(This is part 1 of a two-part guide to Bohol)

I wasn’t exactly thrilled When my lil sis told me that we should go to Bohol. I went to this central Philippine province a decade ago, and the only thing I remembered doing was taking photos of the province’s main tourist attraction: the Chocolate Hills. They’re lovely but that was no compelling reason for me to come back. (read more here)

    Thanks for reminding me again that I have to visit this place very soon. Im very fascinated with Tarsiers looks and Im looking forward to be see them live! Im quite fascinated on how these hills were formed and beneficial to vegetations or maybe towards soil protection.

    • Hi Rey, thanks for visiting our site. No I have no idea on how these hills were formed. But they’re nice to look at.

    • Hi Naex, I prefer just hiring a car and a driver as it’s more practical. Hiwa-hiwalay ang mga tourist sites sa bohol at sobrang hassle yung pag-bus or tricycle. bihira din ang taxi. a van that fits a four to five people can be hired for 3,000 pesos a day. may driver na yun.
