If you check the map, you can identify that Batanes is in the Cagayan Valley Province. To tell you this, you can check that Batanes is the northernmost region in the country. However, it is the smallest region in terms of land area and population. To explore further, you will know that the capital of Batanes is Basco on the island of Batan.

As a tourist, you can check and see some unique natural sights of Batanes, including Vayang Rolling Hills and Valugan Boulder Beach, feel the whole-hearted welcome of the Ivatans through their sympathy and decency as you stopover in the Basco Town Proper, and expand and increase your cultural experiences with a free and an uncompelled random samples of Ivatan dishes to dine for lunch. This place, as mentioned by several bloggers and vloggers, tours you around the northernmost province in one of the most exclusive tourism frontiers, gifted with its distinctive amalgam of spectacular background, natural splendor, and well-preserved culture.
