Bohol is an interesting province of the Philippines

Bohol Island is the tenth largest island in the Philippine archipelago, located in the center of the Visayas. The city of Tagbilaran is the administrative center. But why is the island so interesting? Why tourists should visit it?

The island is famous for its "chocolate hills" and coral reefs. But another interesting symbol is cute animals - tarsiers. Bohol is one of the few places that combines the scenic beauty of nature and attractions.

"Chocolate Hills" There is a belief that in ancient times there was a battle between two giants, they fought with sand and stones, but soon the battle was over. The giants remained friends and left the island, but left behind a terrible mess in the form of hills of sand and stones. Scientists have their own opinion on this matter - the hills arose under the influence of limestone karst formations, which were eroded for thousands of years. The height of the hills ranges from 30 to 120 meters in height, all year round they are under a grassy cover. In summer, the grass that covers the tops of the hills turns chocolate in color. Which gives the name of this attraction, because the island becomes like a box of chocolate truffles.

Such a miracle of nature cannot be found anywhere else, which is why this explains the interest of tourists in visiting the island. The Chocolate Hills have been declared a top tourist destination in the Philippines. Hurry up for tickets!

Tourists who want to see the extraordinary beauty of the underwater world should definitely visit Bohol in order to observe the seabed with their own eyes, see the wild untouched coral gardens. The underwater landscape is so interesting for tourists with its sheer walls, crevices and faults that it has been named one of the main diving destinations. Love to dive? Pay attention to the island of Bohol.

Another attraction of the island of Bohol are the tarsiers, or they are also called tarsiers. The beast looks pretty funny, a kind of baby with huge eyes. Its size does not exceed the length of the human palm, its weight is small, usually ranging from 120 to 140 grams. The eyes of tarsiers are simply huge against the background of a small body, but this allows them to hunt at night. The sight of this animal will not leave indifferent either an adult or a child. 

Tarsiers are one of the oldest animal species in the Philippines and are endangered. They emit such high-pitched sounds in the ultrasonic range that a person is not able to hear them. The island is amazing - you just need to see these places. Travel and discover the world for yourself in a new way!
