I'm just too happy that I had 2 checks off my bucket list - to visit Cebu and Bohol. This trip was even more special because I got to spend 4 lovely days of leisure, food, laughter, beach, rain and sun with ELF and partners.
Let the tour begin!
After the usual "Kitaan sa Junction" ritual, off we went to the Airport!
|Checking in, oh yeah!|
Excited? Oo naman!

Ocean Jet 88 took us to the Tagbilaran Port in Bohol. Thanks to Lori's bargain hunting skills, we booked the promo back-and-forth ferry fare for P740 only, instead of the P800 one-way fare.
We took the tour package for P2600 per pax which includes the following for our 3-day Bohol escapade (will post our itinerary later).
- Aircon transfer from airport/pier to hotel/resort and vice versa.
- Aircon car/ van for the tour countryside tour & Panglao tour
- Hotel/Resort accommodation 2N/3DAYS without breakfast
- All tour entrance fees
- Buffet lunch at Loboc River Cruise during Bohol Countryside tour
|First Stop: Loboc River Cruise Lunch and Buffet. Boy! This was hell of a fun dining experience. We had an entire hour eating our hearts out, while cruising the Loboc River. We had a singer on board serenading us while we enjoy our lunch.|

|Too bad it was raining when we headed for the famous Chocolate Hills. It was dripping wet, yes... but, who cares? :P|
|It was still raining when we got to the Tarsier Conservation Area. These Tarsiers are now endangared, and we are really lucky to see them for real. Visitors are not allowed to touch these species known to be the smallest primates, but pictures can be taken- only if the camera flash is turned off. (Picture courtesy of Joanne)|

We ended our countryside tour with a simple dinner at the Chicken Ati-atihan restaurant. After eating, we checked in at the Dumaluan Beach Resort 1.
