Chocolate Hills is a tourist spot in Bohol, Philippines. There are two viewing resorts offering two unique panoramic views of the hills. This study aims to investigate the landscape preference of tourists in its present condition and for future development. A survey was conducted on tourists in two viewing decks to identify the most interesting part in the existing panoramic view and evaluate the attractiveness and importance of the landscape elements in the present land use, and to determine the landscape expectation of tourists for reference in future developments. The informants were provided with a camera, a questionnaire and landscape illustrations as research tools during the survey. An area in the panoramic view was identified by tourists as the most interesting part of the panoramic view. The study suggests that special attention should be given to the identified part in the management of the landscape. Tourists gave equal importance to hills (grasslands), forests, and farmlands, but expressed preference for viewing hills that are uncovered with trees. The reason of this preference, as a result of Correspondence Analysis, is to give emphasis on the physical characteristics of the features. This is supported by another part of the survey when tourists were asked to choose their preferred landscape from the different possible landscape illustrations.
