Affordable stay near Oslob Whale Shark Site

Cebu might be famous for its new attractions – malls, beaches, parks, hotels, and schools – but don’t let that fool you. Cebu is loaded with tourist attractions in her provinces too! North or south, wherever you go, she sure has something to offer, and Oslob is not an exception.

Home to the world-famous Whale Shark Watching and Tumalog Falls, Oslob is a must-visit when you’re in Cebu. It is a hub of several water and trekking activities so, staying for only a day won’t suffice. If you’re a budget traveler or someone who prefers comfort and convenience, RedDoorz @ Oslob Whale Shark Watching Area should be at the top of your list.

CONVENIENCE IS THE KEY

Their accommodation is not only suitable for the pre-whale shark watching because having it located in front of the activity area, you can immediately rinse off after the enjoyment of basking in the sun and playing underwater.

They have affordable meals served on their restaurant, and a strong Wi-Fi connection. Therefore, your friends and followers who are in the city wouldn’t really miss your whereabouts.

CALM AND PEACEFUL

What’s more impressive? The calm and peace the room offers. I personally wasn’t expecting a serene sleep considering that it was situated along the highway, but I had, in fact, a great one! So, if you’re someone who also prefers peace and solace after a tiring day, RedDoorz @ Oslob Whale Shark Watching Area is definitely the place to be.
