I was going through my old photos and found these pretty pictures of Panglao Island. I thought about posting them here just to show how beautiful this place is and to give you ideas about a great vacation destination. These photos were taken during my vacation in Philippines last summer.
Let me give a little background about Panglao Island. It is an island in the Philippines located in Central Visayas, part of Bohol Island, east of Cebu. A couple of the island’s popular tourist pursuits are diving and island hopping. It’s also popular because of its pristine beaches. To get there, you can either fly from Manila directly to Tagbilaran City or from Manila to Cebu then take a 2 hours fast ferry ride from Cebu to Tagbilaran City. From Tagblaran City, it takes about an hour taxi ride to Panglao Island. There are other interesting places to visit to around Bohol as well. If you have plenty of time I recommend visiting Hinagdanan Falls; Loboc River where you will find the smallest primate, Tarsier or take a tour around the river on a floating restaurant; and enjoy the natural beauty of Chocolate Hills.
We stayed at Dumaluan 2 Beach Resort. It was not a very fancy hotel but for about a hundred dollars suite/ night, it was not bad at all. If money is not an issue, there are a lot of lavish hotels around that ranges from $200- $300/night or more.
