The Beauty that is Tigbauan

Tigbauan, my beloved hometown, is a municipality in the province of Iloilo, Philippines. It is located 23 kilometers southwest of Iloilo City.

It acquired its name, like the majority of town centers, after a topographical distinction unique to the region – in this case after the Tigbao, a local name for a type of grass that used to swarm the countryside.

Tigbauan, a coastal town, was one of the landing sites for American Forces led by General Douglas MacArthur in March 1945 for liberation of the Philippines from the Japanese in World War II.

Pinoy Travel Blog Sagada Feature

An entry in Pinoy Travel Blog talks about their own Sagada experience. Pictures are available there as well.

On their way to the “Big Falls”, it appears that they took the same way we did. Though, do you think the experience was the same?

Well, why don’t we just let the pictures decide for themselves??…..:)LOL..
