Top 4 Things to See and Discover in Sabtang Batanes
September 6, 2016
If you’ve never traveled before, you would never expect such a beautiful, tranquil place in the Philippines. But since Pinas is an island made of tiny islands, some of which have only been traversed by extreme adventure seekers, it’s no wonder that this special place still holds the title of total tranquility.
If Batan Island has the Honesty Coffee Shop, Sabtang Island welcomes all tourist to its Conscience Cafe & Souvenir Shop. Aren’t they all well-themed?
Well-Maintained Historical Churches/Chapels.
While I know, there are tons of churches in the whole of Batanes, Sabtang prides itself of its own churches as well. Here are some of the ones that really captured my eyes as we journeyed along. Notice how they are all well-maintained and clean to the look? It just goes without saying that the locals here have a respect for their own religion.
The Admirable Effort that Went Behind the Building of the Stone-houses
I don’t know how to emphasize this a lot better. But the stone-houses in this island, particularly, still mesmerizes me. It’s even made unique once you hear the story of how they used to make these houses in the olden days. I’m sure your chosen tour guide will gladly relay that to you.
Remember this scene from Yeng Constantino’s hit MTV song, Ikaw? Yup, I’ve always wondered where that place was. Now I know. It’s even prettier in person.
Breath-taking Scenic Cliff Views
I now believe that remote islands offer the best and most tranquil view of the ocean side. Photos and videos really don’t do any justice to the beautiful creation God has made. You really have to feel the wind blowing against your face and whiff the scent of the ocean beneath to really appreciate these exquisite views.
