The municipality of Sitangkai located in the province of Tawi-tawi is the southernmost town in the country. It is also called the “Venice of the South” due to its large canals where boats navigate as the main mode of transportation by villagers.
This “street” where children are shown playing in the water is actually one of the canals where seawater flows inland during high tide.
Here’s the map from Google Earth. Basically, most of the town sits on water. You can observe the main canal at the center.
