We biked around the Marlboro Hills and it is really majestic. The place is just so awesome. This is a bit far from basco, and would need endurance.

You can go here to have lunch (just set it up in advance with your guide or find someone in Basco City who can if you don't have a guide), and while lunch is being set up, go, explore, and have fun just being...

Rakuh or fondly known as "Marlboro Country" is known for its amazing rolling hills and views. But what struck me the most is what our tour guide shared with us about these hills: The government allows free use of the land for anyone who wants to take care of cows and carabaos.

What a great day taking a tour of the South of Basco and one of the attractions is Marlboro Hills. It's practical to hire a van on your own and travel on your own pace. Charge your cameras cuz this site is breathtaking.

Although a bit far from Basco, the long trip was well worth it. Being in Marlboro Hills make you feel like you are in the edge of the Philippines a perfect combination of ocean and hill views. Truly one of the most beautiful sites in the Philippines.
