...hope you'd read Part1 first before you proceed! enjoy! ;)
8. HANGING BRIDGE OF SEVILLA
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!)
9. LOBOC RIVER CRUISE
We finally gave in sa gutom haha!;) Thanks for Calvin’s tip again we opted for Riverwatch among so many boats available. They offer buffet lunch at P350 per pax, good food, and great music with live band while the boat cruises the greenish calm water of Loboc. Para kaming pinaghehele sa sarap ng simoy ng hangin! (We invited out Kuya Rejjy din syempre to join us).
you need to pay here first @ Php350/pax
the waiting area where the boats will dock
the food selections
the scenic view of Loboc River during lunch and cruise
the mini falls (nag u-turn na ang boat upon reaching this point)
On the way, we stopped by this area where local performers danced and sang and performed Kuradang- the traditional folkdance of the Visayan people.
Btw, we’ve met this nice lady, Ms. Petra who travelled alone from Holland all the way to Bohol. Hope you had a great time mam! ;)
She volunteered to take pic of ours. (Incidentally, we bumped with her again at Bohol Beach Club where we had our day tour on day 2. Small world!)
10. HINAGDANAN CAVE
After a very relaxing lunch at Loboc River, we went spelunking (despite of Gil’s objection! Hehe!) I personally asked this one from Ritchie (and Rejjy) kaya!
The entrance (and exit) to the cave
Based on readings, this was discovered by a farmer when he tossed a coin into the hole in the ground and it splashed. They put in ladder (thus the name) and discovered a naturally lighted cave (light passes unto the wholes in the ceiling), with cool water spring of about 10ft deep among so many stalactites and stalagmites.
we're coming in- yey!
...and the clear coolwater spring
...which is too inviting. Care for a dip?
nah! we're on the other end pala, trying to push this part as hard as we could.Haha!
We were surprised to see these drawings painted sa background (visible lang sya using camera with flash). Madumi tingnan pero keri narin, di nmn sya pansinin kz madilim actually sa part na ‘to.
I really enjoyed... Gil seems not! Haha! ;)
11. BOHOL BEE FARM
Bohol Bee Farm is a resort, restaurant and a farm offering a healthy lifestyle and agricultural development thru organic foods and materials. It is where everything was nice: from food, to view, to souvenir lines, to lovely surroundings, superb services and definitely a home away from home.

BBF is not actually part of the usual tour itinerary unless you requested for it. Knowing the fact, we decided to stay here nlng for the next two nights. Indeed a great decision we have made! (Blessing in disguise narin na fully booked na ung preferred resort nmin). Fares and accommodation at Bohol Bee Farm on my next entry! ;)

Btw, if you’re to visit Bohol, we highly recommend Ritchie (and Rejjy) to be your all-in-one companions. You may contact them at 0919-7654571 (SMART) and 0923-9315121 (SUN). Aside from the countryside tour, they could also accommodate resort reservations, boat tours or driver for your stay. And since we're happy and satisfied with kuya Rejjy's service, sa kanya narin kmi nagpahatid sa airport on our last day. Try them, they're nice! ;)
