Dear Philippine travelers, I need to buy a roundtrip ticket from Manila to Ho Chi Minh City and back. When I look up flights going to Viet Nam on Kayak.com from Manila I see a low cost flight advertised by Tiger Air. However, though they quote the approximate price in US dollars (I am from the US) they make a disclaimer that the fare is charged to my credit card in Singapore dollars from which they approximate the equivalent charge in US Dollars in their offering. My concern is whether I will…
I'll be heading to the Philippines in October and looking to do 3 days and 2 nights in the rice terraces. Everything I read online is a bit conflicting so I just would love peoples advice on an itinerary for this. Would you recommend using Banaue as a homebase and traveling to Batad for a day trip and Sagada for a day trip and use the final day before the overnight bus back to Manila to explore somewhere else nearby? I'm open to recommendations but one thing I can't be flexible on…

I’m starting to plan for my first trip to the Philippines this December. I will have four full days in Manila and will be flying in from Seoul. In March of this year I visited Burma and despite everyone’s advice, I spent the entire time in Yangon (minus a few short excursions outside). It was my first time to spend an entire vacation in one area, rather than trying to fit in as many city/major attractions as possible. I ended up thoroughly enjoying my time in Yangon, and I will visit Burma again…
My wife and I are going to philippines as a part of a backpack trip to southeast asia. The ticket is bought and unprepared as we were when we booked the ticket we didnt read up on the situation in the philippines. As i read the danish foreign Ministry as well as the UK they both clearly state that the southern philippines is a risky place to go with high risk of kidnapping, terrorism, demonstration etc.
They also state that western people is a bit of a target themselves and you should…
Hi, we're two single girls travelling to the Philippines and looking for a bit of a mixture between some fun night life (nothing too crazy, just sunset beers in fun places type of thing), lovely beaches, and adventuring and exploring. Any help would be much appreciated!
Do you think 4 days is enough on Boracay? And do you have any tips for the types of things we should do there and the area we should stay in, or any particular hostels?
Also, we're thinking of heading to Palawan for about 9…
So I've got a 2 week trip booked with 3 other buddies mid October. Only have 2 weeks (which I'm sure is not enough). Have any suggestions as to how our itinerary should look? We'd like to scuba dive, chill and party. Don't want to feel too rushed and our budget is pretty loose. Where should we go? What should we do? How easy is it to get from island to island? Do we need to book flights in advance or can we wing it? Thanks.
I am planning to travel to boracay, Philippines. I badly need a female buddy who will accompany me durng my trip. Manila to any of those 3 destintions (not yet sure. maybe if I find a buddy here I would also consider her choice)
btw, i am 30 year old and friendly :D
