      Thanks Rachel. The Alona beach was stunning and not that touristic at all. You should definitely add it to your bucket list when visiting the Philippines.

    These are seriously some amazing photos! Makes me want to go back to the Philippines :) Let me know if you find yourself in Korea anytime soon!

      Hey Drew. Thanks a lot. I was thinking of teaching in South Korea after my master’s degree which is gonna be September 2015! I’ll keep you posted and hope you’re enjoying your time there!

    It looks like such a beautiful country – I never knew much about it since I started reading some great blog posts about the place. Like the appearance of your hostel room – looks quite tropical!

    I love the one 4 across and 3 down of the two little girls. Ultimately it is the locals who make a place special. I haven’t been to the Phillippines, but your photos definitely make me want to there. Soon.

      Thank you Meryl! I do agree with you on that. It’s always about who you are with, not where you are :)!

  4. Those are some great impressions of the Philippines, Agness! While I love the two little girls with their pink hair band and all of your photos of Banaue, my absolute favorite still remain the colorfully decorated Jeepneys. They really are as Filipino as it gets… :)

  5. All the pics are great but I’m partial to the photos of the people because I just love the Filipino people. My husband and I also preferred the rice terrace region over the beaches because of the cooler temp’s and the huge amount of trash we saw on the more touristy beaches. We were fortunate enough to be there (thanks to my husband’s planning) for San Fernando’s infamous passionate play with Reuben. What a surreal experience!

    Safe, Happy Travels! :-)

  6. Great shots, and I love the slide show feature. It’s a tough choice, but I have to say that my favorite is the view of Banaue from your hostel window. I loved seeing the Philippines through your eyes!

    The rice paddies in Banaue! I really want to go there – the countryside looks gorgeous, so lush!

  8. Constance - Foreign Sanctuary

    Wow! This collection of photos is amazing!! You definitely captured the true essence of the people and the culture. I love the smiling faces of the children!!

  9. They are all nice photos guys, but if I have to choose I love the one of the apple and cinnamon buns and the local guy in Banaue.

    1. Agness Walewinder

      HAHAHA! I thought you would prefer a picture of veggies from local market in Banaue :P There were some carrots there!! :D

  10. The rice terraces look so beautiful. I love the wide range of photos, it captures the place so much better then just showing scenery. I also love the shot of the older gentleman. Awesome.

  11. Hi Agness,
    My favourites are the fishing boats and the old man in Banaue with feathers on his head. Intriguing!

  12. So many lovely shots! I’m always partial to food photos so I love those little packets of veg and noodles and the local stores. And the photos of the children and cool trucks in downtown Banaue are so great!
