A super fun Bohol tour

Bohol: The Island of the Famous Chocolate Hills

I’m so proud of myself that after a long year of dreaming to visit Bohol, the long dream has ended because last December 27 – 29 2010 together with my workmates, we went to Bohol for a tour. From Cebu port to Tagbilaran port were very excited of the beautiful spots that we will be visiting.

On day one that was December 27 we arrived in Tagbilaran port, since we already have a tour guide contacted before the tour it’s really easy for us to visit those nice spots there, by the way thanks to Incon Bohol Tours specially to our tour guides, Paul Incon the owner and to Gio our tour guide for the second day and the one who get us in our hotel where we’re staying on the third day, I don’t know his name. On that day too, from port Paul bring us to Hinagdanan Cave, you can see our photo below.

It’s really amazing cave, theirs a water pool inside which is deep and the structures of the stone were very nice. After here, we go straight to our hotel room which was very nice too, I hope I could sleep back there.

On the second day of our tour, it’s time for our country side tour, we went to Baclayon Church, Butterfly sanctuary, Bayoyong, blood compact monument, to a mini zoo were two big snakes were there, then to Loboc River for our lunch, after that we take Zip Line passing across the Loboc River, tarsier sanctuary, man-made forest,  ATV ride, then Chocolate Hills. The second day was really fun, I really have a great day seeing those beautiful places in Bohol. Pictures on our second day tour below.

That’s the end of our tiring second day country side tour, and on our third day of tour I think it’s more exciting because we rises early to have a dolphin watching, it’s my first time in my entire life to see a real dolphin. See photo below.

 Dolphin watching at sea of Panglao, the photo was not that clear or the dolphins image was very small because it’s very hard to capture the energetic dolphins. They’re many and they’re playing as you can see on the photo.

Snorkeling in Balicasag Island. This island was really nice, lots of corals and lots of fish. I’m feeding them with bread so that they will go nearer to me.

 It’s me, diving on the sea of Balicasag Island.

 In the photo above, it’s me in Virgin Island, it’s a beautiful sand bar Island.

At Panglao Beach, we take a swim after arriving from our Island hopping. Very nice beach promise.

After that we went back to our room because it’s already time to go back to Cebu. The experienced was really amazing and I’m so thankful that once in my life I fulfill one of my dream, to visit Bohols beautiful spots and that experienced will remain forever in my memories. Bohol was a very nice place to be with, quite, simple but has lots of beautiful places. 

If I were you I will also visit the places where we’ve been. It would be easier if you will hire a tour agency like Incon Bohol Tours for you to have an unforgettable experienced too.

Friendly Giant Whale Sharks – Oslob, Cebu

Have you ever seen a giant but friendly whale sharks? If not, then it’s your time to see it in person, touch it like your friend. Yes, like your friend because this giant whale sharks were not dangerous instead they’re very friendly to their guest friends who will come to meet them.

Want to meet the friendly giant whale sharks? Well it’s our pleasure to introduce to you, the proud of Oslob, Cebu, the TUKI or the whale sharks. If you want to see this giant friendly whale sharks, simply from Cebu City you just have to take a ride for a minimum of 3 hours on Sunrays or Ceres bus liner and drop at Tan-awan, Oslob, Cebu. The fair for the trip is Php140+, I prefer Sunrays bus for they are from Oslob too so they are much more familiar with the place.  And then when you get there, their is an entrance fee of Php100 and a fee for the bangka, don’t worry it’s not that much however you will really enjoy meeting the friendly whale shark. By the way, this giant whale shark is eating “hipon or uyap” or “small shrimps” so it’s better that you have it before riding the bangka so that the tuki or whale shark will be happy on your meet-ups. Enjoy and don’t forget to take some photos for souvenir.  Have a nice trip to Oslob, Cebu, Philippines.!
