After dinner, proceed to the Loboc River, either in Loay town or at the Loboc jetty, to board a pumpboat that will take you downriver at a slow, leisurely pace.

Along the riverbanks, trees are festooned with the myriad lights of fireflies, some covering the entire foliage of the trees.

This natural phenomenon has long been a local sight but organized tours did not come about until 2005 when it was recognized as a unique, wondrous spectacle, especially for city dwellers.

During the migration season, you can even catch a glimpse of birds sleeping among the branches of the mangrove trees that line the river. Truly an awesome experience as only Mother Nature can present!
