Bohol: Balm for the Soul
Bohol has long been known, foremost, for one of nature’s most wondrous creations, the Chocolate Hills which can be found in the mainland. While this remains to give identity to Bohol, the island holds even greater wonders for the adventurous soul– for Bohol’s hidden charm lies in its forests that hold a breath of stillness, and pristine sand beaches with a bevy of sea creatures prevailing in the world underneath.
