Cebu Teambuilding Services Arranges Group Outing for Laguna Technopark Environmental Management Group

Satisfied with the service that Cebu Teambuilding Services have provided for them the past year, Laguna Technopark Environmental Management Group (LTEMG) again engaged the services of Cebu Teambuilding Services this year for their lakbay-aral and team bonding trip to the Central Visayas provinces of Bohol and Cebu. LTEMG is an association of environmental and safety officers of locators at the Laguna Technopark, the largest export processing zone in the country.

The group touched down at the Mactan Cebu International Airport in the early morning of April 9, 2015 and proceeded directly to the port of Cebu where they boarded the 8:45 a.m. SuperCat fast ferry trip bound for Tagbilaran City in Bohol, Philippines where a full schedule awaited them.

Day 1

Lunch at Ati-Atihan Restaurant

Upon arrival at Tagbilaran City, the group headed straight to Ati-Atihan Restaurant for lunch. Chicken Inasal, Pancit Canton, and Kinilaw na Isda were the main dishes served. After lunch, we then proceeded to Maribojoc town.

Binhi sa Panginabuhian Demo Farm & Training Center

The first official stop in the lakbay-aral was at the Binhi sa Panginabuhian Demo Farm and Training Center in Barangay Bayacabac, Maribojoc town where the group learned about how organic farming and livestock raising helped alleviate the poverty incidence in Maribojoc town. Even the good mayor Jun Evasco came by to meet the group and did part of the briefing himself.

La Veranda Beach Resort

After an exhausting tour at the Maribojoc town's organic demo farm under the heat of the scorching summer sun, the group headed to the La Veranda Beach Resort in Catarman, Dauis, Panglao Island, Bohol where they will be staying for the night. The party was too tired to do any of the planned team building activities. Instead, everyone opted for some rest and some just lounged at the bar and restaurant having a few drinks and chitchat with their friends. Dinner was served at around 6 o'clock while a band played music to entertain the guests.

Alona Beach

Later in the night, a small portion of the group ventured into famous Alona Beach in Panglao town. While April 9 was a national holiday, the crowd was still not as huge as it is on weekends. Nevertheless, the mostly male group settled for a few beers and made the most of the evening chatting and joking around with their friends, old and new.

Day 2

Bohol Countryside Tour

Day 2 of the itinerary was dedicated largely to the Bohol Countryside Tour with stops at Bohol's famed Chocolate Hills in Carmen town, souvenir shopping at Aproniana Gift and Souvenir Shop in Baclayon town, tree planting at the Bohol Biodiversity Center at the Bohol Island State University Bilar Campus, the Habitat Butterfly Sanctuary in Bilar town, the Tarsier Conservation Center in Loboc town, and lunch while on a river tour at the Rio Verde Floating Restaurant in Loay town.

Aproniana Gift and Souvenir Shop

The first stop on the countryside tour was at the Aproniana Gift and Souvenir Shop in Baclayon, Bohol where tour participants bought some pasalubong for friends and family as souvenirs to show for their Bohol visit.

Bohol Biodiversity Center

After some pasalubong and souvenir shopping, our bus headed for the Bilar campus of Bohol Island State University where one can find the Bohol Biodiversity Complex. The main feature at the BBC was tree planting.

Chocolate Hills

When in Bohol, Chocolate Hills of course. Who goes to Bohol and not visit the Chocolate Hills? They surely did not want to be 'that' group.

Habitat Butterfly Sanctuary and Loboc Tarsier Conservation Center

After Chocolate Hills, the group stopped by the Habitat Butterfly Sanctuary in Bilar town and the Loboc Tarsier Conservation in Loboc town before proceeding to the Rio Verde Floating Restaurant in Loay town for late lunch.

Rio Verde Floating Restaurant

The group was already hungry when we finally had lunch at past 2 o'clock in the afternoon at the Rio Verde Floating Restaurant in Loay town. We had a sumptuous meal of breaded crawfish, lechon kawali, sweet and sour fish, pork barbecue, fried chicken, crabs, and a lot more while we toured along the Loay-Loboc River.

The river tour included a stop at the Ati tribe settlement along the banks of the river for some photo opportunities.

Day 3


Right after the Bohol Countryside Tour, the LTEMG pack headed back to Cebu City aboard SuperCat. The group left Tagbilaran City Port at 5:25 p.m. and arrived at the Port of Cebu a little past 7 o'clock where a Tim Transport bus was waiting to take them to their hotel at Escario Central, where they will also have dinner at Zubuchon. Cebu Teambuilding Services managing consultant Thadz Engaling arranged some tour and recreational activities for the group while they stayed for a night in Cebu before going back to Laguna. On the night of April 10, Thadz accompanied some of the tour participants to some of the party joints in Cebu City. On April 11, 4 vans were arranged to ferry tour participants to places of interest around Metro Cebu. They flew out of Cebu on the same day.


We'd like to thank Nino Riel Tolentino, Kirk Patrick Castro, Clint Eduard Fuentes, and Nathan Engaling for making this project successful. We look forward to working with you again soon fellows!
