Bohol Itinerary, Philippines

Bohol Vacation Checklist

Bohol is one of the provinces in the Philippines, located in the Central Visayas region. All the tourist site are accessible by tricycle/jeepney and van. Hiring a van for a one day city tour is a smart choice; if you consider the time and travel going to different places you can save an ample of time to get these places.

Advantages: Hired Van
-Time Management for travelers who has a few days stay.
-A number one choice for groups and partners who likes a hassle free city tour.
-Slight difference in expenses but worth the saved time and security as well.
-All tourist spots will be visited as long as you're not too obsess with taking too much pictures.
- I recommend for your first day, for pick-up transfer from the ferry terminal or from the airport and to familiarize the place before going on your own tour the next day.

Going Commando Advantage: (on your own)
- Great for Solo travelers or just Backpacking in Bohol.
- It wouldn't be fun if you don't get lost. To avoid such read blogs ahead of time and research for possible route and fares.
-Time consuming yet you'll never know what's in store for you. Great for people who has a sense of Adventure and keep the positive vibe all day long.
- Meet different kinds of people along the way and definitely you're bidding skills will be put to the test.
-Choose what you like to visit, bear in mind that time management is important to meet your checklist and number one thing let loose you're on a vacation! Smile, laugh and enjoy every step of the way.

  1. Wow we will be visiting Bohol soon on May 1 to 8. this itinerary would help us alot. Thanks

    1. I'm glad you're able to check my post. I hope you had a great time in Bohol. ^__^

    2. how much po ung van? san po na hotel ung 900?

    3. kaya no po bang halfday sa chocolate hills at luboc?

    4. Hey Tonix!

      I think we paid 2,500 php for 5 people and ask for another discount during the payment transaction. It would be much better if you go as a group so you'll pay less individually.

      I can't remember the establishment where we stayed but it's just around Tagbilaran Market. We asked the local people for this place, it's not actually a Hotel but a Pension House.

      You can visit Loboc River first then proceed to Chocolate Hills. However , it would be such a waste if you just past by other tourist spot along the day. Well Its your trip, your decision. Just make sure to manage your time to achieve it in a half day pace.

      Have fun and be safe!
