The Chronicles of Love Mindanao: Enchanted River of Hinatuan Surigao del Sur

The Chronicles of Love Mindanao: Enchanted River of Hinatuan Surigao del Sur | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

According to locals, fish swam out from the depth of the river every 12:00 noon and 3:00 in the afternoon which add up to its enchanting beauty. I couldn't wait to jump to the crystal blue water but my stomach growls out of hunger so we head first to the adjacent mini-seafood market for lunch.

ALIWAGWAG FALLS: The Highest Waterfalls in the Philippines. | The Travel Teller

ALIWAGWAG FALLS: The Highest Waterfalls in the Philippines. | The Travel Teller | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

I grew up hearing beautiful stories about Aliwagwag Falls. Folklore has it that the Waterfalls is a gift by the gods to the Mandaya Tribe of Cateel. It is their source of living and fountain of their lives. When I was a kid, I never had the privilege to see the beauty of the Falls. It wasn’t easy to get there before.

We noticed how some of the structures were on stilts. Apparently, when the tide gets high the sandbar vanishes leaving the structures ‘floating’. We did nothing but chill and forget about everything on the outside world. We had the island at that moment and I couldn’t ask for more.

12 green spaces in Metro Manila you should go to now | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it
Go (coco)nuts! Share this story with your friends. These days, Metro Manila appears to be in a relentless pursuit to build more buildings and malls. Progress is good, but the huge appetite for urban space seems to overlook the need to develop more parks or conserve more open green spaces. Which is depressing when you consider how studies have long shown that parks and open spaces provide both health and economic benefits to a city and its people. There’s growing evidence that “proximity to parks
