Reader Comments on 'The Chocolate Hills'

The Chocolate Hills are probably Bohol's most famous tourist attraction. Most people who first see pictures of this landscape can hardly believe that these hills are not man-made. However, up to this day, even geologists can not explain how they where formed.

We love traveling to the Filippines. We are from Belgium and we where in the Filippines at 22 november 2013 after the Tyfoon Haiyan. Read our travelogue in dutch and use google translation, and see our many pictures of the Philippines. We have been on the islands of Cebu, Negros and Bohol. We where do suba diving and have drawn around. I advice to visite Negros and Bohol. Don't go only for scuba diving, but visit also the main land and the people. This is my privately non commercial page http://www.adcdiving.be/filippijnen-duiken-cebu-2013.html Lots of fun with watching our pictures.

Chocolate Hills is an awesome place to be with, the view and the atmosphere of the place is so relaxing. So, Upon visiting that place, you may feel you want to have a souvenirs for your love ones waiting for your homecoming from vacation and some stuff you may want to give them so I will invite you to visit Island City Mall located at Dao Tagbilaran City. Island City Mall is good place to shop with and get everything you wish for! You what are you thinking of?, pay to visit Island City Mall.

ACCORDING TO SCIENCE.....500 million yrs ago......there was a volcanic activity under this land...and the soils move upwards due to intense heat, if erupted those hills could be a vent however it did not resulted to eruption thats why it forms as hills. If you notice we have a volcanic vent which is the mambajao volcano?.. Observe the rice cooker when you cook rice when it is about to dry it forms like a small hills, just very similar explanation with the hills in Carmen.

Sa mga pupunta pa lang ng bohol, I suggest na mag rent na lang kayo ng car (w/driver para mapili nyo yung talagang gusto nyong puntahan. Kami pinagsama namin yung countryside and panglao tour sa car rental service pero selected na yung tourists spots na pupuntahan. Hindi na namin pinuntahan ibang places like butterfly farm, python kasi marami naman yan dito sa Metro Manila and nearby provinces. Bale P2000 new car pag countryside tour lang. Add na lang kayo ng konti para sa iba pang spots for Panglao) Make sure lang na pag dating nyo ng Loboc River Cruise paalis na yung boat para hindi sayang sa oras kasi yung natapat na boat sa amin nag hintay pa sa ibang passengers. Sabihin nyo din sa driver dalhin kayo sa Loboc Eco-Tourism Adventure Park. Pwede kayo mag zip line at cable car dun. P350 yung zip line tapos pwede kayo kunan ng pics habang nasa zip line kayo. Price ng pics w/cd and 1 printed copy of your chosen photo is P250. There are approximately 50+ shots sa isang cd. Very thankful kami sa driver (Rowell) kasi dinala nya kami dito kahit wala talaga sa itinerary namin ito. Dito kami talaga sa Loboc Eco-Tourism Adventure Park nag enjoy ng husto. By the way, yung driver din namin is para na ring tour guide kasi habang nasa car and tourist spots marami na syang share na info/history sa amin.

We are two senior ladies, my sister and I, we visited Bohol via ferry from Cebu. For us it is a homecoming as our grandfather and elders are form Bohol; altho my siblings and me were born in Metro Manila. Our plan was to stay overnight in Bohol, but the beauty of our native province was so overwhelming we stayed another 2 days! Chocolae Hills was the best, altho a swim at the Panglao beach cannot be surpassed. We rented a car to tour us. The hill mounds were green, so much vegetation that it was already difficult to see the round shapes, it didnt look like chocolate mounds to us. so I just pretended that I was looking at brown mounds lol. Due to bad arthritis we were able to tread the way up to the top; there is another path which is wheelchair friendly so it was okay. the topview was the best, nothing like it, much better than a view of the grand canyons. I will definitely return and visit more our ancestral town, Maribojoc.

The Chocolat Hills were well worth the visit. We hired a guy on a tricycle for the day to take us there for 1500 pesos and we stopped at various other sights en route so all in all well worth the money. Took us 1hr 45min in tricycle to come back with no stops.

