Nice place to spend five minute, take in the views and make a few funny pictures. Choose wisely where to park as there are much quieter parts of the road with equally good, if not better views.

Not a destination but a must see on a Bohol tour. Add this to a chocolate hills tour and see several things on the way there and back to Tagbilaran. Be sure to take your picture in the road as is traditionally done.

Sure, it's preferable to an expanse of concrete but this is a monoculture and hence far from my favourite type of greenery. We didn't even stop on our way back from Chocolate Hills. It is, however, verdant and one could obtain some respite from the...More

This beautiful man-made Forest appears along the main road between Loboc and Carmen - the famous Chocolate Hills. The road isn’t too busy in the morning hours allowing for some great captures. Be careful in the toad if posing for pictures as trucks and cars...More

If you’re visiting Chocolate Hills then drive through this as well. We went there by motorcycle which I definitely recommend since you experience the nature much better then by car.

We went through the Mahogany Forest in way to Chocolate Hills. Our tour guide did not mention it. However I recognized by the pictures I've seen and the fact that the trees here are significantly taller than any other area in our Bohol tour. We...More

This place is on the way to Chocolate Hills and Tarsier Conservation Park. It is nice to know that the trees were planted by the Boy Scouts back on 1960's.

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
