5 Places for Soul Searching in the Philippines
In the mood to go solo? Find yourself in any of these breathtaking places.

In this long journey we call life, we often find ourselves lost in the midst of everything. Sometimes all we need is a break and a great destination to help rediscover ourselves. It may not work for everyone, buttraveling in itself is a wonderful excuse to leave everyday life temporarily and discover new things. Here are 5 places you can go soul searching in the Philippines.

  1. Sagada

    If the movie That Thing Called Tadhana has not convinced you yet, let us break down why Sagada is the perfect place to find yourself. First, it has a beautiful climate. If you hate the heat of summer, the cool weather up in the mountains will surely be a welcome change. Second and most importantly, the Hanging Coffins of Sagada are a marvel best seen in real life. Let its mysterious and haunting aura inspire you to reflect and learn more about yourself.

  2. Batanes

    It may not be cheap to fly to Batanes, but it will definitely be worth all your time and effort. This beautiful province is located on the northern most tip of the Philippines, and it is composed of three major islands and seven islets. The moment you step into Batanes Island, you will be transported to a whole new world because of how the Spaniards’ influence is still so evident in its architecture. With its green pastures and stunning beaches, Batanes is a place you’ll never want to leave.

  3. Palaui Island, Cagayan

    The island of Palaui in Cagayan is a marvel still mostly undiscovered by tourists. It was the setting of two seasons of the popular US reality TV series, Survivor. In 2010, it was named one of the world’s 100 best beaches by CNN. Most of the island is made up of grasslands and mountain ranges, good for trekking and hiking. A nice site to visit on the island is Cape Engaño as well as Cape Engaño Lighthouse at its summit.
