38th: Island Province of Biliran

I mentioned in my previous post that we were supposed to visit Kalanggaman Island. Of course, I always have a Plan B when traveling so we went to the Southern part of Leyte and explored the island province of Biliran. Before, I thought it was part of Leyte but when I talked to a local, I knew that it was already declared as an island province. Never did I know that it will mark as my 38th province in the Philippines.

For some, this place might not ring a bell. So as a way of getting to know more about this not so known paradise, below are some of the must do when in Biliran.

1. Trek different waterfalls. Biliran has a lot of waterfalls waiting to be discovered in its mountainous area. My friends and I visited three waterfalls.


ULAN-ULAN FALLS - I have to say this is the most beautiful for me out of the three.


2. Stop by to appreciate Biliran's Iyusan Rice Terraces.

3. Side trip to Acaban Cave.

4. Morning walk along the serene Talahid Beach.

5. Discover Biliran's islands via island hopping. We were pressed with time so we were only able to visit three islands. Nevertheless, the adventure was still fun!
