Part of the Ring of Fire, Kanlaon is one of the most active volcano in the Philippines. With an altitude of almost 2.5k meters (just under 8.1k ft.), it's the highest peak on Negros and indeed in the entire Vasayan Islands region.  From the waterfalls at the base, to the Margaja Valley caldera and rocky Lugud crater, the Canlaon volcano brings new meaning to the saying, "beautiful but deadly."  Contributor NAVA flew over the top of this marvel, creating one of the most-viewed drone videos on AirVuz.

With over 7,000 islands in the Philippines, it's probably not surprising that some of them are quite small - small enough to be a private resort.  Here is one of them.  It's called Lakawon Island, which is situated off the western coast of the island of Negros in the central Philippines.  It's only 32 acres, but as you'll see from this drone video by dROneY that's plenty of island when it's all one resort.  The white sand beaches here compare favorably to the best that legendary spots like Boracay have to offer.
