      My 15 year old son (who knows everything about everything because he's 15!) has been invited to spend 2 weeks over Christmas with a school friend's family on the Island of Mindoro. After reading the British Embassy advice not to travel to Southern Philippines, of course as a mum I am so worried about the whole of the Philippines. Do you think it is very safe - I'd really love him to have this experience, but obviously not if he is in any danger at all? Thanks.

      My name is Shweta & I'm from India.
      I was looking for advice on my thought of traveling to Boracay in the first week of August this year before I head to Singapore for my holidays.
      I am mainly planning this visit to Boracay for the water sport activities including cliff diving. however I recently learnt that this period has rainfall and if luck is bad then it witnesses storms as well.
      Would really appreciate if anyone could advise me on whether the water sport activities operate during the first week of August and is safe or not??
      If not, is there any island close to Singapore that I could visit and do these activities.
      Thank you.

      Hi, VTers! How many days would you recommend 30 something year-olds spend in Boracay?

      My boyfriend and I are planning on fitting Boracay into our 3 week adventure to the Philippines. We will definitely be going to Palawan, so we'll get our island hopping, snorkelling and diving in there.

      The activities that seem to interest us in Boracay are cliff jumping, Mount Luho, massages, and checking out Puka Beach, Bulabog Beach, and White Beach. It seems like 3 days would be sufficient?

      Thanks in advance!

      Best Accomodation at Station 3

      by Antashaa Online Now Aug 29, 2015 at 12:14 PM

      Hi Guys!

      I need some advice from all of u. Im travelling to Boracay this coming October. Im planning to stay at Station 3 coz i dont really like crowded and noisy place. I need to check a few things as per below :-

      1. What is the best hotel in Station 3? I want a nice beachfront hotel. Maybe somewhere nearby Station 2.

      2. I read that there's a lot of complaint about the seaweed and also lots of boat at the beach in Station 3. Is that mean i cant swim and enjoy the beach there?

      3. I know that the nightlife is at Station 2. So im planning to hire a scooter. But i get to know that the rental is crazily costly. So if i want to take the tricycle, is it easily available? Even at 2 or 3am?

      4. I also really intrested to join the Party Cruise. I heard that its depart from Station 3. Their website shows that the price is around PHP2000. But in some blogs, they mention its PHP500 only. So can i just go and get the tickets at the island?

      5. If i would like to walk from Station 3 to Station 2, it would take me like 15-20 minutes. Is the path safe for tourist? Exspecially late a night.

      Thanks in advance and looking forward for any recomendation and tips.

    • Where can I get a visa extension on (or close to) Boracay? Is the only option in Kalibo?

      by Max_Waxman Online Now Jun 6, 2015 at 2:18 AM

      I have just arrived in Manila and was hoping to get my visa extended to approximately 40 days due to my holiday. However, upon arriving, I was told that the Bureau of Immigration is closed (today being Saturday).

      I had hoped to take care of this business at the airport, but since the office was closed, the officer told me that the closest place obtain a visa extension for Boracay is in Kalibo. I will be arriving at Caticlan Airport tomorrow (Sunday).

      I was hoping to take the ferry across to Boracay, but now I worry whether I will have to go to Kalibo for that visa extension?

      What are my options?

      Is there a place to get the visa extended on the island of Boracay?

      Is there a place to get it extended in the proximity of the Caticlan airport?

      Do I actually need to go all the way to Kalibo to do this?

      What is the penalty for overstaying a visa (not that want to find myself on the wrong end of the law)?

      Can I make from Caticlan to Kalibo and back in one day? Are there hotels in Kalibo and the Caticlan area that can accommodate me (even if only for a night)?

      Please advise as soon as possible. I would like to get to Boracay sooner rather than later.

      Thank you for your time.

      Will there be many westerners during these months?

      What is the approximate estimates of westerners visiting during that time of the year? Are they mostly Australian or European, or are there Americans and Canadians, too?

      The reason I ask is because I was in Mexico last year and the number of westerners was really minimal, so there was no one who I could really talk to due to the language barrier. I understand that many people in the Philippines speak English very well, but I would like to meet some westerners while there, too.

      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?

      by Max_Waxman Online Now Mar 18, 2015 at 7:21 PM


      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.

      I'd like to rent a room in Boracay mid February to mid March, I would like a private bathroom double bed and A/C don't really mind where it is as long as it's not too far away from the action, I hear when you pay in advance you can get a good discount, my budget is 30.000 pesos, would that be possible? Also any advice on how to find somewhere would be great!
