Chocolate Hills, Bohol



Chocolate Kisses from Heaven

currently ranking at No. 5

Why it deserves your vote: This unusual geological formation is composed of around 1,268 perfectly coned-shaped hills of about the same size. These hills spread out over an area of more than 50 sq. km. and are covered in verdant grass that turns brown during the dry season. There are reasons how these hills came to be, but experts agree that these are actually grass-covered limestone deposits.
World's Smallest Primate the Tarsier or Tarsius Syrichta

Thing to do: You can also go to Tarsier sanctuary in Corella, where these endemic species are found. Numerous white sand beaches and well-designed resorts are found in Panglao. For a different local tour; ride the Loboc River Cruise and afterwards, listen to the angelic voices of the Loboc Children's Choir.

How to ge there: From Tagbilaran, go to Intregrated Bus Terminal in Dao and board a bus bound for Carmen. Ask the driver to drop you off at the Chocolate Hills complex. Travel time takes about two hours.

This is one of the provinces that I wish to go for and take a vacation.

Oh Tarsier, I saw one before. They're really cute but I get so scared by the size of their eyes.
