Lunch at Loboc Floating Restaurant and Sightseeing at Man Made Mahogany Forest in Tagbilaran Bohol

Next set of indulging spots in Tagbilaran tour is the Loboc River. Loboc is about 24 kilometers from Tagbilaran City and it is the Bohol’s provincial capital. One of the most famous attraction in Loboc is the floating restaurant. It is not just a floating restaurant but also it will cruise on Loboc river to reach it's other end, so While eating Filipino and Boholano dishes, you can enjoy the scenic views on Loboc River.

The floating restaurant comprised of two boats connected where tables are well arranged. Inside, there's a lunch buffet style. You only need to pay Php 280.00 to get in on floating restaurant and inclusion of buffet lunch. By the way, some Bohol package tours includes free buffet there.

About the foods, it's all delicious. There are grilled meats, soup, sea foods, vegetables, native delicacies, fresh fruits and fresh desserts.They also have local band that will entertain you while eating. They usually play Boholano songs. Riding and eating on Loboc's floating restaurant will truly complete you amazing Bohol getaway.

Man Made Mahogany Forest

Next Bohol's attraction we visited was the The Man Made Mahogany Forest. It's really amazing how can it be perfectly stood still through man's effort. It is a 2 kilometer stretch of densely planted Mahogany trees. It is located in the border of Loboc and Bilar towns.

The man-made Mahogany forest stands out because of it's uniformity in tree heights and the thickness when Mahogany trees brought together. And through that, entering the first road where Mahogany trees welcomes you, you can feel the temperature changed. You've been on an air conditioned car so exactly you feel cold right then but try to walk outside the forest, the temperature is not really cold compare when you're inside the forest.

You can also see dark shaded roads due to thick leaves above. That really make the place attractive. Some say's they are creepy due to Mahonay tree huge roots that crawled over the boulders and almost reached the side of the road. But for me it's not. It's a highly recommended place for you to visit and experience!.
