Manila Tourist Directory (4 videos -part 1 - 4)

Binondo, Manila

Binondo is an enclave in Manila primarily populated by ethnic Chinese living in the Philippines. It is the oldest Chinatown in the world, established in 1594. Historically, this was where the Spanish permitted converted sangleys, their indigenous Filipino wives, and their mixed-race descendants, the mestizos de sangley or Chinese mestizos, to reside. Similarly, Parían, an area near Intramuros, was where the Spanish first restricted unconverted Chinese immigrants. They allowed sangley settlement at Parían because it was within the range of Intramuros' cannons, and they felt they could control any uprising from the labourers.

Nestled in a valley at the upper end of the Malitep tributary 5000 ft above sea level and 275 km north of Manila, is the secluded town of Sagada. Known for it's hanging coffins, other popular activities include spelunking, rappelling, rock climbing, and trekking to waterfalls. Me, I vote for its quiet, secluded, and relaxing appeal. This is definitely the place to go if you want to get away from the chaos of Manila and enjoy a little serenity.

Sagada Panag-apoy ritual

from preparation week to the evening NOV 1.

Every first day of November, Sagadians gather at the cemetery to remember their departed loved ones. But instead of lighting traditional candles, they use woods of old pine trees locally called “saeng“, a flammable wood from old pine trees, to create bonfires on the graves previously blessed by a priest, on the tombs of their deceased loved ones. They call it “panag-apoy”, a tradition long been practiced in Sagada, Mountain Province.

Discover Palawan

Palawan is 1,768 islands of pristine white beaches, dramatic rock formations, secret coves and underground mysteries. An untamed land, a nature lover's paradise and an adventurer's dream: Palawan certainly lives up to its image as the last frontier. The island province has been declared a nature sanctuary of the world and for good reason. It is wrapped in a mantel of rainforests, outstanding dive sites, majestic mountains, primeval caves and shimmering beaches. It bursts with exotic flora and fauna and is surrounded by a coral shelf that abounds with varied and colourful marine life. The long narrow strip of the main island, located southwest of Manila, is around 425 kilometres long and 40 kilometres at its widest. On both sides of a backbone of tall mountain ranges, an irregular coastline meanders in intervals of vertical limestone cliff and sweeping white sand. This unique topography provides a wealth of diverse.

Culion Island, a former leper colony in Philippines

&

The Culion Leper Colony Coinage (Palawan Philippine Coins).

From 1/2 centavo to 1 peso, year 1913 to 1930. Between 1902 and 1904, the Commission of Public Health supervised the establishment of a leper colony on Culion Island in the China Sea, some 150 miles South-East of Manila. A decision to provide the colony with its own coins, valid only for use on the island, was delayed until 1913 when the first series, made by a private firm, Frank & Co., in Manila was introduced. Later issues were struck at the Manila Mint after it went into operation in 1920. In all, there were six dated issues and a total of 16 varieties made for the Culion leper colony. Two have special features which call for note. The probability is that the half centavo, issued only in 1913, was not put into circulation. By unofficial report 2,000 of the 1930 one-centavo pieces were minted. However, none are known to exist in any collection and it seems unlikely that any were actually issued. (Look ref. HERE)

Visayas: Island of the Painted - The pintados

Visayan Tattoo culture The Pintados (The Painted ones) Visayan: Batukan or Batikan is a term applied to the inhabitants of the Visayas during the Spanish colonization of the Philippines. The name was given to them because they painted their bodies with red clay - or, as some writers say, on account of their being tattooed. Both men and women wear their hair long and fastened in a knot on the crown of the head. The men tattoo their entire bodies with very beautiful figures, using small pieces of iron dipped in ink. This ink incorporates itself with the blood, and the marks are indelible. Source: Barangay: Sixteenth-Century Philippine Culture and Society by William Henry Scott

Who are the Visayan?

It is never too late to expand one's knowledge of the past. Embarrassing as it may be to the government that the Bisaya it has tirelessly repressed is indeed descended from the great Sri Vishaya, the pursuit of historical truth justifies itself. If not, then for the sake of our young who can only take so much of self-serving and subjective official Philippine history.

Bohol Tourism general & Eco Tourism

A few years ago, tourism in the island of Bohol was seasonal as the industry was yet starting to develop. But today, Bohol's tourism and is already an all-year-round industry. The island is richly blessed with so much natural, historical, and cultural beauties and wonders which attracted tourists from every corner of the globe. For the past 2 to 3 years, the industry has been growing rapidly such that the small domestic airport in its capital city could no longer conviniently accommodate the ever increasing influx of tourist arrivals in this paradise island. But hopefully soon, with the completion of the new Bohol Airport project, the problem of congestion will be solved and the influx of tourist arrivals is expected to greatly increased even more. If Bohol will be properly managed by its leaders and successors, it has the potential to develop like Singapore, considering that Bohol has a strategic geographical location and has very rich natural resources.

Located on Bohol Island, the Chocolate Hills cover approximately 20 square miles of the island, ranging between 98 to nearly 400 feet in height. 214 steps to reach the top, but there is a service walk-way for wheel-chair. at least 1,268 perfectly cone-shaped hills of about the same size. Hundreds of hills fill the horizon, symmetrical, and in the dry season, chocolate colored. Unfortunately these limestone hills are not as tasty as the chocolate kisses that inspired their name. The name comes from the deep brown color of the dried grass in summer. Besides their unusual color, the hills are interesting for their regular and symmetric shape. There are approximately 1500 of these remarkable hills in the Bohol province of the Philippines. There are several bizarre legends about the origins of these hills, all involving giants.

Once nearly wiped out by a landslide, a town in the Philippines finds a new way to manage natural disasters. More than 70 percent of St. Bernard and the surrounding area are highly vulnerable to flash floods, tsunamis, storms, and landslides, but there was no warning system in place until a landslide killed over 1,000 people in 2006. Now, local residents, government organizations, and NGOs have worked together to set up an early warning system that uses both indigenous knowledge and state of the art technology.
