Balay Dr. Niere by Kristina Cassandra T. Santos
“Built in 1928 during the American occupation, the Balay Dr. Dionisio Niere belonged to the first Doctor of Medicine of Boljoon. During the Second World War, this house was used as headquarters for the Japanese Imperial Army. It is now part of the popular Boljoon Heritage Trail.” Taken December 28, 2011 with a Canon 550D (18-55mm)

San Juanico Bridge at dusk by Norman Jay V. Avena. Taken at the Leyte-Samar border, October 2009 with a Nikon D80.

untalanbaclayon
Baclayon Church by Kiko Untalan
Taken inside the Baclayon church in May 2009 using the missus’s Nikon D90 camera. With 15 family members, we visited the church during our 3 day summer tour of Bohol. Of the several hundred photos I took during that trip, this is my favorite.

mercado banaue
The Rice Terraces of Batad by Michael Vincent Mercado
Taken December 2012 in Brgy. Batad, Banaue, Ifugao with a Canon EOS Kiss X4. Walking along the narrow paths of the 2000-year-old rice terraces requires calculated steps and great balance. Something that the natives do not have problems with. What they struggle with however, is the decreasing interest in agriculture among the young.

Portico of Baclayon Church by Jeffrey Catha Viri
Baclayon Church in Bohol was founded in 1596. Its portico is the focal point of its interiors. Taken September 6, 2009 with a Sony Cybershot DSC-TX10.

“Established in 1692, it is the oldest remaining original stone church in Cebu. In 1999, the National Historical Institute declared it a National Historical Landmark.”Taken December 28, 2011 with a Canon 550D (18-55mm)

A word from our sponsor

“With the Tigerair Transfer Service, your vacation begins the moment you board any of our daily direct flights to Kalibo from Manila, Clark, and Singapore,” says Olive Ramos, president and CEO of Tigerair Philippines. No more queueing up to buy tickets for multiple transfers from the airport to the boat port, no more getting hit with exorbitant “tourist rates”.

All you need is one ticket. As soon as you land in Kalibo, you are ushered to an air-conditioned bus for a scenic land transfer to Caticlan port, express boat transfer from Caticlan Port to Boracay Port, and land transfer from Boracay Port to your hotel—with your own priority lane.

The Tiger Transfer Service voucher may be purchased on board before landing in Kalibo International Airport, and at the check-in counters at the Manila and Clark Airports. To facilitate the Tiger Transfer Service, Tigerair Philippines tapped Aklan’s tourist transport service pioneer Southwest Tours Boracay Inc.

Tigerair Philippines is the first commercial airline to fly direct between Kalibo and Singapore. The carrier also flies to Clark, Bacolod, Cebu, Iloilo, Davao and Puerto Princesa, and to international destinations including Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore.

To celebrate the Chinese New Year, Tigerair offers one-way Domestic fares for Php88 and one-way International fares for Php888 if you book from January 27-29. Travel period for this promo is from February 1- March 29, 2014.

Tiger Traveller: The fourth set of finalists in our Boracay/Palawan photo contest

December 28, 2013 By: jessicazafra Category: Contest, Places, Traveling No Comments →

We’re giving away a round-trip Tigerair ticket to Kalibo, Aklan; Puerto Princesa, Palawan; or any Tigerair domestic destination in this month’s Tiger Traveller contest. To join, read this.

toribio el nido
Entry #27. Photographer: Abraham Toribio II. El Nido, Palawan, March 2009. Taken with a Canon PowerShot G10. “I always take pictures of sunsets wherever I go. I find the deep orange colors of the sky and the surrounding landscape breathtaking. I especially like this photo because it captures a fisherman walking towards his boat at the end of the day. It’s so casual and ordinary.”

tingga manoc-manoc
Entry # 28. Photographer: Frencel Tingga. Manoc-Manoc, Boracay, December 2011. Taken with a Nikon D3100. “Tulubhan, Monoc-Manoc of Boracay has a stunning view of Bulabog Beach, the rugged, windy side of the island and haven of wind and kite surfers. This is where I go whenever I want to avoid the crowded White Beach. The view here is equally beautiful and panoramic, and the strong sea breeze is invigorating.”

marianne_suba_bacuit_bay_at_night_el_nido
Entry #29. Photographer: Marianne Elize S. Suba. Bacuit Bay at night. Photo taken last August 2012 at El Nido, Palawan with a Canon EOS Kiss X3.

machado bacuit
Entry #30. Photographer: Ryan Machado. “Most island-hopping tours in El Nido end at 3 or 4 in the afternoon. Seeing the shore of Bacuit Bay lined with hotels and inns signals the end of the day’s tour, and in this case our El Nido 3-day getaway.” Taken in April 2013 with a Canon EOS 1000D.

galang morning
Entry #31. Photographer: April Galang. “My morning ritual in Boracay consists of getting strong coffee and calamansi muffins then eating them by the beach. This was the view that morning—calm sea, saturated sky, light not fully set in. I was only framing the lifeguard station and the kid walking then the bird decided it wanted to be in the picture.” Taken in Boracay, October 2011, with a Nikon D40.

caintic sand water
Entry #32. Photographer: Ruddi Chris Caintic. Taken on Banana Island in November, 2013 with a Nikon D90.

Tiger Traveller Entry - Sam Guison
