Bohol Tour : Being a Dayuhan in my own birth place

I lived in Bohol since birth but either you believe it or not I just explored the beauty of Bohol just this year 2017. Yes, it was 1st of January this year when my sister Ethel and her friend Al Amorin had a tour in some beautiful spots in Bohol. They invited me to join with them, it was a rainy day when we had a tour in Bohol. From our town Bien Unido we went to Tagbilaran City via Talibon we ride a series bus going to Tagbilaran City. Before we went to Tagbilaran, we arranged first our tour accommodation.


We leave the town of Talibon around 8:00 am so we arrived in Tagbilaran around 12:00 it was not an ideal time for us because we need to be in hurry always so that we can catch up the bus going back to our town later afternoon the same day. From Talibon we arrive in Tagbilaran Bus Terminal then we meet the tour guide with his car. We start our tour right away, the very first palce we visited was statue of the blood compact. We went to Bohol's famous tourist attraction, the Chocolate hills. It was my very first time seeing the beauty, it was amazing and absolutely beautiful.





We went to a peak where we can see the over looking of the hills, it was like 2-3 mins walk for me from the ground but for the oldies maybe it will take 5-10 minutes including rest time. We also went to Butterfly Sanctuary wherein you can see the the different species of butterfly though not all but at least you can see some. The crew in the spot are absolutely friendly and approachable. 






Your tour in Bohol is not complete without seeing the world smallest monkey the Tarsier and the Man-made Forest. When we visited the area, there are rules that is strictly to be followed for the safety of the creatures. (1.) not allowed to use selfie stick (2.) lower your voice so that the creature will not be disturbed in their sleep (3.) turn off the flash of your camera because Tarsier eyes is kinda sensitive of light. The Tarsier will just sleep during day time, the care taker of the place said before there are heaps of Tarsier living in the place  but during the destructible earth struck in the province on the 15th of October at 8:12:32 PST year 2013 some of the creatures got stressed and some dies unfortunately.




The Bohol Forest is a man-made mahogany forest stretching in a two-kilometer stretch of densely planted Mahogany trees located in the border of Loboc and Bilar towns. The man-made forest stands out because of the uniformity in height of the big trees, the spread of its branches, thickness and design of leaves. Seedlings abound around the older trees. Trunks, some thick and others just a few months old, grow resplendently straight up towards the sky which is obscured by the branches and the thick leaves.


Loboc Bohol is home of the famous Loboc Children’s Choir, Loboc is a peaceful municipality that is world famous to its well-known river which is aptly called Loboc River. This river is one of the cleanest rivers in the country. This is the one tourist spot you don’t want to miss during your Bohol Tours.

When visiting the town of Loboc you can experience cruising along the river on board small a bancas or floating restaurant.
The Loboc River Dinner Cruise starts by the Loay Bridge which is located in the neighboring town of Loay or at the Loboc town proper where you can choose from a variety of river cruising vessels. The Loboc River cruise usually runs for an hour or so back and forth.

There were more spots that we haven't visited during the tour because we are out of time.
