Tarsier Botanika, Panglao Island

2.8
#6 of 8 in Parks in Panglao Island
Meet the tarsier, one of the world’s most timid, large-eyed creatures, at Tarsier Botanika. This botanical garden boasts over 2,000 species of tropical plants, as well as seaside walkways and small villas built in the style of traditional pyramidal Ifugao houses. However, the tarsiers stand out as the main attraction. While you can happily observe the timid creatures, you should keep your voice down and try not to alarm them, as they scare easily. A French couple designed the villas and the gardens and decorated them with stone carvings and metal sculptures of tarsiers, ants, and crabs, among other animals. The resort also features an equestrian center where you can learn basic dressage techniques.

    The visit and the conservation of these primates is good, but tourists do not have careful with noise, raise their voices, the flashes of cameras, etc. In addition business arising from animals is also quite noticeable.

    Alona beach is located in was three tareusi paprika stores send the shuttle to take it if you go 5-7 minute landscaped park-like gardens or small restaurant. There are tables outside to escape the heat and mosquitoes, but the glass-walled indoor watching the sunset. The atmosphere is nice, but the price of expensive meals, good taste is against him fairly. Pizza is a little less salty the salty side will advance unto just ask. The first ride aboard the shuttle when you go back to where you've been.
