If you are flying Seair/Tigerairways this month of April and July 2013, get a Palawan overload in the latest Seair InFlight Magazine. Amongst the many Palawan features in the issue, is my story and photos on “El Nido Retreats”, it covers some of the top resorts in El Nido like Pangulasian Island, Lagen Island, Dolarog Beach Resort, Cadlao Island Resort and EL Nido Overlooking. So check out the front pockets of your seats when you fly Seair/Tigerairways this month and next.
The Ati-Atihan festival is celebrated widely in various parts of the Philippines every 2nd and 3rd of January. This celebration to honor Sto Niño (baby Jesus) is more popular in Kalibo Aklan. But there are lesser known places that do practice the Ati-atihan like Barotuan in El Nido Palawan, home from migrants coming from Aklan. I wrote about the Barotuan Ati-Atihan Festival at En Route extensively. Here, I’m just sharing out takes from the post, particularly some of my favorite Ati-atihan portraits from that day.
