Conquering Oslob

Conquering Oslob in One Day

Going south is no longer a problem, you can always go to Cebu South Bus terminal and and take Ceres Bus line on every 30 minutes interval. In our case, since we are about 10, we’ve decided to rent a van instead. It’s comfy and you guys can do any craze things you want to do inside the van while on the go.

Let’s head on and conquer Oslob! Oslob is 2nd to last town of Cebu southern most which is Santander. (You’ll be familiar with Santander if you go round south to break in your new bike or car).

That’s 3 hours of a travel, whew! That’s far!

Next stop is Tumalog Falls

It’s not so distant from where “Butanding” watching is, maybe 15min or less. From stop point, you can either take more ride by habal-habal or you just can walk. The road is slope, so watch your back.

The place is relaxing. We went there 2pm and the sun is just slightly up above and still so hot but the nature view are worth its cooling nature. More about Oslob Heritage Park.

We headed back to the city, there’s still one more stop in mind we would like to visit. The beautiful  place in Boljoon.

 

Boljoon Museum

We don’t know exactly which one was it so we’ve asked somebody along the road. Hurrah! It’s nearby from the side vendor where we ask guidance for. Yes, the place could be easily spotted because you can differentiate the road and the road view it has. It very nature like even it’s a highway.

This was the last stop before heading back to the city. Everyone’s tired and asleep in the van. It’s about 8pm when we’re able to get back into the Cebu City proper.
