With that, I am launching my blog’s #TravelTuesdays special with this unforgettable experience of ours during our visit to these pristine waterfalls in the Queen City of the South!

Chasing the Sunrise at Bantayan Island Nature Park and Resort

It was the day before our Bantayan Island trip that I was panicking to find another hotel for us to stay into because from a 1D1N plan, we abruptly decided to extend the trip with another day and night. I think it was a blessing in disguise when all the other hotels were full because if it was not for that, I wouldn’t find this gem, Bantayan Island Nature Park and Resort.

La Playa Estrella: Great Food and Beach Lights at Night, but it’s Not Much

If you’re looking for a night party, this is the place for you. But if you are looking for a place to relax with nature, you better go to Amihan Beach Cabanas or Bantayan Island Nature Park.

1.5D1N Anniversary Getaway to Tagaytay for less than Php3400! (with Travel Guide and Summary of Expenses)

Anniversaries are always best when celebrated because it marks a huge milestone in your relationship as a couple. That is why, when our 3rd couple anniversary came last July 13, 2017, I really did not think twice when I said that I want it to be celebrated in the Metropolitan Manila. Given that I am from Cebu, I know that the cost is terribly expensive, but I just went for it!

When you say Metropolitan Manila, there are quite a lot of romantic places to choose from. There is Ilocos Sur (Vigan, Pagudpud, and Laoag). There are Zambales, Batangas, Baguio, Sagada, Cavite, and Tagaytay. At first, I was really hooked up with Ilocos Sur. Unfortunately, Ilocos Sur is 10 to 12 hours away from Manila by bus, and that is just impractical given that I only have 6 days in Manila for this celebration. So, I chose my 2nd option, that is Tagaytay!

1D1N in Badian for less than Php 600! (with Itinerary, Travel Guide, and Summary of Expenses)

Cebu is full of weekend getaway spots and Badian will absolutely appear at the top of your searches. Being one of the top tourist places in the Cebu province, Badian is known for its white sand beaches, pristine waterfalls, and diving spots. It doesn’t matter if you plan to stay there for a full week or for just one day. Badian will not disappoint as long as you know where you’re going and what you’re doing!

One weekend, my sister and I were thinking to go camping at a white beach somewhere in Cebu that would not cost us much. I found Lambug Beach in Google very quickly and from there, we started to pack.

A 5-hour Visit to the great Kawasan Falls (with Travel Guide and Expenses)

If you are not going to do Canyoneering, the visit to Kawasan Falls will not be worth it.

In my 8 years of living in Cebu City, Kawasan Falls is one legend that I always hear about. I never went there in the past because Canyoneering is too mainstream! *laughs Last weekend, since my sister and I visited Badian to camp at Lambug Beach, it is hard to ignore the urge to at least take a peek of the legendary Kawasan Falls of Cebu.

Disclaimer: We didn’t do Canyoneering. We just visited the location. So if you are looking for Canyoneering articles for Kawasan Falls, this is not a place for you.

White Beach + Chill Camping + Affordable Weekend by the Sea = Badian’s Lambug Beach (Travel Guide and Expenses)

My experience during my beach camping at Lambug Beach, Badian. Read on!

There are three (3) popular beaches that will appear in your search when you Google “beach campsite in Cebu.” The first and by far the most popular one would be (1) Basdaku, Moalboal then (2) Tingko Beach, Alcoy and lastly (3) would be Lambug Beach, Badian.

My sister and I chose Lambug Beach! Reason is that, it is the least popular of all the three, therefore it means, lesser crowds! So, let’s start on what I really mean with “White Beach” + “Chill Camping” + “Affordable Weekend by the Sea” in the title of this article.

If you are planning to go to Lambug Beach in the future, be sure to read on!

Big-ot Falls: The Mini-canyoneering Experience in Hilongos, Leyte (With Travel Guide)

I never exactly thought that there exists such a beautiful spot near my home.

Big-ot Falls is located in Brgy. San Isidro, Hilongos, Leyte. It has become popular to the Hilongosnons earlier this year when the incumbent Mayor, Hon. Albert Villahermosa, visited the place. When the visit was shared online, Big-ot Falls has become the talk of the town.

Big-ot Falls is not yet popular to people outside of Hilongos. I am also thinking of keeping it away from the outside world to preserve it, but it is too difficult not to blog about its pristine beauty. It really was captivating. ❤
