Loboc River

When you are in Bohol, one of the places that you must visit is the Loboc River. This river is one of the major tourist destinations in Bohol province. The estimated travel time from Tagbilaran to Loboc is about 20 minutes by car.

In our case, we took an airconditioned Ceres bus from Integrated Bus Terminal near Island City Mall going to Loboc. The bus fare is Php 30.

We were not really planning to experience the cruise in Loboc River, we just wanted to take a look. haha So what we did was merely taking pictures of the river and some floating restaurants but it is really better if you try their buffet. You will not only experience their sumptuous food, you will also be serenaded by music by the locales.

Another activity that you can do aside from the river cruise is paddling the water using a board which looks like a surfing board. We saw two foreigners doing it and I thought it was kind of cool! Next time, I will really try it. :D

Since we only fed our eyes and not our stomachs (lelz :D), we decided to go to our next destination. BUT, there was one question among us-- what are we going to use for transportation? Since it was a holiday, there were only few buses and jeepneys and there were a lot of "habal-habal" drivers trying to haggle with us. FYI: Habal-habal is a motorcycle. We were really having a hard time deciding that time, good thing was there was this tricycle (a motorized one) which we were able to make a deal. Yay! So off we go to our next destination-- Zoocolate Thrills!
