Touring Butuan City

We were fetched by Tito Daniel at the airport and enthusiastically toured us around Butuan. But due to the cancellation of our flight to Davao (thus we’re required riding the bus on the same day); we only visited few tourist spots in Butuan City:

Balangay Shrine – It is where the excavated balangay boats are housed. Balangay boats are huge wooden vessels used by ancient people dating 320AD.


Since it was a Sunday, the museum was close so we just took some photos of the facade.


Provincial Capitol – is also located in Butuan City. This vast and tidy capitol was built in 1951. Here is where my Tito is working =)


Banza Church Ruins – quite a few distance from the city proper. The ruins beside the mesmerizing view of the river, was built in 1600.


This was also my Tito’s first time to visit the place.
