A Quick Trip to Dumaguete, Siquijor and Cebu

It was an unplanned trip but since I've been to this  places before my friend/travel buddy Pen ( invited me to have quick trip in Dumaguete City, Siquijor and Cebu. It was like an amazing race trip.

It was 6:00am when we arrived in Dumaguete City. Hurriedly, we went to the Port of  Dumaguete to check the schedule for Siquijor. The original plan was to tour around Siquijor in the morning but since it was Saturday, there was no early morning trip so Pen and I decided had our breakfast and  visit  the waterfalls of Dumaguete City. In Valencia, we arranged a motorcyle  that will take us to Casaroro Falls and Pulang Bato Falls at the rate of Php500.00.

We were back at the Port of  Dumaguete at 10:20am but  the last trip that was scheduled in  the morning that will go to Siquijor was also 10:20am. Luckily, we catched the trip but we had to run. I remember the woman said " naa pa ang barko, dalagan ra mo" (the boat it still there but you have to run). I was amazed seeing dolphins in the ocean. The Port of Siquijor was stunning with wide white sand shoreline. There was a fast food near the port. We took our lunch and again, hire a single motorcycle for  another half day tour at php500.00. Another option is to rent a motorcyle but it is better to have a driver since they are familiar with  tourist destinations. The places we visited were the Old Enchanted Balete Tree, St. Isidore Church and Convent, Cambugahay Falls and St. Francis de Assisi Church And Bell Tower. Before heading back to Dumaguete City, we had the chance to buy t-shirts at a small souvenir shop near the Port.

The sun starts to set when we arrived in Port of Dumaguete . Many vendors were selling Kikiam at the Boulevard.  We bought some for our late snack while relaxing at the Boulevard and had our dinner at a restaurant nearby. Before we end the night, we had a dip at  Huiz Pool Swimpark in Balugo and strolled around Dumaguete City.

The next day, we leave Dumaguete City via Sibulan at 4:00am but before heading back we  visited  Kawasan Falls in the province of  Badian, had our breakfast and after taking photos we went back to Mactan Airport.
