A Little Gem Mar 15, 2011
A must do while in Cebu. You will probably find that Bohol is a completely different place from Cebu. Typical for a Philippine provincial area. People here, i thought, are kinder and more approachable in comparison to the nearby Cebu City. I didn't feel as if i had a dollar sign written on my forehead while we shared a discussion. Just ask you're tour guide to stop at one of the reputable local eateries and you might (or might not) see what i mean. Bohol hardly has pollution, has clean streets and no beggars (none that i've seen anyway).


- Come on the earliest ferry if only doing a day trip.

- Try and stay overnight. I hope i did this as I had to rush everything and missed out on other places i wanted to see.

- I had a good driver/ tour guide. I've got his number if interested.

- Come with at least ppl if possible.

Thank you Dean, nice comments
I am from Bohol!

Let me answer Maddy's questions about the small animal, its called Tarsier and you can see it if you book the Chocolate Hills Tour of Bohol or you may find them in the Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella, where they are raised in their natural habitat.
