For my second trip to the Philippines, I was torn between two destinations: Palawan or Bohol. I’d heard great things about both, but elected to go with Bohol. I’d been told the diving was fantastic, and there seemed to be a variety of things to do around the island — perfect for the Philippines vacation I had in mind. It turned out to be a solid choice! Here are some things to do in Bohol when you make it there…
Check out the Chocolate Hills
If you go to Bohol, you go to the Chocolate Hills — at least the first time. Over 1700 of the grass-topped hills dot a 50 sq. km. area, varying in hue from green to brown depending on the time of year you visit. The best spot to view them is just outside the town of Carmen. A road winds to the top of one of the formations, whereupon you can get out and make the short trek to the summit. On a clear day, you can see for miles. It’s a great view, and worth the paltry entrance fee.
