Then walk down going to the falls yet you have the option to ride another motorcycle/habal habal for your convenience. The habal habal will wait for you. Then we added some fare to bring us to Oslob heritage where the town proper of Oslob is.

This hotel is pretty small and secluded which is exactly what we needed to adjust to the jet lag that was starting to set in. The next morning we decided to venture out to Sumilon Island all on our own. After a small hiccup while riding the local bus (they didn't drop us off at the location we asked for) we found a tricycle who was willing to help us out. He led us to a small ro ...
