It isn’t the first time that we did Glamping. But, when we heard there is glamping spot in Siquijor, instantaneously, we knew we have to experience it.
This guide unveils GLAMPING SIQUIJOR, the perfect place to get yourselves at when traveling to the province of Siquijor.
A day tour visit in Siquijor is somehow short especially when you really want to experience everything from food, its tourist destinations and the everlasting excitement for sunset and sunrise scenes. If you have the time to stay for two days or three, spend a night here in Glamping Siquijor.
This place offers an alfresco vibe perfect for travelers. Surrounded by tall palm trees and unobstructed view of the beach, you won’t regret anything here. Each glamping tent has their own sets of chairs and tables at front where you can nonchalantly chat with your travel buddies. Add a few super cold bottle of beers? Perfect!
Inside the tent is spacious with super-sized bed with enough ventilation and supply of electricity to power up your gears and gadgets.
Walk around and you will find their hanging hammocks, play beach volleyball or make friends on the common area at night when they lit the fire for some bonfire!
