MUNICIPALITY OF DAUIS
Dauis is one of the two towns on the island of Panglao, Bohol.
There are 2 existing bridges in Dauis; the Songculan Riverside Bridge, which is made of timber and the Dauis Bridge also known for “Causeway” made of reinforced concrete.This bridge connects Tagbilaran City to Dauis town which will eventually be an access to the New Bohol Airport.
The bridge is about 10 to 15 minute ride by tricycle from the downtown of Tagbilaran City to Mansasa.
I’ve been to many different places in the region and chasing sunset is always my favorite part of the itinerary. Lucky we are because we stayed in a place that’s just few walks away from the causeway. When we got to the bridge, I was so amazed with the clean waters that continously running under it. I feel so relaxed while sitting on the concrete benches built along the bridge. It is really a perfect place to unwind. During daytime, you will see beautiful sceneries of Tagbilaran and Dauis and during night time, you will see many people gathered on different spots. Truly, it is a perfect to meet your friends to get some relaxation and discussions.
Below are the snapshots that was taken around Dauis.
There are several old churches that can be found in Bohol like the Loon Church, Baclayon Church, Maribojoc Church and Loboc Church that can be found nearby the Loboc River.
