Banaue is a town on the Cordillera mountain range in the north of the island of Luzon, in the Philippines. It is widely known as the site of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Batad Rice Terraces and Bangaan Rice Terraces.

There are no banks nor ATMs in Banaue because it is a very small town. The provincial capital, Lagawe, 25 kilometres south of Banaue, has a branch of Philippine National Bank and an ATM machine that dispenses only a maximum of 4,000 pesos for a single transaction.
