Bohol is one of the most visited islands here in the Philippines – and for good reason. It’s been on everyone’s lists of ultimate Philippine island destinations simply because it still holds some of the best beaches – and tourist spots – in the country.

With the recent opening of the newest Panglao International Airport, it’s become easier and more convenient for everyone to book their flights straight to sunny Panglao!

|03:00am||Early start of Day 2 tour|
|04:30am||Sunrise at Sea of Clouds in Danao||Make sure to wake up extra early to catch the beautiful sunrise! Go in comfy clothes and bring water – it’s a bit of a hike going up, but all worth it!|
|7:30am||The Plunge at Danao Adventure Park||2 WORDS: MUST TRY!!!
The 75-meter free fall drop and swing will definitely help you conquer your fear of heights! For those a little bit more traditional, you may try the one of the Philippines’ tallest zip lines and the heart-thumping glass cliffwalk. Watch our video here!
|9:00am||Breakfast at Danao Adventure Park||Thank you DAP for the adrenaline-filled adventures!|
|10:00am||Chocolate Hills||The tourist-favorite Chocolate Hills has a lot to boast about, but what most people don’t know is that the sunrise at this spot is one of them. You may opt to wake up EXTRA early to catch the spectacular view (We recommend getting here before 5:00am to find the best vantage point) – before anyone else arrives!|
|12:30pm||Lunch at Loboc River Cruise|
|02:30pm||Philippine Tarsier and Wildlife Sanctuary in Corella||Remember to stay quiet while inside the sanctuary – these tiny creatures are very vulnerable!|
|4:30pm||Blood Compact Shrine||This historical monument is the traditional way of “diplomatic relations” between our ancestors and the Spaniards who visited Bohol.|
|5:30pm||Dinner at Nonki Restaurant||Order their sushi rolls, beef teppanyaki, seafood soup cooked in paper, and tempura! So good!|
|8:30pm||Back at Eco Hotel|
