Not sure why this is a tourist spot. To be fair, there was a good purpose to it. To prevent landslides.

A beautiful and very protected forest but not a trip in itself. Thankfully, you should see it on your way to the bamboo bridges or the Tarsier conservation area.

Driving through this man-made forest is wonderful! The mahogany trees that line the sides of the street give a feeling of being truly one with nature. The sun becomes partially hidden, and the atmosphere turns cold once you are in the area. One cannot help...More

The story behind how this came to be made is interesting and adds to the attraction and it's nice to stop briefly to take some photo's, but essentially this is a sight to see on your way to somewhere else. It's not something to specifically...More

The Bilar man-made forest is a beautiful scenic route that stretches for approximately two kilometres in the municipality of Loboc. The forest consists mostly of mahogany trees that have beautiful coloured trunks that range from a deep dark red to a marble white. The trees...More

I'm a born-and-raised local of Bohol who now live overseas and have done a few travelling in various places. When I was little and not really much travelled, it's a rarity to see tall mahogany trees beside a neatly paved road in Bohol. It's enchanting...More

It’s an interesting site to see although people seem to like taking the “typical” picture right in the middle of the road which is frustrating for drivers. However it is just more or less a wood/forest like many others. There is a 1km path you...More

It’s gorgeous to drive thru. We did go in and while it was pretty, I doubt we would have lost sleep if we hadn’t pulled over and gone in. However, if you’re driving by, you might as well stop to check it out.

Ferry to Bohol (8 Replies)
Hi, I will be reaching Cebu on a Saturday morning 4am, provided the flight is not delayed. May I know what are the chances of getting a ferry ticket in Cebu to Bohol for the 6am or any ferry before 10am when I reach the ferry terminal? Once I reach Bohol, do you think I can cover all the places below if I reach Bohol at mid-day? 1. Chocolate Hills 2. Traiser Santuary in Corella 3. Loboc Hanging Bridge 4. Mahogany Forest 5. Dumaluan or Alano Beach 6. Bee Farm Thanks.

Do you mean can you see all those places and still be in time for a fast ferry back to Cebu City same day? If so, the answer is yes, so long as you don't spend too much time relaxing on the beach. No way to tell if you will get a ticket for 6am ferry but very good chance of getting a ticket on any fast ferry before 10am and probably 100% chance of getting a ticket on a slow ferry from pier 3 to Tubigon on Bohol.

Planning on a day tour to go to main attractions of Bohol - Chocolate Hills, Loboc River Cruise, Tarsier, Mahogany forest, etc. - from an Alona beach resort. Is it better to book the tour online or it's easy, convenient and cheaper to just get it from Panglao? Roughly how much are day tours from an Alona beach resort?

June 16. Take a fastcraft going to Tagbilaran City. However if you want to sight see some places, you may want to take a catamaran roro going to the port of Tubigon, Bohol. Travel by van/bus from Tubigon to Tagbilaran City. Explore Tagbilaran City. If you want clubbing experience, go to Metro Centre Hotel. Their disco pub has been new renovated and its the best on the island. June 17. Day trip to Panglao. If you to relax on the beach, there are really less expensive resorts along Libaong...More
