The itinerary I posted was modified on what had happened during the trip. We removed some because of the time constraint and the distance. The only reservation we had was the Suite in Cebu and the Resort in Bohol. Then the rest were contacted during the trip already. It was an awesome journey. DIY City Tour in Cebu will save you a lot but can be tiring if you are with your family or if with kids. In Bohol, I would definitely recommend visiting Panglao and the Island Tour if you’re a beach lover.

I would like to give thanks to Mark Gallardo of Triptabai  for giving me tips about Cebu and to other bloggers out there for their helpful posts.

I would also like to give special thanks to the taxi driver who gave the number of Kuya Renato (on the right) because he's such a nice tour guide in Bohol. He also knows where to find a recommendable place to buy food and souvenirs in Bohol. You can contact him at 09322275270.

And again, to make your trip more memorable, don’t forget to interact, and be kind to the locals in the city you are in. That’s the secret of “pakikisama”, you are new then you need to respect the people and the place. Enjoy and live free! 

My favorites are Kawasan Falls, Bohol Bee Farm and Balicasag Island. I would love to go back to Cebu and Bohol and visit more places. Hope to see  you again!
