Velvet moments: travel photo – Panglao Island

The Velvet Moments travel photo series is a collection of photographic moments that define a Velvet Escape travel experience. Launched in January 2010, the series houses many of my favourite photos taken around the world. I decided to take this series a step further by inviting some of my favourite travel bloggers to contribute a photo “that has Velvet Escape written all over it!”. 

Here’s a contribution from Nellie Huang, a.k.a. Wild Junket.

Panglao Island in the Philippines is a palette of colors: different shades of blue are on full display. We are currently on this beautiful island, exploring its pristine beaches, lush green rainforest and rolling chocolate hills. This shot is taken at the Panglao Island Nature Resort, where the view is magnificent and the atmosphere hypnotic. By day, we head out to track wild tarsiers and visit the island’s countrysides, and as the sun sets, we are sipping sundowners by the resort’s infinity pool. Life cannot get any better. – Nellie Huang

    Hi, I’ve been here last year Oct. 2011 and had a great time in this paradise. Make sure not to miss going to Balicasag Island. You’ll find plenty of colorful fishes there even in shallow waters.
