So everyone goes to Bohol and visits the Chocolate hills mainly because what they have seen on Instagram, a great picture of someone sitting on top of one, with no one else around. Unfortunately
you can’t do this. There is one hill everyone walks up and it’s the look out point, not so great.
Equally the tarsiers sanctuary is very controversial as some people don’t agree with endangered animals being put on display for the paying publics eyes.
So here is a few things to do in Bohol which you might not know about.
Take a local bus to Guildulman which costs 85 peso per person and takes roughly an hour and a half.
Guildulman Tourist Inn – I guarantee if you speak English you won’t find nicer hotel owners than Derick and Anne. They are by far the most welcoming, funny and helpful people we have come across. They helped us rent a moped, gave us maps and local information and generally amazing people. The food at the hotel is out of this world. From struggling to find decent food, we then were struggling with how much food we could consume. Anne is the chef and wow is she good! The rooms are beautiful and spacious and by far the cleanest we’ve come across in the Philippines. The WiFi is great and there is a tv with lots of English channels and the air con is an extra if need be. Extremely reasonably well priced for a couple. We had a deluxe room and we didn’t want to leave !
Things to do in the area
