Touring Bohol Part 1: The Plan
For our first vacation trip this year, my wife and I decided to go to Bohol and tour the sites there. Bohol is located in the middle of the Philippines and is the home of the tarsiers and more than 1,200 Chocolate Hills.
Planning for the trip is quite easy than you think. You just have to find the suitable package tour for you. It would be easier than commuting your way to all of the tourist sites so save yourself the hassle and just look for a package tour.
Bohol package tours usually lasts 3 days complete with the accommodation and transport service to and from the airport as well as the island hopping via motorized boat. Entrance fee for the sites are also included.
Our point of contact was Mang Boy (09156517933) who arranged everything for us for only P15,000. This includes the city and island tours, hotel accommodation for 2, boat tour and transport to and from the airport. All our tours are exclusive to us by the way so we control how much time we have to spend on each place.
Here’s a sample itinerary for a tour in Bohol:
DAY 1 – Bohol Country Side Tour
- Blood Compact site
- Baclayon Church and Museum
- Python and Tarsiers
- Loboc River Cruise (lunch included)

DAY 3 – Panglao Island Tour

We had 4 days to spend in Bohol so the 4th day will be just for swimming and enjoying our resort. I’ll be going into detail how each of our day went in the next few parts.
