A very popular tourist attraction here in Bohol, besides the chocolate hills, is the tarsiers. When we researched the tarsiers basically the first thing that came up was that the place included in most booked tours, a place near the river Loboc, is not so good to the animals: they keep them in captivity and are not an official sanctuary. To me it is very important that the animals are treated right. So, therefore, we decided to go to Tarsier Sanctuary Corella instead.
Tarsians are nocturnal so they sleep onduring the day. We therefore had a hard time getting a picture when their eyes were completely open but they were so cute anyway! You must not take a picture with a flash because their eyes are very sensitive and you shouldn't talk too loudly when you are close to Tarsians.
After the Tarsians we went further east towards the Loboc River. There they have floating restaurants (rafts that also serve food and have live music) that we wanted to try. In the middle of the trip the boat stopped at a pier where we also saw some Filipino dance. Quite okay boat ride and well worth 550 pesos per person for buffet and entertainment along the river for an hour.
After lunch we took the motorbike to Man Made Forest: a 3 km stretch with Mahogany trees. The trees hang over the road and closes the sky so it is dark and very cozy to go through it.
Talk to you soon! 🙂
