Bohol Part IV: Loboc River

WHEN: DEC. 9-12, 2005

The next stop was Loboc River which is 21 km. from Tagbilaran City. Our driver was the one who made the reservation. We paid P250.00 each for the cruise and buffet lunch, and another P10.00 ticket each (I forgot to ask what was the ticket for).

Most of the tables were already occupied by a group of Korean tourists.

While having a nice buffet lunch, we just relax and enjoyed the surrounding view of the Loboc River. The food was just okay. We had barbecue pork, calamaris, beef, chicken, vegetables, grilled fish and fresh fruits for dessert.

We passed by a large vegetation of nipa, coconuts and some houses along the riverbank. Some children were having fun and showing off some acrobatic skills by jumping from the coconut tree to the river.

Loboc River was featured in the movie "Panaghoy sa Suba" (Call of the River) starring Philippine Actor Cesar Montano. The movie was one of the entries in Metro Manila Film Festival last Dec. 2004.

Manong with a guitar serenaded us some popular songs from classic 50's to present throughout the whole cruise. He even sang one Korean song for the Korean tourists, which we also enjoyed listening. A big warm of applause to manong! clap! clap! clap!


The ride ends near the Tontonan or Busay waterfalls (I'm not sure of the name) where several falls with cascading water provides a pleasant sensation.


The ride took us around 45 minutes. It was a relaxing experience for me.
