Enchanted River - The Hidden Paradise in Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur

Do you believe that there are things our naked eyes supposed to see but realized that we cannot? Well, that’s amazing and I’d say enchanting. Honestly, I can’t find the right term for what I felt when I got fascinated with one of the tourist destinations in Philippines located in Talisay, Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.  This place is called “Enchanted River” and the name seems to tell us that magic surrounds the place.

As far as I can remember, you only need to travel a minimum of 8.5 hours from Davao City to reach the enchanted river.  It is actually situated in the center of Barangay Cambatong, It’s my first time to see such beautiful body of water and I think nothing will beat it. If only it’s right to believe that there are really creatures like “engkantado” and “engkantada” or shall we say fairies, I would believe it’s their kingdom.

Since I really like water, I keep diving to its mirrored like blue water. At first look, the enchanted river looks like a shallow river but when I tried to dive to see its bottom I failed. So, I guess our naked eyes don’t seem to see what it supposed to see in enchanted river. Finding it out there scared me a bit.   However, it doesn’t stop me and my friends to enjoy the place and be captivated by its beauty.

I think that’s how it should be when you are traveling and be given the chance to see the unique beautiful place like the enchanted river. So, until next trip!

Obong Spring in Dalaguete

Love is the reason why I’ve visited one of the most preferred summer destinations here in Cebu. Let us just say that my interest and love for this beautiful lady makes me act like a bee following where the beautiful flower goes. So, to my beautiful girlfriend this post is for you (as if I’m in a karaoke dedicating a song, lol.). I hope you still remember our memories in Obong Spring of Dalaguete Municipality.

Now, if you are interested to go there; you only need to travel the maximum distance of 88.49 km from the heart of Cebu City. Once you get there, you have to pay the affordable entrance fee. I believe it’s forthe maintenance of the place. I just hope they can keep it safe, clean and beautiful. In that way, a lot of people will have the chance to enjoy the Obong Spring.

Honestly, this travel wasn’t planned but it turned out to be enjoyable and memorable. Of course, it is because I was with my girlfriend plus the unique ambiance of the place. The place is also beautiful since it is really different from what I used to be in. Only, I wasn’t able to jump off to the water since the water level is not really that deep. I would like to do that since I really love water which gives me thrill. Lol!

Since you are reading this you must be a traveler too or just want to know where to go in the south for summer outing, right? Well, visit immediately the Obong spring today with your girlfriend, friends and family.
