“Experience getting to know Butuan City more by walking along at the longest boulevard in Southern Philippines. The historic Montilla Boulevard located in the downtown area is approximately 5 kilometers in length. So prepare your walking shoes and explore the local lifestyle of the country's ancient kingdom that transformed into a bustling city in the northeastern part of Mindanao island.”

Museum
“The National Museum of Butuan is a must-visit destination when in the city. This unique museum yielded tremendous archaeological finds of collectors' value. The most significant find were the prehistoric Balanghai or Butuan boats that date from 4th to 13th centuries A.D., just five kilometers from the city proper. The city of Butuan is the only place in the Philippines where you can find the ancient boats and learn about the ancient kingdom stories of the country to be able to understand more about the culture and heritage of the country.”

“Amontay is a beach resort built over the last few years. The beach is quite nice, though brown rather than white sand. There is a very nice childrens swimming pool and adult pool, though you have to pay seperately for these! Canoes and power boat things for rent. About 1 hour drive from Butuan, you need a taxi or own car.”

“Tuna Republik Butuan is a local restaurant that serves mostly tuna dishes. The 'homey' ambiance of Tuna Republik is even manifested in its dishes. Meals combined with fresh grilled, 'sashimi' style and barbequed tuna will always be the all-day favorites of local diners in the city. A must try. Also, the owner of the resto is a good friend of mine. Surely, our Airbnb guests will experience an extra dose of hospitality once they get to drop by at the place.”
