Quick Tips/ FAQs – Bohol Travel Guide
What is the best time to go to Bohol?
March to May is the summer season in the Philippines, so this is the best time to go if you do not want rainfall. The Chocolate Hills during this time are usually brown. My personal favorite is the months of November to February to avoid too much summer heat.
Optimal Number of Days to Stay
Each guest needs at least 5 to 7 days to fully experience the island. But, most of the tourists can only stay for 3 days, which is just okay, you can experience the basic tourist attractions in 3 days.
Can you Take Public Transportation in Bohol to go to Tourist Destinations?
You may, but it’s not like the public transportation in Manila where a jeepney or bus is readily available. We suggest you rent a motorbike, Car, or Tricycab.
How to get to Bohol?
If you want to go to Bohol the fastest, you have to go there by airplane. There are a lot of airlines that cater flights domestically to Panglao like Philippine Airlines, Air Asia, Cebu Pacific, and Air Swift. Internationally, Jeju Air has been carrying tourists from South Korea to Bohol.
Via Ferry Boat
This way of going to Bohol takes a lot of time but may save you some of your money. There may not be a boat from Manila, but if you came from the following places, you can take a boat to Bohol:
- OceanJet – from Bohol from Cebu, Dumaguete, and Siquijor.
- Trans-Asia Shipping Lines, Cokaliong Shipping Lines, and Lite Ferries from Cagayan de Oro.
- Super Shuttle Ferry – Camiguin
What is the mode of payment in Bohol?
All establishments accept the Philippine Peso only. Most medium to large establishments accepts credit/debit card, but cash is mostly used on the island.

There are a lot of ATMs around Panglao Island, none on Balicasag Island, and there are a few on Tagbilaran Island.
Everybody on the island understands Tagalog and English, but the Cebuano language is mostly used by the locals.
