Can’t wait to swim in lapiz-colored water, dig your feet in the sand, climb hills, swim above coral gardens, cruise on majestic rivers, and experience delectable delicacies? Then set your eyes on Bohol as they reopen their doors with their Balik sa Bohol: Online Sale. Best of all, enjoy up to 70% off on booking rates, food, tours, and more.

“Balik sa Bohol” has a melodic genesis. Historically, it’s an original song performed by townsfolk who would often gather at the port when visitors depart. The song is a warm, upbeat, catchy invitation for visitors to return. As COVID-19 eases up and the country begins its first steps to recovery, the song is now a hymn for the gradual resumption of tourism activities in Bohol. It’s a melodic call to welcome back both local and foreign tourists to this amazing island.

Balik sa Bohol: Online Sale is an invitational initiative designed to rekindle Bohol’s local tourism, which has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. The sale offers discounts to as much as 70% on accommodations, food, tours, and other related tourism activities in participating brands. The online sale, which runs from February 21 to March 14, 2021, is organized by the private sector and fully supported by the Philippine Department of Tourism (DOT), the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB), and the Provincial Government of Bohol.
