Offbeat Traveler: Chocolate Hills in Bohol, Philippines

Unlike most destinations, the Chocolate Hills are best viewed when they're dried and brown. This is when the hills, located in Bohol Province, Philippines, start to earn their name. During the dry season, the normally green grass covering the cone-shaped mounds turns brown, creating fields of chocolate-colored hills. The hills are formed from coral deposit uplifts sculpted by erosion over time. They are one of Bohol's most popular tourists attractions and a National Geological Monument of the Philippines. --Jason La, Los Angeles Times
