Conquering Acrophobia in Cagayan

One of the best trip that I had happened in Cagayan De Oro. This is another unplanned trip that we had with my friends that we considered very fun and exciting. This is one of those moments when you're just talking and then out of the blue you just want to do something nerve-racking or maybe death defying stuff. So, me and my two girl friends booked a flight to Cagayan De Oro one weekend. Without any itinerary, we even don't know where to sleep or stay. All we have is our backpack and then things that we need for a 3 days 2 nights stay in Cagayan.
When we arrived at the Lumbia Airport in Cagaya, the very first cab driver approached us and asked if we need a ride. We then asked Manong Driver to take us to the nearest hotel in town or maybe the best hotel he can suggest. He brought us to VIP Hotel in Cagayan De Oro which is a very nice hotel for "travellers" like us. 
Just a brief background about the city, it is dubbed as the "City of Golden Friendship" (Dakbayan sa Bulawanong Panaghigala-ay in Cebuano) which is evident because people in Cagayan are hospitable and very friendly. It lies along the northern coastline of the island of Mindanao in the country's southern portion. Cagayan de Oro is considered as the melting pot in Mindanao.
What to do when in Cagayan?
Our first day was unforgettable. We went to Dahilayan Nature and Adventure Park. The best way to reach that place is to hire a cab for 2000/day tour (or you can make "tawad").

You can do a lot of stuff in Dahilayan. But the first thing you should try is the longest Zipline in Asia. This is actually my first time and I'm proud I conquered my fear of heights in Dahilayan.

You might want to try the Zorbit. Nakakahilo nga lang pero masaya.

And when in Cagayan De Oro, never dare to miss this one.

Cool isn't it?
