When it comes to booking the travel experience of a lifetime, it is best to plan your itinerary according to what you are passionate about. If you love nature, you are likely to have very different priorities from people who enjoy spending time in big cities. To help make the decision easier for you, here is an overview of the typical things fancied by nature lovers and urban explorers.
Satisfied with my street dancing shots, I decided not to witness the showdown performances of contingents from five municipalities of Camiguin in the annual Lanzones Festival at the provincial Grand Stand in Mambajao. Instead of braving the scorching heat of the sun to witness the colorful display of costumes and the rhythmic-ethnic dance moves of the participants, (unplanned) I headed to Catarman to check its latest tourism offering- the Tuasan Falls.
Thanks to this year's long weekend on the second week of June, I had the chance to spend my post summer get-away in the paradise province of Camiguin...
The island of Camiguin is a beautiful place set in Mindanao, surrounded by the provinces of Bohol, Misamis Oriental, and Surigao del Norte. The province is considered as the country’s second smallest both in land area and population.
White Island is one of the most visited spots in the province for many tourists, whether local or foreign travelers. This beautiful island is C-shaped during low tide but the sea partially covers the edges during the high tide, reducing it to an “I”. Still, no matter the tide, the island is great to behold. Take a swim in its refreshing waters teeming with a delightful array of tropical marine life.
The sands and shapes, its crystal-clear waters, the locals and food, everything - I totally fell in-love with the island's charm and beauty! Why? Here are my Top 10 Photos of this must visit Camiguin's White Island.

The Masskara Festival is something to look forward to this October. Yep, I know it is still a long way to go before October comes but it is always best to prepare ahead of time.

Observed during the Holy Week, this annual religious festival is quite different from the rest of the festivals in the country. Masks are worn by participants so they would like Roman centurions. These centurions march across the town in search of Longinus, their former comrade who they must now punish for converting to Christianity.
