Bokong Falls is located in Sagada, Mountain Province. It is one of Sagada's known cascades within a cultivated area bordered with rice terraces, stands of pine trees and it has a small waterfall with two surges of water. What it lacks in height, which drops to just around 20 feet, it makes up for its deep natural pool good for swimming.

Ever since this popular movie came out in the cinema (That Thing Called Tadhana), people started to embark on a sudden road trip to Sagada. I, myself, also wanted to witness this hidden gem of the north that's why last May 2016 we've had our vacation there. For this trip, we availed a tour package from Travel Galore Tours and Services for just P2999.00 only (good for 2 pax)! It comes with accommodation & complete tours already.

In this time of my well deserved R&R, I decided to travel to Manila with an original itinerary of having a Manila-Vigan-Banaue-Sagada-Baguio-Manila trip. A friend however encouraged me to drop Vigan since this Ilocandia trip deserves a whole 3-day trip (at least) on its own. I took advantage of a seat sale of Cebu Pacific from Davao on my way to Manila and my Get Go points. The trip cost me more than 7K points which I exchanged to my Manila-Davao trip.
Upon arrival in Manila, we started our trip to Banaue by riding a Ohayami bus in Espana, Manila. The trip lasted for 10 hours (more or less) ...

Now that the leak from our rusting tin roof has dried and my taste buds are still savoring the flavor of the two best mangoes ever grown, things feel distinctly relaxed. But the Philippines has not always been so easy.
I'll reserve judgement on Manila as we will be going back there at the end of our trip with Mike competing in the run rio half marathon.
