I’ve been traveling recently but only within Cebu because I only have limited time and budget. So even if Bohol is just so near Cebu I haven’t been there yet not until recently. Everytime someone knows that I haven’t been to Bohol they’re really shocked and they can’t seem to believe it (as if it’s just an hour drive, HELLO!?). So, anyway, I then decided to go there with my friends.
Before we go there we haven’t had any plans as to where to go and what to ride etc., we just planned to go there, that’ it. So on the planned day, we went to the port and bought a ticket going to Tubigon Bohol not knowing where to go when we reach there. Good thing I saw a blog post about bohol and the places to go to in bohol.
When we reach Tubigon port in Bohol we really don’t know where to go. We don’t even know that Tubigon Bohol is far from Tagbilaran. So we ride a bus from Tubigon to Tagbilaran which only cost us 50php only. From Tagbilaran, we ride a tricycle going to Dumaloan Beach which was mentioned on the Blog. The Blogger said that it’s nice there and he is really right. The pace was so beautiful that you can really compare it to Boracay. The sand is so white and the place is so clean.
On our 2nd day, we went to other places in bohol like the famous Chocolate hills, we visited the famous Tarsier and all the other places.
We wanted to try also the bike zipline but we were not able to try it because it’s raining. But, hopefully soon. 🙂
I don’t know if Cebuanos realize this but Cebu is really rich in natural resources and that there are a lot of places to go to when your in Cebu. If your a nature lover or someone who really loves the beach, Cebu is the place to be. Aside from beautiful faces, there are also a lot of nice beaches and resorts, there are amazingly stunning falls, hot springs and a lot more.
One place that you need to visit in Cebu is the whale watching in Oslob. You got to experience swimming with the whales and have a picture taken with them underwater.
Price is 500php per person which is really worth it. If you don’t know how to swim, there’s no need to worry because you will be provided with life jacket. Although it’s really better if you know how to swim so you can go down the water to get a better view of the whales. But you can still go down the water and just hold the the side part (I dont know what that part is called. hehe) of the outrigger boat – or in our language it’s called “Bangka”- just like what we did.
If you don’t have an underwater camera, you can rent an underwater camera there for 500php. After you use it you can have them transfer the file to you SD card or phone, whatever memory card you have.
Another place that you can visit which is just few kilometers away from there is the Tumalog falls.
The place is really VERY nice and I’m not exaggerating. I was really stunned. We’ll maybe because it’s my first time, but, regardless, the place is really super nice.
