  • Sumilon Island An Affordable DIY Trip To Cebus Gorgeous Sandbar

    Sumilon Island has been on my travel wish-list ever since wanderlust woke up a couple of years ago.

  • Places To Visit In Cebu

    Cebu is easily one of Ranz and I's favorite places to visit in the Philippines. We love the Queen City of the South so much that we went there three times last year. Cebu is the perfect blend of the past and present. It's amazing how a city that is highly urbanized still preserves their rich history. Other than that, the beautiful beaches in Mactan always make me want to book the next seat sale! Cebu has everything I want to find in a place I visit, that's why we keep coming back.

    DAY 4 – OCTOBER 18, 2016

    On our 2nd day, we chose to do some South Cebu activities.

    Since It's 3-4 hours road trip going to Oslob, we left at ALT at around 4 in the morning and just caught up on some sleep during the ride. But our driver woke us up to see this beautiful sunrise.

    We also passed by at Oslob's old Cuartel and the old church near it (almost just across it), the Nuestra Señora de la Immaculada Conception church, which is one of the oldest churches in Cebu, to have some photos.


    We arrived at the Oslob Whaleshark Encounter location by aro ...
