BALER | Beauty in the East

Baler-Beauty in the East1Posting about my second summer trip (see first herefor this year – BALER! It’s situated in the heart of Aurora province and actually a tricky sight. And when I mean tricky, Sabang beach is quite invisible to the eyes reaching the town as it’s hiding behind the lush mountains. After 5 to 6-hr drive, we reached our first stop – Old Balete Tree in Maria Aurora.Baler-Beauty in the East2There’s nothing much to do there except for photo op with 600 year-old Balete tree standing tall and proud. Thanks to this dear tree for casting a big shade and keeping us cool amidst the hot weather. This is not a free attraction and you have to settle an entrance fee (P10 for adult & I’m not sure for kids).Baler-Beauty in the East3Baler-Beauty in the East6After a short stay, we visited Museo de Baler then headed straight to June’s Homestay which is located at the beachfront! Perfect! It’s such a magical view from our guesthouse. Fhabs and I resisted the urge to dip right into the water because the heat is really crazy.