Its a one of a kind nice tourism project.A trip to see this place goes to see old churches,nice beaches shoreline with coconut linings,tarsier, giant snakes, and the ricefields...OH!!! its a worthwhile remembering

in response to the last post, it is simple to get from cebu to bohol, you catch the super cat ferry from the pier to bohol, then arrange a private car for the day which includes the tour guide/driver, this costs approx 1800pesos in total, you will have to pay for some extra costs along the way,such as admission, parking etc. It is possible to see the major sites in one day such as Chocholate Hills, tarsier sanctory, cruise and lunch on the river, python snake, butterfly plus historical churches, if you start off early and get the later ferry back to Cebu at 6pm departure... For this to run smoothly , you will have to book your tour guide to meet you at the ferry terminal in bohol, call the tourist information office on Alona Beach to arrange. Enjoy

Hi. I'm not sure if this is the right place to file a complaint. Probably not, but in any case, I thought it seemed right for me to let you guys know about how utterly disappointed I am with my visit to Chocolate Hills. My family and I spent the holidays in Bohol. We planned to tour around the city and go to places which Bohol is famous for- Panglao, EAT Danao, River Cruise, and yes, Chocolate hills. When we arrived at Chocolate Hills, we parked near the restaurant. A parking attendant named "BING" told us we could not park our vehicle there or in any area in the rotunda because it was ONLY for drop off, as stated in the executive order. That was fine, I guess if that is their rule, however, we saw at least 10 vehicles parked there with no drivers waiting at all. So we complained about it saying it was not fair to let us park all the way down the entrance gate of the chocolate hills when others were simply parking there on top. BING was very rude and crass, and he simply told us that if we do not want to follow THEIR rule then we should just leave the place and he will gladly refund our money. THAT IS NO WAY TO TREAT VISITORS! And besides, how can you expect us to PARK 2 kilometres down the road WITHOUT ANY SHUTTLE to take us on top and back? VERY BAD SERVICE INDEED. To the management of Chocolate Hills and to the Dept of Tourism, you need to do something about this. Your parking attendant BING and his "FRIENDS" there were very rude. And also, if that is your rule, make sure you are tourist-friendly enough to get a SHUTTLE and not let us walk 30 minutes each way, instead.

Between 1980 and 1982, I undertook a quest to find out if large manmade mounds exist in the Philippines. Obviously, Bohol would be on top of the list since it was the Bohol hills that inspired this curiosity in the first place. I eventually found one that appears to qualify as manmade, but it was not in Bohol. When I visited the Chocolate Hills in 1980 I was fotunate to come accross one smaller hill that was partially sliced to accomodate a road being constructed. From the soil profile I concluded that it was natural and contained intact evidences that indicated that it was once under water. After years of trying to figure out how and when these hills came to be, I believe I finally have the answer.

In my 2 weeks stay in bohol, i really appreciate the island since i never been into places which i consider as hideaway from populated city like manila..I would say that bohol is very blessed with breathtaking places. FYI.. I went to chocolate hills, sagbayan peak, loboc river, panglao particularly dumaluan beach resort, man made forest in bilar, was able to see python in albur, in blood compact, bohol plaza, hinagdanan cave, baclayon church and the best is the dolfin watching, snorkling and island hopping at pamilacan and balicasag island...oppps, before i forget i was there at puntod island which they consider as the virgin island of bohol..KUDOS to BOHOL.

The one thing not being told is, that the Philippine govt actually created these hills themselves as a tourist trap. Inside each hill is 166 fililipo peasants blowing air into a large cone shape balloons. If you sneak out and spy on the hills in the middle of the night, u can see Filipino peasants painting each hill chocolate brown for the tourist delight. How do i know this? I used to be in charge of hill #1114 until i released my peasants and set them free and got fired. Now i want to tell the world!!!

It's God alone who created all the world's wonders and from the mighty to the small, the glory in them all is from him and for him. He wants men and women to know him and display His glory in all of His creations. No wonder, I voted Chocolate Hills as the world's number one!

Hello i can tell you, when i was there on chocolate hills i could feel the magic of the place, like an energy coming up. the trip from bohol beach to chocolate hills is worth as well, driving through the rice-fields with friendly and smiling people working with their caribao. see you soon, Arogo is coming back soon :-)

This is the place were my parents meet and fall in love with each other. Till the years gone by, they have a daughter name Aloya and that's me. They told me about the legend of having this famous tourist spot in the world, the tale of Arogo and Aloya. Arogo, a young and very strong giant who fell in love with an ordinary mortal girl named Aloya. After she died, the giant Arogo cried and his tears turned into hills, as a lasting proof of his lonely life without Aloya. That sounds romantic right?! Now me and my family are presently residing here in Carmen, Bohol. I'm thinking when I could have like Arogo in my life... Hehehehe, still single!!!

