Facts of the Tourist Spots in Bohol

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Last year, I came back to Bohol for a quick and on-the-spot vacation which even me I didn’t expect to happen. Who will expect to happen that we are having a trip to Bohol on Saturday but they just asked me on Thursday in the same week?  No preparation at all just the bag. haha.

We just go there without any hotel reservation and no groceries but we still survived. When we got there we stayed in Alona beach which tagged as Boracay of Bohol for one day.

Our tour supposed to start by 9:00 am but we woke up late so we start 1 hour late. haha.. Our tour package was offered to us by the driver Virgilio Dumangcas who drove us to Alona Beach. The tour package is affordable for us since we are 5. Contact Virgilio Dumangcas at 09197388926 or 09296571784 for Bohol Tour and VHire/Car rental.

In our tour for a day, I learned some facts about of some of the tourist spots in Bohol. Here are some facts that you might know or not. 😀
