Take me where the horses run wild


Mention Batanes and images of rolling hills, stone houses, light houses, friendly people come to mind. Only a few people associate Batanes with horses. But when you come to think of it, horses and rolling hills together create a surreal image. In fact, it is one reason out of many, why I love the place.







Imagine the wind on your face, while you are standing on top of a hill, the ocean not far, with the image of horses running wild. No place is quite like it. At least in the Philippines.



How to Get There:

Seair (http://flyseair.com/) flies twice daily to Basco, Batanes. To minimize on cost (one way costs Php 7,039.20) watch out for promos that Seair regularly gives away — Feb and Sept, for half the price during the Philippine Travel Tour Expo and the Philippine Travel Mart, and for various discounts year-round online.

  3. Batanes is one of my dream destinations. 🙂 I love your pictures and it inspires me to save up so that I can go to Batanes personally in the future. Hope other airlines can offer flights to Batanes too. 🙂

    • The only thing you need to save up for is the plane ticket. Everything else in Batanes is affordable.

      Sana nga maging mas mura na ang plane fare papunta dun… 🙂