Chocolate Hills is a must-see place not only in Bohol but in the whole country! Ganda talaga, But i think the attraction of Bohol is not only its beautiful and natural scenery but most especially is its people, the Boholenos. Marunong talagang tumanggap ng bisita. I just wish that they would remain sincere and friendly to their visitors. Babalik talaga ako sa Bohol!

I am originally from Cavite and left the Philippines in 1968 to join the United States Navy. I had been all over the world but somehow never been to the different islands in the Philippines not until last January 2007 when my wife Tess and I, went to visit Davao. I was impress with Davao so we decided that everytime we visit the Philippines we are going to see the different islands. Last November 12-13, 2007 we visited Bohol and of course Chocolate Hills in Carmen. What a wonderful sight and now I have been telling friends here in the states to visit Bohol especially The Chocolate Hills. The people are very friendly and the city, towns, and barrios that we had been through are ecologically sound. Go visit Bohol!

I am a true-bodied Boholano, but I was away from my beloved Bohol since 1983. I was not able to return Bohol since then, that's the main reason that i keep of looking news about this mystical place. I travelled half of the globe but fails to visit Bohol, this coming summer my dream might be granted for I had a plan to visit the place with my family. I am from Barangay Agape, Loboc, Bohol. I am really so proud and happy to have seen such site like this. More power guys! I am so proud to be a Bol-anon!

I visited "Chocolate Hills" some 13 years ago (I was just in my junior high school then). My cousins brought me there. It was splendid! How I wish I could visit Bohol again and bring my 3-year-old son and husband to see such wonderful view. I'm married for 4 years now and yet my husband (a Caviteño) and son haven't visited my home province. My aunts are inviting us to come over and attend the BUTRON CLAN reunion on May 2008. I don't know if my boss would let me take a one-week leave. You see, I'm one of his "action man". I'll keep my fingers crossed and I'd try to ask for boss' permission. I miss visiting Bohol... I miss my relatives (BUTRON & BALBIDO CLANS) and friends there... I miss the very accommodating and friendly people of Tagbilaran City, Sierra Bullones and Loboc (all in Bohol). I miss my dear friends Boyett Unajan, Aisa Arabejo, Clarissa Unajan-Reyes.

I am a boholana by heart and soul and whereever i go, i always remain a boholana. I have been away from our province for the last 30 years and have not been home since 1991. Currently, I am at UPLos Banos, College, Laguna. I am very glad indeed that our province has its own website, whenever i feel homesick and lonely i just go to the website. In my simple way of helping our tourism industry, I encourage my friends both local and foreign to visit our province citing our very good tourists spots. I really miss bohol and i'm really looking forward to visit soon. Keep up the good work, keep on updating our website and more power.

Hi Everybody! Welcome to Carmen, Bohol to see the amazing hills, the CHOCOLATE HILLS which the Carmenian are proud of. These are the great art of the Living and Mighty God who created the heavens and earth. Sagbayan is my home town which is next to Carmen Bohol. I'm proud of being "Bolanon" because of these things, the treasures of nature given by our God as gifts. When I went up to the hill I felt the presence of God and it reminded me of God's victory over many temptations. It's really wonderful to be in these hills. In spring the hills look like green but in summer they look like brown chocolate. So we called them chocolate hills. Once upon a time the legend says, there were giants in this place. They were fighting and throwing brown soil balls made by themselves and those soil balls became hills when they reached to the ground, that's why people called them chocolate hills. Do you know the smallest monkey in the world? The Tarsier? You can find them only in this place. They are very tiny monkeys. Do you want to see them? Feel free to come to this area. Just visit my hometown. I'm welcoming you there. Yes, there is another one hill, we called it Sagbayan peak. It's really beautiful. Try to visit us, you won't regret the real experience in your life. See you there. Oh, tell me before you go there because I'm in China now. Maranatha! Robert Gedaro

Wow, The site from there is amazing. I've been there twice with my family, my dads side anyway. My dad insisted on seeing Chocolate hills so we drove from sagbayan to go see it. The place is nice, but if you ask me a bit unfinished. I mean, for being the most famous tourist spot in Bohol, you think they'd fix it up a bit. It's not as nice as Sagbayan Peak. We didn't stay the night but we did stay for lunch in this pleasant cafe. And we did swim in the pool, but we found it hard to believe they maintained it weekly. It was a bit dirty, and we had to go down several steps to get to it. But aside from the place, the view was spectacular. I reccomend this place to everyone.

