My tour of Batanes was a far cry from my previous trips of the different places in my country. It lags so much behind the modernization that it does not have luxurious hotel and huge shopping malls to boast. But while it is devoid of modern amenities, the island province emanates charm that soothes, mesmerizes and captivates. Now, that we are in our last leg of our tour, we will savor every minute to feast on another breathtaking sights and to capture memorable memories.
Marlboro Hills is the most stunning scenic spot in South Batan
We were in high spirit as we started exploring the North Batan, the prelude in our Batanes tour. Prior this trip, I just could not contain my excitement that I had several sleepless nights imagining our close encounter with the rolling hills, the well-manicured grasses, the vast expansive view of the sea and the lighthouses. I prayed that our three-day stay in the island province will promise a very memorable escapade considering our month of visit is January, a month where rain frequents Batanes.
When you are on a trip with high-spirited travel buddies, you feel like time runs so fast. So what you will do is to soak up the remaining vacation vibes and savor every morsel of time. For our last day in Hong Kong, me and my office mates (Team Finance) will visit a traditional village in Ngong Ping area in Lantau Island. We will immerse ourselves in a relaxing tour where the natural environment, custom and culture of the island are still richly preserved. We will start our exciting trip in riding the crystal cable car. And so here we go!
This is our second day in Hong Kong and the top two tourist attractions that highlighted our trip are the The Peak and Hong Kong Disneyland. I was so elated to get back. But as much as I want to frolic on rides and attractions in Disneyland again, I will only bring my office mates here for I will explore other notable places in the city which I did not visit yet. I will spend another worthy escapade with my two friends, Dayleen and Amie who are both working in the city.
see our happy faces? we are now ready for the exciting ride at The Tram
While my office mates will take delight in a fantastic adventure in Hong Kong Disneyland, me, Dayleen and Amie (my friends based in Hong Kong) will bring me to other famous places in the city which I did not visit yet. I felt somewhat guilty because my team will miss this opportunity. But as what has been said, Hong Kong is not complete without Disneyland so I want them to fully enjoy the rides and attractions in this theme park. Anyway, we will be visiting Macau on our third day and Lantau Island on our last day.
The elegance and sophistication of this Victorian-style Hotel was captivating
