Bohol, is a province of the Philippines, in the country’s Central Visayas region, comprising Bohol Island and 70-plus smaller surrounding islands. It’s known for its coral reefs, scuba diving, diverse wildlife and unusual land formations. On the main island, near the town of Carmen, are the iconic Chocolate Hills, some 1,200 symmetrical mounds that turn cocoa-brown in the dry season.
Bohol is the tenth largest island in the Philippines. It is one of the bigger islands in ‘the Visayas’, the group of islands in the center of the Philippines. Bohol is, together with 72 small islands around the main island, an island province of 4117 square kilometer. Agriculture, together with the tourism, are the two dominating economic sectors of the main island Bohol.
Head out to Carmen to tour the famous Chocolate Hills – more than 1,268 grass-covered limestone domes that are nearly symmetrical in shape and height. The picturesque hills turn a distinct shade of brown during the dry season and give them a passing resemblance to a certain confectionary treat, hence their name. To give your sightseeing an extra kick, try touring the hills by ATV.
Another popular tourist spot is the Philippine Tarsier and Wildlife Sanctuary in Corella. Drop by the park for a rare chance to get up close to the Philippine tarsier in its natural habitat. At just three to six inches tall, this animal is one of the smallest primates in the world. With gaping eyes, miniscule proportions and a sensitive nature, the tarsier certainly has a quirky charm.
For a unique cruise experience, there’s Loboc. As you slowly drift down the Loboc River, you can enjoy a delicious Filipino buffet and a serenade from a local community.
The Loboc Ecotourism Adventure Park also offers a zipline and an open-air cable car ride, both providing impressive aerial views of the river.
More thrilling exploits also await at E.A.T Danao. Ask them what the “plunge” is when you get there — and see if you’re brave enough to go for it.
Baclayon is a great stop for people who enjoy historical architecture.
Stop at the Aproniana Gift Shop, which carries everything from local delicacies to tarsier plush toys.
