The Travel Treatment: Why The Broken-Hearted Go To Batanes 

Heartbreak comes in many forms: a failed romance; family problems; unhappiness over a career; or the loneliness that comes with isolation and separation from the things and people you love.

Heartbreak happens even to the best of us.  It's part of being human - natural and common. Thankfully, there’s always a way to make the best out of a bad situation.

Maybe it's time for a little soul searching. In Batanes.

Batanes is one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines. Situated at the northernmost part of the country, the province blends natural beauty with peaceful, secluded surroundings; and some of the friendliest people you will meet. Perfect for healing a broken heart.
