rupiah bill (20Php) for one person will be collected.

You can easily get a good view over the beautiful terraces from the road, or you can go for a walk in between the terraces.

There are also several cafes near the ledge where you can have a bite and drink and take in the scenery and admire the splendid views.

Several souvenir shops can also be found within the area.
