Surigao del Sur – a fully packed 1 day trip

Mindanao has plenty to offer when it comes to natural wonders. Each province has something to boast for. One of the provinces is Surigao del Sur. Just recently, the long holiday vacation made me able to visit some of the places Surigao del Sur. It was at the end of August that two holidays came…

Bao-Bao Falls – the humble beauty

Lianga maybe as rural as you can imagine, but hidden within its trees and mountains is a sweet spot sleeping in peace.
