Bataan is a simple and peaceful place. A few hours from the hustle bustle of the city life in Manila, the province boasts of the slow passing of time that invites weary visitors seeking solace from the weariness of a frantic pace of travel.
Bataan Province in the Philippines offers scenic spots that will surely provide relaxation to all its guests. And, some of these spots are not known to many individuals – simple destinations that offer visitors a glance into the way of life of the Bataan folks. One of these is the Tanato Spring, located just minutes at the outskirts of Balanga city.
Not really a popular tourist attraction, this is a simple spring or river in which one can rest for a shade or for a freshening up. There are times when the water is shallow, though, so swimming is not always possible. But, you can have fun on the water as the water is accessible and one can walk around easily. There are small and huge rocks on the river bed, and you can explore from end to end.
There are also concrete tables and chairs erected in the vicinity of the spring, so you can take some rest, bring food and eat, or simply relax and enjoy the place. If you’re there when the sun’s already up, there are also trees near the water, so you can get some shade from the sun.
The water is very clear, and some residents nearby even wash their clothes in the river. The place is also great for picture taking – the scenery is wonderful and the green surroundings are refreshing to the eyes. After your visit to this place, you’ll surely be energized, ready to take on further travels again.
