Coming To Bohol

It's summer time once again and a lot of tourists come to Bohol to enjoy the white beach and of course see and enjoy a lot more! Afterall, Bohol is not only known for its famous white beaches but also for its Chocolate Hills, tarsiers, live clean rivers, old churches and many many more. No doubt Bohol is tagged as the favorite tourist destination in the Philippines.

Tourist flock to Bohol everyday. They come either by boat or by plane.Tagbilaran City is the entry point of Bohol.

To reach Bohol from outside the Philippines, get a plane to Manila or Cebu City (your entry points in the Philippines). If you enter the Philippines through Manila, you can take an airplane direct from Manila to Tagbilaran City. There are about four flights every day, depending on the airline and day. Presently servicing the Manila-Tagbilaran-Manila are Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific Airlines. Sometimes, these airlines offer promo fares for early bookings. Check out the airlines' respective websites for fare rates and flight schedules.

If your entry point is Cebu City, take either a slow boat (4 hours float) or fast craft (1 hour and 45 mins float). Taking the fastcraft is preferred. The fast craft companies servicing the Cebu-Tagbilaran-Cebu route are: Supercat, Weesam Express, and Ocean Jet. Boat leaves Cebu to Tagbilaran as early as 6 o'clock in the morning. And boat leaving Tagbilaran back to Cebu is as late as 6:40 o'clock in the evening.

Another trip option from Cebu City to Bohol is to take a slow boat from Cebu City to either Tubigon, Bohol (boat leaves every hour), to Ubay, Bohol, to Jetafe, Bohol or to Beunavista, Bohol. You can check trip schedules at the local seaport of Cebu City.

Coming from Mindanao, one can take a boat from Mindanao (Cagayan de Oro City or elsewhere)to Cebu City and from there, take either fast craft or slow boat to Tagbilaran City. Or, take the boat direct from Cagayan de Oro City to Tagbilaran City which floats every mondays, wednesdays and fridays.

Hi Leah!!!!!
We are planning to visit Bohol in July and prefering to stay in a quiet place.
Before,we will visit Cebu so,it will be better to take a boat going to Tagbilaran.
Will you give me some advice regarding this plan.
