A popular tourist attraction not just in Bohol but in the whole Philippines, Chocolate Hills are seemingly endless conical hills covering an area of more than 50 square kilometers.  There are about 1,268 to 1,776 hills covered in green grass during wet season but turn chocolate brown during dry season, hence the name.  

While these hills can be seen anywhere within the area, there are viewing decks that provide scenic views of these wonders.  There are several Chocolate Hills viewing areas in Bohol but for this post, we refer to the Chocolate Hills Complex in Carmen, Bohol.
