Digital photo narrative of our visit to pretty Laua-an, Antique Province, Philippines including information on natural and heritage sites, beaches, hiking, festivals, accommodations and dining.
After Bugasong, at KM 152, came Laua-an, Antique. While Laua-an did not seem to have any specific landmarks, it was very impressive for the obvious pride that the residents and their government took in their town. Everything was neat, clean and well-maintained. The immaculate central school was a very visible symbol of the importance that parents, teachers and students place on educating the children of Laua-an.
With only a few exceptions, we found that the communities of Antique Province, which certainly must not be wealthy, were proud of their home towns and kept them them painted, landscaped, neat, clean and free of litter.
