Cross a hanging bridge made out of bamboo
The Bamboo Hanging Bridge in Bohol is by no means an engineering marvel, but it’s quite a lovely footway that offers overlooking views of the picturesque emerald river below. On the bridge’s other side, there are a few stores selling fresh coconut juice, cheap eats, and local delicacies.
