Bohol

Mabuhay Pilipinas!

For any first time traveller in the Philippines, Bohol is always a must-place to visit as this bountiful province of Visayas is a condensed version of the country.

Bohol, the must-visit island !

Bohol is known for its coral reefs and unusual geological formations. Dive into the colorful underwater & be mesmerized by the famous Sprawling Chocolate Hills.
Spoiler alert: they are not really made of Chocolate…
In Bohol, you can also find the smallest monkey called the ‘Tarsier’. Locals call it ‘mamag’! But be careful, they are very sensitive creatures under extinction. Do not touch them or else, they would give themselves death…

So, whether you are looking to get a tan at white sand beaches, like in Alona Beach, to simply indulge on a relaxing river cruise, or conquer thrilling adventures, on squads in Panglao , don’t hesitate to put Bohol on your travel list!

There are two places to watch tarsiers on Bohol Island, the Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary in Canapnapan (next to Corella) and the Tarsier Conservation Area in Loboc. We highly advice you to go to Canapnapan which is an official foundation that protects tarsiers who are in total freedom.
