Another place to visit in Lake Sebu is their Tboli Museum. It shows the preserved culture of Tboli and the life they live.

After our zipline ride at the famous 7 waterfalls, our habal habal driver drove us here.

We we’re able to talk to some of the Tboli malong weavers and see it ourselves how they made it. It’s about three days to finish one malong and it costs around P1,000 pesos.

We’re not able to go to the exact place where we can see the Tboli  dreamweavers where they make Tnalak as it was already late afternoon and driver told us it’s not so near from where we are so we decided to head to the resort where we stayed for a night in Lake Sebu.

 

I will be posting on the next blog which resort we stayed in and why we chose this place.