First is through the 214 steps and second is through the Sagbayan peak. The place is really nice and I assure you that People there are very nice people.

As I said earlier, one need not examine all 1200 hills to make sense of what they are. Just take one hill to examine. I bet it will generate lots of information. Then, one can ask the following questions. Are they natural, or are they man-made? One can't compare tropical Bohol to desert like Egypt. Tropical Bohol could not preserve materials used by ancient Bohol people. Whatever materials were available then deteriorated quickly due to its tropical weather. While the sandy, dessert Egypt preserved many remnant materials from the past.

Did anyone think of excavating at least one of those "Chocolate Hills" to find out if they were once a city....that those were buildings built thousands of years ago. After all, the Visayan Culture is ancient. It would be nice to find out and and see what's underneath the grasses and soil of these hills.

“Cynics have all of the questions, but none of the answers”

Firstly there is a fine line between skepticism and cynicism, and I fall within the former. Also if science is more than just logic (which I of course agree upon) then why have these seemingly superior tools not discovered the hills origin? And responding to the statement I made about religion(s) whitewash of ancient history, well then you only need to read a few books my friend. The library at Alexandria: destroyed, Mayan's text: 90% destroyed or hidden, Catholicism has swept the ancient world and kept much at bay within the Vatican, and the suppression of pagan rituals and rites have continued to this day. The only reason that I mentioned the Abrahamic faiths is that they are the most powerful, and have the most to lose, so if I am wrong about the Abrahamic faiths namely Christianity then I will concede. However, my initial statement about how these hills cannot be man-made simply because their construction would be grander than the Great Pyramids is still, in my opinion, bullocks. If that is the reasoning of great scientists and scholars, then what can we expect from the ignorant masses?

Post Script: Just pointing out the obvious flaw in your assessment of the hills. That just because their construction would rival that of the Great Pyramids, does not mean that they cannot be man-made. My point of view is not cynicism, it is skepticism, for I have some suggestions that would inevitably serve as answers; namely excavation. But, I suppose I am just a simpleton in your superior viewpoint! Cheers, happy Hanukkah.

You are right that just because the task appears to be difficult, is no reason it cannot be done. However, if you visit the pyramids, and look carefully, you will find many traces of human activity. You will see villages of workers, old quarries, with some stones still partly chopped out, etc. None of this can be found near the Chocolate Hills.

One of the strengths of science is that it knows its limitations, and do admit where they do not have the answer, so holding it against science they haven't reached a conclusion yet is unjustified. Given time and research, we will surely learn to understand the Chocolate Hills better.

I think holding religion responsible for the destruction of ancient cultures is an exaggeration. It is true many traditions have disappeared as a result of conversion. If you have ever been to the Vatican museum, like we have, you will find one of the biggest collections of ancient art and cultural artifacts in existence, which have been carefully preserved for centuries. We owe it to Muslim translators and researchers that many works from the Greek antiquity have been preserved while Europe was going through its Dark Ages. The Jewish religion never had the drive to proselytize or build empires. I think the true culprit is plain and simple greed, I admit greed often operating under the guise of religion, but greed none the less.

José Rizal tried to show, by republishing De Morga's history, that Filipino culture had actually declined and not improved under three centuries of Spanish rule, and also exposed the highly corrupt and greedy nature of the "frailocracy."

As final remarks, my article was not intended to be scientific, and I do not assume my audience to be simpletons. Merry Christmas, and the best for 2007!--Jeroen.

I find it hard to imagine that the average human being would quickly abandon the "idea... as the effort would surely surpass the construction of the pyramids in Egypt’s" that the chocolate hills could in fact be man made. Whoever wrote this conclusion, which also shows up on other websites verbatim, must not know how to use logic. To say that something couldn't exist, or doesn't exist, or could not have happened a certain way, only because it was never heard of before; frankly is asinine. Ever since youth I have been continually disappointed by the “expert” opinion, and how it uses illogical conclusions to disprove logical assumptions. Funny thing is that the scientific community still has not agreed upon the genesis of these “structures.” I can only conclude that the Abrahamic faiths have whitewashed much of the world’s ancient history. Cheers to your “logical” and oh so “educational” Website.

