Have you been in bohol?

chocolate hills - Chocolate Hills is an unusual geological formation in Bohol, Philippines. It is composed of around 1,268 perfectly cone-shaped hills of about the same size, spread over an area of more than 50 square kilometres (20 sq mi). They are covered in green grass that turns brown during the dry season.

Ive been in Bohol last month and i can say it is one of the best place in the Philippines for vacation. If you like beaches, nature, oldest churches, river cruise, rare animals, good food and friendly and warm people. Well, this is a good place to try. Honestly i want to go back in that place over and over again. I love bohol..

bohol - chocolate hills of Bohol
WoW! Me and my wife would love to go to Bohol and we've already made plans. It's just that we don't have enough money yet for that trip. Also, she's already pregnant and we're saving up for our first baby. Maybe we'll go there in a couple of years, when we're ready. I've heard great deals about Bohol so we'll definitely go there when we get the chance.

You are right cathya, bohol is also an affordable place to visit, for mostly they only have donation box for every tourist spot you visit. I love to back in that place again. Thanks for the respond.

Yup been there about a couple of years ago and I too have loved that place. It has a mixture of the old and the new. I love the beaches and its natural surrounding and all. One of it highlight is the Chocolate hills and their Tarsier. They are the two things you should be looking at when in Bohol.

I was in Bohol January 2008 and of all the places me and my husband have been in the Philippines, we both agreed that Bohol is the best. We had a great time at Panglao Island Nature Resort. We experienced the river cruise and the sumptuous food. And you are right with the people, they are warm.

I haven't been to Bohol, but Im planning to go there. They really say that Bohol is very great. But these days bohol has really big problem. The government their is making a resolution to prohibit the entrepreneurs to use the tarssiers in any other way.

Been there for thrice already. The place is nice and really recommended for relaxation. I like their countryside tour. At the end of the day, we stayed in Panglao and enjoyed the white beachline. It's worth the price and it's good that we were able to arrange a cheaper transportation instead of paying per pax on a travel agency. It really matters if you plan ahead and do some online research.
