Tagbilaran City is a good place to be and while you are here, don't miss the opportunity to drop by at Island City Mall; the biggest shopping mall in Bohol. ICM is located at Dao District Tagbilaran city in front of its public market. I'm sure you will love the experience you will gonna obtain upon dropping by at Island City Mall.
