Higher Views of Batanes


The Batanes province of the Philippines is the northernmost in this giant Southeast Asian archipelago.  The province consists of a group of islands roughly between the northern "mainland" of Luzon and the island nation of Taiwan to the north.  Seen here in this DVOM Finalist drone video by jj_maghirang, the Batanes were populated by a distinctive ethnic group which migrated here over 4,000 years ago, and didn't come under control of the Spanish until the late 18th century - much later than the rest of the Philippines.
