Asked about the best island in my whole journey as a backpacker I would recommend Bohol as one of my top pick. This island has the best destination and believe me it will surely deepen your love with nature, people and the arts. All in one destination that a traveler would not miss. From the chocolate hills, to virgin islands, caves, museums, and alike are just few to mention.
This trip I had was no surprise. I had the best amazing backpacking experience last July of 2016, as part of my journey from Cebu to Bohol.
I was traveling with my three girlfriends. I have no idea where I was heading and what to do in this beautiful island in the Visayas. As a “go to” person, I don’t plan ahead of time. Yes, I am guilty of it. Trust me beautiful memories and amazing experiences are destined to happen so just go to the flow.
Okay, I’ll lessen the talk. I’ll just show you on how we traveled and experienced the marvelous Bohol.
These pictures will surely urge to travel to Bohol now. As in now.
WHERE TO STAY?
Fortunately, my friends and I found a good location and beautiful ambiance for backpackers like us. We found this BOHOL COCO FARM Panglao Town away from the city center and near in major attractions and just a few mile away from the beach. Staffs are very accommodating, good location, pretty good deal tours from island hopping to country side tour plus the an all day organic breakfast served at the center of a forest made area. I know staying at a backpacker’s place must be so amazing. The cultural exchanges between you, the owner and other races are rarely in your day to day life.
WHAT TO DO?
It is true. Bohol has a wide range of touristy destination. You can’t explore them in just a day unless your schedule is tight and hectic. We stayed here for almost four days and explored the country side and the islands for two days. See a glimpse here.
Bohol is waiting so pack your bags and go!
