    • Hiring van or car in Coron town.

      Coron Mar 30, 2015 at 1:19 PM

      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 ?

      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?

    • 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. :)

      Hi. I will be going to Davao City with my family and I'm looking for a vacation house. I found these two houses: flipkey.com/davao-vacation-r... and flipkey.com/davao-vacation-r.... House number 1 is very nice. It is in General Malvar Street near downtown but a little bit too expensive for my budget. House number 2 is in Nova Tierra and more in line on what I plan to spend.
      Is Nova Tierra a good area?? It seems to be close to both the beaches on Samal Island and the new malls and quite a peaceful place to stay, however it is a bit far from downtown.

      Family Accommodation on White Beach

      by jwnchu66 Online Now Aug 30, 2012 at 7:54 PM

      Hi VT'ers,
      Been a while since my last post. Another where-to-stay question I'm afraid.

      Done my research and have been to PG before. But the situation is a bit different this time. The missus and I are returning to PH in November (16-19th) and would like to treat her family to PG outing.

      We are a party of 9 in total (couple plus five adults and 1 child under 5yrs).

      I was thinking one room for missus and I, and another for the clan.

      The only place on White Beach that comes close on price and location is the DreamWave Hotel. But I have heard of a few bad reviews about bedbugs and other such tales.

      We have stayed at Mandelluke Suites next door, but they don't have a room for 5 adults.

      Do you have any experience or suggestions for places?

      Reasonable standards for rooms and AC. Not budget but also not expensive either as I'll be paying for all.

      We also intend to not pre-book but to get to White Beach and then decide. Is this going to be risky since we are going during or start of peak period?

      planning on vacationing for a few days in pg. saw whitesand beach in youtube and didn't find it appealing. looking for nice beach, clean, with restaurants that serve delicious but affordable food; like most, looking for affordable nice accomodation for 5 adults, 2 teens and 1 kid. we can stay in 1 big studio so long as there's ample number of beds. would like a native style cottage. and also would accomodate pets. what beach resort has this description? and of course, how much will we be spending? also anxious about transpo. will the ferries and banca and roro take in pets? how much will we spend if we brought our vehicle. we were told we can leave it in calapan, after roro, but we can take it all the way to the resort, can't we?

      oh, and yes, one more very important question needing an answer. are the waves big during this time of the year? dec. 2011? it rains almost everyday in manila and the adults are worried about traveling by sea and concerned that we might not be able to enjoy swimming if the waves are big or if it is "typhoony"

      ANY DIVERS AROUND!?!?!?

      by kiddoc58 Online Now Aug 3, 2010 at 12:20 AM

      Hi, I'm considering a ten day trip to PI in mid September for diving. I only have OW cert(PADI), and not many dives since being certified two years ago. I was originally thinking of the Visayas, but I really would rather not use my travel time just to get to a more remote locale, (such as Cebu, Bohol or Sipalay, maybe next time), so now I'm thinking of PG which is relatively close to Manila and the airport.

      What about PG and the surrounding area? Does anyone have an opinion about diving in the area? I hear that Sabang is good with other spots also nearby.

      Any recommendations for diving site, operator/centers, rooms, eats and nightlife would be greatly asppreciated. I'm looking for someplace not too busy. I'm traveling alone and I don't need a 5* resort, clean and cheap would do just fine.

      Hey,
      we are going to stay at Tamaraw Beach Resort in Aninuan for a few days in late June. We'll arrive in Manila and the question is how to get to the resort?
      I guess we'll just take a bus from Manila to Batangas and then hop on one of the ferries to Puerto Galera. Does anyone know if we'll have to take another boat from there to Tamaraw Beach? I tried to get in contact with the people from the resort but I didn't get any reply.

      And one question about the weather: I know it's gonna be rainy season and it could be sunny or pouring down the whole day or just anything in between...but what can you "usually" expect? I wouldn't mind a rain shower every day as long as it's not too bad...
