Misamis Oriental 2012 : Bukidnon (Camp Phillips and Dahilayan Adventure Park)

Series:
*Misamis Oriental 2012: Cagayan De Oro (1st Rafting Adventure)*
*Misamis Oriental 2012: Camiguin*

CDO-BUKIDNON-CAMIGUIN escapade! We booked last November 2011 of seat sale cost P11 in Zest Air. We got P 2,500 round trip all in for two persons. Lucky right? But last June 2012, a call center agent called up and informed me that our flight for CDO on September 2012 will be cancelled due to management responsibility and I can get a refund. Oh no! Good thing I had to booked in AirPhil on next day a promo sale also. It cost little bit of higher compared to Zest air and it's ok. Rather than to keep myself uptight thinking about that Zest air inconvenience! Duh! Months of preparing, I did a 5days 4 nights DIY itinerary for this trip, I'd read travel blogs and contacted personal recommended activities and tour organizer of bloggers. Together with my travel buddy, and boyfriend Yeng, fly fly fly to Mindanao! :)




Departure and board at NAIA T3 :)

After almost 2 hours, we arrived at CDO Teminal. When we checked out our baggage and look for the taxi, rain poured so heavy!!! :(








We rode on the taxi and drove us to our hotel. We got wet before we get in the taxi and when we arrived at the hotel, it's brown out :( We took a quick shower and after a few minutes, the power was resumed! Yey! Since it's almost 6:00 pm, we asked the receptionist where we can find the Butcher's Best Barbeque in town, she gave us direction. According to one travel blog, it's the best barbecue house in CDO and it was!!!! :) I don't have time to managed to take a picture because I'm so hungry!!!!hahahha! After of full packed dinner, we went back to hotel to sleep early for the next day adventure :)


We woke up early and prepare our things going to Bukidnon. The 1st Rafting company, organized our tour to Bukidnon and White Rafting adventure activity  for this day. They fetched us in front of our hotel and waited for other group for the Zipzone trip. We are 5 people in a Starex Van :)

It's almost 1 1/2 hour going to Bukidnon, we stoped over at Camp Phillips where in the Del Monte Pineapple Plantation was located. :)

We went back to van and head to Dahilayan Adventure Park :) They have 3 rides in Zipline cost P1,200 including the Rafting activity. The first two rides was just a typical zipline ride.. hahahaha! The third ride was the highlight. It's the Asia's longest zipline and it measures 860m ride!!! yay!!!
