The Kawa Bath

kawa hot bath

Here’s a hot tub I’d love to get into. The water in these supersized cast iron pans is heated and kept hot by a live fire. How relaxing it would be on cool nights, under a sky full of stars; the near perfect way to get ready for bed after a long day hiking or kayaking or just a chilly swim. I wonder if the person who came up with this had read Robinson Crusoe!

These giant vats were originally used to in the sugar making process. The sugar mills have long been abandoned, but the experience is  still sweet.

If I ever happen to be in Philippines, I going to set aside a day for Tabio just for  this.

Bonus- spend the night At night, at one of Kayak Inn’s nipa huts. There’s no electricity – only the wind in the willows ( ok trees), and the song of the river. 

 Kayak Inn is located in Brgy. Tuno, Tibiao, Antique and can be reached using  a habal-habal (or single motorcycle),

Best time to go is from September to February, where the river is usually high, perfect for kayaking. This is also firefly season. Stars in the sky, and all around you. Enjoy the show!
