Manila is the capital of the Philippines and home to Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL), the main port of entry for international travelers coming to the Philippines. All major international airlines fly to Manila.
From Manila you can take a flight to Tagbilaran Airport (TAG) in Bohol, or you fly to Cebu Airport (CEB) and take a passenger ferry. Currently a New Bohol airport is being built in Panglao, the Panglao International Airport, which will take over operations from Tagbilaran Airport by end of 2018. The new airport will keep the same code (TAG). The New Bohol Airport will serve as the premiere gateway to the province and the paradise island, Panglao.

If you fly into Cebu, you have the affordable option of getting a ferry across to Bohol. There are two main options – Ocean Jet* (2hr travel time, approx $14) and Super Cat (2hr travel time $10).
*Ocean Jet is slightly more expensive but newer and more comfortable.
