The Philippines is a tropical country, known to the rest of the world as a place full of beautiful beaches. It offers plenty of options, may it be a short travel outside of Metro Manila or a posh island that racks up the attention of Hollywood stars (Amanpulo, anyone?).
Anyone you ask would recommend a great beach to go, either a touristy one or a beach less travelled to. Beaches get all the stars, yet most Filipinos forget that the Philippines is an archipelago, which means water is everywhere.
The Philippine beaches have long been given the spotlight, but now is the time to show the ri ...
Bringing there our backpacks and hearts ready for another adventure, the members of the UP ROAD TRIP went to an eco-tourism park in Pangil (also spelled as Panguil), Laguna last August 29, 2015. This eco-park features the infamous Ambon-Ambon Falls, and includes activities such as Trekking, River Tubing, and Crablet Catching.
The town was founded by Fr. Juan de Plasencia and Fr. Diego de Oropesa in 1579. The name Pangil was believed to have originated from three coincidental instances:
1. It came from the dialectical word "Pangil" which literally means the fang of a wild boar.
2. It was n ...

When thinking of waterfalls to visit on a day tour from Manila, the province of Laguna will surely make the cut. This without a doubt since there are lots of waterfalls in the province that are all within reach from the Metropolis. Pagsanjan Falls in Cavinti will always come to mind since it is one of the tourist spots that were developed and marketed for tourists ahead of the others. It was highlighted to us in our formative years in school as I remember. There is also the Taytay Falls of Majayjay, another famous one which may be smaller in size but beautiful and mesmerizing just the same.
The province of Laguna is blessed with having so many lakes and falls. And Pangil is one of the blessed municipalities having the famous Ambon-Ambon falls.

We just can't get enough of nature! After a very successful and gratifying trip to Mt. Ping-as, we decided to go to Ambon-Ambon Falls.
Ambon-Ambon Falls is part of the attraction of the Panguil River Eco Park. Before they coined the place such, it was locally known as "Piit". I remember going to this place before. This was where we held family reunions and get-togethers. There was no hanging bridge then, and the only way to go to the other side was to cross the raging waters of the river. The water was much clearer then. There were lots of fish and crablets. There were not much cottages. Th ...
