Explore, explore, explore and live life! I enjoyed reading Explore Philippine’s feature on Siargao featuring Rhian Ramos. The pictures (by Jake Verzosa) and article ( by EIC France Pinzon) were beautifully composed. In the article, Rhian expressed her surprise when she saw how raw and untainted Siargao was—and it definitely translates to every image taken. 

Recently, I got to attend the launch party of Explore Philippines, a quarterly in-flight as well as retail magazine. What makes Explore  Philippines unique from the other travel magazines is that its focus is travelling within the Philippines. Not only that. True to its name, the people behind the magazine make it a point to discover as much as they can. They go beyond the usual tourist spots and really, well, explore. This is not only good for the avid adventurer, but also for the locals who can earn from the tourism in their area.The well-attended launch was held at the events place of Century Mall, Makati, and was graced by two of their cover girls, Rhian Ramos and Janine Gutierrez.

During the event, December cover girl, Rhian Ramos was called up onstage and interviewed about her experience in Siargao, Surigao del Norte  (known as the surfing capital of the Philippines) and the actress was all praises.

I enjoyed reading the magazine’s  Siargao X Rhian Ramos spread. The pictures (by Jake Verzosa) and article ( by EIC France Pinzon) were beautifully composed. In the article, Rhian expressed her surprise when she saw how raw and untainted Siargao was—and it definitely translates to every image taken.

I’m excited to follow Explore Philippine’s adventures for 2017. I’m sure the team behind the magazine has a lot of ideas up  their sleeve.
