Cruising Romblon: An 8 Day Adventure Trip

Cruising Romblon Islands

It was yet another challenge for this hiker as I go out of my element and into an inter-island hopping adventure with PHILTOA, DOT Region 4-B, the provincial office of Romblon and 2GO Travel to endorse the archipelagic province of  Romblon with its  major islands of Sibuyan, Romblon, Tablas and San Jose.

“Cruising Romblon” was an 8 day tour which used the extensive Roll on, Roll Off (RORO) inter-island connection. It’s an advanced screening of sorts of the travel packages PHILTOA will feature in the “Sale ng Bayan” during the 27th Philippine Travel Mart on September 02-04, 2016. Isn’t that exciting?

Considered to be the biggest staging of the Philippine Travel Mart, the 26th edition last September 2015 occupied a total of 3,351 sq.m. exhibitors area with 370 booths participated in by 251 tourism related establishments. Halls 1-4 of the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City was once again the venue of the 26th Philippine Travel Mart 2016.

I’ve seen the itinerary and it was packed. How did we pull this off? We departed from Batangas port making an overnight travel to the island of Sibuyan and stayed there for 2 nights.

After 8 days, 4 hotels or accommodations, numerous meet and greet with the gracious and supportive local government officers, we had loads of fun, food and culture. It is indeed a spectacular experience of the Islands of Romblon and I would be remiss not to share these with you.
