DRIVING TO PILAR? If you are a visitor to Bohol, Philippines and you plan to drive the 76 klm's to Pilar from Tagbilaran (capital city of Bohol) then you might want to do this . . . . . . drive a FOUR WHEEL DRIVE (4xWD) vehicle. We have made the road trip several times this year and with a number of long sections of the road under going repairs and reconstructions -- along with some large pot-holes NOT currently under repair -- you and your family/friends will enjoy the drive in better confidence and comfort with the four wheels of your vehicle under motorized power instead of the normal two. The other idea is to hire one of the many vehicles available in Tag. City (most deals include a driver for the day) and enjoy the many views along the way. We allow at least 2 hours of safe driving time from Tag. City to Pilar if roads are dry ... longer if wet. Happy motoring to Pilar! Michael and Emily March, 2013
