Unless you come from a country with no forests at all, I don't really get the point of this place. The road to Chocolate Hills passes through anyway. The air is very cool and fresh. Otherwise it is a bunch of mahogany trees that have...More

Unless you see the sign that simply says man made forest, you would have little idea that this stretch of woods is in any way special. Unless you take the time to research this area, you will learn nothing more than those three words. No...More

Interesting man-made forest. Lush. It was nice to stop and admire for awhile. Cooling amidst the hot weather! Be careful when you drive through as many stop to take photographs in the middle of the road.
