Our recent 3 days 2 night trip to Cebu and Bohol was very tiring, though it was really fun to see places that we once just saw in TV, but now in reality.
Cebu is one of the well known provinces in the Philippines, having a lot of small islands which include Mactan, Bantayan, Malapascua, Olango, and Camotes Island. Some of its famous destinations are Basilica Minore del Santo Nino, Fort San Pedro, Lapu Lapu Shrine, Magellan's Cross, Magellan's Shrine, and the Taoist Temple. Cebu is also known for its Sinulog Festival and Mantawi Festival.
Bohol, an island province just located in the east of Cebu, is known for its Chocolate Hills - which as formed through numerous limestones, Panglao Island - famous as a diving location and listed as one of the top ten diving spots in the world, Philippine Tarsier - considered as the second smallest primate in the world.
