Bohol Beach Club Day Tour

Finally, we’re able to see and experience the beauty of Bohol Beach Club on Day 2 of our stay in Bohol (we couldn’t miss the chance!). Since we couldn’t afford to stay here overnight (rates are quoted in US dollar, $77 the least for single occupancy and $82 for twin sharing), we settled for day tour na lang at P350/head, of which P250 is consumable for food and drinks (that’s Fri-Sat-Sun rate while Mon to Thurs’ rate is at P250/pax, of which P150 is consumable for food).

Bohol Bee Farm nga pala offers free shuttle service to/from airport and BBF but since we already scheduled our countryside tour upon arrival and that Kuya Rejjy will be the one to drop us to Bee Farm, we asked for the FREE transport service to Bohol Beach Club and back to Bee Farm instead, of which Ms. Vicky- the owner of Bee Farm eagerly agreed! ;-)

Bohol Bee Farm: Fares and Accommodation

We’re supposed to stay at Dumaluan Beach Resort, 1st to take advantage of their cheap rates, 2nd we wanted a more serene, less crowded environment (based on research kz, Panglao Island was divided into Alona and Dumaluan areas, the former being the more commercialized and the latter being the less crowded) and lastly, so we could enjoy the nearby high-end Bohol Beach Club as they share the same shoreline. But since I became too busy planning with our Moon Garden and Anniv Escapes, fully booked na DBR when we inquired. (nawindang talaga ako nung malaman kong fully booked na sya, ever sa hanap ulit ako ng possible resort to stay na pasok sa budget namin- ok, budget ni Gil hehe!)

Then I remembered Bohol Bee Farm. I haven’t read any negative feedbacks about this place pero hesitant ako at first kz I was thinking of something FARM (baka sobrang liblib na yung area, etc). Nevertheless, nag-book na rin ako online at tsaka nlng ako nagsearch ng blogs re BBF (baka maubusan na nmn kmi ng slot). I chose The BARN room @ 2k/night w/ breakfast for two (not bad!) Reading BBF entries of Chyng and Pusang Kalye made me realized; I have indeed made the right choice! ;-)

Bohol Countryside Tour (Part 2)

...hope you'd read Part1 first before you proceed! enjoy! ;)


Bridge made up of bamboo and cable wires that hang approx 20 meters above the Loboc River that connects two barangays of Bohol. At first glance, parang sisiw lang nmn (it’s just a bridge!) but when you actually walk across it, nkakatakot din pala as it constantly shakes and sways. There were two bridges for the Entrance and Exit, so there’s no way na mkabalik ka from where you started other than cross the other bridge (unless you never cross one at all!)

Bohol Countryside Tour (Part 1)

As early as November of last year, I was already in search of possible tour guide cum driver (even before I learned of PAL’s promo) for our future Bohol trip kz gusto ko talaga I-visit ang Bohol. I’ve txtd several persons I’ve found thru net thus I learned na posible pala I-visit 11 spots in a daylong tour, did the usual ‘tawad’ thing and eventually came out with Ritchie for 3 reasons:

1. Calvin’s article was really convincing (safety speaking).
2. Ritchie offered us 11 spots though it was not his usual routine for only 2k.
3. He seems nice kz reply talaga sya sa bawat inquiry nmin and sya pa talaga tumawag when we asked for a favour re resort accommodation. Such a nice man!

It was not Ritchie who took care of us but his brother Rejjy, an equally great man. Dalawa lng kmi ni Gil but we were fetched by them with their Pregio van, so comfy! Then our countryside tour…tara! Sama ka! Pasyal tayo! ;)

My first time was with...PAL

...and Gil’s first PAL too since he only got to fly with JAL and Northwest Airlines. ;-)

I came across Philippine Airlines’ website November of last year and was surprised to learn that they were offering this 777 Arrival Special promo allowing patrons to enjoy the Php777 (Base Fare: Php693) and Php1777 (Base Fare: Php1586) special combinable domestic fares. This was in celebration of the first Boeing 777er delivery.

The promo runs for 1 week and I was able to book the flight on the last day, Nov.25 (two days bago dumating si Gil from Japan) for travel dated Feb.18-20, in time for our 2yrs 1 mo celeb (and most suited flight for the combined Php777 fare hehe!). Departure from Mla- 5:30am, approx arrival to Tagbilaran- 6:55am. Roundtrip for two costs us only Php3,140.00. Saya! ;)

few more days to go (can't wait!)

Everything’s ready...from PAL’s Itinerary/ Bookings, to Accommodation Confirmation Forms (even print-out of Email conversation with the place’ owner), Budget List in Excel File, Itineraries/ To Do List from Day 1 to Day 3, To Bring List, prepared maps, had research and read related blogs and personal experiences of previous travelers as well.

This weekend will be our last weekend to prepare. It will surely be a busy but exciting weekend since we’re to find comfy attire to wear, to buy some groceries as baon and to furnish everything else. Seems marami pa rin kaming dapat ayusin...Excited lang talaga ako (and nervous) since this will be my first ever plane experience! Haha!
