I am from Cebu, a province just beside Bohol. After three attempts to have a tour in Bohol for the last five years, at last! now, I’m stepping in on a the ferry going to Bohol.

This trip just came out from an impulsive decision with just a few hours of planning a night before we depart from Cebu.

Here’s our itinerary:

Blood Compact Shrine. A symbol of friendship between spanish explorer Miguel Lopez de Legaspi and Bohol chieftain Datu Sikatuna.

The Sandugo was a blood compact, performed in the island of Bohol in the Philippines, between the Spanish explorer Miguel López de Legazpi and Datu Sikatuna the chieftain of Bohol on March 16, 1565, to seal their friendship as part of the tribal tradition. This is considered as the first treaty of friendship between the Spaniards and Filipinos. “Sandugo” is a Visayan word which means “one blood”. excerpt from wikipedia

Dauis bridge. The bridge connects the Bohol mainland and Panglao Island.

Dauis Church. The century-old church was under construction during this time because ot was ruined when an earthquake hit the province.

Alona Beach, Panglao Island. A white-sand beach. At night, unlike Boracay, the place is crowded with tourist but still peaceful. No beach parties but dinner by the beach.

Relax on this resort with Nipa Hut rooms in Panglao Island at an affordable rate.

Chocolate Hills National Park.


Bilar Man-Made Forest.

Farm and Mini-Zoo.

Butterfly Sanctuary.

Tarsier Sanctuary.
