 Bohol, Bohol, Bohol..just can't get enough of Bohol.

This part of the country (Philippines)is just so blessed, it has everything nature have to offer. Our four days visit is just not enough to explore its beauty.

On our first day in Bohol , since we arrived at Tagbilaran airport around 11am we decided that we will only concentrate on tourist attractions located in Panglao besides our accomodation is also in that area. Another thing is, we wanted to take a rest early because one my friends came all the way from Vigan before the night of our departure. Imagine the 7 -8 hours travel by bus. Our driver that day insisted on having the country side tour but we wanted otherwise. After he made few calls he agreed that we do the Panglao tour instead.

We were able to visit: Bohol Bee Farm,
                                  Hinagdanan Cave
                                  Dauis Church
                                  Panglao church
Then we went straight to our accomodation in Paragayo Resort located in Alona.

2nd day is countryside tour day. First stop , Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella, then we had our lunch at the famous Loboc River Cruise. While we were at the cruise it started to rain until we reached the Chocolate hills . We didn't even got out of the car when we arrived at the butterfly farm . It poured even more while we were at the Man Made Forest in Bilar that its impossible to get a good shoot but we still went out of the car..hehe!! We were already drenched when we reached Baclayon Church. It really poured down heavily that day , i thought we couldn't get past the flood and got stucked in the road for a couple of minutes.

I think any tour would not be complete without buying souvenirs and so we went to Aproniana Gift shop on our way home.

Good thing the following day(3rd day) it did'nt rained, its our sea tour, island hopping, dolphin watching and snorkelling. We were not able to go to the virgin island because all my companions were afraid of the big waves, take note that we were there a couple of days after the tsunami in japan.

It's almost 1pm when we got back in alona , we wanted to go to chocolate hills and man made forest again but after an hour it rained again so we just stayed in the resort and had dinner later at the beach.

Last day in bohol. We asked our driver to pass by  at the Blood Compact site then off we go to Cebu via supercat.
