Upon the thousands of wonderful places to choose from in Philippines, Bohol is one of the wisest choice. In Bohol, there is so much to do, to visit, to try, and to see. The best time to travel to Bohol is around January to March. Luckily, my trip was scheduled around February. That means there will be less rain and would be more sunny which means more rounds of adventure.
GETTING TO BOHOL
From Cebu, we boarded a fast ferry for about 2 hours trip bound to Tagbilaran, Bohol with a fare of 800-1000 estimated Php through SuperCat Shipping Lines (Schedules: 5:50,8:15,11:00,13:15,15:35,18:00)
When we arrived at Tagbilaran, we rode a public van with other people to Alona in Panglao. and paid only 80 pesos per head. During my visit, although we had a choice to just ride public tricycles, we ended up renting a motorcycle. It was less hassle and fun as we were able to go around the Island fast. Me and my travel buddies paid around 500 pesos a day for each motorcycle. You can also have the choice of riding a jeepney or a bus. It is cheaper but would really take time to arrive to your destination because they have numerous stops to collect passengers along the way.
One of my favorite travel destination was the Tarsier Sanctuary where you can see live and real tarsiers on branches. They looked cute and interesting. They are known to be the smallest primate in the world. We were able to visit and pass across a wooden bridge above Loboc River, see the geological formations of the famous Chocolate Hills, dive at Balicasag Marine Sanctuary, spend the night at Balicasag Island Dive Resort, swim under the sun in the clear sea water at Damaluan Beach and Doljo Beach, see Bees at Bohol Bee Farm, Explore Hinagdanan Cave, and visit Candijay Rice Terraces in 7 Days.
