Historically, Panay Island has been a producer of tons of sugar as its vast lands are suitable for sugarcane planting. Some of them make muscovado or the organic brown sugar using a very large vat.
After going to Bugtong Bato Falls, I stopped by at the Tibiao Kawa Hot Bath to have a unique therapeutic experience. More than the relaxation, it was the thought of being in a large vat, with fire underneath, the water getting warm by the minute. That was fun and ironically, a cool experience. It may conjure a cannibalistic ritual but this hot bath experience has been drawing tourists in this part of Panay Island. Try it! It’s so cool.
