Day Tour Bohol Part 3: Loboc Floating Restaurant, Blood Compact Site

After the buying souvenir items from the Sevilla Souvenir Shop at the Hanging Bridge, we proceeded to the Loboc River Floating Restaurants.

Loboc River Floating Restaurants

There are four restaurants to choose from, each of them has something different to offer. In our case, we chose the first one, the Riverwatch Floating Restaurant. Apart from the fact we thought the menu suits our taste, we also managed to get a substantial discount from them. The typical price of the buffet is 300 pesos and there's an entrance fee of 100 pesos. All in all, without any discount of whatsoever, you will spend 400 pesos for the cruising buffet meal.

As expected, the buffet meal was delicious. There's also a live music performance while you are eating and occasionally, the boat will stop at stations where there's a floating stage at the shore where there are people performing either a native dance and/or a song.

The Riverwatch Floating Resturant has plenty of food selections. During our stay they prepared grilled fish (Tuna), Pancit, Chopsuey (mixed vegetables), squid, fried chicken and many other typical Filipino dishes. They also have sliced fruits such as pineapple and and watermelon.

Python, Ostrich, Flying Lemur in the Mini-zoo

Our next stop after the lunch in Loboc River Floating Resto was the mini-zoo (We skipped the zip-line portion since none of us wants to try it).

The mini-zoo features a huge python, Iguana (chameleon), Ostrich, Flying Lemur and many others. We didn't stay long in the zoo and we left immediately after we took several pictures.

Baclayon Church and the Blood Compact Statue

Our next stop is the old church in the town of Baclayon. Again, we didn't stay there for long mostly due to the hot sunny after-lunch weather. It seems that most of us wants to sleep inside our rented van. So after a few shots of the place, we left for our next stop, the Blood Compact Statue in Tagbilaran City.

The Blood Compact Statue commemorates the treaty by blood (Sandugo) between the spanish conqueror Miguel López de Legazpi and Bohol Chieftain Datu Sikatuna in the year 1565. The sculpture was made by a Bohol native National Artist, Napoleon Abueva.

We took several pictures of the statue and as expected, we took our favorite shot - a jump-shot. :-)

Going Back to Tubigon, then to Cebu


After the Blood Compact Site, we rushed back to Tubigon Port to catch the 4PM MV Starcraft ride.

Before stepping into the fast-craft, I look back at Bohol for the last time and a curious idea came to me - I'm gonna come back again to this place!
