One Fine Roadtrip Day

"Holiday Economics" of President GMA is something i always look forward to. This is about moving the actual holiday to Friday or to Monday if these holidays falls on the weekdays. This was put into law to boost domestic tourism and encourage more quality time among Filipino families and even friends. This blogger finds this system effective and surely beneficial.

When Independence Day Holiday (June 12) was moved to June 9, my friends and I excitedly planned for a Roadtrip. We called it One Fine Roadtrip. A road trip going to different towns, places, resorts, beaches and parks from the City of Davao to the Municipality of Lupon, Davao Oriental passing through the towns of Carmen, Panabo, Tagum, Maco, Mabini, Pantukan and Banaybanay.

The weather that day was indeed fine! The humid was just perfect. Our first stop was Madaum, part of Tagum City. We visited Lanikai (lighthouse) and the Barret Beach Resort. I haven't heard of these places only until i had visited them.

Our next stop was the town of Pantukan, a first class municipality of Compostela Valley. We stopped at Lawigan Beach Resort, Magnaga Beach Resort and Welborn Beach Resort. (pictures below)



Next stop was the Banaybanay, Davao Oriental, famous for its Banaybanay Rice. On our way, we stopped at Mary's Woods. A grotto atop a small hill. At the back of grotto was narrow plain that serve as a viewing deck overlooking the calm and serene beauty of the town's Bay. From atop, the water was really clear. We even saw corals from where we stood. It was beautiful. (pictures below)



The last stop was the Municipality of Lupon, Davao Oriental. It was around 2 pm when we got there and our little tummy was already complaining. Phillip was not a stranger to the place. Hence, brought us to a small beach resort in Lupon where we feasted on our "baon" from Ann's post bday celeb and pancit.

After lunch, we had a quick tour around the town. On our way back, we stopped at the highway where a beautiful place for picture taking was just perfect. Take a look at these.

After a while, we headed to Arancon Beach Resort. A one of a kind resort that awed us all. Different from what I've been to before. And it all seemed to us that it became the highlight of our One Fine Roadtrip Day. Why? The next post will answer.
