The visual artists at Wow Tapes are no strangers to traveling around the world. Their latest film takes them to the Camarines and Biri Islands in the Philippines. These areas of the country were unfamiliar to the team, but they’d already formed an admiration for the Philippines after exploring other provinces years prior.
Fabio Reitano and Guiseppe Lombardi comprise only half of the team at Wow Tapes, and when Travelbook offered to take them here, how were they to say no?
The location of Biri Island, between the San Bernardino Strait and The Pacific Ocean, helps to shape it’s infamous cliffs- providing for a beautiful landscape. The only way to get there is by taking a plane to Catarman (another municipality in Northern Samar), striking your way to the main terminal, riding in the Jeep towards Lavezares, or taking the boat to Biri Town.
Camarines Sur is a province known for its 19th-century churches, active volcanoes, and black and white sand beaches. Since this area is easier to access than Biri Island, the presence of tourists is sometimes greater.
Tourists or not, the team at Wow Tapes has definitely got us adding these two vibrant and beautiful locations to our bucket list!
