Three hours south of Cebu, the humble municipality of Oslob started gaining popularity because of the famous gentle giants once more famously seen in Donsol, Sorsogon: The Whale Shark (Rhyncodon typus).

Boracay: One of the most beautiful islands of the Philippines
“Johnn! Wake up! We’re going to Boracay!”
My brother woke me up somewhere 8:30am in the morning and I was still feeling too lazy to get up. He already mentioned about it the day before but I thought it was rather peculiar that we would suddenly have tickets to Caticlan. I was really thinking my younger brother was gonna play a prank on me and so I decided to humor him. I got out of my bed, picked up my duffel bag and Continue reading →

Just less than an hour away from Cebu City, the Island of Mactan is well known as a diver’s school ground for basic diving courses, and also a favorite activity among tourists: Island Hopping. The best thing about Island hopping in Cebu is that it’s not just going from one island to another, you actually get to swim in the waters, dock on the islands and experience the natural beauty surrounding you.
