If your think only modern world have advanced engineering, think twice. The rice terrace of the people of Ifugao were built since 2000 years ago using bare hands and basic tools, and It still survive till today.

"The Banaue Rice Terraces are 2000-year old terraces that were carved into the mountains of Ifugao in the Philippines by ancestors of the Batad indigenous people. It is commonly thought that the terraces were built with minimal equipment, largely by hand. The terraces are located approximately 1500 meters (5000 feet) above sea level and cover 10,360 square kilometers (about 4000 square miles) of mountainside. They are fed by an ancient irrigation system from the rainforests above the terraces." - Quoted by Wikipedia, Banaue Rice Terraces
People in Banaue live a basic live style. They off to the fields from sunrise to sunset, and return to home when night approaches.
