I’ve been longing to travel to Bohol since 2017 started, and finally, I was able to visit it this summer with my family. A family Bohol day tour package just fit right.

Family Bohol day tour at Bamboo Hanging Bridge

Yep, you read it right – family!

Well, actually, with my parents and my little brother at heart. My real brother is still completing his internship and can’t make it with us, while my sister is 4,854 miles away. Kevin is so dear to us that we wouldn’t mind tagging along.

From Cagayan de Oro, we took a ferry to Tagbilaran City via TransAsia: Asia Philippines. We arrived around 4:30 A.M. By 5:00 A.M., we went to McDonald’s to eat before our countryside family Bohol day tour began. The driver picked us up at 6:00 A.M.

And so it started at Chocolate Hills, the farthest attraction on the countryside day tour itinerary.

It was gloomy that day and had a little rain shower as well, so you could see from the photos that it was foggy. We arrived here as early as 7:20 A.M. It was looking fine after 30 minutes. Then we headed to the Butterfly Sanctuary.

They also sell homemade ice cream with real fruit. It’s a must try.

The next attraction on our family Bohol day tour was the Tarsier Conservation Area. As usual, tarsiers are still very cute. I was sad, though, because I thought we could have a short encounter with one of the tarsiers, just like before when I was here. Unfortunately, they won’t allow it anymore because the tarsier I was referring to is already gone – dead.

We also stopped by at Loboc Man-Made Forest. You will love it here, especially if you have an eye for photography. A stopover you would not miss on your family Bohol day tour. Just look at that high lines trees. 🙂

Our last stop-over before having a river cruise lunch was at The Bamboo Hanging Bridge. It was enjoyable here, although my knees were sort of trembling. I didn’t mind it because my mom was terrified – in a hilarious way. I mean, you know, my dad was teasing her more by jumping, and it was utterly hilarious. I haven’t really taken more pictures because of dad, haha, but grabbed some from him. The staff there will take a photo for a mandatory souvenir picture, and it has a lovely view which you can see in the first photo in this post.

Time for lunch, and we arrived earlier than usual. It didn’t meet my expectations, though. I thought the Loboc River Lunch experience for our family Bohol day tour would be full of seafood, mainly crabs, but it was not. Regardless, the food was delicious. I loved the chicken curry and the pancit noodles.

Due to a lack of sleep while on the ferry, we didn’t stop at the Blood Compact Shrine and Baclayon Church. By the way, Baclayon Church is still under renovation due to the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in 2013.

But before we finally went to our accommodation, we stopped by the Bee Farm first to try their organic ice cream. I was surprised because they were using a cassava cone. It was so unique, and you should try their unusual flavors like Spicy Ginger, Malunggay, Buko, and Dragon Fruit.
