International and local tourist arrivals rose in the Philippines last 2018 and expected to increase this year. With the continuous aggressive campaign of our government. I’m positive that there will be more people traveling around our country this 2019.

One, if not the most underrated province of Panay Island is Antique. It is situated in the western section of Panay Island, borders Aklan in the northeast, and Capiz and Iloilo in the southeast. Unlike its neighboring provinces are known for their popular tourist destinations (e.g., Boracay in Aklan, Gigantes Islands in Iloilo), Antique is often seen as a side-trip than a prime destination.
What most people are not aware of is that this elongated stretch of land occupies the entire western side of Panay island, bounded by the rugged central mountains and has long stretches of white sand. Its natural beauty still a little untouched by modernity has hidden gems waiting to be explored.

- Carabao Island, Romblon
Hambil Island, as the locals call it, better known as Carabao Island is a slice of tropical paradise which has been described as Boracay from 20 to 30 years ago.
An island facing Boracay, roughly 30 minutes boat ride away, is a beautiful place that is still relatively pristine. Crystal clear water, rich marine life, powdery white sand, tall coconut trees, and some less developed roads.
For the longest time, Carabao Island has been the second best island to Boracay. Many tourists in Boracay would take day tours to Carabao Island or stay there for a couple of days to enjoy its more serene vibe.

If an airline company would offer a seat sale today, I wonder how many people would think of going to Virac, Catanduanes. Probably only a few.
Most people would be excited to book a flight going to the most famous destinations in the Philippines such as Boracay, Palawan, and Bohol, or would fly internationally. Catanduanes is probably last on the list of travelers. Maybe, it’s not even on their radar. That I see as a blessing and a curse at the same time.
