Siquijor caps my 80 Philippine provinces

Categories Places
Lazi kumbento, the biggest in the Philippines. I finally visited all Philippine provinces when I visited Siquijor for a photo/writing assignment

Covered all Philippine provinces with a visit at Siquijor
With my plans of going to Siquijor always getting canceled or postponed, I finally decided, three weeks ago, to book a ticket for Cebu to specifically get to this island province, the last one that I haven’t visited of the country’s 80 provinces.

And so, last Saturday, I woke up at 2 AM and left for the South Bus Terminal from my home in Cebu, rode the bus, a fast craft crossing the Tanon Straight and finally, sailing on a Delta fastcraft that finally brought me to this mystical island. And thus, I completed visiting all Philippine provinces.

When I did get to Lazi, I just spent most of the two days working for an architectural magazine assignment for Lazi’s massive kumbento (colloquially, parochial house) which I got after pitching it to the editor. I didn’t have time to go around except when I was invited to a fiesta in Talingting, E. Villanueva municipality and that was just it.

Now, I have reason to come back and go around the island and discover its hidden wonders and mystery. Soon.

Ang Langyaw’s trip made possible by Airphilexpress, the fastest growing budget airline in the Philippines!
