Travel PH | Jose Panganiban with the Miss Tourism Candidates

Travelling with the Miss Tourism Philippines has this a perk.  You get to travel and see more of the Philippines a little better.  This time around we get to see a quiet town called Jose Panganiban,  in Camarines Norte.

After travelling six hours by bus, we were warmly greeted by these kids in traditional costumes dancing in the streets.  Wow what a great welcome provided by the local government of Jose Panganiban.  As you can see in the pictures, the town was quiet at first glance, but later we found out it was very much alive and kicking.

There were a lot of places to visit but due to limited time, we only had a glimpse of the whole town, met the mayor, saw two pristine beaches (one beige and one pink), hiked a small hill and experienced the warm hospitality of the people of Jose Panganiban.

This is just a teaser folks as we are invited again to visit them and the whole of camarines norte in the next few weeks.  We will surely bring back more pictures and adventures of the place.

For this trip we would like to thank the local government of Jose Panganiban and the provincial government of Camarines Norte as well for the warm hospitality.
