    Barangay

    Romblon is composed of several barangays, and one of them is called Lupa. Going up there, there's a lot of good views, esp part of the coastline of the island. You will pass one of the two cemeteries in the island (which is worth going up to bec there is a good view, if you don't mind cemeteries, just don't go in the late PM bec the mosquitos will devour you, hehe), and you will also pass the hospital of the island. I go to this barangay bec there's a good vantage point or a good view of the rest of the island of Romblon. For directions, every tricycle driver knows each barangay, so you will not have any problem.

    Marble factory

    If you ever get to Romblon, Romblon try to visit a marble factory. These is where they cut marble blocks to smaller pieces. From the town, hop into a tricycle to a barangay called Cajimos where they have several marble plants (factories). It's probably about 15 minutes away, and the ride to the barangay is a trip in itself where you pass a cemetery if you have time go to this cemetery because you can get a good vantage point of Romblon), a hospital, and the pier. When you get to one of the plant, talk to the foreman first if you can watch what there doing. They might even give you a tour of their plant. It can get noisy though.
