One of my favorite spot in Siquior is the Cambugahay falls, it has three levels of short but wide size that is not very intimidating to jump in. This is why many people enjoy doing there Tarzan jump with the vines on the trees. It is not very hard going to this place, you will only descend to long cemented stairs. It is only a challenge going up for those who are not that fit.
The San Isidro Labrador Parish Church commonly known as Lazi Church, is a Roman Catholic church in the municipality of Lazi, Siquijor, Philippines within the jurisdiction of the Diocese of Dumaguete. It became an independent parish in 1857 under the advocacy of Saint Isidore the Laborer.
When we got here I notice some huge beautiful Balite trees along the road and an old big convent in front of it which is being repaired. The church has a rustic fell with a European style. There were locals who offers to sell red candles for those who will be praying . The place is very peaceful.
Located in the beautiful and mystical island of Siquior is Salagdoong Beach. The island offers a lot of resort but the best attraction of this place is the cliff jump. The height can be intimidating but it will give you that adrenaline rush if you manage to conquer your fear. It offers a lot of cottages and a place to stay and eat. The water were clear and the sand is white. The place has a fun vibe and it is a good place to socialize. Continue reading “Salagdoong Beach, Siquior”
This place is one of my favorite in Baguio because it is not crowded and the garden is very relaxing and beautiful. There were sculptures, ethnic huts where you can take pretty photos, at the gate there are elderly Igorots in their traditional outfit where you can take photos with for a fee. The flowers bloom before summer, so it is better to during those months.
Bell Church is a Taoist Temple in Baguio city. The place is not that big but it offers a Chinese architecture for your travel photos. It has a garden but you can’t walk around there.
Tamawan Village is a sanctuary for local artist in Baguio city. They have an art gallery, souvenir shops and a cafe. You can also enjoy the garden and fish ponds here. It also have a replica of traditional houses were you can stay for the night.
The strawberry farm in La Trindad, Baguio city is one popular tourist destination although it is not much a pretty spot to take photos but it is the experience of harvesting strawberries that makes people want to go here. There are also souvenirs shops around the area where you can buy your “pasalubong”. The place is not always available for harvesting so better check out the season before visiting.
Mount Ulap which is located in Itogon, Benguet is one unique mountain I have climbed. It is different from the lush jungle feel that I was used to. This one has a lot of pine trees and the path is wide and open. Hiking here can be very relaxing if you are not in a hurry. The weather is cool although there is not much shade to protect you from the sun but this place can get very cloudy and foggy in the afternoon. If you are aiming to get a clearing for your photos. I would suggest that you start your hike very early in the morning.
Pandin lake is very serene and mysterious because the water is dark and still but if you are with friends the place can be very active. I don’t think it is a good idea going here alone because the main activity here is to rent a bamboo raft and eat on the other side of the lake and swim. Part also of the package is going to Yambo lake which is very near Pandin lake. Although we are not allowed to get close to it for some reason. You are just allowed to view and take photos.
For those wanting to have a touch of Spanish and Nostalgia with there photos, Calle Crisologo is the place. This town is a heritage site for it’s old architecture that dates back during the Spanish colonial period. You will find here stores selling local products and modern restaurants combined. You can also ride horse carriage for that old travel experience.
