Mount Pinatubo

Crystal Beach Resort

Zambales is a haven known for pulling in tired and overworked big-city employees, looking for a quick weekend getaway, and with good reason: it's just a few hours' drive from Metro Manila, and is nearly as beautiful as any other beach in Visayas or Mindanao!

Sagada Hanging Coffins

Have you ever wondered how the ancient Igorots honored their dead, not being able to bury them high up in the mountains? They honor them in creative ways: by hanging the coffins high up on cliffs, allowing the dead to become one with the skies, and their spirits one with the heavens.


Calle Crisologo

Vigan is renowned the world over for its efforts in keeping the old ways alive, and has been featured numerous times in international publication for its superb care for Calle Crisologo. So, in case you've never been to this fairytale of a destination, now is the time to go.



Boracay is a tourist destination known worldwide. One look at the fine white sand or the sunset and you'll immediately see why.