Cynics have all of the questions, but none of the answers. There is more to science than logic, and the primary source of scientific knowledge is observation; logic is merely a bunch of rules to put some order in our reasoning about things. Since I am not a follower of any of the Abrahamic faiths, I won't feel offended, but I believe the conclusion that these faiths have whitewashed much of ancient history without any supporting evidence is just as rash as concluding that the Chocolate Hills are man-made, as the evidence to the contrary is overwhelming, and that is basically what this article claims in response to fanciful pseudo-scientific suggestions.--Jeroen.

Chocolate Hill, what a place. It is nice but different. One of a kind. There is none like that here in Canada, nor in Europe. I did enjoy my trip, and never will know when the time may come that I will ever get back there again.

Of course without doubt, Chocolate Hills Bohol is unique within its place, uniform and shape to all whom experience this remarkable attraction, but Philippine local residents within and around community towns will only suggest a small legendary thought of how its tale existance became reality. Many people will never know until answered through underground evidence, of what might lie beneath the amonst the hundreds, of thousand hills.

I was there last year (early November 2005) and the government run resort-hotel on chocolate hill was operational. coming back this september 2006 with friends. we plan to stay overnight there. my mother used to pasture her 'carabao' in the chocolate hills area in the late 1940s. yes, it's as sentimental journey for me. hope to meet some relatives there. on my last visit, people are friendly especially the tanods who acted as part of the security group. the local government is also doing a good job in maintaining the place.

Just got back from Bohol and noticed that someone was looking for a reasonable decent place to stay in Bohol. Aluna Tropical in Bohol.....a beautiful place to stay....1800 pecos for air-con hut on the beach. You can also locate a local driver with car to take a day long tour i.e, Chocolate Hills, 15th Century Cathedral, River Boat and Falls(not the greatest, and Tarsier Monkey (smallest monkey in the world. It was $20 for the day. Dolphin watching is also fun - we paid 1200 pecos, pick you up at 6am, then after dolphins they will take you snorkeling in Balicasan and then Virgin Island. Lots of fun.

My friends are planning to go to the Chocolate Hills early next month via plane. Can anyone tell me how many hours the trip from Cebu airport to the Chocolate Hills and what are the rides going there, and so as the fares. Thnx a lot!

From Cebu (Mactan) airport you'll have to take a ride to the pier, then a boat to Tubigon or Tagbilaran, and then a Bus or V-Hire to the Chocolate Hills complex. This will take you several hours at least. If you're coming from Manila, it is probably easier to fly directly to Tagbilaran and take a V-Hire from there, which will take only one hour.--Jeroen.

I've been in Bohol last nov.4-6, 2005 and of course, I visited the famous Chocolate hills.. Its a real beauty of nature! I cant resist myself admiring the place.. as we go up the 213 steps stairs going up to the chocolate hills complex, I cant stop myself from going up and up and up more to the top to be able to reach the wishing well. It was my first time and I'm really very grad to have seen chocoate hills... I would also like to comment on the article here..please update the one in WHERE TO STAY part so people be informed about developments... the CHOCOLATE HILLS HOTEL AND RESTAURANT is already finished and are now ready for occupancy... aircon room rates ranges from 600-1000 depending upon number of tenants. For guest who would wish to stay in a non-aircon room, they can avail a room with a budget cost of 350.. so far, thats the latest update.. Thanks to our tourist guide motorist, Roselo Cinches who made this trip a real enjoyable one...hope to see you again in my visit to Bohol.. :-)

During my childhood years, I cannot remember a year without visiting the World Famous CHOCOLATE HILLS! When I was in Bohol, I used to go there atleast once a year! That means there are years we go there 2-3 times! Those times when the SWIMMING POOL was still in perfect shape! Chocolate Hills is very accessible place, all we did is take either a bus or habal-habal (motorcycle) ride from CARMEN Town proper and it only take few minutes and we were there in Chocolate Hills. The BEST FUN is to walk from the bottom of the hill going up, just follow the cement road trail going up and you will enjoy the transition of different hillside views at different elevations. When you reach the middle level area (end of road going up), check out the accomodations, restaurants, shops, pool then start heading for the STAIRS! The most rewarding experience of being there! You will make hundreds of steps going up in a matter of day and at the peak of the long stairs journey you will see even better view of the hills all around you at 360 degrees! Very rewarding! Of course there are several rest stops within the stairs with covered balcony where you can relax and take a deep breathe. Dont forget to visit the Virgin Mary SHRINE in one of the rest stop. Thats my advise, from a PURE BOHOLANA, with years of experience going to Chocolate Hills! Have Fun

Hi! I just want to ask if I will come from Ubay Bohol, How will I reach chocolate hills? What are the nearest beach/scenic views that I my be able to visit? Where is the nearest affordable hotel/pension house to stay? Hoping for your reply..

