Five Things You Should Not Miss When Traveling to Bohol

Bohol is one of my favorite provinces in the Philippines.

Located in the Central Visayas region, it is one of its largest islands. I’ve been to Bohol twice, and both visits were truly blissful and memorable. Both the people and the food were truly wonderful and heart-warming.

Here are my top five picks for places you should not miss when you visit this province in the Visayas.

1. SEE THE MAJESTIC CHOCOLATE HILLS

A visit to Bohol is not complete if you don’t experience the view of the Chocolate Hills. Even from the plane, you’ll see these wonderful creations that God has entrusted us. These hills are covered in green grass, which turn into brown like chocolate kisses during the summer or dry season.




2. HOP ON A RIVER CRUISE

Cruising the Loboc River while a band serenades you over lunch is one of the romantic experiences you’ll get while in Bohol.





3. RACE WITH THE DOLPHINS

Waking up early in the morning to race with the dolphins is totally worth it. You’ll get to see them in their natural habitat swimming and playing.


4. STAND ON THE SAND BAR AT VIRGIN ISLAND

A bar of white powdery sand in between two bodies of water is a sight to behold. It’s a little scary at first, as the water goes up depending on the time of the day, but it is one place in Bohol that you would not want to miss.




5. VISIT THE TARSIER SANCTUARY

Did you know that tarsiers can turn their heads up to 180 degrees?! 

Aside from the Chocolate Hills, the tarsiers are probably the most visited attraction in Bohol. Sad to say, tarsiers are now endangered animals. Be sure to follow the sanctuary rules when visiting these little friends of ours.
