Look no further for a complete holiday in the Philippine islands. Bohol has it all – from incredible sights such as the natural wonder of the Chocolate Hills and fauna as fascinating as the Philippine tarsier, to heritage sites such as centuries-old stone churches and ancestral houses. See the countryside on a Loboc River cruise and relax on the white sand beaches of Alona Beach on Panglao island before ending on a high note – snorkelling, diving, dolphin and whale watching. For an unusual brand of extreme, see if the canyon swing at Danao Adventure Park gets your heart pounding. Catch various festivals throughout the year, such as the fiestas in May and the Sandugo Festival in July, where the blood compact between the chieftain Datu Sikatuna and the Spanish conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi is re-enacted.
