Beautiful Places To See in Bohol
A beguiling island which is home to the iconic Chocolate Hills which are thousands of dome-shaped chocolate colored limestone hills situated in the province’s central portion. Bohol is also known for the Queen Bee Farm, the Loboc River Cruise, white sand beaches and dive sites in Panglao Island, centuries old stone churches, the gigantic Humpback Whales, the mischievous dolphins, the flying lemur and the tarsier, the world’s smallest primate.
A wonderful blend of nature and culture. Bohol is the prime eco-cultural tourist destination in the Philippines. The island boasts of a rich heritage of centuries old churches, peculiar musical instruments and angelic voices.
how to get there
The most convenient way to get to Bohol from the neighboring islands is by fast ferry. Fast ferries offer a high speed passenger service, often using Singapore or Danish built catamaran type motorboats. These have a cruising speed of about 50 kilometers per hour. When you are on board, these boats resemble aircraft, including the safety instruction video just before departure. The fare is about three times the fare of a regular ferry. Some have a small open-air deck, where you can feel the breeze and watch the islands pass by, but others don’t allow you to go outside during the trip. They are my favorite for island-hopping.
Note that the route via Tubigon is normally cheaper (also available by fastcraft), and can be faster, even when going to Tagbilaran, if you take a V-hire or bus from Tubigon to Tagbilaran
A large number of regular ferries connect Bohol with the other islands of the Philippines. They are the cheapest way to travel from island to island, and hence can be very crowded during high season (just before the Holy Week or Christmas).
This list is far from exhaustive, and schedules tend to change often, especially with the smaller shipping companies. If you have additional information, please tell us, so that we can share it here.
