Lakbay Norte: Top tourist spots to see in Nueva Ecija

MANILA, Philippines — Since most of its land are rice fields, Nueva Ecija has been dubbed the “Rice Granary of the Philippines.”

But little do people know, the province also has tourist spots where visitors can relax this time of the pandemic.

From scenic hills and farms to historical sites, Nueva Ecija proves it is not only the country’s number one source of rice.

Colosboa Hills

Located in the town of Cuyapo, hikers can enjoy the Colosboa Hills' undulating landscape. Families can also lay down their picnic mats amid the calm of Mount Bangcay, with grazing cows in view. The hills' uneven terrain are also perfect for bikers seeking adrenaline rush.
