Singapore is known as one of the best places to travel with family, and just this year, Lonely Planet has ranked Singapore as the world’s number one country to travel to next year. Why not? Singapore is like traveling the world without leaving the island. When I move here, I was thinking of Singapore only as a major shopping destination for shopaholics. A stopover for travelers to explore its neighboring countries—Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the list goes on. It never crossed my mind that Singapore has a lot to offer for adventure seeker who is in constant search for that off the beaten path. All you need to do is explore.
Sabang is known as the entry point for the Underground River Tour. When we went to Palawan, we weren’t able to book for the underground river tour. Since Sabang is part of our itinerary, we decided to push through with our plan. We love to explore new places, and I think Sabang is still worth our visit. I wasn’t wrong about this. People might not know this, but there are a lot of things you can do in this small town besides going on an Underground River Tour. One of these is the Mangrove Paddle Boat Tour.
Nacpan Beach | Twin Beach | Nagkalit-Kalit Waterfalls
We initially agreed to take the Tour C for our second day in El Nido, but since my cousin doesn’t want to do any island hopping, we take the Inland tour instead. We traveled 25km up north from El Nido town riding a tricycle. It was a long and bumpy road to Nacpan beach. But everything was all worth it.
Situated in Culasi Channel off the western coast of Culasi, Antique. It is easy to see why Malalison Island is also known as the ‘Gem of Culasi Channel’. While Boracay has been the main attraction in the part of western visayas, the Malalison island retained its mysterious appeal, and left unexplored by tourists. With an area of 50 hectares, Malalison have a lot to offer to tourists and adventure travel seekers alike.
2. Culture | Try a native dish. They said, that the way to know the culture of a place is through their food. One of Malalison’s native dish is grilled fresh pugita/octopus. I can guarantee you, all sea food in this area are fresh.
3. Nature | Malalison has the best diving spot for divers who admire the nature underwater. Exploring the world under you is also one of the best way to appreciate nature. With Malalison’s crystal clear water, I’m pretty sure you’ll clearly see the different species living down there.
4. Sand | Malalison Island has fine white sand that can be compared to that of Boracay’s. This island have a magnificent sandbar that can be enjoyed by everyone, and also the best location for a romantic date.
5. Sun | Summer wouldn’t be perfect without the heat of the sun. And here in Malalison Island, sun is everywhere.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your Nivea Sun block, head down to Malalison Island and enjoy your summer with the world’s no.1 sun care brand. 🙂
