You can reach Oslob from Dumaguete via Sibulan port. From Liloan port in Cebu, you can either ride the bus or rent a motorcycle (not advisable since it’s quite a bumpy ride). If you’re on a big group, renting a multicab would be best.

San Isidro Labrador Church – also called Lazi Church, was built in 1857 and the only church (that I have visited so far) that has well preserved wooden floor. This is the second best old church for me (my first is Tumauini Church in Isabela)

Siquijor

Siquijor province is part of Region VII or the Central Visayas Region. It is the 3rd smallest province in the Philippines and believed to be site for magic spells and enchantment.

Siquijor is accessible via Dumaguete port, an hour boat rides from Negros Oriental province. Upon arrival, there are several motorcycle, tricycle and multicab for rent. We opted to rent a tricycle that can fit up to 6 passengers for the price of P1,200 (P200 each) for a whole day tour.

Completing Central Visayas Region

Region VII or Central Visayas Region is composed of 4 provinces: Cebu, Bohol, Negros Oriental and Siquijor. I have been in Cebu and Bohol twice already, in 2009 as part of our honeymoon escapade (check budget here) and in 2011 with my family and my father’s relatives. This year, together with my colleagues, I was able to visit the other 2 provinces, Negros Oriental and Siquijor with Oslob Cebu as a bonus.
