Visiting Puntan Dos Amantes (Two Lovers Point), Not Once But Twice !!!

Part 1

The next place that I visited in Guam during my second day is totally famous tourist spot in the island because of its legendary story that surrounds it and because of its great location that offers amazing lookout viewpoint of scenery of Tumon Bay, other parts of the island and even Philippine Sea.

After visiting Hagatna, I returned to Tumon area. From Tumon Sands Plaza, I walked towards T Galleria by DFS mall where the shuttle for Two Lovers Point terminal is located. I bought a ticket for $10 combining the shuttle fare and entrance fee at the park. The shuttle bus are not typical bus because it’s a trolley, semi-open trolley where you enjoy outside view while traveling back and forth from Tumon to Two Lovers Point, so beware during summer as the sun rays can hit you directly while inside the shuttle. The shuttle route also includes a drop-off and pick-up at Micronesia Mall only if the shuttle goes to Two Lovers Point Route. It does not stop at the mall when it goes to Tumon Route.

When we reached the place, I got off the shuttle, I saw the famous park. At the middle, the prominent statue of two lovers stands which shows the part of the legend story where they tied their hair together before they jumped-off the cliff. It is not unusual, that many visitors comes to the place for the main reason that it’s really accessible to public transportation and even to private vehicle. I started to wander the park and first thing to notice were people taking time having photos with the two lovers metal sculpture. Because I wanted to have a beautiful photos of the statue, I decided to do it later where fewer people around it. I went to the lookout point because at the back of my head, that’s the best point in Guam to see the scenic views of the island and Philippine Sea from the top without having so much trouble in hiking the area.

Lookout Point

During the first visit, I bought my shuttle ticket which at first I was not aware that it comes with the entrance ticket to the Lookout Point. I went to the counter and plan to buy another ticket. Then, I saw other people showing their ticket and they allowed them to go in. Then I asked them, if my ticket which I showed them comes with the entrance, and they agreed to me. So they returned my payment and I went inside the Lookout Point.

When I walked inside the Lookout Point I felt excited because I knew that in few seconds I will be witnessing an amazing scenic views of the bay and the island. There are people taking photos at the best corner of the lookout area. And I took my time to enjoy the scenery and I took lots of photos of it. Because I was alone, I requested someone to take photos of myself, we waited a bit when the corner became empty for a moment I took my chance to stand and post with the beautiful and scenic background of Tumon Bay.

The Love Bell

I learned that this Love Bell is presented by the people of Izu in Japan as part of the common bond between Japan and Chamorros. In relation to this, I found an interesting information around Lookout Point that Two Lovers Point has two sister city in Japan, Two Lovers Point at Izu City, Shizuoka Prefecture and Two Lovers Point at Kashiwazaki City, Niigata Prefecture in Japan. These three places has scenic landmark called “TWO LOVERS POINT” where the legend of love is born.

Part 2

When I did my second visit in Two Lovers Point in Guam, I still take my chances to enjoy the places, the first time that I visited the place, it rained and almost sunset. The second time is sunny day which means I had a brighter day even it was a bit hot.

One thing that surprised me during the second visit was, I never saw the name written on the grass. I was not sure why I never saw this during the first visit, so it kind of good to be able to see this one.


Lookout Point

Because of a brighter day, I cannot stop myself taking photos of familiar scenery but looking at these photos, I see the scenic views in a beautiful time of the day.

Arts and Craft (Post#9) : Two Lovers Point Statue

Two Lovers Point is not the only one that has story on its own, if the tourist spot has its legends and real love story that surrounds it, even the Two Lovers Point Statue has its own. Last 2002, Typhoon Pongsona twisted and knocked the statue to the ground. Many believed that it’s too great to repair, the brass lovers was sold as scrap. The amazing facts happened about the statue, after 13 years, it was put back again to its location because of the people who now involve in the real love story that surrounds the place. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.

Name Of The Place (Post#33) : Puntan Dos Amantes (Two Lovers Point)

During the visit in famous Two Lovers Point in Guam, I never noticed the name itself in the park. I spent so much time at the Lookout Point and unable to even found the name in the garden. But on my way back to Tumon, I was able to capture the name of the place. The second photo was captured during my second visit which part of the Island Tour that I booked to see more of the island. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.



People : Dancing Chamorros

People (Post#4) : Dancing Chamorros

When I am traveling, I love to take photos of things that has my interest, most of them are more into natural landscape and scenery. Taking photos of people is not really my thing, but if taking shots of natural expression of human who are totally different from person standing still and smiling in front of camera, sometimes it is interesting to me if I took a shot similar to a stolen one where the people or person is unaware that he is being photographed, that’s where the real human expression or emotion shows. When I had a chance to watch some part of local dance of Chamorro, I took my chance to get some shots and below were the result of it. I was reminded of Hawaiian dance and not sure if the similarity are because these islands are all located in the Pacific having common a geographic location?

Edible : Hagåtña, Guam – Fiesta Plate

Edible (Post#4) : Hagåtña, Guam – Fiesta Plate

During the Wednesday Night Market at Chamorro Village in Hagåtña, I logically based my reasoning to queue in the longest line just to order my dinner because of curiosity and to have fun as well. People in the line were somewhat has the same reason as mine. I ordered the one they offer for Fiesta (means full pack) Plate and chose the following with BBQ Pork, BBQ, Chicken, Beef BBQ Sausage with 2 Sides (I selected Chicken Kelaguen and Corn) and 2 Scoop of Red Rice for $10. A gluttony indeed !!! These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.



Hagåtña – First European City in the Pacific

Every time I am in new place, I am always excited. My travel to Guam was quite pricey because all my expenses were all in US Dollars. But I tried my best to find ways to make some of my adventure to be cost-effective or a bit of cheap but still not 100% cheap.

First Time Visit

In my second day in Guam, I didn’t book a tour. I got some brochure for public transportation around Tumon Bay, the place where I stayed in the island and the most tourist populated in Guam. Using the public transportation information that I had, I planned to visit the capital city of Guam Hagåtña to do its Heritage Walking Trail.

Hagåtña or its old name in Spanish “Agaña” is the capital city of US Territory of Guam which located at the middle west part of the island. From the hotel that I stayed which was Grand Plaza Hotel, I walked just few minutes towards T Galleria by DFS mall, wherein I thought its the shuttle bus terminal that goes to Hagåtña from Tumon Bay. Unfortunately, when I reached the said mall and when I asked somebody there, I was told that I already passed the terminal, which is Tumon Sands Plaza. I walked back to Tumon Sands Plaza, I saw the bus coming out from the side of the mall, I waved to the driver of the bus, it stopped in front of me and he opened the door. I asked if he was going to Hagåtña and he confirmed that he was, so I hopped into his bus.

The shuttle bus offers one way ticket, round trip and a day ticket. Since I will be visiting Hagåtña, I bought a round trip, to be able to visit the city and to be able to come back in Tumon Bay. The bus fare was $10. I don’t have specific map for Hagåtña Heritage Walking Trail because the Guam Visitor Center is far from my hotel, therefore I relied only using my research result from the internet. So the places that I found in the walk were the places that I was able to identify from the map that I found in the internet.

I got off the bus when it reached the stop near the Dulce Nombre de Maria Cathedral Basilica, the first Catholic Church in Guam which significant historical event in the island when it was dedicated last 1669. The church is also included in the Heritage Walking Trail from the map that I found in the internet. From there, I passed the church and walked towards the Plaza de España.


Plaza de España

As my observation in a Spanish community which very visible in my country (and I think it’s the same case in other country with Spanish influence or probably not specific to Spanish but with the Roman Catholic influence together with imperialism) is the location of a church and its political government office center.  In Hagåtña, the case is not different, Dulce Nombre de Maria Cathedral Basilica is not far from Plaza de España where the Governor’s Palace was formerly standing. I had seen this kind of setting in my country where Catholic churches are near in either in a City or Municipality Hall. Back home we usually call it ‘Bayan’ which most of the time, becomes the capital center of a city or even a province.



While walking at Plaza de España, I saw the map displays information what we can see in the area and what’s left in the site. Based on history, it served as the colonial Spanish Governor’s Palace from 1734 until World War II. The former building stands here became the center stage of government and civic activities from Spanish colonization, to American administration and even to Japanese regime. What we can see right now are only portion of the plaza which they were able to restore since it was destroyed last 1944 during the liberation of Guam from Japanese.

Here are some of the restored part of the Plaza de España

Azotea and Site of Governor’s Palace






Chocolate House





Three-Arch Gate to Almacen (Arsenal)




Garden House (former Guam Museum)








Siesta Shed and Fountain









Insular Guard Monument

Not far from Plaza de España, I found an interesting monument and when I approached it, I learned that it’s a memorial towards the fallen Chamorro men who valiantly defend Guam against Japanese invasion in 1941.




Guam Museum

I wanted to visit Guam Museum but unfortunately, at the time that I was in the city, the museum is closed. A quiet unique design of a museum.





Skinner Plaza



The Pietà of Hagåtña at Skinner Plaza



For all Men and Women Wounded in all Wars

I saw this one, while I was trying my way to find a bus to go back to Tumon Bay. This inscribe a significant event of Guam.


Agana Shopping

While I was waiting at the bus stop for its schedule to leave the terminal going back to Tumon Bay, I was curious what can I see inside the Agan Shopping Center. Since I still have enough time to walk a bit inside the mall, I discovered something that one part of the shopping center will be familiar to me which is called SM Island. I verified that its part of the SM Store which widely spread in my country, they even have BDO bank branch in the island.




When my time to get back to the bus stop, I went out and waited for a while just to make sure I will not miss it. That was how I spent my first time in Hagåtña.

Second Time Visit

It was Wednesday, I came from an adventure that day, but I still have enough time to visit Chamorro Village. The village is in Hagåtña, not far from where I had my first Heritage walk in the city. While visiting the island, I heard that Night Market in Chamorro is exciting and full of people and the food are all good and in cheap price. Because it happens only once a week, which is every Wednesday Night, it became a popular event and famous destination both for local and tourist alike. The public bus schedule for Hagåtña are changed because a different bus line will serve exclusively for such event.

Because I never drive (since I never knew it), I heavily relied in public transportation. And because of that, before even Wednesday night, I checked the brochure information that I have related to bus going to the village on Wednesday night. And that night, from hotel, I walked towards T Galleria by DFS mall and I bought bus ticket which cost $7 and it is a return trip to Tumon Bay. After I bought the ticket I followed the instructions where to take the bus and there I realized, that a lot of people wants to visit Chamorro Village Night Market. We waited a bit and then our bus came and in less than half an hour driving to Hagåtña, we arrived in the famous local village. When I first came to peek the area during the first time visited in the city, it was a quiet place but that night, it was totally opposite. From the time we went off the bus, there are lots of people who can be seen immediately. Aside from the bus line that serves visitors that night, there is tourist bus and private vehicles. So there are quite traffic to experience in the city.

Chamorro Village Night Market

My curiosity leads me to the entrance and both sides has kiosks displaying different products being sell to entice people who comes in and out that way. Near the main entrance, there was a building with lots of people some people seats and having a great dining experience with local food and some were enjoying dancing along side with the music. The dance music was familiar to me, it was Cha-cha. I stopped a bit and watch them a bit. These people know how to have a great time.

Agana Bay

Because we arrived the village a bit early and the sky still clear, I just passed the village and went straight to a point where I can see the Agana Bay. With my camera, I tried to take some snapshots of the bay but it was not as clear as it should be.

The Food

Since it was a night market, what else should I be doing. There are many choices of food. But I don’t want to think anymore which one I should choose. Therefore, I selected the store where it has too many people queuing on it. Well, for one reason, why there are so many people wants to try their food? And why people never complain about the long line. And even there was long line, the wait time was worth of it, when I was so near to see my options, I was confused which one should I chose. I made my mind and then I told them my order and they prepare it so fast. So it’s not really that long to wait. I chose the special plate and to be honest I wasn’t able to finish my food because I was already full.



Chamorro Local Dance Performance

After I had my dinner, I walked around again to see what else to see in the Chamorro Village Night Market. One thing is for sure, you will not get hungry since you have lots of options to eat. Then, local products are spread in different parts of the village. Lots of local kiosks stray around the area. My wandering in the village continue until I heard a music being played not far from where I stand. Then I followed the sounds where it coming from. Then, I saw people were gathered and I discovered there is a small stage nearby. I saw people were watching something, I approached the stage and saw some Chamorro locals doing a local dance performance. I was intrigued what it look like. I was curious if it was similar local dances that we have back home. I enjoyed the show specially the part where they have fires while dancing. It was worth time to enjoy the show.

After watching the dance show, I decided to walk a bit more and check if there are distinct local products that I can find, but in the end, I bought some few post cards in Guam. I decided to go back and I didn’t want to be left behind by bus, so I left the market 30 minutes before the last bus will leave the village. The bus schedule was from 6:30 to 8:30 PM every Wednesday.

Third Time Visit

I was able to return to Hagåtña for the third time unintentionally during my Island Tour that I booked because there were no other way for me to see most of the island using public transportation. The buses are only available in Tamuning, Tumon Bay and Hagåtña, outside this part of the island, the only option is to take a taxi, rent a private vehicle or join a tour.

The tour visit lots of places in the island and Hagåtña is just part of it. We had stopped in the city that gave me a chance to see other parts of the walking trail that I haven’t been able to see during my first visit. The surprising thing was that these other parts of walking trail that I was talking about was not far from where I had been during the first visit.

Below are the continuation of Hagåtña Heritage Walking Trail that I had during island tour.

Stone Latte Park

This latte stone is a symbolical pillar that represents the culture of local people (Chamorro) in the island. And the shape of this are commonly seen around Guam. These pillars were the Chamorro houses stands before. These lattes are used as the foundations of important structures in Chamorro Villages.

Senator Angel Leon Guerrero Santos Latte Stone Memorial Park

Based on the displayed description of the monument, I learned that he is a man who advocates the for the Chamorro rights that has been long denied by US because of historic injustices and for equality under the law. He was credited for the success of federal land and disbursement of Chamorro Land Trust property  to eligible Chamorros.



Japanese Caves Latte Park

Not far from Latte Stone Park, the interlocking caves used by Japanese for storage and air-raid shelters can be found.


Well, it was three visit in the same city, but for those three times that I had been in Hagåtña, all were discovery. All things that I saw and experience were different in those visit. And with those visits, I realized some of its culture has similarity to mine but still there’s distinction to emphasize for its own identity.

Additional Tips :
Always confirm the return of the bus from Chamorro Village to avoid being left behind if you only rely on public transportation. As far as I remembered, the bus last return to Tumon is 20:30. So its better to take the earliest schedule to the village to be able to spend more than an hour to enjoy the night with lots of foods, to be able to shop souvenirs and even to watch Chamorro Cultural Dance Show.

In The Middle Of Somewhere : Chamorro Village

In The Middle Of Somewhere (Post#10) : Chamorro Village

During my second visit in Hagåtña, the Capital City of Guam, the main place that I had been most of the time was at Chamorro Village because it is famous for its Wednesday Night Market. And I was curious how famous the village is. And before it’s totally dark, the village comes to life. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.





Something To Look At : Plaza de España

Something To Look At (Post#8): Plaza de España

When I did the Heritage Walking Trail, I was pondering and looking back on the historical site, how war ruins a lot of things. Because Japanese seats in the plaza for few years when they were able to take over Guam for a moment from US and when the latter reclaims it again, the plaza has been damaged severely in 1944. Now what remains are only parts that can be restored at that time and that are all can be seen in the site. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.








Chromatic Outlook : Insular Guard Monument

Chromatic Outlook (Post#36) : Insular Guard Monument

They also called it as Guam Insular Force Guard Monument (Memorial) which honors the gallant stands of Chamorro men against the invading Japanese imperial army troops in 1941. These men were recruited 8 months ago before the World War II outbreak in the pacific. US Navy Captain McMillin decided to surrender to prevent more killings of the Guam Defenders. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.




Travel Diary 101 : On My Way to Guam

I experienced a bit of traffic on my way to Manila International Airport Terminal 3 around 12:30 AM of Sunday morning but after struggling for 30 minutes of slow movement in specific part of Aguinaldo Highway, the overall travel was smooth and I was thankful for it.

I arrived at the airport around 1:30AM, I found lots of passenger in the terminal, probably thinking the same thing I was thinking, many people trying to avoid travel rush for the Holy Week which is a major holiday in the country as it is used to have long holiday aside from Christmas.

I checked the information in the monitor screen that I passed on my way to travel tax desks. After I saw the check-in counter information, I queued and paid my travel tax and walked towards the entrance of my check-in counter. Because of too many people, I fall in line in the queue thinking that it was the same line to enter the check-in counter for my flight. That decision was based from my past flights in that airline. The said airline tends to make one line for all their flights regardless of your destination and time of your flight. I didn’t notice if there was sign that separates Guam flights to the rest of their flights.

I got nervous because the queue for check-in was crazy, it even passed the whole counter area. But I had some doubts because I have this impression that US flights will not have that many passengers compared with other flights. I went to the entrance of the counters and I asked the airline crew for check-in counter of Guam flight. The crew confirmed my suspicion that queue for Guam is different. I wasn’t able to see the sign immediately because it was partially obstructed by people queuing near the entrance. I felt relieved and was glad that it’s at the opposite side. I showed my printed flight itinerary to the crew and she allowed me to go inside the counter area and queued along with few other passengers. I queued for few minutes and it was my turn to check-in, the process was finished without a hitch. Since it was still early, I spent hours waiting at the boarding gate.

Then boarding time came and I followed other passengers to board the plane. Inside the plane, I was sitting in window seat and alone in 3 seat row at left side of the plane and there was another passenger at the right side window seat, same with me alone at his row. The flight in overall was smooth except for sometime that I felt a turbulence outside the plane. I napped from time to time since I didn’t have enough sleep before my flight. I woke up and saw my meal has already been served.


After more than 4 hours flight, we arrived at the island which is a USA territory not really far from my country at the right most side in the Pacific Ocean. After disembarking the plane, I walked straight to immigration and queued the visitors lane. My lane was slow since it’s only one officer assisting us at first. When all USA residents passed immigration, visitors lanes moves faster as other immigration officer helped out until I reached my time to face one of them. I had my face captured, my finger print recorded and after few questions, I passed the immigration without glitch.


First thing to learn when I went outside the airport was the transportation was not immediately available as most likely other passengers went out before me took all those waiting cab outside. I walked to the taxi kiosk’s counter near the entrance/exit of the airport but it was closed. I tried to enable my data roaming and started browsing but nothing happens like no internet in my phone. It’s good thing that they have some employees in the ground and someone asked me if I need a cab and I responded in agreement.


I waited only few minutes, the cab arrived and I jumped into it. I was very thankful that he was a Filipino and we talked at bit on the way to my hotel. The fare was $18. We arrived in the hotel that I booked around past lunch time. I asked the hotel clerk if I can check-in at the time that I arrived but the hotel clerk said it will be at 2 PM. I asked the hotel if the pocket WiFi that I rented in Guam has arrived in the hotel and I was glad that it was already there. After I received the pocket WiFi, I used it to browse where can I go while in Guam. So technically I was browsing internet at the hotel lobby while waiting for my time to check-in.

After I checked-in to my room. I stayed there to prepare my adventure plan in the island for the next coming days. I decided to rest since I haven’t had enough sleep the night of my travel. I had my dinner to fill me in and down to bed with my first day in Guam.

Until then.

Discovery : Mabini Historical Marker at Asan Beach Park

Discovery (Post#25) : Mabini Historical Marker at Asan Beach Park

In one of the tours I had in Guam, I had a chance to see a marker of a familiar hero back home – Apolinario Mabini. I felt proud when I saw such marker. At least in a small island like Guam, one of patriotic men in my country is recognized in that part of the world. He is one of my country’s extraordinary hero as he lost his both legs because of polio disease, it wasn’t hindered him to give his love and service to the country and he often called as “The Sublime Paralytic”. Aside from that I myself more recognized him as the “Brains of the Revolution” as he became adviser when forming revolutionary government of my country. Mabini was captured by American colonial authorities during Philippine-American war and exiled to Guam. The marker which is Asan Point is where Mabini lived in Guam. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.
