Philippines, Tagbilaran Guide (B): Ushering 2016 with a Weekend Adventure in Bohol
When I was young, our grandparents would tell us that how we usher in the New Year would define how the rest of our year would turn out. So for 2016, we welcomed it with a weekend escapade in beautiful Bohol with the hope of many weekends of fun, adventure and traveling. It was also my first time in Bohol so I hope 2016 would also be a year of many firsts.
We booked an early morning flight via AirAsia. It was our first time to use this carrier, so we were praying hard for a smooth and problem-free flight. Notwithstanding the cramped legroom of the seats, it was a smooth flight with no delay. We left NAIA Terminal 4 at exactly 7:25 AM and arrived in Tagbilaran City Airport at 8:15 AM. The hotel driver from Ocean Suites, our accommodation in Bohol, was already at the airport waiting to fetch us.
After checking-in at Ocean Suites, we had breakfast in Azure, its signature restaurant. It was a very simple buffet breakfast of garlic fried rice, sausages, omelets, danggit, pancakes, cereals, fruits, slices of bread and bacon. There was overflowing coffee and orange juice. After filling our tummies, we deposited our luggage and freshened up quickly for our first day of roaming around Bohol. We rented a van for 8 hours (Php2,500), ample enough for touring some of the best and well-known eco-tourism sites that Bohol has to offer. ......
