APAYAO – The Haven of Rising Opportunities & Adventure

Now as a independent province and solely represents their own indigenous people, Apayao offers the most diverse, note-worthy sites that the Cordilleras have. Apayao is chosen to be PH First’s next #PH Random Journey!  Look at this place, we will definitely go there:
