For the last few months, you may seem to notice these large colorful buses of Gloria’s Fantasyland in Cagayan de Oro City. They usually park near Limketkai Complex.
Gloria’s Fantasyland is Mindanao’s version of Disneyland (at a much smaller scale) located at the heart of historic Dapitan City. It is also owned by the Jalosjos Family of the famed Dakak Resort. Prior to these packaged tours, these buses just ply the Dakak-Gloria’s Fantasyland route and vice-versa.
The presence of these buses is brought about by the P999 budget packaged tours which include an overnight stay at Dakak, all rides free at Gloria’s Fantasyland, Dapitan historical tour and the free bus transfers from Cagayan de Oro City and other selected destinations as shown below. The package requires a minimum of 50 persons in order to avail of such.
Some of my friends have already availed of this packaged tour. This works for family reunions, class reunions, school breaks and other long vacations. You can even schedule it on a weekend… the photos above were taken during the recent weeklong city fiesta celebration. When not in transit, these buses have their garage in Kauswagan, along the 3rd Bridge Access Road going to Puntod-Kauswagan Bridge.
Just look below for more info and simply dial or visit their websites as shown.
This just shows the strategic location of Cagayan de Oro City as a major jump off point to other destinations in Mindanao.
