Exploring Lulugayan Falls: Samar’s Curtain-like Waterfall

My recent travel to Samar started with this gorgeous waterfall in the heart of Calbiga! Called Lulugayan Falls, this waterfall has amazed me even from afar. I was riding the habal-habal when I managed to get a glimpse of its promising cascades. And when I was finally near it, I couldn’t help but be awed…

Exploring Caramoan: Camarines Sur’s Island Jewels

Ever since the US TV show, Survivor, has filmed in Caramoan, a group of islands off the eastern coast of Camarines Sur, and shown it worldwide in early 2013, many people― both locals and foreigners― have flocked to see it for themselves.

Exploring LEYTE: Gateway to Eastern Visayas

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…
