Philippines is famous when it comes to affordable yet relaxing white beach resorts like Boracay and Palawan but many tourists are not aware of this beautiful province called Bohol. Bohol is considered as a first class province located at Central Visayas Region. This province is accessible by plane to Tagbilaran City or to Cebu City then ferry transfer to Tagbilaran seaport. People from the Philippines can take a ferry ride from Manila to Bohol.

What to do in Bohol? Well, Panglao Island is the most popular place for some tourists because of the affordable pristine white beaches compared to the crowded beach of Boracay. Restaurants serving different cuisines are available everywhere and the price is worth it. Travellers enjoy staying under the sun, laying on the sand and having a good massage from the roaming masseuse. They also have music and drinking bars near the beach for visitors who enjoy staying up late at night. Tourists can try island hopping and scuba diving in the morning. Virgin Island is one of the destinations they are proud of due to the long stretch of white sand. Travel lodge and inns are not that expensive but you can always choose a simple room to stay in if you are planning to take a city tour.
Bohol is well known for the Chocolate Hills in Carmen, Bohol. It is considered as the jewel of the Philippines. The breath taking view of the Chocolate Hills amazed many people when it turns brown during the summer season. Another attraction for some visitors is the Loboc River wherein a short cruise is being offered. People enjoy listening to the native performers as they munch on filipino food served at the floating restaurants. A tour to the Bilar Man-made Forest before heading to the Chocolate hills would also be a great experience.
Travellers and Tourists who are looking for extreme adventures may try the zipline, hanging bridge and cable car in Loboc. A vacation in Bohol would not be complete without seeing the historical and fascinating places such as the Baclayon Church with the miraculous image of St. Pio, The Blood Compact Site, ShipHaus, Tarsier Sanctuary, Bee Farm and Exzootic Animal farm. Good thing is you can visit most of these places in one day. Tour Guides and Transportation are available at the airport and most of the travel agencies offer great deals and reasonable package tour as soon as you arrived at the airport. The traveller can choose between a car ride or a motorized tricycle but there is just a little difference with the price.
Souvenirs and delicacies are sold in Panglao Island although they are quite pricey compared to the products at some souvenir shops in Baclayon. Aproniana is the most recommended souvenir or gift shop located at Taguihon, Baclayon, Bohol near the Baclayon church wherein you can purchase affordable bohol products and delicacy to be given to your loved ones. Consider Bohol, Philippines for your next travel and you will get a whole lot of experience in one province.
