Useful Info for Visiting Bohol
Before we dive all into all the best tourist spots in Bohol, let’s go over some practical information for visiting this beautiful island.
How to get to Bohol
How to get to Bohol from Manila
If you want to visit Bohol from Manila your only option is flying. Luckily Bohol has an airport – Panglao International Airport (TAG) – and you can find cheap flights easily.
Cebu Pacific, Air Asia, and Philippine Airlines operate several flights on a daily basis between Manila and Bohol. The flight takes around 1.5 hours and the ticket prices are usually between 1,500-2,500 PHP (30-50 USD).
How to get to Bohol from Cebu
Although you have many options to get from Cebu to Bohol, unfortunately flying directly is not one of them. The easiest option is taking a ferry which is very straightforward and it’s actually much cheaper than flying from Manila.
Bohol has two ferry ports – Tubigon and Tagbilaran – and you need to pay attention to which port your ferry is going to because they are actually pretty far from each other!
Tubigon is located on the northwest part of the island and since it’s quite far from the best tourist spots there is a big chance that it’s not the right ferry port for you.
Tagbilaran, on the other hand, is located on the southwest side of the island and it’s the capital of the island with many hotels, shopping malls, and restaurants.
There are three different companies that operate on the Cebu-Tagbilaran route: OceanJet, SuperCat, and Island Water.
They are all departing from Cebu Pier 1, a tourist class ticket usually costs around 600-700 PHP (12-14 USD). There is not much of a difference between the three, just take the one which has the best timing for your needs.
Whenever I’m in Asia I always book my transportation tickets via 12Go Asia. Their website is super easy to use, you just have to type in your origin and your destination and it collects you all the available transportation methods.
For instance, you just have to click ‘Find tickets’ in the below widget and you can instantly see all the options for traveling from Cebu to Bohol! Super convenient, right? 안전한카지노사이트
If you’re planning to visit Bohol from Cebu, it is worth adding a few more days to your trip to explore Moalboal on Cebu island as well. Read this Moalboal itinerary to find out why!
How much time do you need to spend on Bohol
As I said before Bohol is the 10th largest island in the Philippines so it has a lot of things to offer. You will need a minimum of 3 days in Bohol to explore the main tourist spots on the island.
If you want to spend more time on the beaches or want to go island hopping to the nearby islands you can easily spend 5-7 days in Bohol.
Best time to visit Bohol
Before visiting the Philippines I made the mistake of checking only a few sites about the weather. All of them said that December is a dry season in the Philippines so that’s why I decided to visit the islands before Christmas. Then I arrived in Bohol and was welcomed with pouring rain. What?!
It turned out that despite December is being considered as a dry season for some parts of the Philippines – it is not true for Bohol. Typically the dry season lasts from March to May on the island but you can still expect a little rain in this period too.
The wet season starts with the northeast monsoon in late May and it lasts up until the beginning of March. In this period you can expect 15 rainy days on average.
The temperature is always hot and humid in Bohol. The humidity is around 80% all year long, while the hottest months are April, May, and June.
Where to stay in Bohol
There is a wide range of accommodations available in Bohol, basically, you can find anything from cheap hostels to luxury resorts. If you are visiting Bohol as a tourist the best places to stay are either in the capital city, Tagbilaran or on Panglao Island. 카지노사이트 추천
