What I Want to Do on Vacation

Posted on September 30, 2009 by under Things to Do, Travel.    

The crappy thing about traveling to the Philippines from the US is that you lose a day. We’ll be leaving Wichita tomorrow afternoon and we won’t actually arrive in Cebu until 11:30 AM on Saturday. We lose all of Friday traveling. Yuck.

Anyway, I think the plan is to go directly to Bohol from Cebu. I’m not sure yet if we will be staying in Tagbilaran or Panglao; or if we will be staying in one of the resorts or at Tita Esper’s house there. What I do know for sure is that I want to check out the following:

  • Tarsiers
  • Loboc River
  • Butterfly Sanctuary
  • Hinagdanan Cave
  • Chocolate Hills
  • Rice Terraces

I’m thinking that we will stay in Bohol for a couple of days before taking a ferry to Dumaguete and then finally going to Tanjay. There is supposed to be a big party on Friday night for mom’s birthday and Tito Cyrus promise me a tour of the geothermal power plant where he works (I think it’s the one in Valencia because it’s the closest one to Dumaguete). While in Negros, I also want to do the following:

  • Casaroro Falls
  • Dolphin Watching
  • Antulang/Bahura
  • Family Time

We plan to leave Tanjay a few days early so we can spend time in Cebu doing touristy-type stuff. Having lived in the Philippines, I never really got to visit the tourist attractions so this is my opportunity to do it. Plus, Brian’s never been to the Philippines so we want to give him the full treatment. The things I want to do in Cebu are:

  • Kawasan Falls
  • Sumilon Island
  • Casino Filipino
  • Tops Skyline Garden
  • Jetscape Adventures
  • Bantayan
  • Boracay

I know this is a long list. I doubt that we’ll get to do everything that I want to do during the two weeks we’re there. Though, if we don’t then we’ll have even more reasons to return. Maybe we’ll be able to spend three weeks next time. 🙂
