Hello To Everybody,
I'm Franz and I'm here to ask a couple of questions to all the Philippines experts. Next Autumn I'll go to the Philippines and the "draft" of my trip would involve Manila-Banaue-Palawan. So, my questions are the following:
1. I would visit the mount Pinatubo, is it better to make Manila-San Fernando (stay overnight-visit to Pinatubo-departure in the evening)-Banaue, or making a "day tour" from Manila to visit the Pinatubo and then a straight ride from Manila to Banaue?
2. As far as you know, which is the closest airport to fly from Banaue (and heading to Palawan)?
3. Which is your favorite Flight Company?
I wish you all a great time to travel!
I'm going to Palawan from July 4-8 and arriving via Puerto Princesa. Any tips on places to see? I'd love to see beautiful beaches and the underground river as well.
I have three weeks in the Philippines in August, looking to spend about 10 days in Palawan.
The general idea to is fly in and out of Puerto Princesca from Manila.
Is there a better choice of airline to fly with in terms of reliability of departures? Or should I make sure I have an extra day spare in Manila before my international flight in case of delays?
Is there a better direction to do this in terms of transport options? Considering the roads and potential rain at times, i wanted to be closer to the airport to fly out than up at El Nido and come all the way back and have an unexpected delay.
Also how easy is it to boat from El Nido to Port Barton? Considering this is not apparently the high season will there be others likely to want to mkae the same trip to ... more »

Which destinations are a possibility to fly from and to from Cebu?
http://immigration.gov.ph/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2007&Itemid=78 Foreigners intending to stay longer in the country may now avail of a six-month, long-stay tourist visa that will be launched next week by the Bureau of Immigration (BI).
BI Commissioner Ricardo A. David, Jr. also announced the introduction of a new visa sticker that will replace the wet stamp used by the Bureau in implementing extensions of stay in the passports of foreign tourists.
With all the rain in Cebu...was wondering if there's a budget room/dorm reasonably near the airport? And BTW, does Cebu Pacific have a local office there, or would the airport be the only place to talk with someone in person? Thanks.
Family of 4 desires three bags under 40k. PAL says we are entitled to 4 bags x 10k. No worries for us?
I'm eyeing the possibility of visiting Cebu. I'm aware that there are fast ferries from Cebu to Bohol daily and I was wondering:
Is it possible to make a day trip to Bohol from Cebu and perhaps visit the Tarsier sanctuary, Chocolate Hills and at least one of its cathedrals using public transport? Are there taxis and buses that I can take when I arrive at the pier?
Hoping someone can give me some suggestions here - I'm hoping to do a dive safari from El Nido to Coron, or vice versa, for around 3 or 4 nights but since I'll be travelling alone I'm not sure if any of the operators around take single passengers of if I have to arrange a group. Can anyone recommend a dive group that could help me with this?
I've been to El Nido and Coron before (but didn't dive) so if there are other options (maybe Apo) which would suit a single traveller better I can be persuaded to change plans!
I'm looking at going over the Christmas period.
Trailfinders is a long established UK travel company.
I spotted a flight on skyscanner.com and was going to book it but the site was not having it. So I called up Trailfinders, who have one of the more competent call centres I know about, to see if they could book it.
initially they said they could and charged about £15 more than the website did which I could have lived with. But then about 10 minutes later they called me back and said they could not sell it me. The girl said, they do not sell Philippines Airlines flights and that usually there were two reasons why this might be so.
1) they think the airline might be about to go bust.
2) 'safety issues'.
so is it, 1 or 2, or both?
I'm going to be flying into the Manila Airport (Terminal 3) soon and need to get to Tagaytay. Are there buses that leave directly from the airport, or what's the best way to do it? I know that I can take a taxi there, but prefer to take (less expensive) public transport.
Also, what is there for public transport in Tagaytay? Is there any place to rent a motorbike or bicycle? I hear that the town is fairly spread out and I like being able to get around and see all the different things in and around the area, but don't want to spend a small fortune in doing so!
Thanks in advance!
