In the town of Batuan, a house that built like a shipping vessel is the newest attraction in Bohol also known as SHIPHAUS. The house is owned by Captain Gaudencio Dumapias a master Mariner. The house was opened to the public in late 2011.


Since it does resemble a ship both outside and inside, it also has captain’s cabin, mini bar and others.

Stretching up to two kilometers, a densely planted mahogany tree is located in the border of Loboc and Bilar towns.



LOBOC RIVER CRUISE RESTAURANT

We don’t have enough time to try river cruise restaurant, but here is the info, a minimum of Php 400.00 includes a buffet meal, a short cultural show and a river cruise.


XZOOTIC ANIMAL PARK

Located at Agape, Loay Xzootic Animal Park is a place to visit where you can see some exotic animals such as ostrich, owl, civet cat, bear cat and others. 

One of the main attractions here is the 200 kilograms Burmese python “Norio”.






BAMBOO HANGING BRIDGE

The bamboo Hanging Bridge which crossing the Sipatan River located at the Minicipality of Sevilla Bohol, is one of the enjoyable sightseer attraction.  The bridge spans around 40 meters and offers a nice view of the emerald Sipatan River. Also, you will find the ever famous “The Buko King”, known for his strong teeth that can strip a coconut for about ten seconds.

There are two bridges, you can cross on one bridge and come back on the other. It’s a one way system.



CLARIN ANCESTRAL HOUSE

If you are that type who wants to look back history, you may visit these centuries old Clarin Ancestral House located in Loay Town about 18 Kilometers from Tagbilaran City. A traditional Filipino-Spanish design way back to 1840. It was declared a heritage site by the National Historical Institute.



The house is owned by a former governor of Bohol, Don Aniceto Clarin. His son was the first senator of the 11th District, Jose Aniceto Butalid Clarin.
