Someone once said “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” Bantayan Island is an island in the Philippines where life is simple. The people of the island are without a doubt the happiest people I have ever met. Their warmth and friendliness made it a joy to spend time there.

When someone genuinely smiles at you, it’s the greatest feeling in the world. Everyone smiles on Bantayan Island. They smile so much their faces must hurt.

If the world seems cold to you, take a trip to Bantayan Island.
