Just when you thought Bohol’s famous Chocolate Hills couldn’t get any better, the Chocolate Hills Adventure Park can give you that adrenaline rush you’ve been waiting for this summer season. A must try among tourists is its bicycle zipline that’s 150 feet up in the air, placed between two hills over half a kilometer apart from each other.

Just around 5 kilometers away from downtown Romblon is this beautiful beach and sandbar that doesn’t need even a speck of post-processing because of the complementing shades of blue that the Bonbon Beach sky and waters offer. What’s good about this place is that it doesn’t have any commercialized amenities in the area yet, making it a beautiful backdrop for your lone islander-inspired shots. Remember, though, to head to the sandbar during low tide season to fully enjoy the shoreline.

With each picturesque destination, must also come a phone that will allow you to capture the beauty in each place without losing the magic in each moment. What better companion to take with you on your next summer adventure than the Galaxy A8 and A8+?
