Explore Bohol – the other way around
The other way to explore Bohol is to commute or rent a Tricycle. While there are different kinds of transportations to choose, starting from the van to automobiles at the Port of Tagbilaran, the Tricycle comes to the cheapest. But unlike from any rentable transportation available, the passenger must tell the driver where to go or what are the places they wish to drop by.

When my friends and I arrived at the Port of Tagbilaran dated June 15, 2012, we settled with the cheapest available transportation going to Panglao Beach – the tricycle. Having friends who know how to negotiate, the driver agreed with 500Php for the rental price. Splitting it to four persons, it wasn’t bad, when it includes visiting other notable places in Bohol.
Bohol Tropics Resort
With an empty stomach from Manila, we go straight to the nearest restaurant the Bohol Tropics Resort for lunch.
Right after lunch we go our way to see the tiniest man on record but since he’s sick and not available for public viewing, we move to the next place – the Dauis Church.
One of the oldest churches in the Philippines it was built somewhere in the late eighteenth hundredths.
While my friends are busy with their thing inside the church, I was busy taking pictures at the back of the church.
This church has a design with a mixture of different architectural character.
“While Gothic inspired on its side….”
“…Coffer Ceiling is inside”“Dauis Church is also known for its miraculous well, its water, sold for about 10Php to 25Php (that goes as a fund for church maintenance, I believed) is believed to cure and does miracles… “
Not far from the Dauis Church we move on to one of the nearest tourist spot, the Hinagdanan Cave. The source of its clear water somehow remains an enigma to its locals. While its natural light rays from above, makes this place perfect for photography session.
Entrance Fee – 15Php
This fee includes one tour guide for every group or individual; who are very good at public relation, they cheerful and funny.
Wait, they know how to handle DSLR, so having someone to take your picture (if you are a sole traveler) is not a problem. I have learned from our tour guide, that they were taught of the basic photography and attended photography sessions for enhancement (…good to know these things).
We are almost done with our activities for the day. The clouds are getting dark and about to rain and before the dusk comes we head our way to Panglao Beach to find for a place to stay.
