hi guys! i'm planning to go to batanes this january for a vacation (and a picture-taking spree ). i've searched the net and found some useful info. but most of the info that i found seem like they were lifted from some guidebook. in other words, they're either vague, outdated, or totally bogus. i need suggestions from people who've actually been to batanes. cheapest way to get there, easiest way to explore the islands, what to expect, etc. actually, any practical info will be highly appreciated. thanks guys!
