Bohol, is a very special place to my life
Since I have a work already, I make it sure that at least once a year; me and my family make it sure to have a vacation in Bohol. My mother has a house there, we visit our grandmother and our relatives. I love going home in my mother's house because of the place itself! Truly a gift of nature. Year ago, I brought with me my office mate. i toured her around the tourist spots since it was her first time to go to Bohol. I did organized the places we will be going to, because we will be only commuting. And it was more fun actually riding in a bus! LOL!! Because you got to see the natives Boholanos, and I am having fun listening to them while they were having conversation because mainly of their natural accent. They have this accent that Boholanos really speak, but they are very friendly to be fair with them.
The time that me and my travel buddy Cobo will be going to Bohol, this was after our duty because were night shift then. No sleeps at all actually! LOL. We were so excited! Went to the Cebu Port Authority by taxi to lesser the time of traveling going to the port. As we arrived at the port, we headed right away to the ticket booth and paid our indiviual fares plus the terminal fees!Terminal fee costs P 10.00 per head plus the boat fare costs P 200 for a fast craft that takes an hour to travel going to Tubigon Port
Going to Tagbilaran City, we road a bus and paid P 50.00 for the fare and takes an hour to get there. I already contacted my cousin, who is living in the city to be our tour guide.Luckily for me, she is always ready to go. Thanks to her!
As soon as we arrived at the Dao Bus Terminal at Tagbilaran City, we went to Island City Mall, the biggest mall in the city, to meet my cousin there. As we saw each other already, I did the plans where we will be touring first, to avoid the waste of time. I decided to go around first at the famous Baclayon Church, can be reached through jeepney and we paid P 8.00 each just a 15 minutes ride from the city. We stopped over at the beautiful church of Baclayon and got ready with our camera! LOL!!! We also went to their leisure park, and took unlimited pictures. After Baclayon, we headed to the famous statue "Blood Compact"! and then went to Dauis, Bohol, made a stopped over at their church. I love the churches of Bohol not only because they are old ones but also the structures of it. Take note, we toured this spots by means of riding in a tricycle! cool isn't it? haha..... That was the last place, we visited for our day 1 in Bohol, because we will be heading home to my mother's hometown located in Sevilla, Bohol a 2 hour travel by bus. We rode the last trip as always and arrived at 8 pm. I love going in this place because, aside from the fresh air, the cold weather, I always miss the foods and the famous brown rice of course! I love the way how my uncle cooks! Thanks to him for always giving us a good accommodation everytime I get home
It's day 2 for our tour to Bohol, and it was Sunday, so meaning we will be having a hard time commuting because only few buses and jeepneys are on duty! haha.. My uncle gave us some tips on where, and what time the buses are. What we did, we started our long day at morning, and then rode a habal-habal or a motorcycle and taking us off to the highway where there are buses passing by. But, it takes patience for us because we will be waiting 30 minutes to an hour before the bus arrives. I am used to it. This is the Boholanos way!
We first went to, the famous town of Loboc! Went to their old church, and then to the Loboc River, we didn't take the chance to ride in a floating restaurants. We just watched them happily. Ate our lunch at a nearby restaurants, since it was lunch time when we arrived at Loboc.Took a rest for a while, and then walked by the highway going to see the smallest primate in the world with a bulging eyes..heheh the "tarsier". No entrance fee, but donations only. There are rules, upon watching, viewing and taking picture with the tarsier, and has to be followed strictly! We didn't stay any longer because we were running out of time then. We waited for a bus, just took us minutes actually! Luckily for us!
Our next stop over is the world-known Chocolate Hills! But, before going there, we passed by the beautiful, cool ambiance of the famous Man-Made Forest!!! so cool when we passed there! Mahogany trees were mostly planted there. When we got there, there were many people flocking to the place. there is an entrance fee of course, and it costs P 60.00. Tourists, locally or internationally were there
Then, it is time for us to go home. we waited a bus for 30 minutes. that was okay then, and we arrived at the house almost getting dark. Thanks to my uncle for always being there for us, he cooked a delicious dinner for us. Our tiring long day was worth it! We took a rest at an early time because the next day we will be heading to Panglao Island!
Bohol is the best! I love it!!!
