Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm guessing that this is the first and only calesa ride on the beach in the Philippines! You can find this in Bagasbas, a surfing mecca in Daet, Camarines Norte.
(I also think the the horse is also enjoying the water and the cool breeze.)
I love Bagasbas for surfing but this "Carjuahe Ride" took my heart away. And you can see my happiness in this video:
I can imagine myself going back there just to chill and well, maybe tag along a date, too. Hahaha.
Now, is it expensive? NO.
Romantic? Oh yeah. DEFINITELY.
Pay only Php 100 for a 30-minute ride as you enjoy the unique experience with your (special) friend or family.
Sunset will be sweeter, and for a hopeless romantic like me, this is perfect for a cheesy overload date.
Needless to say, this really made my weekend. We were driving around Daet and proceeded to Bagasbas Beach when I spotted this kalesa from afar. Without any hesitation, I asked the driver to stop so I can go after the carriage.
(Special thanks to Mayor Tito Sarion and to his bubbly son Taichi for being my tour companions!)
