    Delicious Seafood, Bohol, Philippines
    4 more images

    Food is an all time favorite for all Filipinos, especially in Bohol.

    You can find many different restaurants in the city area and along the beach. You'll find meals in different price ranges depending on which restaurant you visit.

    Most of the restaurants have fresh and delicious grilled seafood, fish, squids, calamares, shrimps etc and they r right along the waterfront giving you a good view of the blue waters and a whiff open sea breeze.

    I love to spend long time by enjoying those yummy seafoods, very recommendable ... :)

    Cloak available at the entrance

    A friend during the Bohol trip was wearing a strapless summer dress....and immediately when we are approaching the Baclayon church...our tourguide said that they have a law there ...that women should not wear strapless clothes or mini skirt when entering the church or they can enter the church given that they will wear a cloak available for free at the church side entrance......

    Transport for Bohol tour

    by melek02 Written Mar 16, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The most popular activity to do in Bohol island is island tour.
    I want to recommend good rent a car in Tagbilaran town (recommended also by lonely planet :).
    I arrived to Tagbilaran by speed boat from Cebu in the evening and the only one travel agency or rent a car I could find at 8 pm in the town was NF transport and tours.
    They have good prices, I have paid for car 1 800 Php (40 USD) including driver and petrol, actually they charge this money for 8 hours and if you will use it more then 8 hours you have pay little bit extra, but 8 hours more then enough to see all sight in Bohol.
    The car was new (2-3 years old, which is considered new for Philippines), very clean with English speaking driver who knew all the sites, and he arrived to my hotel earlier then expected time (you will understand the time issue then you will arrive to Philippines haha).
    I can highly recommend them.
    You can find their visit card in attached picture.

    I found the people of Bohol to be very inviting, and seem to enjoy life.

    I felt very safe there, even with my 2-year-old daughter wandering around. The people of Bohol respect tourists for the most part. They know that tourists help improve their financial situation.

    A few people there will treat you like a walking ATM, but not so many.

    There are some hawkers on the beach, but not nearly as many as somewhere like Bali or Phuket. They are not aggressive, and understand the meaning of 'no.'

    Smile at the locals to win their hospitality

    Boholanos are generally friendly people, don't be surprised if they smile at you. Smile back and win their hospitality.

    Children are naturally curious about camera-toting strangers. Ask them to pose for you and let them see their pictures. You will win their parent's warm hospitality.

    Children can be curious about your food. Share something with them. I gave the hotdogs from my hotel's packed breakfast to our cook's kid and her eyes glistened. Of course, her mother warmed up and gave me discount in her cooking charge.

    At Balicasag Island, the fisherman's wife can cook lunch for you. Don't expect 5-star service in the island. But you can expect 5-star customer relations if you're not bossy, but kind to her.
    Souvenir peddlers at the island are open to haggling for discounts. If you're nice to them, you might yet receive a free give-away. 2 vendors gave me friendship bands, and they personally put them on my ankle.
