Favorite thing: Many different parts in Bohol that love most especially the white sand beaches, the blue clear water and the green river. I love tarsiers as well:=) Chocolate Hills is one of the tourist attractions and its in the top of the hill. Its really nice when you can see the views around the area especially when you are already in the top of the hill.
Fondest memory: The big snake, I couldnt imagine how my sister tried to put the snake in her shoulder...its funny her reaction but scary things, its a good experience anyway.

Favorite thing: The best sunset in Bohol I had in Baclayon - that's small town very close to Tagbilaran which is famous for its old church from coral stone (one of the oldest in Philippines) and it's also starting point for watching dolphines.
Fondest memory: The best time to be in Baclayon is for sunset but you shouldn't miss the church before (or later) - before it's better because there will be beautiful light shining through colored glass of the windows and you can take some very nice photos inside then.
I loved that golden color of the sky just few minutes before sun disappeared. There was plenty of other people who enjoyed the same view from the pier in front of the church - but it wasn't too crowded.

Favorite thing: Green is prevailing color of Bohol. Its many rice fields and forests have good feel for your eyes and soul; in the rice fields you can see plenty of birds searching for food; when there's water in the field they reflect the sky or neighbouring landscape.
Fondest memory: I loved going away from the coastline into interior of Bohol. Plenty of beautiful sights begin between Loay and Loboc. See these rice fields on the photo - on overcast day they look so fresh. Bohol is full of idyllic scenes when you move between towns. It's easy to explore them because you can use public transport to get around.
One feels very good in environment like that - I hope they will keep future Bohol green - it can be place for excellent eco tourism sites.

Favorite thing: The place is of full of amazing place (Loboc river & chocolate hills) to visit unique creature (the tarsier), protected beaches and tha relaxing BBC.
Fondest memory: Bohol a place to visit. The destinations are endless and the day would end up without noticing it. Everyday there’s a new place to explore and exciting things to discover. My 6 days stay at Bohol was full of fun and memorable experience. From day one, city tour (this includes the Tarsier and Bee farm) our day two is spent on dolphin watching; Balicasag adventure and the BBC visit. On our fourth day, we have the Magaso falls & Hinagdanan cave. For the fourth day we visited Cebu City, on for the sixth we decided to revisit the Bee Farm and BBC.

Favorite thing: Bohol is such a small island you can go around all it's major tourist land attractions in one day. of course its beaches and diving areas is another thing...this probably needs a weekend for you to enjoy the wonderful beaches, reefs aand dolfins :)

Favorite thing: Hi, been in Bohol just last week and I'm having so much fun with my friends and colleagues. I would have to say that 8k is good enough though.. because we stayed at Bohol Beach Club. Yes it's quite expensive but i think it's worth it. The place is SWEET! The beach is FABULOUS!
We had a great tour guide/driver for our tour, Spencer. We actually got his number from one forum in the net and his got the best recommendations amongst all and he really is! I don't know if I'm allowed to post numbers here but you may visit his website. It's www.boholspencertours.com.
You may also get some driver at the airport and may probably get a cheaper ones but i think it would be very risky. Taxis are also available in the City but you have to pay double of the meter if you go outside the City. Tricycles are also cheap but it's going to consume a lot of time because they run slow.
I Say Bohol is blessed with nature and of good, friendly and hospitable people but... NO NIGHT LIFE. Enjoy though!

Favorite thing: If you want to truly experience Bohol, you should stay there for 3 days. On the first day, take the countryside tour. This will take you to see Blood compact site, Baclayon church, Tarsier sanctuary, Chocolate hills, hanging bridge, Loboc river lunch cruise, python, higdanganan cave, souvenir shopping. On the second day, wake up really early (about 5am) and go whale and dolphin watching then go snorkeling at balicasag island. If it's low tide, you may also go to other islands. Pamilican island is farther away but if you have the time, you might want to go there as well. The boat ride is 1500 to 2000 pesos. You may opt to come back to Panglao island before lunch then leave for another countryside tour and see the other half of Bohol. Go to Bohol bee farm, Mag Aso falls, Sagbayan peak, Punta Cruz watch tower. On the third day, you may want to just stay put and enjoy the beach. It is better if you stay for 4 days so that you have more time to enjoy the beach or go snorkeling or diving. Please do not pollute Bohol. Throw your trashes properly. Do not bring home live sea creatures. Respect the environment.
Fondest memory: The whale & dolphin watching was the highlight of my trip. The loboc river cruise will be the second highlight of my trip.

Favorite thing: Just like any other tourist destinations, August to November is considered a low season for Bohol. For Bohol, it actually means low turn-out for local tourists as I noticed that there are still foreigners, mostly Europeans, in Bohol, more specially in the beaches. I suppose that they are more into diving than beachcombers. Besides, local tourists do not constitute the bulk of Bohol visitors even during peak season. Most of the time, the local tourists are part of corporate sponsored seminars/conferences.
This month, I went to Cabilao and re-visited Loboc and Panglao and I would say that that it is less crowded but it could hardly be considered a low season.
This is also the time of the year considered as low tide season. Even from the plane, I could see the receding water revealing the white coast line of Panglao Island. With the low tide season, it means less clean sandy beaches. The small rocks which usually are kept hidden by the water and can only be felt when venturing far from the beach are not exposed. The garden of sea weeds are not protruding leaving the image of unkempt sandbars.
I was not disappointed though as I have learned to appreciate and love Bohol as a whole. As I discovered in this recent trip, I was able to explore and enjoy certain things, with or without the beautiful fine white sandy beaches.
It was never my intention to present a negative side of the "dirty" beaches. Rather, I hope to impart that whether we like or not, it is only nature which can control nature.

Favorite thing: Peanut Kisses is one of the favorites from Bohol, you can buy it cheaper at BQ Mall than other places in bohol, for me i bought Star Kisses at BQ Mall, the small ones costs only P7.

Favorite thing: A lot of reviews has been said about Bohol. But I like to acknowledged also Tata Rabe and her company for the warm welcome and service they rendered during our stay in Bohol. Tata Rabe became synonymous when it comes to Bohol travel (especially here in VT).
She constantly get in touch with me (thru Chikka and email here in Doha) and with my wife ( thru SMS in Manila) while preparing and finalizing our accommodation and country tour. She also updated us with the current weather of Bohol prior to our departure.
Actually her real name is Lilibeth Rabe. She is famously called by the name of TATA.
I would definitely recommend her for your travel needs in Bohol.
