Hi VT, I am still planning my trip to the Philippines and appreciate the advice i have received on my travel plans. Those are now done. Now it is time for the accommodations. I will be in Bohol on June 12th and will be staying up to 1 week. I have read in some forums you can get better deals if you just show up and negotiate since it isn't the middle of the high season. I am sure you guys have some good advice for me. This is what i am looking for... Like everyone else, i am looking for the nicest place i can stay at the best price. I prefer a quieter area near or on a nice beach. I am willing to pay a bit more for a resort or something if i can get a good deal and the place is really nice (up to150/night) but am not looking to pay for those300+/night places. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Kurt

I am going to Bohol early next year, I will be travelling alone and renting a vehicle is not an option since it would be costly for me. are there public utility vehicles available that can take me to tourist spots and to Alona beach? I plan to have lunch in loboc and do a little sight seing. I am not certain of it would easy to get a ride going in and out of alona beach, panglao island. Tricycles are available but I am not sure if they are willing to take me in and out of the island. Help?!
Hi. I will be leaving for bohol on Feb, with my senior parents. I have inquired in Vest Pension HOuse. Anyone of you knows this pension house? ive read good reviews about them. The rates they give me are: Php 1380/night for a deluxe twin room, and a Php 3775 Countryside tour that includes: For the tours (P3775) we will be using a car, these will be your itinerary: blood compact site baclayon church & museum python sanctuary loboc river cruise with lunch buffet tarsiers hanging bridge butterfly sanctuary manmade forst chocolate hills souvenir shop Is this price too high? entrances and the lunch buffet is already included. Also, since we are arriving at 10am, can someone suggest a good thing to do? my parents dont like swimming. Hope you can help me. I am really eager to make my parents enjoy on this trip. Thanks much.
Hello. My friend and i are planning to go to bohol this Jan 2009. We're doing the tour on our own and we are planning to visit the sites for just 1 day for site seeing and I heard that its faster to do it if we can hire a car. Do anyone of you know where we rent a car for 1 day, with a driver included? And how much would that be? What could be the best iterinary, visit panglao first then go to the country side then overnight in Tagbilaran City or Country side to Panglao then back to Tagbilaran City for the night? I think staying in tagbilaran is much wiser as we need to go back to Cebu early morning the next day and it is much cheaper too. Please help us. We are planning to leave in 2 days so pls, if I can have your suggestions sooner that would be a big help. Thanks again.
Hey guys, I'm new in this forum! Anyway, I'd like to ask a few questions. If I fly to Cebu and board the ferry from the pier, how long would the journey take to reach Tagbilaran? Also, upon arrival how much would the fares for jeepney/pedicab cost to go to Panglao? Also, the tourist attractions such as the Tarsiers, Chocolate Hills are located in Panglao or the capital? Thank you. I'm planning my itinerary and this time I'm hoping to visit Bohol. :)
Hello everybody Me and my friend will be arriving in Tagbilaran pier from Cebu. Just want to ask want are our options for transportation to reach Alona Kew Resort in Panglao. We don't mind riding in a jeepney or even a tricycle. How much should we expect to spend to reach our resort. Thanks!

Do you know hotels that provide internet access (wifi) aside from Bohol Tropics in Tagbilaran?
Planning on traveling between February and March and wondering how crowded city actually gets (ie--availability of hotel rooms...).
