How to get there: Bantayan Island Cebu, Philippines

Bantayan Island 

Bantayan Island is said to be geographically standing in the center of Philippines. The island is considered one of the towns of Cebu and is located northwestern side of Cebu and in the northeastern part of Negros Occidental. 

How to get there: Cebu City-Bantayan Island

Terminal: Cebu North Bus Terminal
Ceres Bus fare air conditioned : 150 php Bus fare non-air conditioned: 132 php 
Travel time: 3-4 hours. 

At the Hagnaya Wharf you'll pay for the boat fare: 150 php and terminal fee: 10 php.

After our Gawad Kalinga Bayani Challenge we decided to roamed around the island. First we visited the City Hall and even entered the Mayor's office, that's all thanks to the Mayor's daughter who was kind enough to show us around. I'm very much empress with the Mayor's Approach to people, I saw this board while we bought "Danggit" and different kinds of dried fish, just a walking distance from the City Hall.The statement was encouraging the people to text and contact the Mayor when they have spotted any illegal doings around the area and for any concerns.

Bantayan's Fiesta is held every April that always falls on the Holy Week and they were already setting up stalls for the upcoming event. 

We roam around and found some key chains ,my friend bought a lot as a souvenir for her office mates so might as well have some key chains too.
