We wanted to have a weekend getaway. Initially, the plan was to go to Coron, but the flights back to Manila didn’t agree with us. All the flights are scheduled in the morning, and with that, it would mean that we will be wasting one day of our trip, so we decided to go to Bohol instead.

This trip was an all boys trip with my brother and two cousins. Not that we were planning to do for-men-only activities, but because we wanted to be more adventurous and carefree.

We booked our flights with Philippine Airlines, PR 173 (MNL-TAG 5:30AM) and PR 178 (TAG-MNL 4:55PM) for P6,969.00 each. We weren’t able to get any promo fares since we booked only three weeks before the trip (proving that this trip’s theme was being “carefree”).

We landed on time at Tagbilaran Airport. When we landed, our airport pick up was already there waiting for us. Just a tip, I suggest you coordinate the airport transfers with the resort you will be staying in, so as not to waste time looking for a ride.

We booked our stay at the Bohol Bee Farm. We got their package that included all our activities, food and accommodations for the remainder of our trip, which is about P7,880.00 per person. The travel time from the airport to the resort is about 20-25 minutes.

Their rooms are nice and cozy. We were given a two floor unit which can comfortably accommodate 6 people. There were two queen size beds and 2 single beds.

our next stop was the man-made rainforest. The mahogany trees were planted during the 1960s to prevent flash floods and soil erosions.

After the going through the rainforest, we went to the Butterfly Garden and Hanging Bridge. We wanted to walk across the hanging bridge, but it started raining. So, we just moved on to our next stop – the Tarsier photo opportunity!

By the time we left the Tarsiers, it was already lunch time. We had our lunch on the cruise of Loboc River. What was different was that we had an in-ferry entertainment while we were having our meal.

We then made a stopover to check out the giant python. It was so huge. I think it was big enough to consume a whole pig.

Our last stop was the Baclayon Church. The walls of this church is made out of coral stones and is one of the oldest church in the Philippines.

We had a very interesting day 1. Watch out for my article on Day 2 in Bohol, which will be published tomorrow.
