      Sabang Jan 17, 2015 at 6:32 AM

      There is lots of restaurant info for Puerto Princesa but not much for Sabang, near underground River. We will be at Daluyon for 2 nights. Thanks to member for mentioning the burger place on the beach!  Any other recommendations for safe/cheap eats?  We don't mind seafood, but not seafood lovers either.  Salamat!

    • where to stay

      Palawan 18 hours ago

      Hello-
      There are four of us going to Palawan in late April. We will be there for 5 nights and are planning on flying into El Nido and spending all of our time in that area. What are islands and beaches that can't be missed in the Bacuit Archipelago? I think we would like to spend 2 days relaxing on the beaches, and three days exploring a few islands.

      Other ideas were to fly into Puerto Princessa and spend the night in Sabang to see the underground river and then head up to El Nido, but I know that one day would be all driving.

      Thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.
      Thanks!

      First time on Cebu island, looking for best region to stay at

      Cebu City Jan 7, 2015 at 8:37 AM

      Hi everyone!

      Having spent the last two winters in Phuket/Thailand my wife and I are looking for something more "original" this time and with "beautiful beaches" being the key word we chose the Plilippines.
      Planning on travelling to Cebu island for anywhere between 2-5 months in late 2015 (depending on the weather and visa requirements). We've got a winter to spend and we love sandy beaches and clear waters. Where would you guys suggest staying for this period of time? We'd like to have the opportunity of nearby island hopping, beautiful beaches within short distance etc.
      What is an advisable way to find a decent apartment for long term rent over there?

      Of course we'll visit places like El Nido, Boracay etc from Cebu but we'd like to have a base somewhere close to "civilisation" with a little shopping nearby, not such a "dead" place in the evenings... am I asking for too much? heheheh...

      Thank in advance for the help!!

      Balikbayan, 31 year old male returning to the Philippines for a vacation am considering visiting Zamboanga around the last week of September. Need a tour guide for maybe 2-3 days to show me around the city and maybe places around it to tell me about the sites, so if you have a Tourism degree/experience (or are a tourism student) that's a definite plus but not a requirement.

      Meals and transportation costs while we are together will be covered by me. Please send picture, a brief introduction and your proposed daily rate in pesos to be considered -- please take note that it will probably take more than 8 hours of your day so send an all inclusive rate and tell me if it's negotiable or not. My only requirement is that you speak English well enough and that you are knowledgeable of the sites that you plan to show me, hence the requirement for the introduction.

      This is open to men and women of any age. If you or someone you know would be interested, feel free to get in touch with me at co1791@yahoo.com

Now im not sure and I am thinking I should fly her to Manila instead, but I really would rather see her there in her city (Zamboanga city). Can anyone give e thoughts on this? Also what hotels near the sea would be nice....doesnt have to be 5 star at all. Lastly If I decide to go ther what is the best way to make sure safe travel from the airport to the hotel? I travel to Asia twice a year and this will be my second visit ever to the Philippines which I admit is a little scary with all the guns I see. The people i have met have all been very nice. Please advise me.
