How to go to Antique?

The province of Antique is located in the Visayas group of islands of the Philippines. From Manila you can book flights to either Kalibo or Ilo-ilo. If you are coming from Kalibo, travel is around 2-3 hours. If you'll choose the latter, travel time is around 1 to 2 hours, which is what I took during this particular trip. 


The trip is made possible by Katahum Tours in Antique. To know more about it, visit their website or email
