Batanes, a group of islands located in the northernmost tip of the Philippines, exudes a charm far from the tropical beauty of Boracay and Palawan. The islands, generally characterized by slopes, rolling hills, and beaches, are surrounded by the waters of the Pacific Ocean, West Philippine Sea, Luzon Strait and Balintang Channel. Meet the Ivatans and discover their cultures and traditions. Explore some of the ancient houses that line the streets of an abandoned village.
