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.
The best attraction of Pagudpod is it’s beach. What I love the about the place is the serenity. It is not crowded and the place is very clean. The color of the light here is very warm. It makes everything look golden. This is something that I have never seen in other beaches before.
If you love old architecture then the Paoay church is a must visit. It is grand in scale with a very European feel. You can shop and eat around area. Enjoy the parks and the surrounding buildings which is also lovely to take photos.
The weather was perfect when we went here. The colors were so bright. The blue sky, the green trees and the white and red colors of the building were so saturated. Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, also known as Burgos Lighthouse, is a cultural heritage structure in Burgos, Ilocos Norte, that was established during the Spanish Colonial period in the Philippines. It was first lit on March 30, 1892.
It was a hot afternoon when we went to Kapurpurawan in Ilocos Norte. So the colors that day was very graphic. The deep blue sky against the chalk white colors of the rocks were so vivid. It felt surreal to be in that place. It is a great spot to take fashion photos because the colors can look commercial. I suggest that you go on a morning to avoid the intense heat.
