Bohol Bee Farm
Now the Bohol Bee Farm is most definitely my favorite Bohol attraction, here you can see how honey is harvested from honey-bees, they will explain the entire process, even allowing you to hold the honey-comb frame that holds the freshly made honey.

There are numerous old churches on the island of Panglao, all of which are so beautiful and offer tourist a unique experience, and the Saint Augustine Parish Church is not exception. Thee architecture for this Bohol church can be traced back to a very unique Baroque style that began around the 1600's in Rome, Italy, this style was used to produce grandeur.
