I am booked to go to Bohol on the 24th Dec. Is it safe to travel there now?
We have planned to be in Panglao in 2 weeks time with our infant son. Is it still safe to go in terms of infrastructure, electricity, water, etc? Or best to change our plans?
Hi Norm, my wife and I are booked to holiday on south of Bohol Island commencing 24/11/13.
We are unable to contact our hotel to see if all is fine or if we should cancel the trip.
The Australian Government, travel agents and Airline are all unable to provide any information.
I appreciate any update you could provide me on the situation in Bohol.

Hi. Does anyone know how Panglao is post-earthquake? Any access issues?
Hi. My heart is all out for Bohol's situation now. I have a booked flight to Bohol this coming October 24th. Is it safe to still push thru with the trip? I was supposed to book the accomodation the day the earthquake happened and now I am quite hesitant to call them up. Im afraid that I would come across as rude.

hi to all vt members we have a scheduled trip in dumaguete this summer and we want to do sidetrip in bohol and cebu. Im just wandering which route is more practical with regards to transportation cost. I heard that dumaguete-bohol trip is too expensive for a bagpacker like us if you guys could provide me the best route in this trip we will really appreciate and if you could also provide us the name of the port or just the location of the port and also if you could provide us the transportation cost each trip. thank you in advance :)
We'll have a getaway in Bohol this 25-27 January, kindly advise a decent hotel/resort for a couple.
Please advise where we can rent jet ski motors.
Hello VT Forum. I was hoping one of you could provide some advice on getting from Manila to Bohol for a trip during the first 2 weeks of June. After doing my research it seems that the way to go is to fly since the ferries take so long. I am only able to stay in the Philippines for 2 weeks and time is important to me. I have never been to Manila and plan on spending 2 days there and then going on to some islands as i prefer to be outside of the city. My 2 main questions are:
1. Is 2 days enough to see the main things in Manila as well as do a little shopping?
2. Since i don't know how long i will be in Manila yet, is it ok to wait until i get there to book my flights from Manila to our first destination Bohol? I don't want tickets to be sold out but am hoping that isn't the case since i won't be in the main tourist season.
Thanks all for any tips or advice.

Hi Boholians, hope you're doing fine,
I'm arriving to Phil next month and considering a 5-day visit to Bohol..
what hotels do you recommend from the ones in the list? I'm not going fancy as long as it's decent with good location.
Also, should you I split my stay to make beach & city? or I can move around easily..?
I could use some expert advice..
good day. i've been searching the net for a week now trying to fish out some tips for my family trip to bohol. im planning to treat my parents, and myself na rin, as well as my pamangkin. so there will be four of us. plano ko magrent-a-car na lang sana kasi it will also be my first time in bohol and i dont know how to get into different places utilizing the public transportation. naisip ko din kasi na it will be more convenient to rent a car with a guide kasi apat din naman kami. tapos bata pa ang isa. tama ba naisip ko? and i also want to ask for suggestions tungkol sa mga affordable resorts in panglao to spend just one night..
