TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol May 11, (PIA) --Expect new tourism write-ups for Bohol from a team of writers and television feature people of the country's leading networks and media organizations abroad. 

This as a team led by corporate communications manager Vivecka Singson, of Cebu Pacific Air brought in a team of nine travel and feature writers from giant television networks, major news organizations in the country including somebody from Cable News Network Philippines. 

Eager to see how Bohol has fared after a year of the devastating earthquake and how tourism has stood up after the disaster, the group also tested new products including the ones packaged by the province along with Japan International Cooperation Agency. 

The team, which visited the mystical island of Lamanoc and did the dolphin and whale watching including an island hop at the famed Pamilacan came out of Bohol with positive reviews.
Billeted at the Bellevue Hotel, the group also did a countryside Bohol tour with topnotch tour guide and professor Joseph Eric Canete.

No less than the Lamanoc Island caretaker and inhouse tour guide Fortunato Simbajon who took over the group in the treks and adventures in the mystical island. 

Lamanoc, an islet off Barangay Badiang in Anda has been believed to be a pre-hispanic ritual site of the Visayan healers and medicine men, it is also believed to be an island home of the spirits. 

Also a primary burial ground for early Boholanos, Lamanoc features old graveyards with clay potteries, dug out primary, secondary and tertiary burial coffins, hematite paintings, numerous rock shelters, ritual caves and ritual remnants. 

On the other hand, Pamilacan dolphin experience was a hit for the group, which saw over a thousand spinner and bottle nosed dolphins bow-riding and fishtailing during the early Sunday morning tour. 

The team had Angel's Wings Tours and Travels serving their tour requirements. (rac/PIA-7Bohol/PR)
