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.
Dingalan is not a typical beach that most people expect. It does not have a white sand. The water is dark. The rocks and waves can be big but if there is one great thing about the place is the unique and breathtaking scenery.
We went to Napinto Cave as a side trip before heading to Alibijaban. It is located in San Narciso in Quezon Province. I’m not sure why they call it a cave since I did not see one. Maybe it has that I’m not aware. This island is very different from where we would usually go. It is uninhabited. We went here for the rock formation primarily which has this arch. We could not even swim here because there are a lot of jelly fish in the area.
Alibajan island has a very diverse mood. When it’s sunny the place can look happy like any tropical island but when it’s cloudy it can be very mystical because of the many enclosed mangroves and crows flying around. It made me feel like I’m in a fairy land waiting for a witch or enchanted creature to appear. I just love how many types of emotion that the place can evoke in me. The colors can transform so fast.
