Aurora Province is located on the East-Central side of Luzon Island in the Philippines. Many of its municipalities were once part of Quezon Province. Aurora became an official province in 1979. This is why when I told some friends I went to Aurora, they said, “Oh you went to Quezon.” I had to correct them.

I’ve only been there once but there is so much to see and experience there that I want to go there again. I was only there for a few days with a group of friends. If you like the outdoors you will enjoy exploring Aurora. Natural attractions abound. Because the Philippines is made up of more than 7,000 islands, everywhere you go you can be sure there are beaches nearby. In Baler, a municipality of Aurora, the waves are good for surfing. Aside from the beaches, there are cave pools, reefs, islets, hills, mountains and waterfalls. There is also a big banyan tree, said to be more than 600 years old, with a gigantic trunk. Its thick roots growing above the ground have formed into cave-like structures. It is one of the popular tourist attractions in Aurora. There is so much to shoot. Your lomographic cameras will get all excited and you will go home and see the pictures and remember the beauty of Aurora.

To get to Aurora from Manila, you can drive, or take a bus or fly SeaAir. Driving is difficult because it is very far and you have to go through some mountain roads that are rough, narrow, and zigzagging. In rainy season this could become more difficult because of possible landslides. It is good to take a bus so you can enjoy the sights along the way. It will take about 8 or 9 hours. If you decide to fly, a SeaAir flight to Aurora from Manila takes only about 45 minutes, and then you have to travel by land from the airfield to Baler for about 20 minutes.
