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.
Take nothing, but pictures;
leave nothing, but footprints;
kill nothing but time.
-The Forest Camp
Valencia, a first class municipality of the newly-hailed Negros Province, is home to many wonders of nature. It can offer you pristine falls, rocky rivers, virgin forests, and relaxing hot springs. With that, during our Negros Trip, we listed Valencia as the first municipality to visit and we listed Valencia’s best nature park as our first stop.
Ten to fifteen minutes away from the Valencia town proper lies The Forest Camp Nature Park. True to its name, it is a unique and well-developed nature resort surrounded with trees, a river, rocks, bamboo rooms and function halls, natural pools, and many others.
