Travel: Beautiful Batanes Trip Day 2 (Part 3 of 3)


Alas! The last installment of my Batanes Day 2 saga.


I have asked Jun, my tour-guide-for-the-day to extend my tour to the south of Batan Island. By and large, I wanted to capture the picturesque Marlboro Country on cam.

Bunker Restaurant is perfect for those romantic dates. It used to be an abandoned American bunker. It now serves delish food from 5 PM onwards, on top of a windy hill, right beside an old lighthouse.
