Things to do in Bohol for a Day

There are many things to do in Bohol for a day. That is, if you’re into seeing too much for a short visit in the island. Yes, sightseeing in Bohol for a day is very possible. However, you really have to know where and what places you want go and see. 

Though you won’t be able to know its people and culture first-hand while moving from one place to another, visiting almost all the famous places you want to see can be within the time frame you planned ahead, as long as you start early. 

While our time to stay there was limited, our hosts hired a bus to bring us to places we wanted to go. 

At 7:30, the bus picked us up at your budget hotel where four us were cramped in a suite room. A suite room in a third world is not the one you imagine, of course. 🙂 Especially in a 2-star hotel.

But anyway, I’m a backpacker and I really don’t care where to sleep as long as its within a four-walled space—and as long as the bathroom is within reach and I can take a shower anytime of the day.
