Tada! Let the Philippines Surprise You: Philippine Travel Stories

There are times when we encounter or discover something spectacular and we get this inescapable urge to express that strong emotion to another soul, complete with presentation — a hand that emphasizes that something and, for additional emphasis, blurt out something like, TADA!!!!!! Here’s what we found in the Philippine-themed, VisitPinas-tagged Instagram photos.

Tada! Sunrise at Mt. Pulag

We have a lot of posts on Mt. Pulag but, as noted in a previous post (“Soul-Searching at Mt. Pulag: Photo of the Day“), we can’t promise that we won’t add some more. Mt. Pulag is just gorgeous, absolutely beautiful. With an altitude of 2,922 metres (9,587 feet) at its peak, Mt. Pulag is the third highest mountain in the Philippines. That means you get to see the sunrise, the best time to hit the summit, above the clouds.

Here’s a photo by Mark Allen Fastidio (check his account, @markallenfastidio, for more photos). “On top of the world, this fire colours of the great sunrise of mount pulag is spectacular,” Mark says. We initially thought to include this in the previous post (“Pretty in Orange“) but when we saw the other photo, as you see below, we decided to spin it off into something different. Tada!!

Tada! Isla de Gigantes

“Ladies and gentlemen, tada!!! a Philippine island!” That’s what came to mind the first time we saw this photo. We later learned this is Isla de Gigantes in the town of Carles, Iloilo. Photo courtesy of Cliff Stephen Pike (check his Instagram account, @clifftoncloud, for more photos), with a caption we feel should be shared: “As you reach your goals, set new ones, that is how you grow.”

Tada! Welcome to Cloud 9!

This is the view deck at Cloud 9, Siargao Island, the surfing capital of the Philippines. No need for words, better to experience it. Go visit Siargao. Photo courtesy of Sabino (check his Instagram account, @sabino.gallo, for more photos).

We’re going to update this post, so tag us with your TADA! Philippine photos and stories.
