Campuestohan Highland Resort

Who said birthday wishes don't come true?! They do! Last month, I thought I'd never see this resort sooner than summer but well, well, well! Who would have thought that a little spontaneity and nice weather would get me here! FINALLY!

Campuestohan Highland Resort is located at the boundary of Talisay and Bacolod City. There are two routes on the way there. Here's their facebook page for more information.
