Misibis Bay
on Oct 14, 2011Tucked away on the southeastern tip of Cagraray Island in Bacacay, Albay is the luxurious resort of Misibis Bay (official website). I have been vaguely aware of this resort for quite a while now but it is only recently that I read up on it. Of course...

A José Rizal @150 Tribute
on Jun 19, 2011As a belated tribute to the 150th birthday of our National Hero, José Rizal, let’s look back at the five Rizal-related sites that I have featured here in Vista Pinas throughout the years. Surprisingly, all but one are found overseas. Then agai...

Pamilacan Island
on Mar 20, 2011Just like Balicasag Island, Pamilacan Island is another island of Bohol that is located quite some distance from the mainland. If Balicasag is famous for its scuba diving and coral reefs, Pamilacan is famous for its dolphin and whale watching, though...

Mak-Ban Geothermal Power Plant
on Feb 26, 2011I’ve already featured one geothermal power plant before and that is the one at Tiwi, Albay. Well, if you want to visit a geothermal power plant and you find Albay too far, the nearest one to Metro Manila is the Mak-Ban Geothermal Power Plant lo...

EDSA Shrine
on Feb 24, 2011Today is a milestone for the Philippines as the country celebrates the silver anniversary of the 1986 People Power Revolution. Twenty five years ago, Filipinos took to the streets and staged a peaceful protest on EDSA to support the defectors of the...

White Rock Beach Hotel
on Oct 18, 2010Well, here’s a resort in Subic Bay that seems to be trying to be everything: White Rock Beach Hotel. It’s basically a beach resort with all the usual amenities for leisure and team-building (like an open field and a wellness center) and f...

UP Fair
on Oct 9, 2010While I prefer blogging about mostly permanent structures here in Vista Pinas, I have, on rare occasions, featured ephemeral stuff especially if they’re interesting and lucky to have been caught on satellite camera and then subsequently selecte...
