In my humble opinion of someone who only got to know 1% of the Philippines, I have to say that Bohol the best place over there and it is the reason I’m in love with the country.
In only 2 to 3 days, Bohol manage to win my heart like no other place did. Beautiful beaches, nice food, great landscape, amazing and friendly people, outstanding options of things to do, great night life by the sea and most important of them all: has an amazing show waiting for you to see. Check it out the video here:
But besides this amazing event, Bohol has much to offer when we’re talking about nature and landscape.
One of the main attractions over there are the Chocolate Hills, that have this name because when the foliage of the forest turns brown, look like chocolate for real. November is not the best season for that but still is one of the most beautiful scenarios you can imagine.
You can see them one this amazing park they have it over there and besides the Chocolate Hills, they have several other options of entertainment.
Another cool thing to experience on the same place is the snake collection they have it over there. I’m not a big fan of keeping animals inside a cage, but unfortunately this happens a lot over there and from all the cases I’ve seen it, this were the best one.
If you love to see animals without any cage, the place for you to check it out is the Tarsier Conservation Area. If you are not familiar with what a tarsier is, I’ll explain briefly after the photos.
And to explain better what a tarsier is, I think nothing better than Ze Frank, right?
Besides the tarsier, you can check out some local food and souvenirs on the surroundings, very much approved by me and my hunger!
After the tarsier, you’ll most likely to pass by the amazing Bilar Man-made Forest and it’s story is wonderful.
The Bilar man-made forest was part of a bigger reforestation project that was created in response to the alarming deforestation in the Loboc watershed. This was caused by the destructive slash and burn farming system called kaingin, which was done by the locals who sought refuge in the forested area during World War II. The project started in 1947 and consists in almost 20.000 hectares of land and mahogany trees.
