Milestone: 100 Sights in Vista Pinas

Mosaic of the thumbnail pictures of the first 100 sights in Vista Pinas.

That previous sight on the Friendship Tower of Bagac just happens to be the 100th sight we’ve featured on Vista Pinas. Wow, it’s been a long virtual ride through the Philippines, hasn’t it? We started this website as Tanawing Pinoy back in February 2006 and the first featured sight was the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite. Then in May of this year, Tanawing Pinoy was re-branded as Vista Pinas becoming part of the Bayanihan Blog Network, the first Filipino blog network.

To celebrate this 100-sight milestone, let’s take a look back at some of the sights that hold records, whether confirmed or speculated. Hehehe.
