Culion Island, Island Of Living Death Sep 08, 2008
Long time ago Culion Island was known as the ISLAND OF LIVING DEATH since this island is one of the oldest leper colonies in the world. People were still afraid to visit this place which is ironic because this island is a beautiful island.

When I was there, I visited Culion Fort and Church. The church is well constructed and has beautiful interior inside. The fort has old canons and offers remarkable ocean view.

Take a walk is recommended to go around the city. Another place I visited is Culion Sanitarium and Museum. It was sad to visit this place because we got to see the general idea of the “colony” from pictures, news clippings, coins and human rattan to transport the patients. It was just so sad.

For those of you who loves historical stuffs, this place is worth visiting.
