Batan Marine Park

In the final episode of the Batanes Islands series, DJ and Don stop looking at the electric blue waters and dive in instead, to explore what’s below the surface. They start with a snorkel around the Marine Park before DJ gets scubaed up and takes a deep dive.

Itbayat Island

In the fourth episode of the Batanes Islands series, DJ and Don board a boat and head off across rough seas to Itbayat. There they discover a relatively untouched island with stunning rock formations and cliffs.

Mount Iraya and Basco

In the second episode of the Batanes Islands series, DJ and Don split-up to explore. DJ heads 1,000 meters up to the summit of Most Iraya on a five-hour trek, while Don takes on the more arduous task of seeing what fine dining Basco has to offer.

Sabtang Island

In the second of the Batanes Islands series, DJ and Don put on their life jackets and sail over to Sabtang island. During their short trip they manage a short hike, a look around a stone village and a lunch at the iconic arch at Morong beach.

Batan Island

In the first of a new series on the islands of Batanes, DJ travels to Batan Island to take on a 500-meter tall volcano before getting lost looking for a lighthouse. Don Lejano from inquirer.net, our Asia News Network partners, joins him for the adventure.

Tung O Ancient Trail

On this next recommended walk, we’re following an ancient trail along the North Lantau Island coastline. Starting in the water village of Tai O, the 15 km walk takes you through old fishing villages as it winds it’s way past the new airport to Tung Chung Fort.

East Lantau Island

In the first of a new Drone and Phone season of recommended walks, DJ and Jack take on East Lantau Island. Starting in Mui Wo, they took a trail up through Tung Wan Tau before a much gentler decent to the Our Lady of Joy Abbey. From there a path takes them down to the coast before walking into Discovery Bay. From there they headed back up to the ridge that runs above and down to Sunny Bay to complete a relatively easy 14 km hike. Many thanks to Doug Treasure for the recommendation.
