    See an aerial view of the Chocolate Hills and experience the thrill of being up in the sky in a hot air balloon at Poblacion Sur, Carmen, Bohol.

  • Visit the Can-umantad Falls

    Can-umantad Falls Bohol

    Can-umantad Falls is the most beautiful waterfall ever seen in Bohol. At 60 feet, Can-umantad looks like a single drop waterfall from afar, but upon closer inspection, it actually has three distinct layers. Going here takes about 30 minutes from the Poblacion of Candijay.

  • Hike at Morning Hills

    Hiking at Himontagon Hills, aka Morning Hills, is a good way to start or end your day, especially if you’re into hiking, mountaineering, or simply wandering about.

    With a slow trek, you can reach the mountain top in 45 minutes. Morning Hills is located in Loay, a 15-minute bus ride from Tagbilaran City.

  • Take Stunning Shots of Danao Sea of Clouds

    Danao Bohol

    Danao Sea of Clouds is a view that can’t be beat and it’s safe to say that it’s worth the three-hour bus ride from Tagbilaran City.

    Located at Mt. Puntaas, this spot should be visited during the wee hours of the morning as the thick sea of clouds is only visible from sunrise until around 7AM.

    Although you should remember to check the weather first to make sure that the rain won’t dampen the experience.
