Eye on the Philippines
The Ifugao people are skilled farmers who built the rice terraces themselves and were once feared as head-hunters just like the other mountain tribes in Northern Luzon, although this practice has ceased a long time ago. Their fiercely independent spirit as a people has made them resist the threat of foreign invaders for several hundred years and allowed them to preserve their rich culture which continues to grow and prosper up to this day.
Today, more than the beautiful and breath-taking surroundings, the warm hospitality of the happy and friendly Filipino people is what makes the Philippines a truly wonderful place to visit.
