Tarsier Botanika, Panglao Island

3.8
#6 of 14 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.
