Aliwagwag Falls, Davao Oriental

Another must visit in Davao Oriental is the falls they called "Curtain Falls" or others name it as "Stairway-to-Heaven". The highest waterfalls in the Philippines with more than 100 cascading waterfalls. 

Aliwagwag Falls is a beautiful place for bonding activities with family and friends. There is a zipline in the Aliwagwag Falls Ecopark for adventure-goer tourists. With 680 meters long zipline, while hovering and breathtaking view of the nature. There is a monkey bridge to have a closer look of the falls. There are also picnic tables located near the falls so that it will be closer to the great view.

The Aliwagwag Falls is very accessible. No need to hike into a rainforest just to have a glimpse of the falls. The bridge in the above photo is the highway from Cateel, Davao Oriental. You can stop over and take photos along the road. 

Hope that I can come back someday here with my family. A not very long ride from Davao City, but a priceless experience.

Davao Oriental is a very nice place. Oriental means "east". Davao Oriental is located eastern Mindanao. It lies along the eastern coastline facing the "world's largest ocean", the Pacific Ocean.
That's why San Luis has a long beach long.

There are also rivers found here in Caraga. The Manurigao River found in the northern part of the municapality and the Caraga River, found in the southern part.

One destination we've been is the beach. My mother-in-law's family came here. And so we went for a vacation because she's boasting that the beaches here are so beautiful with black sand and waves from the open ocean.

This was already my second visit here in Caraga. My first visit was just a wonderful experience. We ate "kinilaw na pusit". A fresh catch from the sea. The sunset was beautiful. By then, while getting dark, we lighted a bonfire. Watching the waves and the heavy sound as it approaches the shore.

My second visit experience in this beach line was extraordinary. Eating native delicacies like lechon, kinilaw and sugba (grilled). While eating, you can see the water sparkling because of the sun's reflection. And when you're swimming on the beach, you can see your feet underneath. The waves are massaging your back. Foot scrub with the sand. All in one treat and pampering yourself.

We had a lot of fun.
Very relaxing.
The sounds of the waves.
The breeze..
A surely must visited place in Davao Oriental.

Seagull Mountain Resort

Planning on a vacation? Seagull Mountain Resort is a must-see destination here in Davao City. Located along Buda Road (Davao-Bukidnon Road), Barangay Lorega, Marilog District, Davao City.

This is the Buda Road. Foggy because when we arrived, it was drizzling here. So cold!

This is the waterfalls. It will take around five minutes to get down from the Entrance by riding their shuttle. You can take along with you your packed lunch or have a barbecue or grilled fish. So refreshing with so cold water.

This is the view. If you're a nature lover. You will gonna love staying here!

Tinuy-an Falls - Bislig City, Surigao del Sur

Another Pride of Mindanao! The Tinuy-an Falls! Located in the southern region of Mindanao. Another main tourist attraction in Bislig.

One of the widest waterfalls here in the Philippines. Most people noted this as the "Niagara Falls of the Philippines. This falls has 3 tiered. With a total height of 55 meters. They also said that it has a formation of rainbow rays around 9am to 11am. Unfortunately, we arrived here late in the afternoon. Didn't had a chance for the rainbow.

Sibadan Fish Cage - Surigao del Sur

A few minutes boat ride from Enchanted River. Since there are limited tables and chairs for lunch, we decided to take our lunch at Sibadan Fish Cage.

Before you get there, there are a lot of nice scenes. Clear waters. Amazing islets. Even huts standing in the middle of the waters.

Anyways, lets go to Sibadan Fish Cage.
Visitors can swim and do fishing.

This is my favorite! Eating time. We ordered crabs. Surigao is very rich with seafoods. Name it! Must-try is their dried seaweeds. I didn't got a chance to take some because it is order basis. Order now, you get it the next day. To sad because we don't have much time to staying in Surigao. I planned to make some salad from seaweeds.. Tsk tsk tsk... I'm so frustrated... hehehe

Wait till my next blog.. I will post the Tinuy-an Falls. I love this falls..

This is my third post about Bohol. All about nature.
This is the Alona Beach at Panglao. We arrived around sunset. And this is what I got! A beautiful sunset view that wants me to swim because of its gentle waves rushing to the shore.
The famous Chocolate Hills of Bohol! At last! What a wonderful creation. Amazing!
The Man-made Forest. I just love to see the leaves fall.. I want to take some photos of them falling but unfortunately we are catching up the time for the Loboc River Lunch!
Up close in personal.. A Tarsier in Tarsier Conservatory, Loboc, Bohol. Very cute!
Another first time in Bohol --- Crossing across a hanging bridge!! What freaks me most is that my colleagues are jumping and I'm in the middle of the bridge! Very nice experience! hehe
The Loboc River. Lunch while sailing along the river... Unforgettable experience with the floating restaurant!
Two thumbs up for Bohol Tour!

Trekking Manila

These photos are my collection during my trip in Manila. It was summer time and my friend invited to stay with her even just for a week. And of course, I definitely agreed and had fun!

My friend's apartment is near Ninoy Aquino International Airport. This international airport is located along the border between Paranaque and Pasay, and southwest of Makati. This is a busy airport and the main international gateway to the Philippines. Anf of course, the hub for all Philippine Airlines. That's why in my photo, Philippine Airlines as my subject.
Anyways, we just stayed in her terrace and counted every airplane taking off and the airplane that landed. What a past time! But at the same time, we catch things up.

This was taken at Glorietta Mall, one of the largest malls in Manila. Located in Makati City which is owned by Ayala Corporation. This mall contains lots of shops and restaurants. There are also cinemas, gyms, arcades and has a large atrium for special events. Kinda tiring walking around the mall. At least I burnt some of my calories! hehe

Taken at Trinoma Mall. Another Ayala Land owned. One thing I like in this mall. Its natural feature. There is a rooftop park which contains many water features. I think there were seven, and one of them is in this photo! Amazing!

Bonifacio High Street. Another Ayala Land property located in Taguig. First in Philippine retail. Along in its street, there are diverse cuisine, a lot of latest fashions. Experiencing mall in a park.

Thanks for reading my getaway! Happy blogging bloggers!
