Sorsogon 2008

April 5, 2008

We spent a day and a half in Sorsogon. We went to the following places:

Donsol for the awesome Butanding interaction

The mysterious hidden beauty of Lake Bulusan
The San Benon Hot Springs in Irosin
Rizal Beach in Gubat 
The Barcelona Ruins

Donsol:  Whale Shark Capital

The Registration Place
The first step in your butanding experience. Registration, payment of P3,900 per boat, and to view a video about the gentle giants.

Diving In

Swimming to the Butanding
Our guide Jerry efficiently leads to right to the giant's head before he asks us to look in.

  1. Sorsogon is loaded with water attractions. I would love to swim with the Butandings.

  2. Sorsogon is one of the best place in PH, hope the government provide more budget for its development
