The one that captures my attention in Sagbayan are the statue of different toy characters and animals, which are huge and fun to look at. The viewing decks in this place are an attraction itself, which give one a 360 degree view of the chocolate hills. From this place the island of Cebu can be seen. The sea that separates Bohol and Cebu are really spectacular to look at.

The scenery at the top of it is the 360 degrees of the province of Bohol. From here you can see the beauty of nature. Refreshing and unwinding to rest after the trek. This cross can be seen while cruising the Loboc River. At night it has light.

Philippine has a colorful and beautiful culture. Filipinos love to dance and sing, that's why if u would notice even in a small village there are videoke bars. When I was in grade school I would always part of choral group and dance troupe. One of the dances that I didn’t like to dance is the tinikling. Tinikling is a folk dance imitating the movement of the native bird called tikling. It was so hard for me because the rhythm is fast plus I have to be mindful of the bamboo sticks that might clip my feet. A dancer of this dance should have a sharp ear for the fast rhythm.

The entrance to Taytay falls is 20 pesos per head for day tour. Before we proceed to do the trek we decided to order pancit habhab, a local delicacy but the small restaurant or turo-turo in the local term, had no available noodle for pancit habhab. So we ordered Pancit Bihon(rice noodle) instead. One order of pancit bihon cost 70 pesos. We could not eat all of them; one order could feed 4 to 5 persons. After eating we toke out the remaining Pancit Bihon and brought it to the water falls.
Trekking to the water falls was easy. The path way is already cemented so it so easy to trek. Actually this is the easiest trek that we had. The visitors were all Filipinos. I did not see any foreigners there unlike in
The water is too cold. We couldn’t stay in the water for long. The place is really awesome. The vegetation is still rich. It’s a safe place there are civilian guards everywhere, who remind everyone not too litter and be careful with exploring the place.
The water falls height is more or less 20ft., clear and cold.
We stayed there for just a couple of hour, it was short but we explored the place. The trip was awesome and worth of our time.

In the province of Sorsogon, one of the churches that is always nice to visit is the one in Casiguran. It is a hilltop Church like one of that in Irosin. This church is in Honor of the Most Holy Rosary through Virgin Mary.

Going to the provinces are nice to experience primitive ways of life. One of the things that Filipinos should be thankful of is having a rich in natural resources. Mostly those who are living in the provinces washing their clothes in the river or spring where they could hang their clothes while swimming too.

Tagaytay, considered as the country's second summer capital because of its crisp and cool climate all year around, is a treasure box of pleasure points in by itself. Tagaytay will become one of the best places for you to visit, relax and lay way back enjoying the clean, cool air amongst a pleasant and safe atmosphere.
With its cool climate and clean air, Tagaytay City is the perfect place for leisure activities like picnics, horseback riding, camping and sightseeing. It makes for an affordable weekend getaway for most Filipino families living near the area.
Tagaytay, however, is more than a picnic haunt. The place has given rise to many congregational houses and retreat centers. It is also conductive to spiritual meditation that is earned yet another title for being the "Center of Spiritual Retreat." One of them is the Divine World Seminary, SVD. We have two friends who were seminarians there so from time to time I, my friends and family members visited them. Actually we attended their respective ordinations.
Very inspiring moment
Great to meet those who are willing to dedicate their lives to God.
