Palawan is a dream destination in the Philippines for many travelers and it rightfully deserves the worldwide reputation the province is savoring nowadays because of its uncanny beauty. The inclusion of Puerto Princesa's Subterranean River in the new 7 wonders list propels the stature of the province even more to the global scenery. I never get tired of arranging group trips no matter how many times it usually fails and Palawan ( mostly the northern part ) is my focus now. I'm going in with another group again and as usual I'm tasked with the itinerary. Here's our sample itinerary that'll hopefully guide you as well in your future trip in such a lovely province. 

I'm such a sucker for sunsets. There's just something so alluring about it that never fail to leave me in a state of awe. Wherever my wayfaring feet brought me any day will never be complete without witnessing a spectacular sunset scene. Be it in a bus navigating a treacherous cliff, a ferry sailing in a vast ocean or up in the sky while in the plane it just commands attention and I'm always happy to oblige. Cebu happens to feature so many jaw-dropping sunset spots and so I made a countdown of the best sunset spots in the province. I've narrowed down the list to five best spots based on the experience I had. I give the specific location where it is best viewed. One of the photos above is the number one. Can you guess what photo is that?


People from all over the world flock to this island paradise for an encounter with the elusive thresher sharks and that is how Malapascua earned her reputation but the island offers so much more than that which will surely surprise you. Unexpectedly, the revelation changed my perception of the island and I was ensnared of such an innate beauty. Besides the long stretch of pristine shores comparable to the top beaches in the country there are numerous coral gardens as well perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving. They even have numerous locations of shipwreck with one perfect to snorkel due to its close proximity to the shore averaging around a depth of five meters. I will gather all the relevant information you might need of Malapascua island in this post.


The idyllic island most synonymous to Cebu more than anything else in the province and often compared to the world class shores of Boracay. Bantayan Island offers a recluse to any soul seeking peace with her mesmerizing white beaches and leisure for the party animals in the specific time of the year. Many tropical islands in the province have rise up to compete with her reign in recent years but none so far have dethrone her. She may be known for her spotless coasts but there are actually more to Bantayan for tourists and travelers alike. I will try to cover in this post everything you need to know about the island and some tips to boost your stay.


There are so many beautiful natural locations and things to venture in this world, among them, the waterfall. It seems people are naturally drawn to water, falling from soaring cliffs or dropping in short bursts among a river’s edge. It could be on a local hike or traveling to an exotic location, many will trek miles to get an uncanny view of a majestic waterfall. Nothing compares standing at the base of a waterfall, with the spray in your skin and the deafening roar in your ears. Trying to find a waterfall can be an adventure in itself and when you arrive there you are rewarded with an majestic beauty of nature. Cebu happens to be blessed with this nature's marvel and I will try to cover all of them. Keep coming back here as I will try to publish new waterfall as often as I can and a guide on how to get there. I will try to alternate the content from famous waterfalls to a less known ones. Cheers to all waterfall chasers out there! 

Bohol is synonymous to chocolate hills, pristine beaches, tarsiers, virgin forests, rewarding river cruise and near infinite wealth of century old churches but make no mistake if you think that is all there is to see in this island province. Herein lies majestic waterfalls and infamous rice terraces that Cordillera is known for and these are no lesser replica of the said wonder but just as equally grand. What made it even more exciting is they can all be found in the small municipality of Candijay and easily wandered in half a day trip.


Kalanggaman Island is getting all the attention as a top summer island getaway in recent years. The island has everything you ever dreamed of an ideal island vacation. The pristine shores, cerulean sky and the invigorating water. We already have that vivid picture in our mind of what this tropical island paradise can offer us but there are so many other details of Kalanggaman Island that a picture cannot convey. This is what this blog post offers you  an insight of the 10 best kept secrets of Kalanggaman Island.       


In my years of solo travel in faraway provinces and remote areas I never had any unexplained encounter until that trip happened a few years ago in Lake Sebu. My idea for supernatural things are purely fictional and love the creativity told about them until that day. I never told anyone this story because it didn't make any sense and have no proof whatsoever of what happen on that night. Lakes got really creepy after this experience and I never go near them alone anymore.


There is no argument that Cebu is surely blessed with alluring islands that meet anyone's expectation and might even exceed it. Bantayan, Sumilon, Malapascua, Gibitngil to name a few but none as diverse as the island group of Camotes. Blessed with an awe inspiring lake, stunning caves, magnificent waterfalls and those unspoiled white beaches that mostly lured tourists in. This wasn't always my top choice to recommend in Cebu but all that changed during my visit last weekend. 

And so the big week for our Cordillera Region getaway that we have been waiting for a year has finally come and I was tasked to research and make the itinerary for my travel buddies on this trip. I'm not fond of doing all of these things but I'm happy to obliged because I spear headed this getaway.

Don't you ever wish to go in a relaxing cruise some place where pollution is not an issue and everything around you is brimming with life and green foliage. Now amazon has made this river cruise thing famous but danger lurks in every corner of that river and somewhere in the country another favorite river cruise exist in Bohol but tourists usually crowd out that experience. If you want a solitary river cruise experience where not a lot of people knows of then Bojo River Cruise in Cebu might be perfect for you. The water is so clean it glows like emerald and can be as transparent as diamond when you held it in your palm. What makes it even more exciting is you end the cruise into the foreboding sea with beautiful limestone formation lining the exit like gateway to a hidden paradise where beautiful corals & colorful sea creatures awaits you.

La Union is the last place I would thought to be a good place for some waterfall chasing adventure but boy! was I wrong. A few weeks ago a friend brought to my attention of what looks like a breathtaking waterfall in La Union featured in the movie Flotsam with the ever seductive temptress in local scene Solenn Heussaff. That moment builds my curiosity of La Union and as I go along with my research I've found 11 waterfalls and counting. Waterfall ranging from stunning to an okay with a difficulty that would make me question my safety chasing that waterfall to a walk in the park scenario. As I was getting excited for my trip in that province next weekend I've collated all the waterfalls in this post and credited the photos & blogs that would make anyone want to go there. Without further ado, here are the waterfalls in La Union I could find, their locations and how to get there.
