Cebu is the paradise for adventure seekers and nature lovers. It has some of the finest diving spots in the world. The UK-based Condenast Travellers Magazine named Cebu the 7th best island destination in the Indian Ocean-Asia region in 2007. Bohol is a popular tourist destination with its beaches and resorts. The Chocolate Hills, numerous mounds of limestone formation, is the most popular attraction. The island of Panglao is home to some of the finest beaches in the country. The Philippine Tarsier, considered by some to be the smallest primate, is indigenous to the island. The Loboc River is famous for its River Cruise going up to its water source.

Very nice postcard. I live in Bohol before and I love our small province. I like Cebu also. BTW, would you like to swap postcards with me? I'd like to receive one like that or a postcard which has a Visayas map in it.
