Tibiao Snapshots

Never Stop Exploring
To continue where I left off in my previous post about Tibiao, let me share some photos I have taken in this idyllic place. Travelling without expectations can be a good thing because you always stand the chance of having a better time than you expected to. I went to Tibiao with only the Hot Kawa Bath in mind but what I have experienced there was much, much more.

The cliche "Same same but different" has never been more true in Tibiao's case. Sure the environment feels like Sagada, sure there are also white water rafting in Davao and Cagayan De Oro, sure there are hanging bridges in Adams, sure multi-layered waterfalls are plenty in other places too, sure it all sounds too familiar that one may quip it is all the same, but inspite of their similarities, still, it is very much different. And if you can sum-up all those beautiful attractions in one place and add up the novelty that is Kawa Hot Bath, then, Tibiao is definitely a worthy place to visit.
