  • Island Hopping

    Boracay Island Things to Do

    I consider Allan Fun Tours as the most affordable Island Hopping tour in Boracay. We went there last July 2013 and for only P700 plus P20 for the snorkelling gears, we had an amazing tour with drink/eat-all-you-can lunch buffet. We want to try the Crystal Cove Cave so we paid an extra of P200 per person. I love the cave and the view outside the...

So, why not visit the Baguio Cathedral when you are visiting Baguio? The Baguio Cathedral offers mass on a daily basis if you are a pious Roman Catholic!

    What else can you do when you are in the City of Pines? Well, let me suggest. If you can afford the fee for horseback riding, then do! It is kind of fun for the kids.

  • Tarsier Sanctuary

    Bohol Things to Do

    Tarsiers are cute and just a size of your fist but they are stressed out when you visit them. Come to think of it, they are nocturnal and when some tourist go and visit them in the sanctuary, they'll keep waking up because of the noises. Poor tarsiers.

    It is one of the two lakes in Coron Island that is frequented by tourist. They said it is a freshwater lake but for me it is a little salty.
