in travel •  2 years ago 

This is it! My Genesis post of our travels that is made possible by CRYPTO, STEEMIT AND FREELANCING. For those who don't know me yet, I'm Cha Zapanta from a Sunny Country all year-round - PHILIPPINES, you can click here and get to know me. :) And Yes! I'm able to travel around Philippines and Europe with the help of CRYPTO and Steemit, click here on how it became possible. :)

SIARGAO, my favorite destination ever! Been there 4 times already and can't wait to go back next year and stay for 1 to 2 months next time. :) Why SIARGAO? Jamming Waves, Scenic Beaches, Endless road trip, Warm locals, Limitless Coconuts, Unforgettable seafood experience, reggae vibe and of course the beautiful skies I witness every night. Yes! This is why I love Siargao!

THE LIMITLESS COCONUTS - you can climb and get some for yourself after a dip of the marvelous Siargao beach.

So what you can do in Siargao? Here is a list:

  1. MAGPUPUNKO ROCK FORMATION - You can swim in the amazing rock pool resort located in Pilar, Siargao. Very crystal clear water with very beautiful creatures you can see underwater - you need a pair of gaggles for that :)

  2. BOARDWALK - Take a walk in Boardwalk at Cloud 9, General Luna where you can see surfers having fun with the waves:
  3. BUCAS GRANDE - rent a boat in Socorro (a nearby island of Siargao) that will take you to the islands of Bucas Grande and see the emerald water that magnifies its beauty:

    And see the famous rock formed - horse feet while boating in the island:

    Or stop by the jellyfish sanctuary and be mesmerized:

    Or take a tour on one of the caves of bucas grande where your only way out is to jump from a cliff:

    I don't wanna go back so I took a leap of faith and jumped after almost an hour (haha! it wasn't really high but we always have fears inside us - and mine is HEIGHTS):

  4. ISLAND COCKFIGHT - after a long road trip, you can stop by this small stadium in town and watch the very intense cockfight and hear the locals shouting and betting on each cocks:

  5. CHILL - whether in your own hotel room watching the sunset or drinking with the locals while listening to the town's favorite reggae vibe:

And of course, the thing that you should not miss, is to eat SEAFOOD! - Very delicious dish bought for only 4 EUR! Of course you need to haggle for the price! :)
