Here I am again sharing with you one of my travel to a local tourist spot located in my beloved province of Nueva Ecija, Philippines.
When I was in high school and college I thought that there are no beautiful tourist spots in my province of Nueva Ecija. But it has changed last year when I visited Dupinga River and El Pobre Tanawan
After I visited Dupinga River and El Pobre Tanawan I realized that Nueva Ecija has many tourists destinations, especially rivers and mountain peaks where you can see an entire city.
Today, I am going to show you some photos of my visit to one of the most popular mountain peaks in the province of Nueva Ecija.
The place is called "Sunset Peak". It is so named because when you are at the location you can have a beautiful glimpse of the sunset.
Arriving at sunset peak my attention was immediately caught by a colorful light decoration above a building (which is actually attached to a tree beside the building). The light decoration is heart-shaped. You can have a closer look at the decoration when you go to the deck of the building which can be rented if you want to have a drink on the rooftop.

Below is another view of the building that I photographed while my elder sister is walking towards the building. As you can see in the photo below there are some umbrella shape hut with a table and chairs underneath them (which is a great place to enjoy the skyline of the city of Cabanatuan.

Like in El Pobre Tanawan, you can have a full view of the skyline of the City of Cabanatuan which becomes more beautiful at night.
If you want to see the sunset make sure to get to Sunset Peak before 5:30 in the afternoon. And then at night, you can see the city lights of the city of Cabanatuan.
If you want to have a drink in these huts you are into a great experience since it has a smooth chilly wind passing through and together with the Cabanatuan City skyline in the background it is really a great place to have a drink with your friends.

Photography Sites: Miniature Eiffel Tower
Did you see the bright white portion of the second and third photos? Here it is, a miniature replica of one of the most famous architectural structures in the world, the Eiffel Tower, it may be small but it did have some tourist attractiveness especially at night when its bright lights are turned on.

My son too, has his photo taken in front of the miniature Eiffel Tower
And of course, my wife too doesn't want to be left behind by having her photo taken beside the miniature replica of the Eiffel Tower
Walking around Sunset Peak I saw this chair and a bicycle, a good photography site in the daytime.
I returned near the miniature replica of the Eiffel Tower and my wife said to me that I should take a photo of her with our son so I obliged and then she asked me to have our family photo together.
After our family photo near the miniature replica of the Eiffel Tower, we took a walk on the left side of Sunset Peak and I saw this huge "I Heart Tanawan" signage. We took some photos too.

Then we walked past the "I Heart Tanawan" signage until we saw a chair with a crescent-like shape, it is a good site to take photos so I and my wife take turns in taking our photos.

After our photo ops at the crescent-shaped chair, we then took a walk downhill, and then I see a "SUNSET PEAK" signage in red lights and further below us some local tourists are enjoying the night skyline of the city of Cabanatuan.
Then we walked back on top, and to our surprise, there are these huge heart-shaped light decorations just near the heart-shaped light decoration on a tree that I mentioned earlier.
This location is also a great place for taking some photos as a remembrance if ever you are going to visit Sunset Peak

Then we noticed a nearby hanging hammock, if you asked hammock is one of the best to take photos with, with that said we took turns in taking our photos on the hammock.

And then right below us, there are these nipa huts which are also a great place to have a drink, especially at night because nipa huts are known to have a colder environment at night, combined with a soft breeze you'll have an ice-cool wind breeze inside the nipa hut.

And that's how our visit to Sunset Peak went.
If you want to visit the place I recommend that you go there at 5:30 in the afternoon and then wait for the sunset and then enjoy the views the place has to offer at night.
