The island of Bohol in the Philippines is still backward in many ways, but its closeness to nature is part of the island's charm. Amidst the rice fields and fishing villages, you'll find some very surprising things: unnatural-looking rounded hills as far as the eye can see, a mysterious island past a mangrove forest, a goggle-eyed primate that fits in your hand, and dazzling white-sand beaches on the next island across the bridge.

In the next few pages, we'll count down the most interesting sights you'll see when you visit Bohol, less than an hour's plane ride from the Philippine capital Manila. Visitors can reach Bohol via Tagbilaran Airport, then take a tricycle, hotel airport transfer, or hired car to any of the destinations in this list.
