If you’ve never heard of Infanta before, it’s only because this quiet town on the western side of Pangasinan has managed to stay off the mainstream tourist trail – which is not entirely a bad thing. This only means that everything it has to offer still feels untouched and special. Ultimately, Infanta is a town for curious minds: for foodies, the bagoong (fermented fish sauce) and salt factories reveal a fascinating process behind these seemingly mundane condiments. Meanwhile, those who are interested in biodiversity and ecology can have front row seats to the spectacle of nature, with Infanta’s virgin islands, mangrove-shaded riverside, and bird-filled wetlands. Indeed, Infanta may be quiet and creature comforts may be scarce, but it’s definitely worth a visit, especially if you’re up for learning a few new things.
