Things I did in Marawi

I can’t write a 10 things to do in Marawi since I’m not an expert in that kind of posts but I will tell you some of the things I did in the Islamic City of Marawi.

  1. Had a picnic in MSU -There’s a golf course but I don’t think you can do any golf with people sitting everywhere

  2. Walked around Ayala Resort Hotel – They have a restaurant too but I wasn’t able to check out the food. The cottages here are so cute and very traditional. I’m not sure about the prices but this is one of the most convenient and safest accommodations in the area.

  3. Took pictures around Lake Lanao, the second largest lake in the Philippines – There’s a boat that leaves for the other side of the lake. The lake is so huge the other side isn’t visible.

    I can barely see the other side of the lake
  4. “Night out” in Banggolo Plaza – Yes they do have a place for night life but it isn’t your typical nightout. People there go skating. Rollerskating to be exact.
  5. Ate street food -to which I was surprised to learn they also have barbecue stalls selling chicken hotdog, chicken gizzards, intestines, etc.
  6. Ate Halo halo in Jeco’s -I haven’t sampled a lot of halo halo but so far, this was the best one I’ve ever had. Unlike some Halohalo that seem to be full of ice, Jeco’s Halohalo is creamy, has lots of ingredients and it has mango float! Of course I separated the mango float and ate it by itself. Seriously, it was good.

  7. Climbed Mt. Mupu – which I won’t recommend since my cousins told me a few people were kidnapped here more than 10 years ago

  8. Went around the city and the market – which is very near lake Lanao
  9. Ate Maranao cuisine (Sorry no pics)
  10. Visited Aga Khan Museum (we weren’t able to enter since it was closed. Note: They’re closed on Fridays and Saturdays)
