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.
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.
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.
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.
Balite Fall is located in Cavite. We went here because of it’s proximity and relax in a modest cool natural garden. The place looks very provincial with it’s make shift bamboo cottages.
