The Candijay's Rice Terraces

Rice terraces in Candijay is compose of huge hectares of land. Farming, however, is the town's number one way of living. Candijay, it is just the same with our town in Bien Unido, farming is also our number one way of living, secondly, in fishing . People of Candijay are so lucky for they have the unlimited supply of water for their farming, unlike with our place and other places in Bohol that will depends only of the rain.

The making of Rice Terraces

Kuya, the one who guide us in the place told us that before, the land (rice terraces) is just like a normally or useless lot, no plants or rice plant that can be planted for no water that will be stocked in the land because of the slope form the of land. Before, the only thing that you can see in the area are the tall and wild grasses. The owner of the land, think of something to develop the land into something useful until they come up of carving the hills. They make small boxes or container that will blocked the water from rain or irrigation. I seriously, asked Kuya if they use any form of machine in carving the terraces because for sure they will be heaps of hard-work if they manually carve it by them self. But Kuya told us that they carved the hills with their bare
hand sweat.

Now, the vacant and unused lot became more useful than expected, they harvested tons of sack of rice every year. They have good harvest for they have good water supply. You know, water is essential in doing farming.

Our rice terraces experience

The rice terraces is not just their way of living, for its became a tourist attraction in the town also. You can really see the beauty of rice terraces once the rice plant are fully grown/green. We're unlucky when we  visited the place because farmers are just planted the rice plant, so, it's not green yet. But even if we didn't see the terraces with the green plants, still, we enjoyed our Laag and had a great experience. When you visit the place with good timing, you can definitely see and say that the place is wonderfully amazing.
