As I've already mentioned in my introductory post of this province, this is where I first engaged into a "no-parental trip"; a trip along with my friends; the "I'm-finally-on-my-own" trip; or whatever you feel like calling it.
This Bohol experience also started the yearly singles out-of-town.
Itinerary for the City Tour:
Tarsier Conservation Area
Loboc River Cruise
Loboc Man-Made Forest
Tarsier Conservation area is where I was able to see the world's smallest primate, the Tarsier. Upon arriving to the conservation area, one must pay an environmental fee of 50php, if my memory serves me right. Then the group will be held in the orientation are for the do's and don'ts while walking around. Flash is a no no for these primates. After a few more minutes of waiting (probably waiting for the first group to move ahead the trail), our group was then given a leaflet and was released to the Tarsier trail.
There's no time limit for visitors and most of the time you'll have a hard time spotting one. If you're lucky to spot one, then more or less there's already a group crowding that spot. You cannot, under whatever circumstances, make loud noise and use flashes. These things disturb the Tarsiers, which by the way are night creatures. I actually pity these animals being swarmed by a lot of people during the day.
The man-made forest, a dense forest, stretching to 2kms, made up of red and white mahogany trees is located along the border of Loboc and Bilar towns. For history and other info about this kindly refer to Bohol Blog. This is a good stop to take some eerie pictures specially at night. But in broad daylight, you can just sit at the side of the road and look around and listen as the wind sways the trees around you. Be careful though with passing vehicles!
Baclayon church is one of the famed churches in Bohol. I wasn't able to go and see around the inside of the church because of certain circumstances. It was one of the vastly devastated churches when a 7.2 earthquake struck the province in 2013.
Bohol is famous for its hills that turns to green during rainy season and chocolate brown during summer season. It makes you really wonder how little you are to this world eh? But it's a sight to behold. Sadly, it's also one of the heavily affected area during the earthquake. Viewing deck was a wreck as well as some hills was affected.
Tourism for Bohol is still recuperating (as far as I know) but even after the earthquake, I guarantee that this place is still one of the best places everyone must go to.
