the farthest town that i reached in Cebu's northern area is the town of Carmen. so this time i decided to visit an island in the far northern part of Cebu, the island of Bantayan. i only see it in the pictures and it really entices me.so this year, i was lucky enough because we had a conference in Cebu which gave me the chance to extend my stay and visit this island. we took the regular bus at the Cebu North Bus Terminal. the bus left around 7:35am. the travel was not tiring because we get to see small towns on one side and the coastline on the other side. you get to see small beach resorts. after an hour ride, we had our first stop at the Hillside terminal for a 15-minute break.after the stop over, we noticed that we are now crossing the mountainous area of Cebu. from beach, the view shifted to a scenic greeny hills. the mountains provides fresh air in this area making it even more soothing to travel and the road was well maintained. we traveled for about an hour with such view and arrived on our next short stop over on the town of Bogo at around 10:05am. then immediately traveled for our final 20minute road trip to Hagnaya port, where the ferry that will take us to the island docks. we arrived at the Hagnaya port at 10:25am and guess how much it cost us for the 3hour-trip of scenic coastlines and hills from Cebu city to Hagnaya port. P55! yes just P55 or roughly $1.25.
next post will be our ferry trip to Bantayan island.
