Sightseeing in My City
I live in Cagayan de Oro City, the capital of the Province of Misamis Oriental, Philippines. This place has evolved from being a quiet and undeveloped city to one that is now booming with more people and more commercial establishments. I believe that the present scenario is a good thing because it brings many new malls, restaurants, parks, grocery stores, and the like.
Sightseeing in my city is fun not only because of the modern additions, but also because of the beaches, rivers, mountains, and caves. Although the beaches here can be dirty due to some people's careless garbage-throwing, the waters still possess nature's wonders. The rivers, on the other hand, are now more fun to check on because they have become excellent spots for whitewater rafting. Concurrently, the mountains are a sight to behold since they still have the attractive green color (which is soothing to the eyes) from afar. This green hue is actually the forests that are full of trees and plants. Lastly, the caves have been preserved somehow by the local government in such a way that their prehistoric beauty is still visible.
Cagayan de Oro City is a just small place, but it has a big potential to become one of this country's top places to visit. --ARV
