The municipality of Bongao is the capital town of the province of Tawi-tawi. It is where the provincial capitol is located and the center of social, economic and political authority.
The municipality of Bongao includes the ten-square kilometer island of the same name, the neighboring island of Sanga-sanga where the airport is located, and the southern portion of the mainland Tawi-tawi.
The islands of Bongao and Sanga-Sanga is connected by a body of water called the Bongao/Sanga-Sanga Channel which connects Aguada Bay and Sibutu Channel.
The sunrise at Bongao/Sanga-Sanga channel was very picturesque and breathtaking. When we were on our way to the airport, we were greeted by a mesmerizing sunrise at the channel. Of course, we requested the tricycle driver to make a quick stop. We couldn’t let the sunrise pass without taking good photos of it. It was definitely awesome!
