Today you will venture out and see the best of Bohol’s countryside with a full day tour! Starting with a pick up from the hotel, you’ll be taken directly to the historical Blood Companct Shrine. Locally known as Sandugo (which roughly translates to one blood), the Blood Compact Shrine is the exact site where Spanish explorer Captain General Miguel Lopez de Legaspi and Datu Sikatuna, a chieftan of Bohol, drew blood from their palms, poured it into a cup, and drank it – a symbol of their friendship. Next, you’ll be brought to the Baclayon Church, one of the oldest churches in the Philippines, and was declared a National Treasure of the country. From there, head to the Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary, where you’ll get a very rare chance to see the world’s smallest primate, the adorable, bug-eyed tarsier. Next up: a delightful buffet lunch on the Loboc River, on a floating and moving restaurant no less. After lunch, head to the Bilar Manmade Forest, a man-made mahogany forest that stretches 2 kilometers long, so beautiful you’ll actually feel like you’re in a movie while walking down the road. Finally, a highlight in Bohol and one of the most favourite tourist destinations: the world famous Chocolate Hills, made up of 1,268 cone shaped hills that turn brown in the summer, baffling many geologists.
After a long day of exploring, this evening will be yours to spend at your leisure.

We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s generally quite hot in the Philippines so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun
