Boat ride to volcano island
Boat ride to volcano island by shankar s.
We are now well and truly on the banca sailing towards the Volcano Island, which can be seen in the distance, with the Binintiang Malaki dormant crater at the extreme right. The Taal Lake we are on now is supposedly abundant in fish, and I saw birds in the Philippines for the first time on my seven day tour around the country, skimming the lake! An elderly guide later assured me that the birds are everywhere, it’s just that they do not appear in the midday sun. Hmmm. At Php 1500 per boat, the ride is not exactly cheap, but the low slung boats are very pleasant to ride on. (Manila- Tagaytay, Philippines, May 2013)
