This is not a huge feature on Tabuelan and their plaza. Not really. But I just want to let everyone know how gorgeous the new (and improved) Tabuelan Plaza is.
So, okay, honestly, I’m not even sure how ‘new’ this is because I don’t travel to Tabuelan very often (aside from the fact that I’ve actually never been to their plaza. Hehe) But I’m pretty sure that this wasn’t how it looked like in the the recent past. So, for those of you who are also total Tabuelan (new) plaza ‘noobs,’ here are some shots that I took during one of my usual provincial rides.
My stop was quick but I’d say it was memorable as this was my very first time in this specific area of Tabuelan. So, here goes!
Initially, this was my intended pit stop. I had to take a quick break from all the driving because my butt was starting to hurt. When I saw this beautiful spot (which leads straight to the town of San Remigio,) I knew that I had to take a couple of photos. After taking photos, however, I realized that there were no sari-sari stores nearby where I could buy some snacks. And that’s when I looked on the other side of the highway. There, I saw for the first time the river-side plaza of Tabuelan. (If you watch the video below and pause at 0:14, you will see where I stopped and took this photo – near the very center of the frame.)
I got really curious (and hungry,) so I got on my bike and looked for the plaza. Along the way, I saw what seemed like the local merkado as well as several local stores. Great!
Finally, I saw the Tabuelan Terminal. It looked a lot better than most Cebu provincial terminals.
And right next to it is the Tabuelan Plaza.
The plaza is sitting right next to a big body of water. And what makes the plaza more beautiful, despite the fact that it is pretty simple, is that it is very clean and obviously very well-maintained.
This promenade is perfect for late afternoon chats or snacks. What a wonderful view!
View of the Tabuelan River. Okay, so I’m not sure if this is really called Tabuelan River. But you know what I’m trying to say. 🙂
Hashtag Tabuelan. How cool!
In the middle of the park is a kiosk where different kinds of activities are held. On this specific day, they’re preparing for a huge disko!
And the LGU now offers an exciting new experience to their visitors. Patterned after the popular floating restaurants of Bohol, Tabuelan now has boat restaurants that go up and down the river as guests enjoy their meal onboard.
Pick-up point for floating restaurant-bound guests. Lovely!
Of course, a quick selfie with the hashtag before proceeding to my next destination.
Here is a video of the Tabuela Floating Restaurant. Also, to give you a bird’s eye view of the river that is visible in my photos.
