Cadapdapan Rice Terraces: The Hidden Treasure of Candijay, Bohol
Kaiser Mangampo | Aug 13, 2018
People go to Bohol to visit the famous Chocolate Hills, the amazing Loboc River, the Tarsier sanctuary, the Baclayon church, and many more. These are places that you should definitely visit, but why don't you visit a new destination that not a lot of people go to, but is definitely worth it.
The Cadapdapan Rice Terraces is more than just a field that is used for farming, this creation of the locals from Bohol shows how much they value fine detaisl and hardwork.
Did you know that the municipality of Candijay, where the rice terraces are found, is actually an irregular and patchy terrain with slopes? The people of Candijay had to think outside the box and improvise on how they would make a living out of farming. So the Cadapdapan Rice Terraces is actually a sign of how much they had to adapt just so that they can survive. It clearly shows their novelty and advancement of thinking. As cheesy as this sounds, when you are there, and you see the beautiful terraces and feel the breeze of the wind, you’d feel amazed by how magnificent this site is. It would make you ask yourself “How can something as beautiful as this be manmade?”
Everything about it is beautiful. From how the sun hits the parts of the terraces with water, the green color of the fields, the chirping birds you’d hear, and the warm welcome of the people, is definitely quite an extraordinary experience. Plus, the entrance fee is pretty cheap too.
