of an airport as coralline limestone is soluble which causes formation of caves and sinkholes. The most famous Hinagdanan Cave is only a short walk from Panglao Beach.

On Oct. 15, 2013, the earth trembled for 33 seconds in Bohol, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake that devastated the island and reduced structures both old and new into piles of rubble. Despite the odds, this melancholic Central Visayas paradise has proven to be as resilient as the centuries-old bricks that make up the churches of its heritage district. Now Bohol, which has always been known for its unique chocolate hills, is showing that they are more than these inedible little mountains. For anyone looking for a place where culture meets nature, this is exactly where they should be.

I usually don't plan my days, like I don't plan the rest of my life, but a long weekend was coming up and, for the first time in many years, it didn't catch me by surprise, which often left me with no choice but to spend it in Manila cooped up in my house or otherwise enjoying the city while much of its residents were out somewhere making memories.
Destination: Bohol. And it makes sense because I've been to Bohol many times and I've done many of the standard activities??"the firefly tour, lunch on a raft on Loboc River, centuries-old churches, the Chocolate Hills, the tarsier sightings??"bu ...
If there are two places I really like in the Philippines, then that would be Bohol and Ilocos. The former because life on the island is simple and the beach is pristine. Unlike Boracay which is densely populated, Bohol is far from congestion. The latter? well, that will be another story.
Thanksgiving of 2016 together with my siblings, we flew Philippine Airlines from NAIA Terminal 2 to Tagbiliran Airport. The one hour, ten minutes flight was slightly turbulent but somewhere Bicol the flight became smooth and I was able to nap.
Okay, so here's the thing. The hotel we stayed at is no way ...
On our 2nd day at Bohol, we decided to just stay at the resort, enjoy the beach and swim.
We also wanted to have a decent rest from all the lakwatsa we had the previous day and pile up on some energy for a full 2-day lakwatsa in Cebu.
Our accommodation was an airconditioned room with two twin bed, one has a pullout bed underneath and a private restroom. It comes with complimentary bottled water for each of us and a set breakfast. Wasn't able to take some photos inside as we were tired and jumped on the bed after seeing it. hehe But it really is a good accommodation. Something yo ...
We took the OceanJet's 8am schedule. It was a 2-hour ferry ride from Cebu to Tagbilaran. The ticket costs 800 each pax /way. Fortunately, we were able to avail their Libre-Balik promo, so our ticket for the next day trip back to Cebu is FREE! yippee. There is a minimal fee if you want your baggage checked-in, though.
The van we rented picked us from the port upon our arrival. It is a must to rent a car or van for your tour in Bohol. Tourist spots are kinda far from each other and I am not sure if there is a way to commute there. Should there be any, I still suggest you get a van. Below ar ...
Bohol is a province in Central Visayas which is abundant of tourist destinations. From the beautiful landscape of Chocolate Hills, to the home of the smallest primate tarsier, and to the beautiful white sand beaches of Panglao, Bohol is indeed one of the top destination of the local and foreign tourists. Well, I can say I am one lucky woman to be a yearly visitor of this province since I was young. My parents are both native of Bohol that's why we always spend our summer vacation here since we were already residing in the province of Northern Samar.
HOW TO GET THERE?
