Island Hopping: Talicud Island

Image
It was a holiday and my officemates decided to organize an island hopping. I was invited and the contribution is only 500 pesos per person which I think very cheap already for an island hopping. I immediately informed my husband and he agreed with it. Our contribution already includes the food and the boat rental fee.          For a boat rental fee of P6,500, it includes three stopovers and the whole tour is up to 4PM. It is a boat with a capacity of forty people and has a comfort room and tables inside the boat. The life vest rental fee is 100 and the snorkeling gadget is 350 pesos.         We sailed out from Sta. Ana Wharf at around nine in the morning. After forty minutes we had been able to reach our first stopover which is at the Coral Garden of Talicud Island. At first I was hesitant to jump out in the water because I am not a swimmer and I rely entirely on my life vest. After a couple of minutes, I was at eased swimming and enjoyed the view of the beautiful corals under the…

Apartment for Travellers

Hotel, motel, lodging house, room for rent, and cottages are the places where travelers commonly stay. Hotel accommodation would provide the necessities you need but it is a bit expensive especially in those high class hotels. In some countries, there are now furnished apartments for travelers like vacation rentals paris. Renting a furnished apartment is cheaper compared to hotel rooms and it could provide you the necessities you needed. It has a kitchen, great amenities and larger than hotel rooms. It would also give the ambience of not being away from home. If I could find a furnished apartment like in vacation rentals paris which is cheaper, I would go for it.

Travel Health Insurance

Our two clients from London just went home from their one week visit here in the Philippines. In their one week stay, I observed they are sneezing or sometimes coughing. Maybe their body is still adjusting to the different temperature of this country which is a bit hot compared to them that is cold. If you are new to the place and to its climate, our body would really adjust to it and sometimes we usually get sick because the food, the temperature, the weather and many other things is new to us. That is why there is travel health insurance that is being offered now. It will cover up any medical expenses we incur while we are away from our own country. It is good for those who are always travelling abroad, for international students and study abroad students. It is better to have this one than let go of your allowances just to pay medical expenses.

Cannibad: The Secret Paradise in Samal

Image
Cannibad is so far the cleanest and the most solemn beach I had ever been. True to its tag line "Cannibad: the Secret Paradise", it is really a paradise for me. Cannibad is one of the beautiful beaches of Island Garden City of Samal (IGACOS) specifically located at Brgy. Penaplata. From Davao City, you must sail on a barge if you have a private car or on a ferry boat at Sasa Wharf. Barge fee may range from P60 pesos, for motorcycle, to 500 pesos depending on the type of vehicle that will be shipped. Ferry Boat is also a good means of transportation to reach Samal as well as taking a bus ride from Sta. Ana, Davao City, near Magsaysay Park to be able to reach Penaplata. From Penaplata proper it would be around four kilometers land trip to Cannibad. Though the road is stiff, it would be nothing compared to the paradise view of Cannibad that awaits you. 
May you have a great time staying here, the same thing that we experienced.  Enjoy Life!!! :)

Eden Mountain Resort

Image
Eden Mountain Resort is located in Bayabas, Toril, Davao City. It may take forty-five minutes to be able to reach it from the city proper of Davao City. It is a mountain resort conducive for weddings, adventures, hiking, camping, dining and many more. It has the overlooking view of Davao City and the Davao Gulf. It was such a nice place that looks like you had been transported to another world away from the busy city. I was lucky enough to be able to visit this place more than once. Eden Mountain Resort is a sister company of my former employer that somehow I am updated with the latest promos and have discounts. I had been able to have a one night stay here with my friends and enjoyed the different rides. My former company's christmas party was also celebrated here. So you see, I had a lot of memorable memories with Eden and the most unforgettable is when I stayed here with my husband. We had been able to experience their excellent accommodation and had a wonderful tour aroun…

Manila Ocean Park

Image
I always dreamed to go to Manila Ocean Park. I think it is the only Oceanarium in the Philippines. I am on the  southern part of my country and Manila Ocean Park is on the northern part so I never imagined that I can still be able to visit this place. So here it is, Manila Ocean Park is located in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines. It is at the back of Quirino Grand Stand which is famous as the place where new presidents of the Philippines take their oath.  From the Ninoy Aquino Airport, we ride a taxi which cost us P250 pesos as fare to be able to reach Manila Ocean Park. The entrance fee is P400 per person as regular rate, children 4.5 feet and below P350 while children who are 2 feet and below is free in admission, there is 20% discount for senior citizen and 10% for Manila residents with valid id. After paying our admission fee, we roam around the oceanarium as long as we want. So, here are some of the photos I have taken. Enjoy!!!

Surallah, South Cotabato

Image
I couldn't count anymore how many times I had been to Surallah, South Cotabato. My mother has relatives here and my brother was transferred to this municipality by his employer. So we often visit here or merely passby on our way to General Santos or to Lake Sebu. The last time I had been here was when I  visited my brother after a leisure visit at Lake Sebu. The first thing that attract my attention when I reach this place is the beautiful landmark at the heart of the municipality. I couldn't help myself in taking pictures.

     This could be found along the way and in one of the intersections of Surallah. I never really hesitated to cross the busy street and reach this place to have some pictures. This is truly the landmark of Surallah.

Lake Sebu, South Cotabato

Image
The first time I had been to Lake Sebu was during my last years in High School in which I attended a science camping which was held there. I was mesmerize by this place the first time I saw it. I kept on looking the wide green lake. It is very visible anywhere you would go at the community of Lake Sebu, South Cotabato. Back then, the place was not yet developed as a tourist spot but there are already a lot of resorts to choose from. The road to the falls is not yet accessible to four-wheel vehicles.        Several years after, I had been able to visit Lake Sebu. There is already a zipline. The road to the falls had already been developed and the tourism of the community is very much supported by the local government. So before I expose the amazing things you can do and visit in Lake Sebu, here are some details on how you could be able to reach Lake Sebu. If you are from far places, the nearest airport is in General Santos City. After reaching Gen. Santos, you could ride a bus in g…
