Adventures have always been part of my travels. Zip lining, island hopping, chasing waterfalls and mountaineering are just some of the activities I love doing most. Aside from the pristine white sand beaches, extravagant festivals and good food, the Visayas also offers adventurous and exciting activities that shouldn't be missed by brave souls looking for a thrilling and exhilarating adventure.
Here are some of my recommended adventures in the Visayas:
1. Sky Experience Adventure at Regency Hotel in Cebu
When in Cebu City, one should never fail to try the country's first sky attraction, the Skywalk Extreme at the Crown Regency Hotel & Towers. On the hotel's 37th floor is the SkyWalk Extreme where you will walk around the platform built outside the building and get a very nice view of the whole city. Join our adventure here.

Canigao island is secluded; nature lovers and adventure seekers will really have a good time here just enjoying the sand, the sun and the beach.
