After two years of living and working in Manila, my sister finally decided to visit me and was keen to check out the outskirts of the city for a change. We packed our bikinis and a couple of summer outfits and left the city for the long weekend.
The choice of destination, Hundred Islands in Pangasinan. The Hundred Islands, which consists of 123 islands during high-tide (124 during low-tide) is one of the wonders of the Philippines and is believed to be over 2 million years old.
Aside from island hopping, Pangasinan is a great tourist destination where you can do a range of activities such as kayaking, spelunking, scuba diving, camping, snorkeling, hiking, parasailing and many more. It is a place with a rich history, great food, and warm people. The 123 islands are more than a hundred reasons to visit this place. It’s a must-visit place for locals and expats as it has a different charm of its own.
