    Default Batanes Islands Nature Trek (Philippines)

    Well, following advice from Ron aka Walingwaling in the "Eye Candy->surrounding negros, philippines" section, I've decided to post some nature, landscape, photos of that beautiful place located in the northernmost tip of the main island of Luzon in the Philippines which has been designated by the UNESCO as a world cultural heritage site. Nature and plants around is really beautiful!

    I dedicate this post to BD for his "dream" to visit the Philippines someday.

    This is a "must-see, must-visit" place for any traveler visiting the Philippines. Just one catch though - the best (and safest) time to visit Batanes is during the March-May summer season when there are no typhoons. You can just imagine Batanes is a group of small scattered islands at the top and on the tip of the the Philippines where it is open (and with a grand view) to the Pacific Ocean and South China Seas - it's a real windy, fresh, pristine and beautiful place. It is like you have travelled back in time where life is so simple and so peaceful. The people are so friendly and so genuine .... I really Love this place - no where in the world is a place like this. Unlike some places in the world where there are some sites that are outstanding and breath-taking in one aspect, Batanes is different in the sense that anywhere you turn your head, everything around you is beautiful. It is a very humbling experience to visit that place and when you return back to the fast-paced city you will never be the same again!

    So here goes:
