Medical Mission

I only had a short stay in Butuan as my visit there was work-related. We conducted a Medical Mission for military and police retirees and pensioners and I was the one who coordinated the activity with our branch office there. I didn't have much time to see what Butuan has to offer travel-wise. Although Butuan is in the Mindanao area, the place is actually quite peaceful. Very common sight though are trucks loaded with logs.

Tha Agusan River

Coming from the airport to the town proper you will see the Agusan River. Since it was raining a lot when we were there, the water was quite brownish. This could be caused by erosion due to excessive logging.

Suspension Bridge

You will pass through the Agusan River through this suspension bridge. I was told that this bridge is the longest suspension bridge in the country.
