When in the Philippines, try asking a local how many islands compose the country. Don't be surprised if they would answer, "High tide or low tide"? It's a popular reference to the witty response of a Filipina beauty queen who was asked the same question at the Miss Universe 1994.
When a nature photographer stumbled upon Philippine gems. The author explores the Bohol Island in the Philippines central Visayas region, the hidden reefs, the sublime Chocolate Hills and the endangered Philippine tarsier.

Bohol is most iconic for The Chocolate Hills and its cute alien looking Tarsiers. The Chocolate Hills are an incredible landscape of cone shaped hills that are spread over 50km. If youre lucky enough to visit while the sun is rising over the hills, be sure to take it all in because its truly amazing! If youre planning on visiting the Chocolate Hills be sure to also check out the Tarsiers as they are only 30 minutes away, making it the perfect day trip.
The most sustainable (or at least acceptable) place in the Philippines for a close encounter with the tarsiers is the Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary* in Corella, Bohol.
We got to know Mr. Carlito, the founder and heart of the sanctuary, whos investing all his time and money to enlarge the protected area for the little primates, spread awareness around them and is even able to breed them. In the sanctuary a "guide" leads you through a little forest, pointing out where the tiny fellas sleep. Please be aware, that tarsiers are very sensitive animals, so keep a proper distance and dont disturb th ...
When someone will say Bohol one of the obvious second notion will be either Chocolate Hills or Tarsier or whenever someone will mentioned Tarsier the initial response would be "Sa Bohol" This was based on my experience and because of that, Tarsier has been one of the most visited spot in Bohol and one shouldn't miss it. Not just because its one of the obvious tourist spot in Bohol but because visiting it means seeing the smallest primate there is.
