Before we boarded the boat for the river cruise, we were greeted by a number of elderly locals who began playing a vast repertoire of songs which almost sounded like traditional Cajun music – which, being along the muddy riverbanks of Loboc and all, conjured images of New Orleans, Louisiana, my second home.
The hour long river cruise consisted of an all-you-can-eat buffet, live music, and an abundance of stellar views along the Loboc River.
Later we made a brief stop and boarded a floating raft where a number of men, women, and children were playing music and singing local songs. Everyone aboard our boat were encouraged to join and participate in the festivities – for a tip, of course.
The Loboc River Cruise including the all-you-can-eat buffet, costs 400 Pesos (or $9 USD).
So cheap. So worth it.
