While buying the ferry ticket I met a nice Canadian / Filipina couple so I spent the morning with them “touring” the island via motorbike.

1. Lazi Convent

Special because it was built in 1887, a time when engineering technology and equipment was non-existent. It was completed in 1891.

Getting To Siquijor

The most common way, and the way I came, is to come from Dumaguette.

There are a number of different services all with different times and prices. I payed 100 and something php for the 15:30pm boat + 15php terminal fee.

They also post when the service does not run, e.g., 15:00pm service is not available on Mondays.
