Travel Vlog : Let's go to Negros Oriental

Hey guys. I'll do a major throwback about my trip to Negros Oriental. I've decided to make a travel vlog to document my experiences there. Let's go and explore these places together. First, I'll showcase Pulangbato waterfalls, Red Rock Hotspring Resort, then go to Twin Lakes Balinsasayao. 

My Travel Vlog : Let's go to Negros Oriental 

Some information 
Pulangbato falls  literally means red rocks. It's located in the Ocoy valley, town of Valencia, Negros Oriental. It takes 30 - 40 minutes away from Dumaguete. The place got its name from the reddish color of the rocks found everywhere in the waterfalls. The color of the rocks get its natural color from Mt. Talinis, an active volcano. By the way, Valencia is known for its geothermal sources of energy like those red rocks somehow.

If there's a volcano, then expectedly there should be some hot spring resort like the RED ROCK HOTSPRING resort just found nearby. These waters here contain powerful ions, minerals and radioactive gases. All these have healing benefits to the body.

Address: Red river Valley resort, Brgy. Malabo, Valencia, Negros Oriental
Entrance : P 20

Address : Caidiocan, Valencia, 6215, Negros Oriental
Phone # : 0916 451 0113

Next, TWIN LAKES BALINSASAYAO. This is located in the town of Sibulan, Negros Oriental. It usually takes less than an hour from Dumaguete City. It is a perfect getaway if you're looking for some real fun and adventure. Just the perfect escape from the city itself.

1. Take a tricycle. Tell the driver that your destination is the terminal of the jeep / bus going to SAN JOSE.
2. From there, tell the driver that you need to drop off the junction going to Lake Balinsasayao. Your key point is that this area is after you pass by the Sibulan proper and just remind the driver once again.
3. After you get off, it will be an uphill climb.
4. No need to worry because there are many motorcycles waiting 
( habal-habal in our dialect) for hire. Hire a motorcycle going up to the twin lakes. 
5. Make some arrangement with the driver. In our case, we paid P 300 / person including waiting time for 3 hours and two-way route already.
**Prices may vary according to how you negotiate with the driver.
Twin Lakes Balinsasayao RATES
Entrance fee - P10 / person and P30 / car
Umbrella cottage - P 100 / day (donation only for those who will not eat)
Big bangka (boat) - P 250 / hour up to 7 pax
Kayak - P 100 / hour

 ** Prices may change without prior notice.

I guess that's pretty much it. It was fun  writing about this.  So guys, if you are in Dumaguete, plan a side trip and go to this place. It's a good location to experience ZEN and be ONE with nature. Till next time. See you in my next travel destination.
