On arrival at our hotel in Panglao Islands, Bohol Philippines we were introduced to a local guide whom we hired for the day to show us around the sights of Bohol. One attraction he recommended was the River Cruise from Loboc in the south of Bohol Island. Loboc River is one of top destinations in the island province of Bohol, aside from the Chocolate Hills and its Tarsiers. The town of Loboc is about 30 minutes ride from the city of Tagbilaran where the Tagbilaran Airport is located.
The ride was so refreshing and the view is breathtaking. The "eat all you can" buffet had a fair selection of Filipino food, although the quality was not exceptional. The length of time of travel is ok and the weather was perfect. Through the river it stopped at a floating hut where you watch a group of kids playing their guitars for us, singing and dancing. I found them entertaining and reflecting the people and the culture there. My husband and I really enjoyed that part!
