Conquering the Bewitching Siquijor

When I told some of my friends that I am going to explore Siquijor on my own, words like scary, witch and the like instantly came out of their mouths. These and a couple of occult warnings which could send chills up your spine if you are someone not keen to the supernatural.

Well, I can say I am one adventurous gal and I can no longer postpone a visit to this island province much longer. So when a chance to book an uber cheap round trip ticket to Dumaguete came up last year, I reserved right away. 

It was supposed to be a five day sojourn, but my work schedule didn't allow it. I trimmed down my vacation to four days and voila, I was still able explore Siquijor for two whole days, my eyes and heart all full.

Where to Stay in Siquijor: Blue Wave Inn

I originally planned a solo trip to Siquijor. Last year, I was able to score an uber cheap RT airfare for only 560 pesos. Siquijor has always been in my travel pipeline and I was glad to share my successful booking to a couple of friends.

Well, it turned out they wanted to accompany me on this planned solo getaway. I immediately invited them given that three heads are better than one. Specially when it comes to travel expenses.

Since one became three, we agreed to look for a nice place in Siquijor that could conveniently accommodate us all three. We also wanted a room that comes with free breakfast.

Bohol's Never Fading Beauty

Traveling with Marx has always been on the laid back side. Being the cool and collected guy that he is, I learned to like his type of traveling through the years. For this year, our trip was set in the ever beautiful province of Bohol. He mentioned of wanting to stay in Panglao this time. I immediately agreed to be with him upon hearing the magic word which was beach. Beach means 'Yes, I will go with you!' This guy knows me pretty well.

Be Grand Resort: A Resort Like No Other

In my second visit to the beautiful Bohol province, my friend and I were blessed to have stayed at one of the finest resorts in Panglao Island. Be Grand Resort truly lived up to its name - exquisite and modern, superior and elegant with just the right amount of laid-back charm.

'BE Grand Resort sets in 2.9 hectares of land in the sun-drenched beach of Panglao Island, Bohol - home to the famous Chocolate Hills and one of the smallest primates, the Philippine Tarsier. The resort is just 40 minutes away from Tagbilaran Airport anf 35 minutes away from the city's shopping and commercial district.'
