A few minutes of driving from the Pink Mosque of Maguindanao del Sur, we reached the Blue Lagoon in Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao del Norte.
The Blue Lagoon
Maguindanao del Norte has its own version of the deep and enchanting blue lagoon. Some people say that this is Maguindanao del Norte’s version of the Hinatuan Enchanted River of Surigao Del Sur.
It’s up to you to compare. To me, they are both bodies of water. LOL.
Even though the weather was hot and we had yet to get a decent bath (remember, we didn’t bathe since yesterday; read Chapter 1 – Sultan Kudarat), we did not dive to experience the fresh blue water of lagoon.
We just settled for a quick photo ops and watched some locals enjoying and cooling off from the heat as our van was parked at the roadside near the lagoon.
Some of my new friends were ready for the photo ops. They have worn their OOTD to match the lagoon.
Masjid Al-Nasser Abpi also known as The White Mosque
The White Mosque was closed when we arrived in the place. This was why we settled to get some photos only outside and were not able to see the inside of the mosque.
People's Palace in Cotabato City
Not much to say here. We just made a quick photo ops as we wanted to spend more time at the Grand Mosque which to me was the highlight of our day 2 trip.
Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mosque, also known as The Grand Mosque
The Grand Mosque of Cotabato City was the most beautiful place I visited in day 2 (no offense to other places I visited).
The Grand Mosque is huge, elegant and stunning! To make our visit more memorable, we rented (I actually bought as there was no abaya that would fit me) an abaya.
What to do if you are in this beautiful place? Get some photos and appreciate the beauty of the structure.
We concluded our Day 2 tour with a good bath. Yey! Finally!
Off to North Cotabato (next chapter).
