Philippines Central Visayas – Cebu & Bohol

Philippines Central Visayas - Cebu & Bohol

The biggest problem planning a trip around the Philippines is the amount of choice available. There are so many islands and potential routes that it can become quite overwhelming. There are also limitations regarding transit options between the destinations you do want to visit. You have to be extremely selective in order to put together a practical, enjoyable plan. We finally decided on the Philippines Central Visayas – Cebu & Bohol: A good combination of beaches, jungle and local culture. Be sure to first check out our Plan, Maps and Budget for a 20-day round trip.
