Paradise

Oct 30, 2011

The province of Bohol is one of the most visited places in our country. Foreign and local tourists alike flock to this "God's Little Paradise" to see it's nature, beauty, beaches and culture. I have a dedicated Bohol blog at Bohol Interactive to showcase the province through the community. Last January I featured Massimo Casal, a photographer now based on Indonesia but has his fair share of Bohol, his travel article and book project. Just last week, I got another heads up that he is currently on a new project, a "Photo Book on Bohol". I get to see the amazing sights of Bohol both popular and the unexplored in his 39-page preview.

Dive Bohol

Massimo studied as an engineer. His work has given him the opportunity to travel around the world and particularly around Southeast Asia. Through his travels he has cultivated his love for photography. He also has great sets from Hanoi, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, Taiwan, Europe and the Philippines as well.  You can visit his website and portfolio at Casal Photography and you should also follow him on Twitter here.

Looking at these photos make me miss home.  Yes, dear reader, this blogger is a Boholano and a Boholano I am.  What photos you say?  Well, you can also see the 39-page preview right here after the jump.


Amazing, right?  The said "Photo Book on Bohol" is planned to be published later this year on Blurb.  I'll keep you guys posted and would probably update this post for updates.

What people see on TV, read on magazines and blogs about Bohol is just probably not even half of what Bohol's potential. I sure do hope our leaders will be handle Bohol with care.  One of the projects that I really look forward to (probably when I become filthy rich) is to take a couple of years off and just tour around the whole of Bohol.  Like literally cover Bohol and blog and vlog about my journey.  I imagine myself driving my truck with my equipment, gadgets and stuff as I visit town to town taking photos and videos.  So who's with me?

Anyway, I'll leave you Massimo's travel article and book project which you can download here.  Please do visit Bohol Interactive and share us your Bohol experience.  You can also share your experiences in the comments section below.

Yes!  You should!  A whole day would be fine but that would cram your itinerary like sardines.  Three days and two nights would be good.   As for me, I want to visit Sumilon soon!

It's a shame that I haven't been to Bohol yet. It's so near my place (Cebu). I must visit it soon. My friends went there for just a day trip, I think that would be fine? Or might as well spend more than a day?

Yes, yes!  I would love to see the final product of this photo book in print!

I love Camiguin!  We went there during our field trip in college! It was amazing! Are you the one running Camiguin Guide?

Hi, Earl. I was supposed to visit Bohol last March. Now I regret I didn't. It lies next to another paradise, my hometown, Camiguin (www.camiguinguide.com).

'will  try to capture Bohol on my return. :)

There are some interesting images of Bohol in this photobook. Would love to see this in glossy print, for sure!
