Go to Dao bus terminal (located around 2 km north of Tagbilaran city center, tricycle will cost 40 - 50 PhP), and take a bus going to Carmen. Ask the cashier to drop you at Choclate Hills junction ( it's an app. 2 and 1/2 hour's ride), and get your ticket (50 PhP), then you can walk the remaining 1... More

A ferry ride from Cebu to the island of Bohol is worth the trip to this simple but beautiful island. A winding trip up the mountain through beautiful jungle you finally come to the chocolate hills. Perfectly shaped nature at its finest. Easy to get a guide as they are lined up at the ferry terminal to take you anywhere... More

We hired a motorbike and rode up to the Chocolate Hills from Loboc, upon recommendation from our hotel. If you get a tour, it is more expensive, and you are stuck to their itinerary. Realistically, you just get there, see the hills (which you really wouldn't spend more than 10-20 minutes looking at) and then head back. This in mind,... More

The viewdeck can get very crowded because of the large number of people going up and down the single staircase. Crowd control could be improved. But the Chocolate Hills...absolutely beautiful.

This is an excellent opportunity to observed some rare limestone geometry on the way from the Tarsier sanctuary. It's a cheap and illustrous opportunity.

Chocolate hills is nice indeed but it is quite far from Tagbilaran (it would take an hour or so).Basically people arrive, walk up the hill, discover the view, make selfies and go down. In any case, once you are in Bohol, it is worth going there but don't travel all around the Philippines just to come and see the hills.

2014 Philippines Bohol Chocolate Hills road trip. I decide to book a 3 day tour package with Paul Incon tours and it was worth NEARLY every penny. At first I was very apprehensive as he wanted a $100 deposit to secure my reservation. Not that I did not trust him, I do not really trust ANYONE, that is how you... More

I liked the panoramic view from the top of the highest hill, but I found more charming the contrast in the landscape between the rice fields and the small hills on the way to the attraction.

There needs to be more interpretative info at the viewing platform but it's a remarkable sight. Wonderful topography and it shouldn't be missed.
