      Diving in Anilao Batangas.

      Anilao Mar 25, 2015 at 10:34 PM

      I'm planning to go to Anilao Batangas next month and my plan is to experience diving. However, I'm quite confused with the diving rules. Can I experience diving to those nice diving spot in Anilao even if I'm not a certified diver or do I need to take diving course/certificate first before I'll be allowed to dive? I have no plan to make diving a career in my life, I just want to experience it. I only want it as a one in a lifetime experience.

    • 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.

      We are anticipating to arrive in Sagada by 1pm Oct. 2 at the latest coming from Batad. We would like to stay in Sagada for 2N. After Sagada, we would like to continue onwards to VIGAN - LAOAG. I've been researching online...this seems to be the hardest part Sagada - Vigan. Could anyone guide us. I've read somewhere that we could Cervantes route.. I think this would be our faster option. I know we can go to Baguio, but we would really like to AVOID Baguio.

      Could anyone tell us where we could take the bus/jeep/trike leaving Sagada that will take us to Cervantes-Tagudin-Vigan? And what time must we catch the bus/jeep/trike for I know there are very few travelling that direction. Would hate to miss it.

      Any suggestion is helpful.

      Manila-Laoag-Pagudpud-Laoag-Vigan-Manila

      Vigan May 28, 2012 at 5:39 PM

      Hey,

      I'm from Indonesia and will be going solo to Ilocos Region in this June. So, my plan will be taking the Florida's sleeper bus to Laoag and arrive at the next morning. Then, I will be staying for 1 night in Laoag. Little bit confused with the schedule there, whether moving around in Laoag first then heading to Pagudpud and going back at night to Laoag, or vice versa (departing to Pagudpud at morning then going back to Laoag around 3 pm). The next morning, I'll be heading to Vigan and having a daily tour. I'm planning to go back to Manila at night by bus, therefore I can still experience the night life of Vigan.

      My questions:
      - Does the itinerary seem possible for you?
      - Is there any bus from Vigan to Manila that leaving around 10 pm? Can I take the sleeper bus from Vigan to Manila?
      - Do you have any recommendation for a cheap (but good) tour in those 3 cities?
      - How can I reach the Florida's terminal in Manila?

      Many thanks for your help. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!

      Trip to Pagudpud

      Province of Ilocos Sur Apr 12, 2012 at 5:23 PM

      Hello Guys!
      I've read some of the blogs regarding trips to Pagudpud. This will be a big help for us in going there as we are planning to make the trip this April. I have few questions in mind though:
      What are the reccommended hotels to stay in Vigan, Laoag and Pagudpud?
      What is the approximate travel time from Pagudpud to Manila?
      Thanks a lot!

      Hello Guys..

      I already read some inputs here in the forum but I have some other inquiries to those people who had been in the said places. My gf and I will be planning to visit first Vigan-go to Laoag then Pagudpud this June. Hope you can share your experience.

      Vigan Inquiries

      1. Travel time from Manila to Vigan?
      2. Where in Vigan will be the drop-off so that Driver/Kunduktor will know? Is it Calle Crisologo?
      3. Estimated hours to tour Vigan
      4. Estimated hours travel going to laoag?

      Laoag Inquiries
      1. Where we can ride a transpo going to Laoag?
      2. Are these places can accomodate in 3 hours tour? Or do you think these are enought to explore Laoag?
      sinking bell tower
      saint william cathedral
      museo iloko
      malacanang of the north
      paoay church
      marcos museum
      marcos photo gallery
      Saramsam Restaurant
      Sta. Monica Church
      3. Since we are targeting minimal time in this places, can we catch a transpo moving to Pagudpud? This will be our last stop.
      4. Estimated travel hour from Laoag to Pagudpud

      Pagudpud Inquiries
      1. As I read some blogs here, which one should explore first, the North Bound or the South Bound where Bangui WindMills is there?
      2. Estimated time exploring the North Bound? and South Bound?
      3. As I read on other part of this forum, theres a transportation from Pagudpud to Manila. Some says you have to go to Laoag first. Or do we need to go back again to Vigan? Just want to verify
      4. Estimated travel hour going back to Manila IF theres a transpo available in Pagudpud

      Other Inquiries
      1. 4 days and 3 nights is a good one or a short one?
      2. 5k budget per head, swak ba? or kapos?


      Thanks in advance guys!
