      from Manila to Donsol

      Philippines Nov 14, 2016 at 11:34 PM

      hi guys,

      we are planning to hire a car and take a journey from Manila down to Donsol. Since we dont want to make it at one go, i am thinking of stopping by at various points of interests and staying 2 nights (in total) near them along the way. I plan to have one night at Taal volcano with the obvious trip to the crater and the other night somewhere half-way before reaching Donsol. I dont wish to stretch it, so that it means maximum around a 6-hour ride at a time.

      Where would you make the other overnight stopover (with solid lodging options)? Im open to make overall 3 stopovers if it will make a sense.

      As for the points of interests on the way, I was considering checking the Kamay ni Hesus Healing Church and passing through the hairpin road of Quezon National Forest. Anything else...maybe more intriguing?

      thank you a lot for any input,

      jirikoo

    • Looking to join group or hire tour for El Nido to Coron Tour

      El Nido Nov 13, 2016 at 8:36 PM

      My wife and I are traveling to El Nido on Nov 25 and are hoping to go on an island hopping tour sometime between Nov 26 and Dec 1. We're looking to put together a group to hire a private boat for a 3 - 5 day tour of the islands from El Nido to Coron.

      Booking a group can reduce the price significantly! We'll be able to create our own tour but here is a sample of what we could see/do:

    • Surfing in January

      Siargao Island Nov 16, 2016 at 11:13 AM

      Hi,

      I'm going to the Philippines in January and I was wondering about surf conditions. I know it's going to rain and it should be quite windy too, but would it be possible to get good conditions in the morning for example, followed by crappy ones in the afternoon? Also, would it be better to go towards the beginning or the end of the month?

      Thanks!

      Is it dumb to visit both coron and elnido or should we visit one or the other and visit somewhere else? As it stands we have two nights in PP then four nights in El Nido then three nights in coron then one night in Oslob to swim with whale sharks and then two nights in Cebu where we will visit Bohol.

      Where to spend 2 week

      Philippines Nov 28, 2016 at 3:31 AM

      my wife and I are planning a 2 week visit in April and are looking to have a relaxed break only visiting 2 or 3 places, one of which will be Manila as we flying in/out of there.(we will come back again so no need to rush and try to see everything).
      I have looked at a range of sites which present so many beautiful destinations that I am finding difficulty in identifying what would work best for us.In addition when I read a number of posts they present some places as being not quite as the brochures show (eg some of the posts below relating to Palawaan.
      We are interested in being on picturesque beaches, seeing some cultural and historic sights and possibly doing some snorkelling/diving.
      I would appreciate any thoughts from those who have visited or live in the Phillippines

      Is Palawan really a paradise island?

      Palawan Nov 14, 2016 at 2:51 PM

      Hello!

      I'm planning to go to Philippines in winter and Palawan island sounds like a major spot in the archipelago and I want to go there. Nevertheless I'm wondering more and more if the island by itself is a nice place to enjoy the typical paradise-white-sand-tropical scenery.

      Because when you find pictures about Palawan and more precisely about El Nido you have amazing captures of turquoise water days, black limestome, jungle, etc... But when you check on Google Maps (Google Street View, Amateur pictures, etc...) Palawan mainland beaches look a bit disappointing.

      I know I can be picky and I've very high standards when it to beaches. Is there any amazing swimming/diving spot in Palawan mailand or should I go on one of the many surrounding islands such as Cadlao, Mantiloc, Miniloc or Tapiutan Islands directly? Are there very frequent boats to go from El Nido to those places?

      Thank you in advance

      Best national parks in the Philippines

      Philippines Nov 13, 2016 at 10:10 AM

      Hello!

      I'm planning to go maybe in the Philippines in winter and I'd like to visit some national parks. Of course I already thought about the nature reserves in Palawan but apart from that I've not so much ideas about the most scenic and rich national parks and reserves.

      - I'm planning to go in Luzon, Palawan and probably on Mindoro, Bohol and Cebu. (Mindanao looks great but I've heard very preoccupying things about the social/religious situation there...)

      - I love rainforest, hiking, mountains, volcanoes, etc... Can you suggest me some some nice natural places to have this kind of environment in the islands mentionned above.

      - I saw breathtaking pictures of Apo Reef Natural Park but I can't get any information about it... How can I go there. Does it worth it? Or should I better try to stop in Coron Island from Palawan? Is there ferry between Palawan and Coron for affordable prices?

      Thank you in advance :)

      Returning to my homeland after 10 years!

      Bacolod City Jul 26, 2014 at 5:53 AM

      Hello all,

      I'm planning a trip to the Philippines for sometime in January 2015 (or possibly sooner). I don't speak Ilonggo or Tagalog but I can understand them both. And, since it has been years since I've visited, I'm no longer familiar with the city. I have a few questions (ok, a lot!) and I'd really appreciate your help :)

      - I will be traveling with my very blond, very American BF, who has never been to the Philippines. I want to show him just how welcoming and friendly Filipinos can be. Are there any fun destinations you might recommend that will showcase Filipino hospitality? (We are a young couple in our early 20's and 30's)

      - I have family in Bago as well as Bacolod and would love to visit them both. What is the best way to travel between those cities?

      - Is L'Fisher still the best hotel in Bacolod? ;)

      - Since I don't want to task my relatives with playing tour guide, are there local tour guides you can recommend to show us around for a day or two?

      - I'm a huge foodie, and I miss authentic Filipino food so much. I have been telling my BF about chicken inasal, which I can't find anywhere in East Coast USA. Who serves the best chicken inasal? Other restaurant recommendations would be great!

      - Before we return to the US, we would like to visit Palawan or Boracay for at least 2 nights. What is the best way to get to either destinations from Bacolod? What is your favorite resort/hotel in those locations?

      Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to making many friends here. Maybe I'll even see some of you when I visit! :)

      - Louise

      Or it will be better to go from airport to hotel by shuttle bus ( I`ve read it stopped near SM Bacolod) and having left small luggage at the hotel to visit Ruins?
      I`ve read one of websites where had been written that for visiting Punta Tay Tay one should take a jeepney routed Central Market to Punta Tay Tay. Is Central Market close to Check Inn hotel or it is Libertad ( Central Market)? How to find these jeepneys and approximate rate to go there ?
      I have prepared approximate itinerary for 4 whole days of my visiting Bacolod. May be you have any advices?
      1 day of arrival ( only half a day) Ruins
      2 day Guimaras island
      3 day Mambukal
      4 day Don Salvador-La Vista Higlands ( to take photos)- San Carlos ( Public park)
