Every person needs to relax and have a great vacation after a period of hard work. That has become my mindset since I started working as a seafarer. To spend quality time with my loved ones is my main priority during vacation. It is also my goal to explore the beauty of my country, the Philippines, every time I’m away from my work. By choosing to explore the Philippines, I’m not just learning and appreciating my own culture, but also in my own little way I am able to help in boosting our local tourism. For this year’s vacation destination we have decided to visit the island of Bohol.
Bohol is located in the Central Visayas region of the Philippines. It is well-known for its Chocolate Hills which is estimated to be at least 1,260 hills. It is also home of the Philippine tarsiers, which is an endangered species of tarsier endemic to the Philippines. Bohol is also a popular tourist destination for its beaches, resorts, and diving sites.
If you are planning to visit Bohol, I suggest you look for affordable tour package that includes transportation, accommodation, and different activities. It is much easier and sometimes cheaper than going there on your own.You can also continue reading this post and learn valuable information and tips during our Bohol escapade.
Here’s a summary of what we did during our Bohol vacation. This can be a simple itinerary for your Bohol tour. Modify it at your own convenience. Take note also that our entire Bohol experience was assisted by our local friends at Bohol from hotel reservation, tours, and transportation. So if you want to eliminate the hassles and troubles of doing your trip on your own, then I suggest you find a suitable Bohol tour package that fits your budget.
