It was planned to be a group of six. Until the day of the trip came and we ended to be just a trio. Hahaha! Nonetheless, we go! It was organized by my friend from the Graduate School, she planned this Siquijor and Negros Oriental trip few months in advance. We were so excited when the day of the trip came. Our last trip together was in Davao City last February and that was also the last time I saw them. Hehehe!
Since there is no direct flight to Siquijor from Manila, we booked a flight to Dumaguete, Negros Oriental where we would take a ferry to the island.
So, from the moment we landed in Dumaguete Airport, we took a tricycle that will bring us to the port. At first, we were being charged 150 pesos, but I was able to haggle it down to just 120 pesos. I guess that's a reasonable price... ^_^
It only took us about 15 minutes to reach the port. We walked towards the ticketing booth, bought tickets to Siquijor (PHP 160) and paid the terminal fee of 15 pesos.
It was around 9:00 AM and the sea is very calm. It was a comfortable ride. I even had a chance to take a nap as I didn't had enough sleep the previous night.
After about an hour, we finally reached the Mystical Island of Siquijor! And WOW! It is indeed beautiful.
From the port, you can already see patches of white sand beach! Urgh! I can't wait to explore the island!
This is part of my adventures in the provinces of Siquijor and Negros Oriental that happened last November 20-22, 2011 with my MBA friends, Clarice and Marvin. Siquijor is the 48th province on my list. Join us as we discover the majestic and enchanting “island of fire” that is distinctively Siquijor.
