There are many things to do in Bohol for a day. That is, if you’re into seeing too much for a short visit in the island. Yes, sightseeing in Bohol for a day is very possible. However, you really have to know where and what places you want go and see.
Though you won’t be able to know its people and culture first-hand while moving from one place to another, visiting almost all the famous places you want to see can be within the time frame you planned ahead, as long as you start early.
While our time to stay there was limited, our hosts hired a bus to bring us to places we wanted to go.
At 7:30, the bus picked us up at your budget hotel where four us were cramped in a suite room. A suite room in a third world is not the one you imagine, of course. 🙂 Especially in a 2-star hotel.
But anyway, I’m a backpacker and I really don’t care where to sleep as long as its within a four-walled space—and as long as the bathroom is within reach and I can take a shower anytime of the day.
Our first stop was the [easyazon_link asin=”B008F256SQ” locale=”US” new_window=”yes” nofollow=”default” tag=”pridecostume-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”yes” popups=”yes”]Chocolate Hills in Carmen[/easyazon_link] town. We hiked up to Carmen Hill Peak and the Sagbayan Hill Peak. The panoramic view is unforgettable. This tourist attraction is the reason why tourists flock to the island of Bohol. The Chocolate Hills is one of those natural wonders that you have to see to believe!
We had our lunch in this very refreshing man-made forests. Though I didn’t eat lunch because I was super full, the place is one hell of heaven on earth. A lot of tourists do their picnic or stop for lunch. No annoying vendors here, so bring your own food. 😉
TARSIER, The World’s Smallest Monkey
Arent they cute?
These flying lemurs are also found in the same tarsier sanctuary you’ll visit.
In the same place where you can have a glimpse of the tarsier, you can also enjoy watching the boat restaurants that pass the Loboc River, one of the province’s main attractions. If you are going to take this boat-resto tour, you will entertained by the singing cooks and waiters with their fabulous rendition of Filipino songs while cruising down the river.
It was soooooo hot inside. One had to pass by a really, really tiny hole with steep stairs to get inside this cave. To be honest, there’s nothing especial about this cave. The stalactites and stalagmites seem to be lifeless. But, hey, the reflection is nice! 🙂
Panglao Island is known for its Panglao Beach with a fine white sand. However, we were dissapointed because the beach was dirty. There’s a lot of litter. I guess, we went to the wrong beach part of Panglao. Do your research which part of Panglao has the best sand quality and clean.
This is the islands most famous delicacy. No tourist would leave without buying and tasting one. Spread it on your bread.
Walk around and you never know what you discover. 😉
