Myself and 2 friends are planning a 5 day kayaking trip out of El Nido and we would like to do it independently without a support boat. We plan to paddle around the Bacuit Bay and then head North and go around to finish in Dipnay.
Since we will need to carry camping gear and food etc we will need proper touring kayaks with enough storage space. It is hard to get info online on the availability of such boats on the internet because most people seem to have a support boat carrying their…
I will be travelling to the Philippines in February 2017.
I am hoping to get a ferry from Cebu to Siquijor on 14th February but am unsure whether this is possible as I have read different ferry schedules/timings on different websites.
I have read on one website that it is possible to get a ferry from Cebu at 15:35 and arrive in Siquijor at 20:25 (presumably stopping at Tagbilaran and Dumaguete on the way?).
Is this possible? If not, can anyone advise what ferry I would have to get?
I'm going to see sharks in oslob. From the sharks center there are ferries to tagbilaran? It is true that there are ferries to Alona beach? how much time?
I just booked a last minute trip to the Philippines for some well needed relaxation and with the intend of diving as well.
I will already be leaving monday 3th of october and thus far I have booked a flight to Manilla, arriving around 3.30AM with a futher flight to Cebu arriving around 10.30 AM.
My initial idea was to pass by Malapascua (diving with sharks) and El Nido/Coron (wreckdiving and the island just looks amazing). At the moment I am doubting if it wouldn't be too much of a…
I will probably be going to the Philippines for the first 4 weeks of December 2016 and would appreciate some pointers as to where to go. I am mainly interested in trekking in forests/mountains/volcanoes, visiting colonial cities, admiring scenery, checking out lakes & waterfalls and swiming/snorkelling. I wouldn't want to spend more than 10 days at the beach though. I am based in Europe and will most likely be flying into Cebu and out of Manila or vice-versa. My budget will be of approximately…
Hello, I'm coming to Philippines in November and need some help to plan my journey. Actually it consists 2 parts - 1st part ( 9 days) I'll be with friends and would like to show them some essentials. 2nd part I'll stay for 8 days more by myself but this part is less important.
So lets focus on the first part of the trip. We have almost whole 9 days (if you count arrival day - 11.00 and departure day 17.00) , we'll land in Manila. I'm thinking about 2 plans
Stay in Luzon in whole trip…
Hey Guys i will be arriving in Manila on New Years eve 2016/2017 at roughly 7 or 8pm. I will be flying out to Coron the next day at 11.30am in the morning. We are staying in a hotel near the airport.

My mate and I (males in early 30's) are travelling from Oz back to Ireland and will be stopping in Philippines on the way home. We arrive to Manila late on Sunday night 27th November and fly out the following Monday afternoon December 5th. We don't think its worth spending time in Manila so we are considering just staying in airport hotel on the Sunday night and catching a flight somewhere the following morning. As we only have a week and will be coming from a hectic week in Oz we are looking…
arrive in Manila on 3rd October, thought maybe a flight to El nido for a few days, then boat to Cebu for a couple of days. Also fancied Borocay ,wanted to do Coron and Bohol, but slightly worried about getting around and that a lot of time and money is going to be taken travelling and flying. Also wanted to see the whale sharks. Any tips or advice would be very much appreciated!! Many thanks in advance.
