Man-made forest!

You can just drive-by the site if you're visiting from the chocolate hills! You can ask the driver to stop if you want to take photos as well.

This man made forest was alright to see since we were going through anyway on our way to The Chocolate Hills, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it alone.

Worth the long drive for a quick trip. Take some great photos a la Taylor Swift's Out of the Woods ;) If I had more time, I'd probably stay longer on the roadside to relax and reflect.

This is a very refreshing place when go to Countryside Tour. You will pass through this road going to your destinations. You can't afford to stop just to take photos of the beauty of this place. Must visit place!

it is our 1st visit to Bohol, and we were in awe of this beautiful man-made forest. It is a "must see" on your list. The tour guide ask us to stand in the middle of the road (when there was no traffic) and snap a photo. Awesome !!
