    • Hiring van or car in Coron town.

      Coron 12 hours ago

      I am travelling from El Nido to Coron by outrigger boat. When I arrive in Coron, I have to get from the pier to my hotel, Al Faro Hotel, located in D'Pearl Bay area, which is about 50 minute drive from Coron town. Since I am not arriving in Coron at an exact time, I can't make arrangements for the hotel van to pick me up. Does anyone know if there are cars or vans for hire in the pier area that I can hire on the spot and will take me to that area ?

    • Additional information: Manila Nightlife

      Boracay Island Mar 23, 2015 at 12:04 AM

      So to get to Boracay, I will have to spend a night or two in Manila. Sounds exciting. I am, however, very uninformed about the area.

      Please answer the following questions, if possible and knowledgeable:

      1. I will be flying from Hawaii to Manila. Long-ish flight. Is there a hotel by the airport that is close to the nightlife?
      2. I would like to avoid "girly bars" / prostitutes / ______ / pay for ______. Is this possible?
      3. Only staying 1 - 3 nights. Not looking for wholesome entertainment, but perhaps, a good bar with cheap beer and nice people to talk to.
      4. Any "main drag" like Bangkok's Sukhumvit? If so, what is the name and proximity to the airport?
      5. Any good, budget hotels in this area? Maybe $30 - 60 USD per nite?

      Thank you in advance for your responses.

      Oh, yeah.

      I am a white American. I have read that the most dangerous part of landing in Manila is negotiating a taxi cab to my hotel. I am well-traveled, but what is the likelihood of robbery if arriving late at night. Mind you, I will get a legitimate taxi with no one in the back seat.

      Any and all answers are appreciated. Thank you. :)

    • Can anybody please assist in this matter?

      Boracay Island Mar 18, 2015 at 7:21 PM

      Hello,

      I am a white, 30-something American who is interested in spending the summer months of June - August in Boracay. I am educated, professional, and well-traveled and have spent time in Bangkok, Thailand, Bali, Indonesia, and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

      I have a few questions to ask regarding travels to and stays in Boracay.

      1. How old are the typical visitors to Boracay who enjoy the nightlife / party scene? Are they in there 20s, or are there people in their 30s, 40s, and 50s there, too? Are there many westerners there?

      Bangkok and Bali both had visitors from their teens to their 70s, so that was cool. Is Boracay the same?

      2. Do the women express interest in westerners? If so, what is their motivation?

      I enjoyed the attention of members of the opposite sex during my travels throughout Thailand and Indonesia, but they were not exactly after my good looks. In Mexico, it was close to impossible to get the attention of women because I felt that they saw me as a white tourist with limited Spanish speaking skills.

      3. Is the nightlife scene lively 7 nights a week? Or is it only on the weekends? Are some nights better than others?

      4. Is it okay to enjoy alcoholic beverages in the open, or should I keep them concealed? Mind you, I am not going to be stumbling drunk down the beach with a keg, but rather discreet and enjoying a cold beer under the shade of a tree.

      5. Is it possible to rent an apartment there? Or is my only option to check in to a hotel? If apartments are available, what is the weekly / monthly rate in pesos?

      6. Will I get bored if I stay over sixty days?

      7. What is the nightlife like during late May to early August?

      I have read that this is the low-season, but a huge part of the reason why I am interested in visiting Boracay is for its nightlife. The only time during the year that I can visit is from late May till early August.

      I DO NOT MIND CROWDS. I like a bustling nightlife. Though it is no doubt tuned down during the low-season, I need assistance in answering these questions:

      a. Can I still expect a bustling nightlife?
      b. Will all the bars and clubs be open?
      c. Will there be people on the streets enjoying themselves?
      d. Will there be other westerners there?
      e. Will the bars and clubs stay open late into the night?
      f. Will it be possible to go to the bars and clubs 7 nights a week?

      I know this is a lot to ask and some of it even redundant, but I have been involved on numerous forums about foreign destinations in the past and have always enjoyed some of the insight and information that members with intimate knowledge of those locations have provided in the past, and I hope to find some useful information here on this forum.

      Again, I would appreciate any and all helpful responses. I hope to hear from you soon.

      Thank you.

    • Safe evening beach areas or resorts very near to Dumaguete City centre

      Dumaguete City Aug 18, 2014 at 6:32 PM

      Where can I find beach resorts very near to Dumaguete City centre which would be open (if privately owned) and safe to spend the evenings? My plan is to move to Dumaguete to live and spend the day time in air-conditioned locations (i.e. my dwelling, malls, cinemas) and then go out in the evenings when it is cooler (from maybe 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.); it would be good to spend some of those times on a beach but are private ones closed then? And are there any good ones (private or public) very close to the City Centre (i.e. up to about 15 minutes away)? And, finally, does my plan to spend the day indoors and the evenings outside make sense?

      Dumaguete City May 4, 2011 at 9:35 PM

      Hello everyone!
      We are scheduled to go here next month but I am now confused on what itinerary should I do in order to enjoy the place. I am also planning to visit Siquijor but I am not sure if a day trip is sufficient or if it warrants an overnight stay.

      I've read somewhere that it is pricey to go Dolphin watching in Bais since no matter if you're on your own or in a group, you still need to hire the whole boat for Php2500-3000 for a 10pax capacity. Is this true? There's only 2 of us so this will be very pricey indeed. Can you recommend any travel agency that arranges day trips to Bais which offers cheaper package rates per person?

      Do I need an overnight stay in Apo Island in order to enjoy the place? Or a day tour will do?

      Thanks in advance. :)
