BATAN SOUTH TOUR: House of Dakay, Honesty Cafe, and Malboro Country (Part 2)

by Abigail Javellana

Basco, Batanes

We heard that the South Batan Tour was much more charming than that of North Batan. But how could that be, when we were already captured by the breathtaking landscapes of the North?!

South Batan is where you’ll find everything to love about Batanes--from the marvelous historical man-made structures, natural sceneries, and authentic Ivatan cuisine, down to taking part in the important cultural experience.

The South Batan Tour is a day tour covering the towns of Ivana, Mahatao, and Uyugan. The tour starts early in Mahatao and covers Chawa Viewdeck, San Jose Borromeo Church, Tayid Lighthouse, Diura fishing village, and Racuh a Payaman (Marlboro Country), then starts again after lunch to Imnajbu, Alapad, Uyugan Town, Ivana Town, Honesty Coffee Shop, and the oldest house in Basco.

Here's our itinerary with Kuya Roger of Bashi Tours, who showed us around South of Basco...

by Abigail Javellana

Basco, Batanes 

Batanes, you take my breathe away!

A trip to Batanes is something you'll have to do at least once in your lifetime. The country's northernmost province is one of the most sought-after tourism frontiers, gifted with its unique blend of breathtaking scenery, natural beauty, and well-preserved culture!

North Batan consists of the whole of Basco--from the picturesque Valugan boulder beach, Vayang rolling hills, and Basco lighthouse, to the Mount Carmel Chapel, Fundacion Pacita, the Japanese tunnels, and a weather station with a 360 view of the island!

Check out these awesome Batanes scenes from our northern Batan island tour...
