The Bohol Tour

Posted by: Dan Gideon

I love Bohol.

The beaches: Panglao is way smaller than Boracay, less congested, more developed, and way more private.

People: Cool people who really love Bohol: Our tour guide Manong Dudong. The people less in your face about renting or buying things, way more courteous and respectful than in Boracay. A good 70-80 percent of the travelers were foreigners so you'd make interesting friends as well.

Tour packages: Chocolate hills, the "Sanduguan" shrines (they have two, the "real one" commissioned by Ambeth Ocampo), the Loboc river lunch on the boat cruise, the Tarsiers, the churches (one was the second oldest one), the man-made forest (literally planted by boy scouts and girl scouts of the Philippines) and the dolphin sighting. I only saw four dolpins because of the low tides, high waves condition of the sea. Nonetheless, wowoweee!

Bohol By Wil

Posted by: Wil

One of the places I visited during my recent trip to the Philippines was Bohol. I went with my sister and in order to get to Bohol, we had to take a ferry from Cebu. We went to the docks to catch one and as we were waiting, a rather large ferry arrived. I then noticed some small boats alongside the ferry. I got up to get a closer look and the small boats turned out to be carrying beggars begging for money from ferry passengers:

Some of the beggars even held nets so that they could catch money thrown at them by ferry passengers. That's the first time I've ever seen beggars on boats.

Around Bohol

Posted by: dpresident

I woke up at 7:30 this morning. Before heading off to breakfast, I sent a message to Dario, the taxi driver from the night before. He’d agreed to take me on a tour of Bohol, starting at 10 a.m. and ending at the airport at 3 p.m., for 1000 pesos. The huts at Nuts Huts are along the river. The restaurant is on a hill, at the end of a steep set of stairs. Breakfast was a pleasant affair of brewed coffee, vegetable omelette, butter and a warm roll. The roll seemed freshly made. I had Chris contact Sari Manok to request that a boat pick me up at 9:30.

At 9:55, there was still no sign of the boat. I sent a message to Dario requesting that he ask Sari Manok to pick me up if he was waiting at the dock for me. About 10 minutes later, the boat arrived. The boat was no from Sari Manok, but rather from the same company that had dropped me off the night before. Chris was worried that there would be a fight between the two companies if I took that boat but I had been waiting at the pier for Sari Manok for 35 minutes and had no desire to wait any longer. I figured that their lateness was just cause for them to lose my business.

My Continuing Love Affair with Bohol!

Posted by: Coolbabe Tita

You think im talking about a guy? Hell no, im talking about one of the Phillipines' most amazing provinces... Bohol.

My first time to set foot on this province was in June 2006. Like an infatuated teenager, i fell in love at first sight. The province is just too amazing to behold. If you are a beach enthusiast, there's the amazing Panglao Island to explore. You love culture and history? Bohol is rich with it too. Nature lover? You'll have the Chocolate Hills (a wonder in itself!), the Hagdanan Cave, the tarsiers (smallest primates in the planet), the beautiful long stretches of white sand beaches, the gorgeous diving sites, or you can have that yummy lunch on a boat restaurant while cruising the Loboc River. Remember the feeling of looking at someone and your heart goes a-flutter? This place just evoked that in me in my first visit.

I came back a week after, on my birthday. It may be a working day for me but Im lucky to have a job that I love and allows me to indulge my infatuation at the same time.

White sands of Candabong, Anda, Bohol

Posted by: Gibo

No doubt it was the highlight of our vacation in Bohol. Last December 30, we trooped from the mountains of Sudlon, Alicia, Bohol, where my wife hails, to the enchanting white sands of Candabong, Anda, a nearby town, for a cool Rizal Day splash.

The beach was public. We paid absolutely nothing to get in. The sand was creamy white and not artificial, unlike those in other private resorts in the province. At the farthest end of the semi-oval stretch of white sand is a small rock/island shaped like a soldier's helmet. Along the shore were lines of boats and huts lying idly, as if time has stopped in that corner of the world.

Beautiful Bohol

Posted by: Swikey

For the longest time I can remember, Bohol was one of my "must go" places in the Philippines. Somehow, plans of going to the island never followed through until now.

I just came back from Bohol with three amazing friends -- Blooey, Janeh, and LA -- who proved to be great company when there's not much to do at night. Oh yes, we can keep ourselves amazed without tearing each other's heads off.

Anyhow, what makes Bohol infinitely fantastic is that it offers a welcome respite for the weary city dweller. Blame it on the pristine beaches, the laid-back vibe, and the abundance of everything green, but Bohol really is the ideal escape from all things related to the stress and hustle-bustle of living in Manila.
