Bohol

Thinking of going somewhere for the summer?

How about a short weekend adventure?

Why not hop on a ferry and explore the beautiful island of Bohol.

Getting there

Bohol is approximately 2 hours away from the port of Cebu. By ferry you can take the Cebu to Tagbilaran route, my friends and I made sure to get the early morning trip so we can maximize the activities we can do during the day.

Must Taste

A must try in Bohol, is the Bee Farm salad where there are actual flowers in the salad! Believe me it might not sound as appealing to everyone but it is delicious. Everything in the salad is hand picked from their gardens and even its dressing is made in-house. Topped it off with some fresh Lemongrass Juice and you have yourself a refreshing meal.

 

Accommodation

Instead of checking in a traditional hotel, we searched for local BnBs lucky we found a really nice one in Baclayon. Sally’s house is a modern take of a traditional “Bahay Kubo” which also drew inspirations from Indonesian and Mexican architecture. It was such a paradise to stay in.

Beyond the usual Tourist Spots

One of the reasons why we opted to stay in Baclayon instead of Panglao is because of our plans to go dolphin watching the next day. Sally was kind enough to help us arrange our trip.

Look at the dolphins!

Travel Tip:

When travelling in groups it is more convenient to arrange for transportation ahead of time especially when you’re planning to visit various sites spread out across your destination. It helps you maximize the time you spend at each site, rather than in traveling.

Just be sure to look for the best deals!