If you come from Ubay, it will take several hours to go to Chocolate hills. The chocolate hills complex is located in Carmen, while the Sagbayan Peak in Sagbayan. You can see on the map how far it would be for you to travel. You can take a bus to Trinidad and from there you can take a bus going to Carmen. It might be possible that there is a bus from Ubay going directly to or passing through Carmen. If you want to visit the famous tourist spots in Bohol, I suggested you to stay in Panglao or Tagbilaran. From there it would be easy for you to travel to different places or to organize your trip. I think Ubay and its neighborhood also have beautiful places to offer; especially mangroves particularly in Jetafe and it might have some magnificent places that are not yet discovered or promoted for tourism. Besides Panglao, Anda has its long white beaches as well. During low tide, the long white beach will impress you. Unlike Boracay, it is still not yet well developed for tourism. But there are some resorts already, in which you can enjoy and relax. You can still pick up shells on the beach.---Rodelyn

So, when I got a chance to see them, i really didn't hesitate to go and yet it was satisfyihg, and im very proud that it's really beautiful. U will relly think how they become that much of hills. Before, when my friends from manila will ask me how nice to see the Chocolate hills, i have nothing to answer, coz i've never been though im from Bohol, so i will just say its nice as what i know and as what people say. But now, whenever they will ask me, Im very proud to say that its really beautiful that u will never find them anywhere else in the world. So, come and Visit the Gorgeous Chocolate hills, so you will see and and can say how beautiful really they are!!

The Chocolate Hills certainly are Gods precious gift for the Boholanos..The place is really beautiful, the hills sorrounding are so attractive that no one cease the feeling of counting.I've been there so many times, i always wanted to stay longer in the place but the hotels are not many to occommodate the visitors. I just hope investors roll up and build hotels on the foot of the hills...I can see good business in there. If only my resources suit the needs i would do the same. Thanks to the good people of Bohol for taking good care and augmenting the natural resources of the province..The chocolate hills are only part of your island treasure, the beaches, the tarsiers, the rivers and the good food are also there, make the most promotions out of those.. then you'll see everything turn out good at the end.God Bless Bohol, God Bless the Boholanos...

I used to lived 5 minutes away from the CHOCOLATE HILLS and now im living in the U.S with my parents but my grandma she still lives there so i went to visit her last year (1-11-04). i was suppose to stay for 3 months but i could help it to see more wonderful places and meet freindly people, that is why i stayed for a year. Trust me it is very nice over there.the weather is just perfect to chill in the beach with white sands. i've seen CHOCOLATE HILLS a thousand times, hopefully everybody could see it in with your own eyes. i just got back here in the state 2 months ago(12-27-04).. i want to go back so bad next year that is why i cant wait ... regards to all CARMENANON, friends, and the UNAJAN CLAN and FAMILY.............

It would be better if there's "helicopter-for-rent" so that we can go around above the hills. anyway, everytime I go to the Chocolate Hills, my faith in God increases!!! This spot is made by super-human hands!!! it's a good place for those who live in the borderland of faith. its a good place for solitude...

The only helicopter service I could find is in Manila. See Cebu Pacific. The price is about PHP 42.000 per hour, plus landing fees. Five can fly, which brings the cost down to about 8500 per hour per head. Some of the areal photographs on this website where taken from a government helicopter, but the pictures on this page were simply taken from the top of one of the hills.--Jeroen.

My mother is from Bohol, I've been wanting to visit bohol since i was little. Last 2001, I was supposed to finally go there but the trip was suspended because of my troubled Academics and my mom had a health problem, but everything is OK now. Now, Im already in my fourth year in Architecture, I was thinking of a LOBOC Arts and Music Center as my Thesis, hope I could pursue it. I just chnaced up on this site, I am researching about Panglao Island, our present plate is to design a Domestic Airport for Panglao and I just thought of posting here. Anyway, I hope I could visit bohol soon.

My cousin's gonna be there sometime next week, he has never been to the Philippines but he decided to go island hop around the visayas, he'll be stopping by Bohol.

So if you want to see something unique, try visiting Carmen Bohol's Chocolate Hills!

People should really see this place before touring outside the country. You don't have to go far to be in paradise, not to mentioned the serene beaches in Bohol.

