Sagada is a town in the Cordillera Mountains, within the Philippines’ Mountain Province and Lake Danum is one of its landmarks where people usually bid goodbye to a great day. It is one of the ideal place to go if you want to be at peace with the nature as you await the setting sun over the mountains of Ampacao.

Lake Danum is located along the western part of Sagada near the town of Besao; a 4 kilometers away from the town center of Sagada, and you must be there at least 30 minutes before the sun sets to enjoy the view.  It is a small lake surrounded by pine trees with a relaxing atmosphere, nice sunset.. and some carabao shit! Ahw unsa bah oie!? Just kidding hehe

A must-try when you visit Lake Danum in Sagada is Shifrayah’s Yogurt for only P35.00 each or 3 for P100.00 😉 They served the best damn yogurt I’ve ever had!

If you’re thinking that you could only see the grandeur of the rice terraces in Banaue, think again for Candijay will prove you wrong. The municipality of Candijay is two hours away from Tagbilaran City and approximately 94 kilometers east, popular for its cold springs, waterfalls, and rice terraces.

The terraces were formed from elevated areas converted into farmlands by the natives of barangay Cadapdapan long time ago. Usually seen in pictures, the terraces’ dominating colors are golden yellow color which reminds them are the wealth left for them from their ancestors that are indeed worth remembering.

Dumog Sandbar

A beautiful summer getaway with pristine stretch of white sand and crystal-clear waters located in Tubigon, Bohol near Bilangbilangan Island. It is said to be an extension of the island where Tito Obguia founded and developed the place.

Best time to visit is in the morning when it was low tide for you can see its sand that stretches for a hundred meters off sea. The tide usually goes up at noon, and this beautiful islet goes below a few inches of water which gives a different kind of fun as well.

It is a paradise waiting to be discovered way back 2010 (as seen on the pictures). Sad to say that people were stealing tons of sand from this islet leading to the point that some stretches of the sandbar disappear.

Hayaan Islet

Hayaan Islet is located in Tubigon, Province of Bohol, Central Visayas, Philippines and is nearby to Buenos Aires, Inanoran, and Budlanan Island. The estimate terrain elevation above sea level is four meters. This is a private property and there is no entrance fee nor environmental fee because nobody’s taking care of this place nowadays.

I just visited this islet last February 20 (this year, 2016) and it was so different from the last time we stayed here (overnight) in the year 2007 if I’m not mistaken. Most of the cottages were damaged due to typhoons and some of the plants before doesn’t exist anymore. You can also see some changes in color on the Bermuda grass.
