Day 1: Bohol, Philippines (Part 2)

Wander Soul | Bohol

Thank you guys for the positive feedback on my previous post. Finding the will to continue writing for part 2 of our Bohol day tour is somewhat hard because motivation just keeps on coming back and forth. So if you guys haven’t read part one yet, feel free to read it here: Day 1: Bohol, Philippines (Part 1). It was Sunday late lunch when we almost checked all of what’s on the list (Countryside only). We had baon to refrain from buying food along the way. 

5. BAMBOO HANGING BRIDGE SEVILLA (📍Sipatan River, Sevilla, Bohol)

(See featured photo) We decided to try the twin hanging bridge in Sevilla, Bohol. We reached there late lunch or maybe it was around 1 o’clock, not bad, really need to push through with it before eating our lunch. I was too excited upon the arrival, this was the place I’ve been too eager to visit because the photos around the internet are really intriguing. Guess it was a bad decision, but whatever.

Photos and looks can be deceiving, to be honest. Been researching before this trip, all of the photos I’ve seen look alright and chill. But na-oh! It was horrible than expected. (Photo above) I’m not sure if we were lucky that we were following these two, or not. They just kept on jumping and moving around, and ughhh. But let’s appreciate their couple shirt in stripes. Wishing Kenneth and I wore same shirts too, lol.

Souvenir items and printed copies of your photos (there are photographers around the place) are available sa side na ito pag nakalampas ka na, lol. Pero pag bumalik ka, wala muna, hahaha. (RIP English, kapoy).

The challenge never ends when you finally reach this area where souvenir items, Buko juice and comfort rooms are located. Since there is no other way to get yourself back to the hi-way, you are forced to take the twin bamboo bridge. Promise, if only I could find another way, then I’m never taking the hanging bridge again. Trust me, it felt like it’s going to flip anytime.

I made it! I don’t intend to try it again, but the feeling of being able to finish such thing is too overwhelming and great. Locals from the other portion are used to it ’cause it’s their only way to get to the hi-way. By the way, fruits and other Bohol delicacies are available in the place too.

6. PYTHON SANCTUARY (📍 Laya, Baclayon, Bohol)

Truth be told, I hate snakes! Well, a lot of us do. But since Kuya driver brought us in this sanctuary, then go. I know about this huge Python in Bohol, but I didn’t know the name was “Prony”. Prony, by the way, is a female Python. She was actually labeled as Bohol’s Superstar Python. Yes, she’s that big and interesting. Although Prony died with an unknown cause, still she remained the highlight of this town.

This sanctuary won’t only let you see Pythons, but they also have different species of bird, monkeys, and other animals too. Sorry I wasn’t able to take photos of them.

Wander Soul | BoholI just realized that the more I keep on staring at this photo, the monkey’s getting cuter, hehe.

(Photo above) Meet Prony! Yes, the owner wants her to be preserved and exhibited at her den. Still looks real, I even thought it’s the real one or a new one. Prony’s skeleton is also being displayed.

A new one, and I think that (Photo above) is Prony’s daughter. It’s really huge, didn’t bother to touch it but I was able to slightly moved my camera closer to it. Baka kasi gutom tapos ganern, lol.

You can buy your souvenir items on the exit area where a small snake also awaits for you to donate any amount for its food. So since Kenneth found Php5 inside the van earlier that day, he put it inside the box and the caretaker quickly placed the snake around Kenneth’s neck. I took photos of him, but I was that excited that all the photos I took were seemingly out of focus, nice. To spoil everyone, Kenneth’s smiles were hilarious. He told me he wasn’t even scared — duhh.

7. BACLAYON CHURCH (📍Baclayon, Bohol)

A must-visit! Baclayon Church is a historical site where tourists never forget to visit. This church is a witness to any of Bohol’s incidents and events. Remember that strong earthquake that hit Bohol last 2013? Baclayon church endured major damage including other churches around Bohol.

Baclayon church has a very dainty exterior. Unfortunately, we were not able to go in because it they’re closed during Sundays (I am not sure about this). Baclayon is still under renovation, for the meantime, masses are held beside the church.

Again, thank you for reaching this far. Hope you enjoyed my little tour. Posting the 3rd and the last part of our Bohol trip soon. So that’s it! May you have a beautiful soul journey.

  1. I enjoyed reading this as much as I did in part 1! Bohol has so much to offer. History + culture. I think we might visit Cebu within this year, I hope I’ll have the opportunity to visit Bohol too and enjoy the place. Also, the photos are great!
