Guimaras, Beyond the Mango Fame

April 15, 2018 Tsina 0 Comments

We were supposed to go and visit Isla de Gigantes, but the long travel made me change my mind. We went to Guimaras instead. We took the ferry from Bacolod to Iloilo for PhP285/pax. 
From the ferry terminal, we took a tricycle (an expensive one!) for PhP200 to Parola Wharf. We bought our ferry tickets going to Guimaras for only PhP14/pax. That was really cheap!

We decided to have a tricycle tour of Guimaras before we checked in. Since this was quite an impromptu trip, there was no available room in Raymen's Beach Resort, we checked in at Jannah Glycel Beach House instead which we booked in Traveloka. 

For the Guimaras tour, we visited quite a few locations. For our first stop, we went to the Smallest Plaza, this actually holds that distinction in the Guinness Book of World Records. Galing noh?
We went to the Guimaras Windmills after this one, because it is the farthest on all our places to visit. Apparently, Guimaras has windmills that provide renewable energy, which made me quite excited as I have not seen windmills before. Auhm, that's just another way of saying that I have not been to Ilocos. :P

After this, we went to the provincial capitol for photo ops. Mango is obviously what they're known for, noh? :P
We've gotten hungry, so we went to my favorite place in Guimaras, the Pit Stop! Sobrang sarap ng mango pizza! It was weirdly good, I will probably return for the mango pizza!

Of course, Guimaras tour wouldn't be complete without visiting a mango plantation, because you know Guimaras is the mango capital of the Philippines. 
The Trappist Monastery in Guimaras is run by monks. This is also part of our Guimaras tour. When we went here, it has been a quiet place, and we didn't actually see a lot of people. But it has been interesting to visit a monastery.
The last but definitely not the least was the visit to the Guisi Lighthouse, it's an 18th century lighthouse. It is located beside a beach. Imagine the sunset view noh? It was really nice!


Boyfriend's getting good at this noh? :P

We've been to a lot of places in Guimaras, the tricycle tour was a good decision. We saw the different sides of Guimaras from the mango plantation to windmills and old Spanish lighthouse. Plus point, our guide took wonderful photos of us. 

We stayed for two nights in Guimaras, spending the second night in Raymen's Beach Resort which we walked from Jannah Glycel Beach House. We were able to book it via Agoda. It was another day of beach chilling, because the boyfriend always wants a chill day on our trips. Beach it was!
