Batanes: South Batan Tour

So Batanes had mesmerized me for days after my week-long travel.  South Batan had been a total eye-candy.  Actually, anywhere I look in Batanes, I could not utter any other words except wow. 

And so go ahead and get wowed.

Mahatao Shelter Port

I will climb up those stairs in my next visit.
Racuh A Payaman | Marlboro Hills

My most favorite place.  I did nothing here but run, shout and jump for sheer joy.  This defines Batanes for me.

I remember a friend telling me, "We should bring dishonest people here in Batanes."

Solemnity. Solace. Silence.

And this bridge is built to last a lifetime for it is still being used!

  1. Loving this post! The images are awesome; you nailed 'em. As for the Philippines I am long overdo for a visit. I haven't made it over from the mainland SE Asia yet but I will get over there, especially as I watch the snow pile up here in NJ. Bali next week though so we'll be nice and close ;) Thanks for sharing and for inspiring us!


    1. Hello Ryan thanks for the compliments! Sure you'd love it here! Happy travels! : D

  2. Batanes is a must visit place in the Philippines. You will be amazed of how unique and interesting the stone houses are and how they are able to stand with the many typhoons every year.
