    The Island Of Fire And Healing

    The island of Siquijor, home to some 90,000 people, has always been believed to be a place of spell-casting witches and voodoo dolls, but there's more to it than legends and myths. It was dubbed as Isla del Fuego or the Island of Fire by early Spaniard colonizers because when looked at from the sea, it seemed as if the island was on fire, but it only appeared so because of the swarm of fireflies circling the movale trees that lit up the island.

    Discovered in 1565 by the Legazpi expedition, Siquijor is a perfect starting point for island hopping and is comprised of six towns: Siquijor, Laren ...

    DIY Trip And Travel Guide To Dumaguete, Siquijor, Bohol And Cebu What To Do, Expenses And Itinerary For 6 Days

    Yes, you heard it right. It's very possible to conquer 4 provinces in the Philippines for less than one week. Last year, we did Siquijor, Dumaguete and Bohol for 4d4n. Regrets, that trip was so spontaneous and such a short vacation that we ended up not being able to blog about it. I still have some photos though on my Instagram to remind me how beautiful our country when it comes to exotic destinations. The summer is approaching so I am really "looking around" for the next Philippine destinations I want to go back and I think these places are on top of my bucketlist.

    How Siquijor Put Us Under A Spell

    Fear and excitement immediately gripped me upon hearing that Siquijor was our next stop.

    Fear because Siquijor is widely known as the land of enchantment, evil spirits and sorcery. Excitement because of the first reason, and the fact that I had been wanting to uncover the secrets of this mysterious island.

    Getting there

    We booked the cheapest flight to Dumaguete months ahead. My friends and I left Manila early in the morning and arrived in Dumaguete around 10 AM. We headed straight to the port and took the next boat to Siquijor. The ride lasted about 40 minutes.

    Best Kids Itinerary For Siquijor

    They say that you can travel the whole mystical island of Siquijor in about half a day ??" on a motorbike. Yes, it's true!

Although this is the Philippines so I am sure you can get away with it (eep, no helmets!) but I wouldn't recommend that! Safety first especially when traveling with young chil ...
