“Weekend at Bohol, Philippies”
I had a great weekend spent at Bohol located in the Southern part of the Philippines. It was a birthday treat for my son (8 years old). I chose this place mainly because it is one of the major tourist destination in the country with its beautiful beaches, great sceneries with historical touch.
Where We Stay: Flushing Meadows Resort - it is a luxury resort and i like it. It is located in Panglao Island. during our visit there were only two guests including us booked in the big resort so it feels like a private one.. It's very good to spend with family with kids.. it is very spacious, clean & very nice facilities . Food though is not that great, it's kind of expensive and not that exceptional.. There are parks and pool for the kids, and there is nice pool for adult as well...It's a bit far from Tagbilaran city. the resort has free service going to the city every 2pm. then going back to the resort, you can rent a tricycle going back to the resort for 200 pesos... i was able to lower the price to 150 :).
How many days: we stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights, all worth it
Tours : we did the countryside tours which include visit to : Chocolate Hills, Lunch at Loboc River, Tarsier conservation place, zoo, Baclayon Church, Man made forest and many more
I would recommend that you try the Dolphin watching and Diving at Balicasag ISland in Bohol. It is a must on my return :)..
