The original plan: Go with Gigel, to celebrate Kuya Yanyan's birthday at Cebu, then go for a side trip to Bohol since she hasn't been there yet.
Ang ending: Went with Bro to Bohol, then went on a side trip to Cebu, since he hasn't been there yet.
This was one of those best chillax trips I've ever had. All I did was sleep, chill on the beach, eat. Sounds perfect to me.Ü
|Welcome to Tagbilaran Airport!|
From the airport, we were fetched by Kuya Dodong (same driver we hired on my second visit to Bohol last year) and went ahead with our countryside tour. I decided to contact Kuya Dodong ulit kasi last year, he agreed to tour us for just PhP1,500 and that is absolutely the cheapest Bohol countryside tour one could find. This time, he charged us PhP1,800 including our transfer to Panglao.
|Kumusta naman, kami lang ang pasahero at ang mga bag namin|
|Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Datu Sikatuna posing with us. hehehe|
|Buti na lang naisipan namin magbaon ng tinapay from Dough Joe|
Oh, we also decided to stop over the Bilar man made forest as well:
|This way to history of man-made forest|
|Buwis buhay na shot?|
|This is the best shot Kuya Dodong can take. hehehe|
|Hindi ka naman tuwang-tuwa, Bro?|
Finally, the ever famous Chocolate Hills! Not as brown as the first time I saw it, but still as amazing as ever!
|Ay! Hindi kita yung hills|
And I just realized that I did not upload a photo with the hills, I'll just update this next time. hehehe! Now on our way back, we dropped by the Tarsier Conservatory Area:

|Ang natutulog na tarsier|
|At ang gising na gising na tarsier, hehehe|
|The real tarsier|
So that concludes our countryside tour. Normally, the countryside tour also includes lunch at the Loboc River, the Loboc hanging bridge, the Butterfly Garden, and Prony the python, but we opted to skip them instead.
* We did not have lunch at the Loboc River because we were already full when we got there (salamat sa tinapay from Dough Joe, hehehe!). We didn't cross the hanging bridge as well kasi I was expecting Bro on one end of the bridge shaking it while I'm crossing it. As for the Butterfly Garden, we opted not to drop by na lang kasi baka hindi naman mag-pose yung mga butterflies with us (chos lang!). And we also skipped Prony kasi we're really not interested with snakes, plus ayaw naming maging ulam niya, hehehe!Ü
From Tagbilaran, we were then escorted to our crib for the night, Dumaluan Beach Resort in Panglao. We stayed at their Standard Aircon Room for PhP 1,300.
|Not bad for PhP 1,300|
We were not able to explore the beach when got there because we were too exhausted (Bro and I came straight from our shifts) so we decided to take a nap, but ended up waking up the next day already. hehehe!
|Maayong adlaw, Panglao!|
