Water and Sands in the Philippines

Just a few days ago Cebu registered a high 44.1 degrees heat index according to PAG-ASA Mactan. According to the said local state weather bureau, the heat index (also called human discomfort index) is the actual temperature felt by the body based on air temperature, humidity, and the surrounding environment. Quite a number of people on my FB feed shouted their discomfort with a slew of posts ranging from how polar caps are melting to comparisons of heat felt to the fires of hell reiterating how HOT this summer is becoming.

When it is this HOT, you can’t helped but think of the many places you’d rather want to be than stay at your sauna-like home. Luckily, the Philippines is blessed with a lot of wonderful places offering escape from the summer heat. As an archipelago, our country literally abounds with bodies of water that will refresh you!!! Here are a few outside of Cebu that I was fortunate enough to have visited over the years. I believe these will give you reason to hop on a ferry or book your next flight out of the city!

Compact Bohol 1-Day Tour: 9 Beautiful spots in a day

Travelling to Cebu’s next door neighbor has always been a plan but I never had the chance to explore the beautiful places of Bohol. So when I heard that my former classmate, Mich, along with her friends and cousins will be exploring the island, I got myself on board.

We were able to book a van for our Bohol Day Tour for P1,050 each for 12 pax inclusive of entrance fees and buffet lunch during the Loboc River Cruise. The itinerary included 10 tourist spots of Bohol: Hinagdanan Cave, Blood Compact Shrine, Dauis Church, Loboc Church, Loboc Floating Restaurant, Chocolate Hills, Man-made Forest, Tarsier Conservation Center, Hanging Bridge, and Prony.
