Exploring Breathtaking BATANES: A Primer

My Batanes trip is one of the most exciting travels that I’ve had. The province is beyond beautiful; you can’t help it but appreciate its beauty and magnificence wherever you may go. But going here won’t be so easy. Preparing to travel here is a must. Let me help you with some tips that I…

Exploring LEYTE: Gateway to Eastern Visayas

I have always heard good stories about the province of Leyte and its nearby provinces from friends who have lived there or have been there. Monumental and historic structures, islands with pristine beaches and other interesting sights have attracted my curious mind even back then. And I am just happy that I have already set…

Exploring EASTERN SAMAR: The Province of Beauty and Resiliency

One of the three provinces in the island of Samar is Eastern Samar, located at its easternmost part that faces the Pacific Ocean. I didn’t know very much about this province until I visited it recently. I was surprised to find out that Eastern Samar is endowed with beautiful waterfalls, pretty beaches perfect for surfing…

Exploring Casiguran: Aurora’s Hidden Haven of Nature

  Aurora has been a constant go-to place of many people who are either on a long vacation or just wanting to escape for a short but good time. Baler is a haven for surfers while Dingalan is a sanctuary for stunning landscapes. But one place in Aurora hasn’t been explored by many people yet…

EXPLORING NEGROS: Bacolod, Lakawon, Sipalay, Apo Island and Dumaguete!

This blog post is about exploring the provinces of Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental in four (4) days. Starting from the northern part of Negros Occidental (entry point is Bacolod City, then going shortly to Lakawon in Cadiz City) and eventually going southwards to visit Sipalay City, Apo Island and then Dumaguete City of Negros Oriental, this trip…

EXPLORING CORDILLERA: Maligcong, Sagada and Batad in 4 Days

I have been to Mountain Province and Ifugao before (I’ve also blogged about them: click each province to read about them in detail) but there are always good reasons to go back. From wonderful sunsets and sunrises atop the mountains of Maligcong to the cold, dark caves of Sagada (both of which I was not…

Exploring Mountain Province: Maligcong, Bontoc and Sagada

I’ve been fascinated by Mountain Province even before the hit film, That Thing Called Tadhana, made one of its municipalities, Sagada, a word-of-mouth for people of all ages. Some friends, either travelers or not, have already experienced the said Cordillera province and the common thing that they tell me about the place is that it’s beautiful, more…

Exploring Asik-Asik Falls: Cotabato’s Glorious Gem

The Philippines has numerous gorgeous and stunning waterfalls all throughout its thousands of islands. One of the most stand outs among these waterfalls that I’m blessed to have visited is the Asik-Asik Falls of Cotabato. This mystical waterfall in Alamada, Cotabato isn’t so easy to reach as traveling here is going to take a lot…

Exploring Calayan Island: Cagayan’s Hidden Paradise

Think about looking at the sea showing the bluest shade that it can get. It kind of pulls you in, but then it freezes you in awe. You can play along its white, sandy shores and take a dip in its shallow parts. But then waves can be so big you’d have to be careful…

Exploring Balabac: Palawan’s Best Beach Destination

Imagine this: pristine, bluish water so clear you’d like to stare at it and swim in it for a very long time. Next, think about the finest and whitest sand that you could ever imagine. Touch it, play with it and roll on it. You have to travel for a very long time and maybe…

Exploring Cotabato City!

Going to Cotabato City marks my third time to set foot in Mindanao. I have been to Davao twice before, making Cotabato City the second place I have visited there. Needless to say, I was more than excited and exhilarated because this trip is again something new. My trip to Cotabato City was actually a…
