Bohol - Exploring Beautiful Bohol!

DAY 1 - September 3, 2009

We arrived at Mactan International Airport at around 5:30 am and went straight to Cebu Port to book a ride going to Tagbilaran via SuperCat. After a very uncomfortable ride due to big waves, we arrived in Tagbilaran Port at 10:15 am and looked for the van that we rented.

Places we visited:

Blood Compact Shrine in Tagbilaran City it is where the Blood Compact happened between Sikatuna and Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. This act symbolized peace and friendship which took place on March 16, 1565.


Baclayon Church is the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. It is considered as one of the oldest Catholic stone church building in the Philippines.


Loboc River this is where we had our lunch. What I enjoyed most is the breathtaking scenery that surrounds the floating restaurant. The lush greens all around are captivating against a perfectly blue sky which adds tranquility to the ride, and not to forget the great music by the singers from the band.


Chocolate Hills in Carmen who would miss out going to the world's famous landmark of Bohol? Formed centuries ago by tidal movements, the hills are considered as a National Geologic Movement. During summers, the dome-shaped hills covered with grass dries up and turns brown, which makes the area into seemingly endless rows of chocolate kisses. Kaya cya tinawag na Chocolate Hills... Hehehe!


Man-made Forest in Bilar according to our guide, the mahogany trees found in the area were planted by the students of Holy Name University several years ago. It’s a stretch of two-kilometer, densely planted area of Mahogany trees. When you're there, you'll feel like you are entering a different world - it's refreshing and you can feel the fresh air around you.


Hanging Bridge in Tigbao - It is made of steel cables and bamboo flooring. When you walk through the bridge it is pretty shaky and swings a lot, but it's a lot of fun! On the other side, you'll find some souvenir shops and the "buko king" of bohol.


"See a Tarsier" another popular icon of Bohol. The Philippine Tarsier, known locally as Mamag is one of the smallest primates in the world and is considered to be the mammal with the biggest eyes. You should turn off your camera's flash when you take pictures of the lovely tarsiers.


A Souvenir Shop I cannot recall the name of the shop. But, this is where you could find a wide variety of souvenir items and delicacies.


After all the tour, we went to Cherry's Inland Resort located in Panglao Island, where we have our reservation.

At night we went to "Lost Horizon Resort" in Alona Beach to have our dinner and some drinks (di ako uminom, wala sa mood.... hehehe!)


DAY 2 - September 4, 2009

In the morning of our second day in Bohol, we went back to Alona Beach to swim, pero malakas ang alon kaya di na kame nag-swimming... Nag-breakfast nalang kame at nag-picture picture sa beach, then we went back to our resort at nagswimming nalang sa pool. Hehehe!




We checked-out at around 1:00 pm because our schedule in the SuperCat going back to Cebu is @ 2:30pm. Cebu, here we come!!!
