i have planned a bohol trip for myself and my best friend which is budget-friendly and kind of laid-back. it was only a three-day weekend trip and what happened on our first day was unproductive due to the rain. we actually just had a good dinner and checked the bars lining alona beach in panglao.
the room i booked from agoda website was at l’elephant bleu.
this accommodation in panglao island offers rooms and cottages and is very near alona beach. we were given a room in their new building.
the room is average and working wi-fi is available and complimentary.
the beds made of bamboo were comfortable and the sheets clean.
one of a must-do in bohol of course is to visit a tarsier conservatory.
in my list, one of the ten things i have not done before was to photograph a tarsier.
i noticed that most of the tarsiers were asleep when we visited (hello world, they’re nocturnal!) and as stupid as i can be i forgot to bring my zoom lens in l’ elephant. so here’s the result – unimpressive pictures, but anyway seeing these curious-looking creatures was enough to fascinate me like an elementary pupil on an educational field trip. 😀
i have read online many reviews about the food at bohol bee farm. i made sure that i had to try some.
cab-cab chips paired with green tomatoes and grated parmesan cheese
spicy flower salad with honey-mustard sauce
buko (coconut meat) pasta
they have these homemade ice cream with unique flavors such as camote, malunggay, ginger, tomato and pandan. i tried sweet potato (camote) and found it good-tasting. they also serve it into a cone made of cab-cab (from grated cassava root).
locally handmade items like these are available in their souvenir shop where i bought some for my ma.
