2011 marked the year of the first tourism summit in Bohol. Philippines tour operators, government organizations, transport providers, accommodation providers and the like met at the Bohol tropics resort to discuss the future direction of the Bohol tourism. It was agreed by all that Bohol has a lot of the “best of the Philippines” in the one island, from beaching, to diving, trekking, to waterfalls. The urge to lead Bohol in the direction of ecotourism extraordinaire was evident from the discussions that took place.
Among other things the new international airport to be built on Panglao Island featured highly. Access being one of the key hesitations of current tourists. It is definitely fair to say that the flight from Manila, or the ferry ride from Cebu is worth the effort! Bohol is the best of the Philippines, friendly people, superb beaches, and fantastic interior.
The island of Bohol also marks the start of our very own Flip Flop Tour which you can find out more about atwww.flipfloptours.com. The aim of the tour is to encourage people to see the Philippines in a way that benefits the locals, and also gives you an authentic experience. The highlight of the Philippines is the people, and the beaches! The tour really highlights this!
