Bohol-Cebu Tour

Left Manila at 7:00 am, arrived Cebu around 9:30am.. WEESAM EXPRESS ferry bound to Tagbilaran at 9:30am but unfortunately we werent able to catch up so we need to wait for the second trip at 2:00pm but since we were saving time we transferred to SUPERCAT, their next trip is at 12:00noon a bit earlier i guess but as usual there was slight delay. We arrived Tagbilaran approximately 3:00pm.. Dauis Church is just a few blocks away from our place, we went back to Tagbilaran to eat and buy some other stuffs.

There was no available flights anymore straight from Manila to Tagbilaran so we passed by Cebu instead.

DAY 3 
Bohol to Cebu

HInagdanan Cave and Alona Kew Beach.  We hired a private tricycle for the short tour before we go back to Cebu. We paid 500 pesos for that.

 In the afternoon around 2:00pm we travel back to Cebu and checked in at Marriot Hotel. It was a tiring day and as soon as we got into the room i lie down and stretch my aching legs. After diner, we stroll around the hotel and at the Ayala Center.

Good Morning Cebu! We woke up early as we could and swim at the hotel's pool and visit the spa as well. We ate pizza and some bachos for breakfast.

its not so yummy, but atleast its edible.

We checked out at 2:00pm and we leave our luggages at the hotel while we tour around Cebu City. We hire a taxi. I forgot how much we paid, i guess 1,500 up.  These are the places we've been:

Marriot Hotel
Ayala Town Center Cebu
Magellan's Shrine 
Basilica de Santo NiƱo
Fort San Pedro
Casa Gorordo
Taoist Temple
Mactan Shrine
Cebu City Market 

After the tour, we return to the hotel and pick up our luggages.  We are rushing coz we're late in our flight.  Added luggage for pasalubongs, its really heavy. When we reach to the airport later did we know that the plane was delayed. (Well, kaya nga PAL, palaging late hehe.) It was a relief but since im very tired its annoying to wait that long.  Oh well, i slept in the plane and i guess i left my mouth open (hahaha! that happens when im exhausted) We arrived Manila around 11:00pm, There comes another waiting.  Wala pang sundo. See how upset i am.  I throw myself in the sidewalk of the airport. x_x

Anyway, the trip was so enjoyable for me especially im with my family.  
Happy much. ^_^

Amana Waterpark

Some parts of this resort is still undergoing construction on some parts but is open to public hehe obviously. Amana waterpark is a nice resort, the highlights are the action figures such as Spiderman, Batman, Indiana Jones, Avatar, Lion King, Go-ku, other cartoon figures, Madagascar, Lord of the Rings, Justice League, some Disney characters and many more. Its just that we didnt enjoyed the place that much coz its very very super crowded, as in. So if you guys plan to go there better plan it on weekdays. hehe.
