And this is something Filipinos must be proud of!


The most popular beach resort for all tourists! Boracay is a tropical island about an hour's travel by plane from Manila. It is a tiny spot of a beautiful paradise about seven kilometers long and only one kilometer wide.

The Chocolate Hills In Bohol And The World's smallest monkey

The Chocolate Hills can be found on the island of Bohol in the Central Visayas.

The Chocolate Hills has exactly 1,268 hills in number, sizes vary from 30 metres to the biggest having 120 metres in height. They are an awesome sight. From a distance they look completely well- proportioned like a half ball shaped that has grown out of the ground. They get their name from the fact that, when the leafs become brown, during the dry season they resemble chocolate hill. As you can see from the photo on thumbnail, they are somewhat unique and it is hard to imagine that mother earth could create such nice and numerous perfect domed- shape hill.

The Chocolate Hills are seen over an area of 49 square kilometers, spread throughout the towns of Carmen, Sagbayan and Sierra Bullones in the center of Bohol Island itself. However, up to now, even experts have not reached concurrence on how they where formed. The most acceptable geological theory is that the hills were the result of the weathered formations from thousands of years ago.


Said to be the smallest monkey in the world, its classification is confusing although formalist point out it’s not a monkey,.They are characterized by their thin fingers, small bodies and a pair of huge eyes. The Philippine tarsier can turn its head at 180 degrees. It needs to do this because the socket of its eyes could not move. Oh and these little tarsiers look very slow and relaxed, just like a Koala, but don’t let that fool you because they move really fast. Fortunately, the tarsiers are harmless and pretty laid back so you can definitely take some pictures next to them or even holding or touching them!
