Sambawan Island Travel Guide 2016
Six hours on boat, two hours on van, thirty minutes on tricycle and finally - we arrived in Kawayan (with our growling empty stomachs). We were then approached by one of the boat drivers, Kuya Oca. He initially quoted us Php3k but we were able to haggle it down to Php2.5k since we were only 4 in our group. Luckily, Kuya Oca invited us to eat breakfast in his brother's house nearby because it was their Fiesta. We said yes right away without any reservations! Maybe it was already our hungry stomachs talking shamelessly haha. We spent probably an hour eating, petting their pigs, talking with the locals and just silently thinking about how thick your skin can get for survival.
