Travel Bucket List – Philippines Edition

27 Nov

It has always been a dream of mine to have a travel blog because that would mean I’m actually doing some real traveling. Another dream of mine is to be a solo traveller, you know…for that drama effect. Haha! Right now, I can only content myself with making bucket lists and stalking airline companies for special promos. Eventually, I’d want to travel the world, but it has come to my attention that I do live in a very beautiful country. Poverty and political drama aside, the Philippines is such a wonderful place to be in.

Here are some of my dream destinations around the country:

Image
1. Coron, Palawan
“The most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen” -according to a friend…well, I’m utterly convinced!

Image

2. Lake Sebu, South Cotabato
-The T’boli tribes are one of the main dwellers of this area and would you just look at that beautiful lake?! 

Image

3. Vigan, Ilocos Sur
-I’ve always wanted to try that Ilocos Empanada and to also “transport back in time.”

Image
4. Hinatuan River, Surigao del Sur
-This river is so deep, the water is blue. Also, no one has ever successfully managed to find out where the source of this river is. 

Image5. Batanes
-I want to go to the Honesty Cafe, take jump shots in the grassy fields with the grazing cows, and to pretend to be Julie Andrews from the Sound of Music. 

Image

6. Mt. Kitanglad, Bukidnon
-It’s an inactive volcano and the fourth highest mountain in the country. 

Image
7. Hanging Coffins, Sagada
-This is still being practiced today, but for a very high fee, because being buried in this manner is of great honor.

Image
8. Banaue Rice Terraces, Ifugao Province
-It’s the 8th wonder of the world!!!…enough said.

Image
9. Sarangani
-Think beautiful white sand beaches sans the capitalism. 

Image
10. Bongao Peak, Tawi-Tawi
-I just want to go to the most far flung corner of the country to Bongao Peak which is actually a sacred mountain for the locals…and I’m very interested in Tawi-Tawi ever since I met a friend who is part of an indigenous tribe here.

    I really want to travel around Philippines, too! So many places to visit. I haven’t event gone to the nooks and crannies of Metro Manila.

      We should definitely make it a point to get to see more of our own country then! 😉
