( Just last October, Siargao in Surigao del Norte made a comeback as Asia's best island. And we totally get it: It boasts barreling waves for surfing, white-sand beaches, vast expanse of coconut trees, and a laid-back vibe that's like nowhere else in the Philippines. While the island reopened to domestic travelers on September 1, it isn't until today that the provincial government of Surigao del Norte announced that they're now waiving the RT-PCR travel requirement for entry of fully vaccinated individuals.
