Smart Backpacker: The Paradise Town of Bongao, Tawi-Tawi

Smart Backpacker: The Paradise Town of Bongao, Tawi-Tawi | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it
From Sanga-Sanga Airport, I was fetched by Ms. Joy Que, my former student in FEU and she was the one who arranged the tour, provided the accommodation, the sumptuous and belly-breaking lunch, and most importantly, the necessary security during my stay in Bongao, Tawi-Tawi. 

Before we started with my one-day escapade, she decided to drop by at the local shipbuilding facilty in Bongao for boats plying to Sabah.

Traveling Morion | Let's explore 7107 Islands: Iligan City | Dodiongan Falls

Traveling Morion | Let's explore 7107 Islands: Iligan City | Dodiongan Falls | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it
Dodiongan Falls is located in Brgy. Digkilaan, Iligan City; in estimation, it is somewhere between 14-15km from the city proper. It is a 20-meter high water splitting beauty that will surely take your breath away. It contains a large pool of cold (I should say refreshing) water that is perfect for swimming and it has diving spots where travelers can try without having the fear of bumping into rocks. We’re not that too lucky during our visit because the basin’s water is not as clear as what we’ve expected due to heavy rains the past few days.
