ILIGAN CITY | Tourism Triangle In a Day Plan

You didn’t not know it, did you? That Iligan City has a Tourism Triangle, and you’ve went to these tourist spots but you didn’t know that they are geographically located in angles of each other making an imaginary triangle shape.
 I, too, for some time, until I was told of it — made me want to visit them again. Iligan City Tourism Office has called it at that, The Tourism Triangle of Iligan City. And I am bound to visit them in one day, with fellow bloggers, to show you that how to make your one day Iligan City visit —SUPER SULIT!

WHAT TO WEAR:

+Cotton Shirt & Shorts/Pants
+Backpack, to throw in all the stuff you plan to bring, or any bag that fits you’re outfit..^^

WHAT TO BRING:
+Cameras and other gadgets I guess
+Bottled Water
+Packed Lunch; some extra food to last you the whole day
+Extra Shirt/Shorts, Swimsuit, just incase we have time to take the Tinago Falls dip!
+Small Towel/Scarf
+Umbrella if it gets too hot
+Medicine/s
+Emergency Kit and other MUST bring stuff
+Sabay people, who are up for the trip and who are just as excited as you are.

EXPECTED THINGS TO DO:
Tour the destinations listed, and hopefully stop by Maze Park and Macapagal Rest House along the way. We will be travelling on the road most of the time and will only trek down the ravine when we visit the Tinago Falls. When doing the 1Day Iligan City Visit, it would be advisable to have a vehicle as your service, it will lessen the travel time by a fraction, I guess. And then there are rides and experiences that is offered and that I may take. Hmmmmmmm… Drop me a line should there be anything you want me to check out for you while I’m at these places..^^

WHAT I”M Soooooo LOOKING FORWARD TO:
Taking on the free-sprited side! Fears, please don’t act up now. LOL
1] Taking a jump at Tinago Falls water basin! I’ve always swam at Tinago Falls, my ultimate wishlist is to climb on the rock wall surfaces for a jump off point into the water. I’ve seen locals and brave hearts do that. But I have to mentally psyche myself for that — plus, I am not a strong swimmer. Sigh. Any strong and good swimmers out there? Can you wait for me in the water basin and pull me up for air after my jump? LOL!
2] Visit the Paradise Park and try the Bungee Trampoline at Paradise Resort. I’ve seen videos of how it is done, and I was afraid I might not get control over it, until i saw this Bungee Trampoline Video, the kids made it look easier than the adults did doing multiple flips. If a kid could do that, I think I can, too! But I think I need a strong abdominal core to do flips, don’t I? Hmmmm…. It would be my first visit to the park with it’s amenities ready for the visitors, the last time I was there was the construction phase and I was not able to experience the services that they now offer. So, I am up for that.

    Prior to my first visit to Iligan and having never been to your part of the world before I was not totally sure what I would find there. I spent 2 years learning about Iligan by information posted on the internet, including the formation of an entourage made up of some of the finest Iliganons I could find. After all, who knows Iligan better than those that live there. They knew the sights, the time it would take to visit and enjoy them and how to get to them.

    On the day of the big tour, I had arranged to charter a jeepney for the day and I was surprised at how reasonable of a cost this could be done for, especially as compared to hiring something similar to that here in the USA. As we toured many of the major sites on that day, the jeepney and driver was there for us to take us to the next place. I would suggest to foriegn visitors, like myself, if you plan on going with your own group to look into chartering a Jeepney and a Driver. It can be convienient, fun, and enable you to go to more places in one day.

    For me, there are so many things I wanted to see and do while visiting Iligan it could never be accomplished in a one day or even a one or two week visit. I have been back again several times since that first and most memorable visit to Iligan City.

    I believe I did the " Tourism Triangle " you have so well described here, on the day I hired the jeepney, loaded it with Iliganon friends with myself in the front passenger seat for maximum visibility and enjoyment.

    Thanks for bringing back so many memories of that day in your article here about the " Tourism Triangle " .

    Simply Amazing !

  • Hello Bob New York,

    I heard some people say that they've been to Iligan but it meant they only went to stop by one place.. When there's so much more to see and visit.. Tourism Triangle is stratigic in it's location given that they are in one direction and within near proximity of each other.. I like the idea of hiring a jeepney — maybe i'll do the same when my cousins come by for a visit this September..

    I will be posting blogs about this whole day plan — there's new parks for you to enjoy and maybe visit on your next visit at Iligan City..

    Thank you for the email you sent via IBS email add.. Everyone was happy to know that our efforts were appreciated.. I have a post about the Google Mapping we did at my personal blog, aCoFFeeSToRYToTeLL [http://acoffeestorytotell.blogspot.com/]..

    You might also like the posts there about Iligan City events that I've attended and some other stuff.. you can access the recent posts from my personal blog at the right side of this blog site, and vice versa on the other blog..

    Thanks Bob

    Best Regards, Lai
