Sunken Cemetery

The Sunken Cemetery of Camiguin Island marks the swept remains of the island’s rested locals. Driven underwater when Mt. Vulcan Daan erupted in 1870’s, the large cross has served the town’s people, as well as the tourists, a scenic spot to memorialize the departed buried there. PICT_20160405_163322.JPG

If you wish to go to White Island, my number 1 tip is to go early bc there’s no any trees out there they only offer big umbrellas and it’s quite expensive, its 200 pesos.

HELLO beautiful people. Do you want to visit Surigao Del Sur with their famous Enchanted River and Tinuy-an falls which is the (Niagara Falls of the Philippines) but don’t know how? Do you think it’s too far so you think it’s expensive? Well here’s the solution for you guys (better to read this until the end hehehe) So yeah, we went so Surigao last April 9, 2016 with my Bestfriend Evan and the two of us were able to visit the top tourist destinations in the Surigao Del Sur in very cheap and affordable way.. So let’s get started! 🙂

First, you have to take a bus to Surigao Del Sur..Second, you must continue reading several blogs on how to go to Surigao Del Sur.. Third, you must have a big money on your pocket (just kidding) Just don’t expect that the trip is a relaxing one because it’s not. It is for adventurous people likes us (haha) who doesn’t mind sitting in the bus for 8 hours and riding a motorcycle on a dangerous road with a motorcycle driver who barely you don’t know (scary though) but you have to trust them. So yeah, have fun and I hope you visit soon in Surigao Del Sur ❤
