Instagram Travel: island hopping in Visayas

As she’s only here for 8 days and I have just started on a new job, we made sure that she’d be able to see the Philippines under the urban/metro and rural/nature sense.

Our first stop after she roamed the streets of Taguig, Makati and Manila is the naturally-gifted province of Bohol.

I provided her with the top tourist destinations’ main selling points and at the mention of Tarsier, the world’s smallest primate (or so we thought), our itinerary finally had its anchor.
