The municipality of Banaue is located in the mountains of Luzon Island, in the Ifugao Province of the Philippines. As the many tour buses indicate in the film, it is a worthwhile tourist destination, as the site has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995, due to the abundance of rice terraces carved into steep slopes.
Also the region is characterized as the 8th wonder of the world.
In the film we see the open air market where pastries and products from the area were sold, as well as decorative baskets made by the locals. We also see a woman cleaning part of a rice terrace from pests, and also a local man in traditional costume.
