Alona Golden Palm Resort: Our Home in Bohol


I took a chance on this small 7 room, boutique resort house for our family vacation in Bohol to celebrate my husband's 21st birthday (lol!!!).  And I am happy I did. My husband who was initially pessimistic, was obviously delighted I choosed to book there!

 
The garden was very well kept. The room and bath that we stayed in was equally clean. The pool was surprisingly heated to luke warm, perfect for kiddos...





The resort is located about 2 minutes walk from the beach, which makes it a perfect place to relax away from the busy and noisy Alona beach front.

It was much safer inside the resort too as it was gated, well lighted and guarded. It was okay to just leave the kids wandering and running about, while I sip into my delicious fresh mango shake.

We got a superior deluxe room at the ground floor, which was perfect since it was right in front of the pool.




(we had 2 queen size beds, a mini bar, free daily coffee and tea and very powerful 2hp air-conditioning unit - freezing!!!)

The resort owns 3 well trained dogs and my youngest grew a fonding of Pacquioa, the black pit bull. He literally begged to take it back home to Manila with us.

The staff were nice and accommodating. They readily attended to my request of cake and arranged for special in-room massage for my husband.  

They gave him cake while singing a happy birthday. Sweet!!!

Day 4 in Seoul (A Private Tour : Seoul ~ Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island)

Our Day 4 in South Korea was in the outskirt of Seoul ~ Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do.  As it was a little difficult to reach I contacted, "This is Korea" Tours to customize a private tour for my family.

Andy, our Tour Specialist (TS) cum driver and photographer picked us up at the Metro Hotel at 11am as agreed.  It was an easy ride on board a 7-seater limousine van for our family of 4. 

Our tour was personalized based on what we wanted so long as the entire trip is all within the 10 hours we've commissioned.  For our trip, we've decided on Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island.



SANJEONG LAKE

Sanjeong Lake is situated between Myeongseongsan and Mangbongsan Mountain.  Its name means "as clear as a mountain well". It was built in 1925 as a reservoir to supply to farmlands in Pocheon.


Reached Sanjeong Lake Park early afternoon ~ perfect weather for a cup of hot coffee 

Lots of things to do in the lake park.  We took a paddle boat and walked the lake promenade.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Kingdom Club

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

Check here our Visit to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea last 2016 >>> Tokyo Disneyland  and >>> Tokyo Disney Sea

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.

Day 2 in Seoul - Part I (War Memorial of Korea, Grevin Wax Museum and the funny Nanta Show)

"Joh-eun achim (Good Morning) Seoul"
Our Day 2 in Seoul is a DIY using Seoul's public transportation. 
After a hearty complimentary breakfast at Metro Hotel, we made our way to Myeongdong Station and headed to the first item in our itinerary.

The War Memorial of Korea
The museum is easily accessible via Subway Line 4 through Samgakji Station, Exit 12.


If you have limited time to tour Seoul and want to see at least one of the city's museums, I highly recommend visiting the War Memorial.  We also visited the National Museum of Korea and liked the War Memorial better.
We spent hours touring the Outdoor Exhibition Area alone. The warships and aircrafts exhibition is truly remarkable. This particular ship is a replica of the Korean Naval Vessel PKM 357, which was involved in bloody naval battle between North and South Korea in 2002.
