For the past 23 years of my life, I never imagined myself that one day, I’ll have this guts to travel alone. Not until last August 2015…
Something happened at work that forced me to take my 3 days vacation so a week before my scheduled leave, my mind is full of where-to-go’s and what-to-do’s. You might be asking why of all places, I chose Bohol? Simply because during that time, Air Asia is only offering Seat Sale to Tagbilaran for 800Php+ (one way).
And why am I traveling solo? This is for the reason that, no one is available to be my travel buddy. So sad! 😦
But hey, that doesn’t mean this is a “no go!” , because they say “When opportunity knocks on your door, always be willing to take a chance, because you never know how perfect something could turn out to be” =)
So how’s my #MikayGoesSolo to Bohol adventure? Find out below 🙂
Where did I stay?
One of Bohol’s main attraction is Panglao and one of the pleasant yet affordable place to stay here is Dumaluan Beach Resort. Miss Kathy Cubero is the one who arranged my resort reservation. You can contact her via :

Here are my sample photos of the resort :
The biggest challenge of #MikayGoesSolo is to find a relaxing and affordable beachfront hotel/resort in Panglao. It took me 3 weeks to filter my options down to 3 resorts (out of 7). Then I finally decided to book a room at Dumaluan Beach Resort. I can say, it's the MOST AFFORDABLE, considering the good service and the resort's perfect location 👌🏼 // #BOHOL2015 #vsco #vscocam #vscogood #vscophile #vscogram #vscodaily
Oh I forgot to mention, this resort’s location is relaxing as well. You can chill, read a book, or simply watch the calm beach (starting 2pm onwards, the beach is low tide).
The resort offers you a perfect view of Dumaluan White Beach.
This is what the beach looks like at around 4pm…
And, this is my ultimate favorite view…
