Beautiful Bohol.

In 2013, Joef and I spent our honeymoon in Bohol (particularly, in Dumaluan Beach Resort).  Bohol, indeed, is such a beautiful place. We spent about 4 days and 3 nights there.

Dumaluan Beach Resort is ok. Their rate was within our budget. They had a live band every night during our stay. The singer and the band was good. Their food is also yummy. The place is clean and their staff were friendly. Their CR is clean! 🙂

It was my first time to go to Bohol and that’s one for the books. They do have a rich culture and the places in Bohol are worth going to.

I finally saw a real Tarsier. Yep, they’re tiny and sleepy.

I enjoyed eating along Loboc River . That’s riding a boat with a lunch buffet. Sorry, I wasn’t able to take our own picture, I was busy eating. Hahaha.( Loboc River picture taken from primer.com.ph )

I’ve seen their man-made forest. If I had a hammock, it’s probably nice to take a nap there.

We spent an afternoon inside a Butterfly Sanctuary.

Was lucky enough to get a “postcard” material photo of the famous Chocolate Hills.

I’m really glad we were able to see it before the earthquake happened.

Also, the Baclayon Church before it was ruined.

And my favorite part of Bohol…

 

Tips when in Bohol:

  1. Prepare small bills (for tips, fare, cheap yummy food). I could say that during our stay, it’s cheap to travel in Bohol.
  2. Bring a ducky or a water proof bag for your gadgets. A lot of water activities you can do in Bohol. For a person, like me, who is not a water baby… I enjoyed Bohol water activities.
  3. Always bring a drinking water. You’ll need it to beat the sun.
  4. Bring a good pair of swimsuit and goggles.
  5. Put on sun block, your favorite sun hat or bring an umbrella.
  6. Have fun! Bohol is such a beautiful place. 🙂

In short, our honeymoon was well spent in Bohol. A lot of things to do, friendly Boholanos, picture perfect photos can be taken too.

I hope to be back in Bohol soon and hopefully, with Lexi. 🙂

Trip to Dream Play, City of Dreams.

Taking Lexi to Dream Play was really more of an experience. Too bad she’s still too small and too young to appreciate it.

Good thing her cousins came because I think the place is for older kids. Maybe for kids about at least 4 years old. There’s a section in the park where kids can climb, hang, run around and slide. (I’m sorry, I forgot the name of this section in the park.) But don’t worry, they look safe. Each kid inside needs to wear a safety harness. There’s also another section where kids learn to bake and actually do some baking.

Otherwise, without her cousins, I would really think the park fee is too pricey.

For kids like Lexi, there’s a story telling section in the library. You just need to know the schedule. Babies and toddlers can sit on the floor while they listen to a person in costume.

I think her favorite was the Kung Fu Panda section, similar to the XBox game, you have to follow Po. Po supposedly teaches you how to do Kung Fu.  Lexi couldn’t help but watch the kids in this section.

For our merienda, we had some pizza and ice cream. Their pizza was good. A decent meal for one would cost about Php300.

Our last stop was the 4D movie. Nothing outstanding, it was ok.

I could say that this place is really for kids between 4-8 years old. Their set up is cute. Their pizza is good. Their system is good, they are organized inside.

In general, I could say that we will come back to this place but maybe when Lexi’s about 4 years old.

We have yet to experience City of Dreams accommodation. Lexi’s weakness is lounging in fluffy hotel beds. 🙂
