Trip to Chocolate Hills
The Chocolate Hills are probably the most famous tourist attraction in Bohol. These perfectly cone-shaped hills abound in Central Bohol -- 1,268 of them in all. They are spread generously around the municipalities of Carmen, Batuan, and Sagbayan, which are about 55 kilometers from Tagbilaran City. Getting to the Chocolate Hills is easy, just ask your hotel to help you get to the area!  

Tarsier Experience
Considered the smallest primate that can only be found in the Philippine Achipelago, tarsiers are the favorite subjects of scientific research. Tarsiers are nocturnal primates measuring from 4 to 5 inches, and have a tail which is longer than its body.

Locally known as Maumag, Boholanos are usually protective of these small, lovely creatures. However, if you are really interested in seeing them, you're always welcome to visit their natural abode in the town of Corella, about 10 kilometers from Tagbilaran City.

Loboc River Cruise

Loboc is known for its floating restaurants along its scenic and winding river. Each floating restaurant holds about 20-25 people . This fascinating boat ride starts from Loay Bridge which is the outlet of the river, moves along the serene waters and palm-fringed banks inland, and ends near the Busay waterfalls. The boat takes about 45 minutes to reach the end, where it will stop for a while so guests can enjoy the view. Afterwards, the boat turns around and makes its way back downstream.

The river is clean and green during summer, and turns brown during the rainy season. But it doesn’t really matter what time of the year you decide to go here, as fresh air, scrumptious food, and a completely unique experience has no season!


Exploring Hinagdanan Cave
The whole island province of Bohol is also dubbed as "Cave Country", as it has more than 1,000 counted caves at present, and some may even remain unexplored!
