Do something different other than the typical things to do in Bohol by going on an evening boating trip in the Abatan River, a perfect opportunity to see a number of fireflies. This stream journey added with a local nearby supper in the waterfront town of Baclayon, is ideal for nature sweethearts and urban-inhabitants seeking tranquility in the island area. As you journey through the serene and still waters and oar more profound into the mangrove, the sound of crickets will pervade the century-old swamp, which shows a healthy ecosystem. En route, you will be seeing the riverside communities that benefit from the waterways, and in return, protect the area that sustains their livelihood along with the endangered flora and fauna that live in it. The hour-long ride will remunerate you with mysterious sights unpolluted air, and cool breezes brushing against your faces.

    Stop: 3 hours -
    Watching golden pteroptyx macdermotti fireflies float in the mangrove forests of Bohol, Philippines is one of nature's most bewitching spectacles. ... Our kayaks gently break the stars' reflections on the obsidian water, taking on a soft yellow glow as they glide beneath the mangrove trees.
