Okay ang gimik with the tent. But how do you manage the call of nature?

right beside Bohol Beach Club is a realatively cheap na resort owned by the mayor ng panglao....in that place you can really get cheap rates there....range cgur0 between 800 - 2000++.....problem lang is that wala masyadong happening dito during the night.....

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


thanks for all the inputs pare. highly appreciated. :thumbsupsmiley:

If you are coming from Cebu take the 2-hour ferry. Do not forget to bring school ID's for the kids since they might give discounts. Discount for sure for senior citizens.

If you are arriving about 10 am or earlier, hire a van (Nissan or Besta) and take a tirp straight to Chocolate hills. Your driver will be able to plan a tour for your group with lunch at the Hills. Surfbe the net on where to go (that is what i did for a first timer). Try to be back early enough to stay at Panglao. Drivers can trusted since they are proud with their work and what Bohol can offer. Really tourist-oriented for both locals and foreigners.

While at the beach in the afternoon, try tp buy fresh catch from local fishermen and have these cooked for your dinner at the hotel.

Panglao is comparable to Boracay except that Panglao is much quieter.

Have a nice trip.

Bohol is really nice. If you are on a tight budget, you can go to the DIMALAHUAN Beach...this is just beside Bohol Beach Club. They share the same coast line. If you wanna enjoy Bohol Beach...you can rent a room in this resort...just a few meters walk by the shore, you'll reach Bohol Beach..pay only Php150 to enter Bohol Beach from this area. ;)

in Bohol visit the centuries old chuches, the tarsier and lemur sanctuary, you can go river cruise, go to chocolate hills, the underground cave is off limits and is being rehab. Don't forget to buy their baked pulvoron, their version of broas and the peanut kisses. :) In Bohol, when you get a van after unboarding the ferry make sure you huggle for a good van. all prices for transpo are the same..magkakatalo lang sa model and make ng van..so choose for the newer models ng van or car. tranpo cost should include drop off and pick up from the resort and the day tour.

Enjoy!!!!

Thanks for your input. do you happen to know how much the RUNNING RATE is for the TRANSPO? Chaka kung me contact numbers po kayo? magkakano murang resorts? FR? Thanks ulet! :thumbsupsmiley:

nagpunta ako sa bohol october last year....medyo tag-bagyo nun, hehehe.....bale sa Nuts Huts sa Loboc kami nagstay, along the Loboc river siya tapos parang kubo ang tutuluyan niyo, simple lang, tahimik, sobrang tahimik pero gubat, hehehe.....ang maganda dito ay kapag gabi, sobrang dami ng fireflies sa top ng mga puno....ang ganda :)

see this photobucket link:

http://www.pbase.com/serenab/nuts_huts

sobrang mahal sa bohol beach club so we opted for the Alona Tropical Beach Resort, which turned out to be quite a surprise, maganda at ayos facilities pero mura lang! ang pinakamura nila ata ay P1,200k+ (P900 lang pag off peak season) per person per night in a two bed non-aircon room and includes a breakfast of your choice....pasensya na, di masyado detalye ang info, di kasi ko na-ilista mga nagastos ko dun.....

Bohol is my sanctuary. I go there at least once a year. The last was right after christmas. Accesible. Not as commercialized as boracay. The people are very friendly. Food is dirt cheap.

The best way to go around the island is to rent those 50cc motorbikes (ala honda dream) at P100 per day in Tagbilaran city and just fill up the tank. You will be amazed at the places you can go, the sights you can see, even without a guide. Ask any boholano directions, they may point with their lips, but they will point you to the right direction. You can get as far as carmen (chocolate hills) in as little as 2 hours. Masaya lalo na grupo.

Make your base panglao or tagbilaran. Then go on from there.

Must visit:

1. Tanglad Iced Tea and Organic Buffet at Bohol Bee Farm (Panglao)
2. swim with the dolphins and if your really lucky with whale sharks of Pamilican Island (Baclayon)
3. Tarsier Farm (Corella)
4. Mag-aso Falls (Antequera)
5. Awp-awp Grille (Maribojoc)
6. Sweet tuba from any sari sari store in Calape
7. Camp Magsaysay (Bilar)
8. Fresh kuja (oysters) in Kainggit Beach (Tagbilaran)

Internet access is available. Cell sites in most towns. Beer is cold in most places.

For those who are into alternate reality activities, this too can be sourced out locally.

Thanks CANTSLEEP for your input! :thumbsupsmiley: nagkaidea tuloy ako about the motorbikes. What i originally had in mind was to rent a Van pero mas mukhang masaya pag 2 wheels gagamitin.

for a 3 day stay, more or less mga magkano kaya kelangan na budget? para lang ma prepare ko na ahead of time. ;)

hehe! oo nga. hehe!
tent para sa easement na lang kung sakali. hehe! libre! :P

boondokers ka pala. sama ko pag may climb kayo! hehe! tagal ko nang walang adventure eh. hehe!

You can opt to stay in tagbilaran city where there are afforable pensions/inns. Or you can stay in panglao island where most of the resorts are located. go to alona beach there are several resorts
that are easy on the pocket. With your cebu pacific ticket promos tht will take you during the low season
you can bargain with the resorts that are open. i think they have a website of bohol province.

enjoy your trip.
