BATANES

Batanes

Batanes is a group of small islands at the northernmost part of the Philippines. It is well-known for its people, the Ivatans who are genuinely kind and helpful, its towering lighthouses, Spanish-influenced stone houses, century-old churches and exquisite panoramas.

I have always yearned to try out new things but I tend to procrastinate or too reluctant to take that first step to making it happen and being an introvert only made it even harder.

Seize the moment! Let us all Go Out, Travel, Enjoy and Live Life!

    Batanes is one of our dream destinations. We’ve seen photos of the islands; they are so scenic. Unfortunately, we have to save and plan for it thoroughly as we are living in Cebu. And going to Batanes from Cebu (with connecting flights in Manila) eats up a huge chunk of our budget.

      The fare going to Batanes is like going for a trip abroad na nga eh. Grabbing a great seat sale would be you best option. But it’s not just the place that is really beautiful and peaceful, the people are too.

      Hi Shikha,
      Glad that you have given a thought of coming to the Philippines. Batanes would be great place for you to start. Aside from the spectacular sites, the locals’ genuineness and generosity are just as amazing. Safe travels. 🙂
