This evening tour begins with a gourmet organic dinner at the Bee Farm Restaurant in Panglao Island. After dinner, proceed to Abatan River to board a pumpboat that will take you downriver at a slow, leisurely pace. Along the riverbanks, trees are festooned with the myriad lights of fireflies, some covering the entire foliage of the trees. This natural phenomenon has long been a local sight but organized tours did not come about until 2005 when it was recognized as a unique, wondrous spectacle, especially for city dwellers.
During the migration season, you can even catch a glimpse of birds sleeping among the branches of the mangrove trees that line the river. This is truly an awesome experience that only Mother Nature can present.
