Tips to make the most of your time and stay in Bohol.
Some people normally have 3D2N or 4D3N stay in Bohol so time is really restricted to tour all the marvelous places. If you’ll be coming in the morning, you could use your entire day to tour Blood Compact, Baclayon Church, and lunch at the Loboc River. Then some other sites such as Chocolate Hills, Dolphin watching, Tarsiers, Hanging Bridge and the like. Then you could rest and swim and relish your beautiful hotel at night. Have a lavish dinner and sleep early so you’ll have enough vitality the second day.
On your second day, you could begin in the morning about 5am or 6am to island hop and do Dolphin Watching. Then go to the stunning Virgin Island and Balicasag.
