MARAWI CITY TRAVEL GUIDE | Transportation & How Get There Directions

MARAWI CITY TRAVEL GUIDE | Transportation & How Get There Directions 01

I heard a lot of stories about Marawi City. Some good. Some bad. Some really bad. Twenty-something years old  already, I came to face my fears of the roads.  I have to be honest, Marawi City was one of it. I have to be frank in saying that maybe it is because I feared you from the stories I’ve heard. Those, and the nagging thought that maybe I might visit you in an unfortunate circumstance during, what we would call —  “isolated incidence”. And brush it off with “Just your random incident with the rebels, or of other kind”, like lint on a sleeve of an expensive shirt. I would not want that. Not for me, or for anyone else.

Twice I visited the city now. And twice it never failed to teach me that difference, and acceptance is a married concept. Maybe it’s that. Maybe that is what I am now betting on. That there will always be difference that makes a place unique to it’s own, and I have to accept that. Marawi City is beautiful, you know. It’s beautiful — its people, those streets, and some run down buildings, brightly colored mosque, and the richness of its culture, and tradition. I like it just like that. It had me when it taught me what Bulos Kano meant.
