The artifacts displayed in this classroom-turned-museum are a combination of donations from nearby communities and Sir Allen Mayodong's personal collection. The Humanities and English professor began gathering items of historical and cultural importance from the Isnag and Ifugao tribes in 2003. Baskets, kitchen tools and equipment, and national costumes are just some of the invaluable items on display. Entrance to the museum is free, but Sir Mayodong must be informed before visiting. Interested parties can contact him through his mobile number +63 906 743 6611.
Ortega's Fruit Farm is the first and biggest fruit producer in Conner. Its owner, Mr. Ireneo Ortega, applied integrated farming methods in his 30-hectare plot which explains the wide array of fruits that thrive in his plantation. Apart from cacao and coconut, there are also mangosteen, durian, and rambutan. He also founded the municipality-wide Pangbunga Festival, which is usually held in October. Together with his family, they sell processed cacao products such as tablea, which are lovingly made by hand.
Purag River is an emerging tourist destination located in Apayao’s fruit capital, the humble town of Conner. Families would often be seen feasting on a sumptuous spread of igat (eel) and wild duck dishes at the rocks by the riverbank. The blue-green lagoon, which can go as deep as 30 feet, conceals a number of caves behind its small cascades, which are often frequented by individuals and couples yearning for alone time.
