merged from my blogspot! : CEBU – BOHOL 2013 TRIP 4D 3N :)

Hey there… time to post our very own adventures.. take time to thank the Lord for his wonderful creations. Thanks to our very own team mate Earl kasi he’s from Tubigon Bohol and he’s very eager to help us with our adventure wherein he gave us some tips before we arrange our itinerary.
Note: kasi without his help.. we will not be able to arrange our own itinerary! 🙂
if you want to visit the place in a chronological way (wherein you don’t have to go back and forth and you want to save money) take a trip to Tubigon not in tagbilaran kasi Tagbilaran is very far Except kung plan nyo mag swimming or island getaway tour then Going to Tagbilaran is the right place for you!
just a tip: Tour Trip: lahat ng gusto namin napuntahan namin It’s very ideal na you would go on a trip na marami kayo (group trip) it’s way cheaper pero worth it na yung tour namin because 3,000 php lang yung binayaran namin (rent a car 3k and van 3.5k). No taxi, No PUV in Bohol so might as well rent a van or a car…
Itinerary as follows 🙂
CEBU: AUGUST 31 (Saturday) DAY1  1355H – 1510H
– Sampaguita Suites Plaza Garcia check in time 4 pm
> Less than a minute from McDonald’s Mactan!

just a tip: you can buy cheap stuffs like Cebu key chains at street vendors along Basilica and Magellan’s cross 10 pcs/100php
