I was eating dinner when my father gave me a call saying that they’re gonna be in Bacolod (where my apartment is) within 2 days. The call ended with our decision of me going home with them(which is really really far). My parents went to Bacolod for a vacation and not really with the intention of picking us up so my brother and I went with them on their vacation. Here are the 3 places we’ve visited along the way.

941565_10200089209778408_1276253796_nThis is our family car. It’s the Ford Everest Limited Edition. It’s very spacious and comfortable. It can handle rough roads or any mountain-like roads.

 

 

 

 

 

First stop was in Bearland Resort, Tigbajuan, Iloilo city.

It’s really a great place to unwind and relax. The pool is overlooking the beach. The place has a good ambiance. It’s very clean and quiet. The prices are expensive though but it’s worth it.

Second was in Campuestohan Highland Resort, Talisay, Bacolod city

The place is outlooking the view of Bacolod. You can watch the sunset from up there. The road going up there is bumpy and a bit long but there’s a shortcut going there. They have cottages or rooms where you can spend the night. It’s a good place to spend quality time with your friends or family. The place is packed with fun.

For those who want to commute: Take a Shopping, Northbound Terminal jeep then transfer to Talisay jeep then ask the driver to take you where you can ride a Barangay Concepcion jeep. Ask the driver of the Brgy.Concepcion jeep to take you to where you can ride a tricycle to Campuestohan Highland Resort.

For those who have a private car, take the shortcut in Granada.

Also you can request the service going to Campuestohan wherein the price is P100 per person. Never ride a taxi going there, they demand an expensive price.

The entrance fee is P150 per person.

Next stop was already in Mindanao: 7 falls, Lake Sebu, Surallah,South Cotabato

They have 7 waterfalls that you have to see but the best experience is the zipline adventure. It’s highest zipline in Southeast Asia. The fun was incomparable. The price for the zipline is P350 per person, but you will experience the zipline twice.

The 2nd picture is actually taken on our road going to 7 falls,Lake Sebu. This is in their roundball. You can just find this in the middle of the road so be careful in crossing to get here.LOL!

The 3rd and 4th picture is taken near their restaurant. You have to climb up to get there but the food is tasty. Never forget to order their “Chicharong tilapia” .

The waterfalls behind me on the 3rd picture is the 2nd falls. Though far, the vapor touches us because of the strong impact of water from a very high distance to the ground.

This is the 2nd falls. After the zipline, you can just walk to get here. The falls was too high that the vapor reached us at the top, near the restaurant.

It’s a fun place for the adventurous persons. Also try to stay fit before going here to experience the full fun.

On our way we also had some great experiences from different hotels and restaurants that I would really love to share:

When staying in Ilo2 with a group of friends or family, choose Grand Tower Hotel located near Atrium Mall or in front of Avon. They have clean rooms with affordable prices and great staffs.This room we got is located on the 7th floor so we had a great view of Iloilo and their pier.

If you’re a tourist and wants the best hotel regardless of its price, choose Amigo Terrace hotel, its the best hotel in Iloilo. They have comfortable, clean and classy rooms. The breakfast is appetizing with its wide variety of food you can choose from. They have rice meals, cereals, bread, salad and many more for breakfast.

The accommodations are worth it. The staff are welcoming and greets you with a smile. See more of this great hotel on their own website: amigoterracehotel.com

Seafood Island Restaurant is a fun way to dine. They have a group package where you can Boodle fight. It is where the food is placed on banana leaves and your gonna eat without using a plate. In Bacolod, it is located in Ayala Mall (North District)

This is what it will look like after you eat.

This is the view when you eat in Breakthrough, Villa, Iloilo city. They serve good tasting and fresh foods. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you want some seafoods for lunch or dinner. They also have the best pinoy foods.

This was an unexpected summer adventure I had with my family. We weren’t complete though, because my older sister is working but we tried to make the most of it getting the best out of every place we can stop by. My family and I became closer because of this. We experienced fun and some problems during this trips which made us know each other more and made our love for each other grow deeper. When we got home, my time for my sister and her family was priceless.

Thank you God for this great summer vacation I had with my family. Our family was complete again and everything went better than expected coz my expectations are usually different form God’s plan. God is the Master of Surprises. ❤ ❤
