In his latest vlog, Erwan Heussaff explores the rich culture and biodiversity of Tawi-Tawi in Mindanao. Amidst the stigma and travel warnings associated with the province, Erwan says, “From all the people I talked to, from the military to non-government organizations, I found out that Tawi-Tawi is a place of peace, where people are working hard to change their image and showcase their culture.”
“Part of the coral triangle, Tawi-Tawi is one of the global centers of biodiversity,” Erwan says. He shows the province’s beautiful beaches, thriving marine life, and delicious seafood. Aside from engaging in water activities, he explores the bustling city of Bongao and visits the oldest mosque in the Philippines, Sheik Karimol Makhdum Mosque in the municipality of Simunul.
