#1 – Take the skies!
If you want the fastest means of transportation to Bohol, an airplane ride would be necessary.
As of the time of writing this article:
- Domestic flights to and from 7 Philippine cities are available to enter and leave the island through the Tagbilaran Airport (TAG).
- Apparently, Bohol’s current Principal Class 1 airport, TAG, now accepts international flights from Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, and hopefully sooner, other countries, too.
- Because of the increasing eco-tourism in Bohol, there’s a new airport in Panglao designated to replace Tagbilaran Airport soon. The New Bohol International Airport’s name? Panglao Island International Airport.
Flight schedules? Tagbilaran Airport offers daily domestic flights and an average of 2 international trips a week from Bohol.
Book your Bohol airline tickets with Cebu Pacific Air (CebuPac), Philippine Airlines (PAL), and AirAsia Zest, Cathay Pacific, and other airlines here.
#2 – By sea
If you don’t enjoy plane rides and wouldn’t mind a longer travel time, go to Bohol by sea.
- Book ferry trips schedule to the Tagbilaran City Pier from Manila, Cebu, Dumaguete, Siquijor, and other islands.
- Ride a boat from Cagayan de Oro and Dipolog to the pier or hop on a boat from Camiguin to reach Jagna in southeast Bohol.
- Technically, you can do a Bohol Island hopping before or after your tour, or take the RoRo ride with your family and friends using your own/rented vehicle for a Bohol day tour DIY-style.
So have covered a few facts and trivias about Bohol and how you can reach the island in no time. Just a tip: make sure you book your Bohol airline tickets or ferry trips at least 3 months ahead of time to make the most out of the deals.
Bohol province may not be as popular as Boracay and Palawan, but with the Panglao Island International Airport almost done, you can expect more tourists to come visit. Don’t be left behind. Enjoy!
