Visit Samar and its nearby attractions through an interactive virtual camping activity with this tour. You don’t need to leave the house to take part in this tour, as it comes with a Komuni-bag or a travel box which has camping materials, banig (a woven mat), salad ingredients, sisi (fermented rock oysters), sukang tuba (coconut vinegar), and other items inside. The box will be shipped to your home, and this tour is already inclusive of the shipping fee.
Samar is known for its natural attractions, including its caves and beaches. In fact, the province is home to Asia’s 2nd largest cave system, as well as Saob Cave, which is known as a weaving spot for the locals. You’ll visit these caves, as well as a couple of beaches and other historical landmarks in this virtual tour.
Your guide will begin with an opening activity before virtually accompanying you to your first stop, the Tacloban City Hall in Leyte. The city hall is also known as Kanhuraw, which is also the name of the hill where it can be found. Before heading to Samar, you’ll visit the San Juanico Bridge, which connects the province to Leyte.
Your first stop in Samar is Bacubac Beach, a quiet beach in the municipality of Basey. Before starting your virtual camping trip, your guide will lead you in meditation. A camp master will then teach you basic camping techniques.
Next, you’ll virtually explore Saob Cave. The cave itself is cool, which makes it the ideal place for banig weavers to work. You’ll then visit the Langon-Gobingob Caves in Calbiga, Asia’s 2nd largest cave system. Your last virtual destination is Basey Beach, where you can enjoy the beautiful views.
A nutritionist will teach you how to prepare healthy food while camping, which you can try to do with the ingredients from the Komuni-bag. You’ll end the tour with a virtual bonfire to complete the camping experience.
