Bohol Escapade (1st day)

One of the places that is on my bucket list is the island of Bohol.  Bohol is one of the islands in the Visayas. I have been to Tagbilaran, Bohol when I was like in fourth grade but we just stayed in Bohol Tropics Hotel for one night and we were not able to visit other places. So last April 2-4, we visited the province of Bohol! This blog post is an overview of the places that we visited. I will be writing separate posts soon for each place. :)

A week before the scheduled date, we booked our tickets through Weesam Express for Php 700 (return ticket already). On April 2, we departed at 5:50 am and arrived at almost 8:00 am.

We then went to our friend's house and then headed to Island City Mall (ICM). ICM is one of the shopping malls in Tagbilaran, Bohol which offers a lot to consumers. Plus, it is very convenient because it is just near Tagbilaran Public Market and the Integrated Bus Terminal. We bought some snacks and tried The Buzz Cafe's vegetarian pizza. This cafe is actually a branch of Bohol Bee Farm which is located in Panglao. Since we cannot go to Panglao, we opted to try their pizza. ^^

After eating, we went to the Integrated Bus Terminal which is just across the mall. We boarded a Ceres bus and paid Php 30 for the fare which is bound for Loboc. 

1st stop: Loboc Floating Restaurant (Loboc)

2nd stop: Zoocolate Thrills (Loboc)

3rd stop: Sevilla Hanging Bridge (Sevilla)

4th stop: Tarsier Conservation Area (Loboc)

5th stop: Man-made Forest (Bilar)

6th stop: Butterfly Conservation Center (Bilar)

7th stop: Shiphaus (Loay)

8th stop: Chocolate Hills (Carmen)
After the tour, we boarded a bus going to Guindulman where we were welcomed by the Esquilla family. After a long and fun day, we finally dozed off. That's day 1! Stay tuned for Day 2 and for detailed blog posts for each place. ;)
