Hills of Chocolate in the Philippines: picture and information

I first heard about the Hills of Chocolate in my Cebu Pacific in-flight magazine. I read that these hills are Bohol Island’s most famous attraction. The city of Tagbilaran is likely to be your base for exploring the Hills of Chocolate, Baclayon Church, a waterfall in the rainforest, the Tarsier (the world’s smallest primate) Visitor Center, plus beaches and dive spots.

The Hills of Chocolate (but not all 1,268 of them):

Apparently this is a popular place with celebrities: Robin Williams (one of my favorite actors), Daniel Radcliffe (the Harry Potter guy), and Eugene Kim (it says “Korean star Eugene Kim” but that could be an actor or an actress since Korea has both a famous male Eugene Kim and a famous female Eugene Kim).

Anyway, I just wanted to share this very cool picture with you. I’m definitely putting Bohol Island, Tagbilaran, and the Hills of Chocolate on my places to go list. It’s a beautiful place for hiking and it’s not the kind of mountain scenery you can see in a few places. As far as I know, Tagbilaran in the Philippines is the only one place to go to see something like the Hills of Chocolate.

    I visited the island of Bohol twice.Chocolate hills is the highlight of the tour.Breathtaking view!! You can practically tour Bohol in one day, then you can enjoy the pristene and white sand beach of Panglaw island,which is just 15 minutes from Tagbilaran. The hotel rates are very reasonable…..

    I live in the Philippines but I’m ashamed to say I haven’t been to Bohol yet. It’s on my list for next year. Should you go, check out the Bohol Bee Farm as well. I definitely want to. 🙂

    When traveling to Bohol Island, visit Panglao where they have their stretch of sandy beaches and swaying palm trees. They call this area Alona Beach. Google it to see pics and hotel info. This place is a divers paradise for the novice and expert. This the place to go for a cheap family vacation.
