If you thought Bohol was just beaches and waterfalls, think again. The Cadapdapan Rice Terraces are hands down one of the most beautiful places in Bohol and an adventure not to be missed. 

Cadapdapan Rice Terraces remind me a lot of the rice fields in Bali with its tiered architecture and vivid green hues. And on the plus side, there were absolutely no other tourists in sight when I visited these rice fields in Bohol, unlike that of the herds of tourists that you’ll encounter in Bali.

So without further ado, here is a complete guide of Cadapdapan Rice Terraces including where to find them, how much it costs and what to expect!

Have you got travel insurance for the Philippines? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents happen all the time and having travel insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. You can read more about why you need travel insurance.

I have been using World Nomads Travel Insurance on every trip and in my opinion, they are the best travel insurance provider on the market. I always choose the Explorer Plan as it covers just about everything.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT CADAPDAPAN RICE TERRACES

Incredible beauty is what you can ultimately expect at Cadapdapan Rice Terraces and it truly is one of the best places to visit in Bohol. 

I made the decision to drive out to Cadapdapan Rice Terraces early one morning to catch the sunrise at 5:30 am. I left my accommodation in Anda at 4:15 am and made it just in time to wander out into these gorgeous Bohol rice fields and witness a colourful sunrise as it lit up this remarkable vista.

The receptionist at my accommodation gave me a local tip the night before I left on this adventure and showed me on the map a secret viewpoint away from the main tourist viewpoint.

When I arrived on my scooter in the dark, I didn’t think I would be able to find the entrance to this other viewpoint but I was successful in my efforts. There is a small hut on the side of the road just a few hundred meters past the ticketing checkpoint. See the image below of where to find this exact jump-off point.

EXPLORING CADAPDAPAN RICE TERRACES

The narrow dirt trail leads right out into the centre of the Cadapdapan Bohol and I remember it being so silent and peaceful. I spent some time just standing amongst the tall rice fields enjoying the sunrise and shooting some photos of a cluster of coconut palms out in the terraces.

I continued along the trail to a nearby hill that is almost perfectly round in shape which resembles something similar to the Chocolate Hills in Bohol. There is a small rice farmer’s house at the base of the hill where I bumped into the owner and I asked if I could pass through his backyard to the viewpoint. He said yes of course and pointed me in the right direction.

This incredible viewpoint not only overlooks the Cadapdapan Rice Terraces but it also boasts extensive views down the valley and to the ocean. If you don’t have a drone, this elevated viewpoint is by far the best spot to view the Cadapdapan Rice Terraces from a birds-eye perspective.

You can spend as much time as you want at the Cadapdapan Rice Terraces but I would say one to two hours is enough as there are more Bohol tourist spots worth checking out which I have outlined further down in this post.
