The astounding fan base of the love team of Lisa Soberano and Enrique Gil is enough to guarantee the success of any primetime show, but to its credit, ABS-CBN is not resting on its laurels when it comes to playing the ratings game for their show, Dolce Amore. Last week, the series showcased LizQuen in Bohol, a place truly fit for the pair’s priceless kilig moments.
It’s not surprising that Dolce Amore in Bohol became a hit among viewers. Whether you’re a fan of Serena and Tenten, the episode is worth watching because it is practically an itinerary for those who are planning a Bohol vacation. So you want to enjoy Bohol LizQuen style? Here’s a list of places and activities to include in your plans.
- Feast on sumptuous buffet while riding a boat through the river
The Loboc River Cruise is drawing tourists from all over the world and it’s easy to see why. You get to enjoy a buffet of local cuisine as the boat cruises along the most beautiful section of the river. The ride starts near Loboc Church and ends near the Busay Waterfalls. You also get entertainment during the ride, courtesy of local musicians performing on board.
- Take a refreshing walk through the Bilar Manmade Forest
Years of efforts from students, scouts, laborers, and socio-civic volunteers gave birth to the Bilar Manmade Forest, which is part of a major reforestation project. The volunteers planted red and white mahogany seedlings which grew into the lush and dense forest that we have today. Walking through this blanket of green that stretches up to 2 kilometers high is a peaceful and exhilarating experience.
- Spend an afternoon of solemn prayers at the Albuquerque Church
This is only one of the many historic churches in Bohol and was declared a National Historical Landmark by the National Historical Institute in 2014. The cruciform-like shape gives the church a distinct appearance.
- Test your fear of heights at the Tigbao Hanging Bridge
Suspended 82 feet above the Loboc River, the Tigbao Hanging Bridge is truly a test for those who can’t bear to look down. Made of metal and bamboo, the bridge is considered one of the most spectacular footbridges in the world according to CCN Style last 2014.
- Feast your eyes on the geological wonder that is the Chocolate Hills
No trip to Bohol is complete without visiting the most famous attraction in the island. There are more than 1700 grass-covered hills scattered throughout the large forest, which dry up during summer and turn brown, resembling the famous Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses.
To make sure that your vacation is as great as it can be, you need to book an accommodation in Bohol that are as awesome as your itinerary. Before embarking on your river cruise, drop your bags at the Loboc River Resort first.
Set within 10 hectares of mostly untouched land for trailing, trekking, and birdwatching, Loboc River Resort provides a unique Bohol resort experience.
Enjoy lovely views of the river from your nipa hut–styled room or suite, which is supported by sturdy stilts and connected by wooden bridges.
Indulge in the convenience of the resort’s amenities and services, which include swimming pools, fishpond, garden, Wi-Fi internet access, laundry, car park, restaurant, reading area, and 24-hour front desk.
