Hi all, Im travelling with myself and two friends to Cebu in late June and was wondering which area/areas of Cebu are worthwhile visiting. We will fly in around mid day and i was thinking we will have either 3 or 4 nights on the island before moving on to Boracay. I have looked into Moalboal a little and this seems interesting for the canyoning, waterfall trips. I think these are the type of activities we would enjoy most and maybe a night out in Cebu City? Do you suggest we stay 3 nights and spend more time in Boracay, would that be more worthwhile?
Thanks in advance!
Understand that in Cebu, the best place to see & swim with whale sharks is in Oslob.
Would like to know how much to cost to swim with whale sharks?
Can we snorkel from the shore & swim further to the sea to see the whale sharks?
Or is it a must to join one of the tour there?
If so, any recommendation for the tour?
Thanks in advance for replying.
I'm looking for little bit of advice. I will be landing in Cebu with 10 days in area of holiday time. I would like to visit the surrounding islands. Obviously I realize keeping it to Cebu, Bohol and maybe one more would probably be best.
My only issue is that I don't know how to go about it in terms of time in each place and where I should spend most of my time and what I should ditch completely
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
From Puerto Princesa, me and my boyfriend are flying to Cebu spending 3 days there. I know that most places were badly hit by typhoon Yolanda. Do you have any itinerary in mind? I would like my boyfriend to see whale sharks and Oslob but could not find any hotel or resort near the are. Help please!
Happy new year!
I am researching the possibility of travelling to the Philipines in January 2013. I really need to spend some time to escape the Canadian winter and unwind in the sun. I am interested in all water sports including learning how to sail.
I have never been to the Philipines so I need some help in choosing which area to go to. Im not interested in night clubs etc, just looking for a quiet, peaceful small town feel.
Any help would be appreciated
Please forward me if you have a reliable and reasonable contact from the above. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids , The last time I went with my hubby, we went out to the sea in one of those "crab-like" boat, the locals barbecue fish, prawns, chicken and caught fresh sea urchins for us to savour on board. I lost the contact when my phone went berserk..

We will be staying 4 days at Plantation Bay with our 3 year old and 10 month old.
I've read the food there isn't great and very expensive (not what I want for my little PICKY EATER!)
Are there any local restaurants close by? What would the taxi fare be?
If we wanted to do a little shopping and browsing is this possible? Are there markets to wander around in? How long of a drive away?
I would love any other tips you have to make our trip more fun!

This will be our first time visiting phillipines and i was wondering if we should visit cebu or davao ? What is the major differences between the two ? We love beaches but would also like to do some sightseeing, if possible.
From either cebu or davao, what other places would be recommended ? We are looking at maybe a 10 - 14 days trip.
I like big cities and I also like beaches. I guess neither are wanting for nightlife, but what would be better during the day?
any one know about seawalker and where to book and how much,
i and my family will be stay at plantation bay resort on 25 dec 08.
thank you very much.