One objective of this website is to promote domestic tourism to Bohol, and show Filipinos, that is, those who can afford holiday trips, but never leave Manila, except to go to Thailand or Taiwan, the beauty of their own country. The website even wants to show those who can't afford a trip easily the beauty of Bohol.--Jeroen.

I just cherish the photos my sister gave me when she and her friends visited the province in 2003. I wish the DISCOVERY network here in the US feature this natural formations in depth so we can understand more scientifically how these hills came about. Natural or not, GOD still is the mastermind of all. :)

Up, on the viewing deck where we could see the site 360 degrees, we were lost for words. The hills just took our breath away!

I had visited bohol last may 8, 2004 and really, chocolate hills are trully amazing. I had talked to a couple of tourist friends(felix and allen which was from downtown manhattan, new york, usa) and indeed they had a positive feedback about this landscape. It trully indeed captured the hearts of every tourists wether local or foreign especially at daybreak where fogs were quite visible. For sure, i'll be coming back a couple of months from now.....Just a sort of advise, wag maging dayuhan sa sariling bayan.....Also,tourists love to dig deeper about the spot. There must be someone who will accompany with them for further explanations may be especially for the new ones...They really appreciate that move....And to the government officials, they must have reserved funds for renovations coz there were a lot of areas to be improved....Also, Bohol has a lot to offer, why not developed the Kilab-kilab falls, Mag-aso falls or even the one that is found in Pilar town(the dam i think..Or turn baxan(the biggest snake i'd ever found in albuquerque)into something that the government can benefit? A zoo for that matter...It's for our sake in the near future...isn't it...Kindly make a move....

Late April of 2004, we had a 3 days tour to bohol and we were all excited of to see this one of god’s amazing wonders, “Chocolate Hills”. It was really a good experience for all of us. As our tour guide always told us that there were 1,268 chocolate hills scattered in four towns in bohol. We when to Carmen were the 214 steps was located. 214 steps represents Feb. 14 because most of the lovers went their to watch the beautiful scenery. And also, we went to Sagbayan owned by a private sector where it has the good look also of the choco hills. To wrap it all, PAGKAGWAPO KAJUD SA BOHOL, TINDUT JAMU. Hoping we could visit again Bohol soon. A million thanks to boyet "The Tarsier Man" tour guide.

The chocolate hills was really amazing. But the best experience in bohol was the beach and the island @ Mantata-o Calape Bohol. It was the best i've gone so far. we are like stuck in a little cottage that only us in the middle of the sea and if we will ask something from the island, we will just text him and after that a motorboat will be there to have your request. we stay there overnight. It was the best experience in my life. BOHOL number 1.

The Chocolate Hills are very attractive with its amazing hundreds of hills. Actually my mother used to live there when she was a child, and now when she is all grown up, she always tell stories about the Chocolate Hills like the two giants that is also written here. I often see the pictures of the Chocolate Hills and I can't help to cut it on the news paper and bring it home. For short the Chocolate Hills really amaze me and it really relaxes us when we see the views of it. So thats all and keep the staff on its cool and realistic writing about the Chocolate Hills.

Chocolate Hills was one of the nicest tourist spot I ever been in the country with those hills that looks great the site and the affordable foods, I was visiting Bohol last week and I enjoyed my stay down there, anyway some comments you should put the Sagbayab Peak its also a nice destination, though it was still underconstruction but it look nice as chocolate hills, more power.

Hi, We're planning to to Bohol, does anyone know the exact address in Chocolate Hills? Thanks a lot.

Just ask for the Chocolate Hills, and everybody in Bohol will know where to go. No address needed.--Jeroen.

Hi! I noticed that your "tourism" menu does not include areas such as parks and other natural and man-made sights. You can thus include Rajah Sikatuna National park, Roxas park somewhere in Garcia-Hernandez (I think).. and how about one of the biggest mangroves in Asia, in Jetafe? not to mention the man-made forest and Magsaysay camp in Bilar, the Himontagon hills in Loay, the Loboc river cruise... I could go on and on! there's so much to see. For those of you planning a tour, three days will not be enough, especially during April and May, with the fiestas too! Still, good job with the website!

Hi Yasmin, The reason I not yet mention some of these places is that I haven't been able to visit them and/or write a story about them. All visitors to this website are welcome to write a small story about any of these places, or whatever nice experience they've had on Bohol, and I will be happy to publish it on-line. So, if you find anything missing on this site, and you have valuable information or interesting stories for our visitors, please don't hesitate to go ahead and share them with us! This website is still mostly a one-man operation, but really intended to be a collaberative work for the promotion of Bohol.--Jeroen.

