Photo of the Day: Long-Legged Philippines

We know that Dahilayan is lovelier because of its pine trees that can,  in the not too distant future, rival Baguio (making the zipline experience more magical).  While we know that the giraffes in the Philippines are found in the Calauit safari in Palawan, we didn’t know that there are replicas of these long-legged creatures in Dahilayan. It’s really a very lovely place (you guys should include it in your travel bucket list). So what happens when a traveler — like cozitsmeshiera, with her lovely photo featured here — decides to challenge the slender pine trees and the long-legged giraffes to a fun, uhm, stand-off? Here, check her cool photo: Continue reading Photo of the Day: Long-Legged Philippines

5 Reminders to Enjoy the Sandbox Adventure Park by Alviera (Porac, Pampanga)

Every kid enjoys the sandbox, literally a small box filled with sand. Imagine exploding the size of the sandbox and the vastly increasing the number of fun activities in it, and you have The Sandbox Adventure Park right in the middle of Alviera, out here in what used to be a quiet, lahar-stricken portion of Porac, Pampanga. Because we can’t resist the usual sneaky way of having fun with the intent of presenting our experience here in VisitPinas, we devoted one whole weekend day to explore The Sandbox.

Nature and Excitement at Dahilayan Eco Adventure Park (Bukidnon)

“Cagayan de Oro’s favorite destination.” This tagline appears in Dahilayan’s website, which we accessed when this article was posted. We’ve visited Dahilayan’s physical location before we’ve dropped by its website, and the experience (physical location before the website) is akin to watching a movie after reading the book (from which the movie is based). As the usual case, the movie hardly does justice to the book’s rich details and story. The website does not even come close to the beauty of Dahilayan Eco Adventure Park, which is a good thing. Allow us to tell you why. Continue reading Nature and Excitement at Dahilayan Eco Adventure Park (Bukidnon)

Tagaytay Ridge Zipline and Cable Car, Picnic Grove

“Could we go horseback riding and try the zipline in Tagaytay?” our son said one weekend. Ah, the perfect excuse to go out of town. No need for convincing. Doesn’t matter that it’s past lunchtime already. Pack the necessaries and off we go to Tagaytay. Continue reading Tagaytay Ridge Zipline and Cable Car, Picnic Grove

Picnic Grove, Tagaytay City

The Picnic Grove. There’s a number of Filipino movies that feature this. It’s a good place in Tagaytay City to have, what else, a picnic. Picture this: a full view of Taal volcano or Taal lake, picnic huts or gazebos hugging the slope of the hill, cold breeze massaging your cheeks, the aroma of home-made fresh pork barbeque cooked by the guests themselves, kids and dads flying kites, and horseback riding at the fringes. Food and beverage readily available everywhere. Can’t picture it? Here, look at this photo. Continue reading Picnic Grove, Tagaytay City
