On this week’s travel episode, Balitang America and Mango Tours take you to the province of Batangas – a destination where you can witness and explore a collection of cultural and historical splendors, nature destinations, and heritage wonders.
Among its many gems include an array of exceptional beach and diving destinations found in Nasugbu, Anilao, and San Juan, just to name a few. In addition, Batangas is famed for its heritage sites found mostly in one of its towns known as Taal, where travelers can rediscover the history behind various ancestral houses and structures dating back to the 19th century.
Batangas is also a home to various pilgrimage sites. Two of these sites include the miraculous Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Lipa City and the biggest and one of the oldest churches in Asia, the Basilica de San Martin de Tours in Taal.
Tourists who are into souvenir shopping should not miss the chance to buy two of Batangas famous keepsakes, the balisong, also known as butterfly knife, and kapeng barako, a type of coffee grown in the grounds of Batangas.
