Hey readers – last week, me and Joyette travelled to the Island of Bohol in the central Visaya’s region of The Philippines for a vacation and a bit of work. It was nice to get away from the busy main island of Luzon and spend some time in a more desolate location with world renowned attractions.
After landing at the airport, we went to the famous chocolate hills – the pictures don’t do it justice – we got the chance to ride a bike in mid-air, Joyette went first – the guys working there commented on how fast she rode across! It’s part fitness & part being scared, I went after, took a bit longer to capture some selfies with my GoPro! Such unique landscape.
We stayed on Alona Beach, which I would recommend to both local & foreign tourist as it’s clean, safe & has many options for food/activities.
For the better part, the water’s where very clean & easy to swim in, The prices where very reasonable, IT’S MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES moments, We got to lounge around on beach in bean-bags, The pure volume of foreign tourist, mainly European, speaks for itself.
Anyway, all in all I would surely return to Bohol, there’s still a few things we did not get to see, which is a reason to go back!
Luckily, we return to Manila on Friday without any problems, before Typhoon Ruby hit, were 45+ domestic flights where cancelled on that day alone…
