MV Doulos (Bacolod)

MV Doulos is a big ship. A two years younger than the Titanic, this is the oldest ship that still crosses and navigates the ocean all around the world.

MV Doulos is a big ship that circumnavigates the world with its books, bringing knowledge, help and hope. I was surprised two days ago when a friend asked me to go over Doulos. I asked where the hell is that, and she brought me into this place. It was docked in Bredco Port. It’s a big white ship which has an entrance fee of 10 Pesos. Upon entrance, there are books sold in varying costs from a dollar to five a-piece. You can locate yourself though, from drama to inspirational to children, you name a genre they got it. It’s a big bookstore - in a big ship!

Since most are bargain books, I found myself buying a book for five years old. I am going to give them to my nephews, actually. Well, MV Doulos also has a cafe. For refreshment purposes, you can visit this place after you’re done shopping within the book shop area.

Well, it’s quite a nice experience with this one. Shopping books over a big ship overlooking the sea.
