A Taste of the Chocolate Hills, Bohol

A Taste of the Chocolate Hills, Bohol

One of the few things that I remember about Bohol in my grade school’s Philippine geography subject is the Chocolate Hills. This is probably the most popular tourist attraction in Bohol apart from the Philippine Tarsier. From my reading, there are more than 1260 hills scattered across a total land area of approximately 50 square kilometers. It was the summer of 2010 when we last visited them, and although it was my second time to be there, I still felt the excitement. You’re probably wondering, why are they called the…

A Lovely and Yummy Experience, Bohol Bee Farm

A Lovely and Yummy Experience, Bohol Bee Farm

You’d have to excuse me in some of the photos. Every time I am with my family, the “views” or the “background” photos usually consist of our faces. Not sure if it’s a family thing or if it’s a Filipino thing. Maybe both. 🙂 Okay, on with my thoughts… I’ve never considered myself as a foodie. Why?

Food trips are always included in my itinerary, wherever I may be. When we went to Bohol in the summer of 2010, apart from visiting the infamous Tarsier and the Chocolate Hills (post – coming soon!), we decided to do one of Bohol’s classic tourist activity: the Long River Cruise, which is a cruise along the Loboc River. Along with other tourists (around 30+ of them), we boarded a “floating restaurant” which is actually made out of a platform supported by two boats. The tourists are set to enjoy a…

A Close Encounter: The Philippine Tarsier, Bohol

A Close Encounter: The Philippine Tarsier, Bohol

I was inspired to share my close encounter with this special creature after reading a post about wandering monkeys. This special creature is the Philippine tarsier. 🙂 My not-so-recent latest trip to Bohol was back in 2010, which is what I normally would call a vacation within a vacation. For most Filipinos, Bohol is synonymous to the Chocolate Hills and the Tarsier. We were taught about this in our grade school days. Thank goodness I was mentally awake at that time! Although it was my 2nd time to be there,…