Such a work of wonder is the Chocolate Hills in your place Bohol. The first time was awesome and will never be the last. Strong impression was made which prompted me to write an article about it. It's not for publication though but for submission as an assignmnent of mine. Thanks for the information provided too through this net. I am a Taclobanon who is inlove with a Boholano, probbably another reason why I have a liking with this place.

I read in disgust at the news of president Arroyo approving an amendment to a law that protects the land in between and around the Chocolate Hills. Apparently, these areas of land are no longer part of the national monument and therefore can be developed. I am so glad to see the Chocolate Hills for the first time coming April. Who knows what this natural wonder will look like 10 years from now? This thoughtless intervention could spell the death of the Chocolate Hills....

I haven't seen the proclamation, so don't know what will be its impact, but I do know that the Chocolate Hills are a unique landscape, truly worth preserving...--Jeroen.

'pagandahin' - did you mean build wider roads, and tall hotel buildings? The beauty of these hills lie in their natural and 'untouched' state. Maybe, with less money coming in, there will be more people who can enjoy the real Bohol for many more years to come.

The current state of affairs at the Chocolate Hills complex is really sad. The old rooms are run down, and desperately need some upgrading; the new construction is unfinished, and even when finished, it will not be an attractive building. It will probably be best to pull down the new construction, and renovate the existing low-rise buildings, using the available space efficiently, but with respect for the unique environment it is located in. Building ugly concrete buildings is not what we should want here.

Commercially spoken, I also have my doubts with the location. The Chocolate Hills are unique, and absolutely worth a visit, but for most tourists a stay of a couple of hours will be enough, and a basic restaurant, a clean CR, a small exposition, and a small souvenir shop all they require. I have stayed at the complex, and can attest that seeing the sun-rise and the early morning fog over the hills is a fantastic view, but even then you don't have a reason to stay for more than one night. That is, unless somebody would be willing to organise this as a kind of 'base-camp' for a number of activities that can take place in the inland of Bohol, such as for example mountain biking, trekking, bird-watching in the Raja Sikatuna National Park, spelunking, etc., but this will require a rather pro-active attitude from the management. If such a management can be found, and the scale of the complex can be kept within limits, it can still become something nice. -- Jeroen.

The last time I saw the chocolate hills was in 1986, now based on your article, the hotel work is suspended. Back then, this is also what they told me. Where is the money? The first big picture that you will see in NAIA, when I arrived from the States, is of the Chocolate Hills, as if welcoming and inviting the tourist to come and visit me in Bohol. I believe that you have something beautiful there, that there is no other place that they can find. So please tell the people involved to release the funds.

Money earmarked for a project disappearing is a common problem in the Philippines, leaving behind partly finished constructions to be eyesores for years. In Bohol we also have a number of examples of this, such as the Agora Market in Tagbilaran, the Loboc bridge next to Loboc church, and the Chocolate Hills Complex. And if we could also count the number of roads NOT concreted, even though budget has been approved for that purpose several times...

Exposure doesn't seem to help much: huge signs with each of the unfinished project often tell you exactly who were responsible for starting it. But then they lost the next elections, funds were suddenly missing, and their successors seem have other priorities... Still I have hope that, by constantly reminding the people who are responsible for such things that in the long term this state of affairs will hurt everybody, one day things will improve. It is the very reason that I started this website: improve knowledge and awareness of Bohol with potential tourists (including Boholano's living elsewhere), such that tourists will come in, and some money can be earned for improving things. -- Jeroen.

As far as my memory serves me better, it was during mid 90's where I'd happened to be a tourist guide for my classmates in high school, Blessed Trinity College, Batch '90. The swimming pool was not that huge, but it's really cold, though we dip into it, at about 11 am. Well, the food was great though I must admit it was a bit little late, because there were so many customers at that time, but it's still fine. Until now I haven't gone to that place, ever again.

Its nice giving update information regarding this tourist spot. Could you provide statistics or description on the tourism industry, if there are still tourists coming in despite the threats of Abu Sayyaf kidnappings in the country and terrorist activities like bombing. tnx

Some statistics are available in the "Doing Business in Bohol" article, which shows that the number of foreign visitors to the place have reduced dramatically during the last few years: from 33.000 in 1999 to a mere 8.000 in 2001. -- Jeroen.
