Breathtaking Batanes: The Island of Sabtang

It is a place so untouched, you feel like you've been taken a few years back in time when life was so simple;  A time when the village people got their food straight out of the fish nets and used wood for cooking;  A time when the virtue of honesty was at its strongest and served as the fundamental guide for everyday living.

I almost regret not scheduling an overnight stay on Sabtang Island.  Nevertheless, our one-day experience on this island of roughly 1,465 people* is one of the most unique we've had.

And it started right away when we boarded the faluwa--a kind of boat they use to transport people and goods from one island to the other--at the Radiwan Port in Ivana.
