To rate my first river tubing experience, I have to say it was prodigious and exceptional. The rush of my blood felt like it synchronized with the thrilling waters of the animated river. The feeling of not knowing whether one will make it and pass through the slim opening of sandwiched massive river rocks was wildly addictive. If you’d ask me if I’m repeating such adventure, my answer would definitely be a loud YES!

 

  1. Boodle Meal – Lunch by the River / Php 249 per person
