My trip to Batanes , Philippines

The breathtaking Batanes is one of the spectacular provinces found in the Philippines. If you haven’t heard about this island, beautiful Batanes is located in the northernmost part of the Philippines and claims to be the smallest province in the country. Basco is the capital of the astonishing island. It is popularly known as the” Home of the Winds.” The region becomes exceptional because of its astounding coastline with a different sequence of white-cream sand beaches, hidden coves, rocky coasts, and ridges. 

Batanes is perfect for those tourists who love the warm air most of the time, sometimes fresh and crisp. The beauty of the place will make your heart jump for exceeding joy. Not only that, the island is peaceful and laid-back, also the perfect retreat where you can sit back, relax, and savor the cool breeze and the heat of the sun. Summertime is the best season to visit Batanes, which is around March to June. It is a time where rainfalls are minimal and experience sunny days. You wouldn’t have the problem to explore from place to place if you visit during the summer. 

The beauty of Batanes is so stunning that it cannot indeed be expressed in words. Stone houses are one of the most-visited cultural attractions in the province. Ivatan houses are made of meter-thick limestone and coral walls as well as cogon grass roof. The now-famous stone houses for a great cause: to protect them against the severe environmental conditions.

When you landed, Batanes was as beautiful as ever, including the people who are living there. One of the most unusual facts about Batanes in terms of safety is its claim to a zero crime rate. Violent crime is totally unheard of on the islands, and indeed lesser theft is a unique manifestation. 

All in all my trip was worth every penny. The most expensive part was the flight over there! Luckily I was able to get out of the country before the coronavirus hit and halted all flights. Unfortunately when we got home, my garage door wouldn’t open and we were stuck outside! So big shoutout to https://www.directserviceoverhead.com for saving the day. The owner himself arrived in minutes. Thanks for reading my blog, and I do hope the situation across the world tones down soon so I can write more about my travel adventures.
