      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,


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

      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:

      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?

      Just trying to plan where to go for a few days from Manila and found a nice hotel in the bay of Bataan. It is not a beautiful place but looks quite varied and intesting, with some sandy bays around the penisular.

      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


      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


      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 :)

      Laoag Inquiries

      Hello Guys,

      Good day.

      I will be needing your inputs regarding our planned Ilocos trip.

      My girlfriend and I will be leaving Vigan in the morning. i would like to ask some inquiries:

      1. From Vigan, where we can ride a transportation (bus/jeep/trike) going to Laoag?
      2. How much is the fare from Vigan to Laoag?
      3. Do you think, 4 hours exploration within the place is enough?
      4. Our next destination is in Pagudpud, can we catch up a transportation going to Pagudpud? If yes, where?
      5. Is it safe to travel in the evening from Laoag to Pagudpud?

      Again, thank you guys for your inputs..

      Looking forward to your replies..

      Ilocos Tour 2010

      by midnightweird Online Now Jun 7, 2010 at 3:25 AM

      Hi guys,

      I will be going to Ilocos this coming July 03-05 2010. I have been planning this since May but the blogs that i have referenced seemed to be outdated and I cannot how will I make it out in a very limited budget.

      Here is my sample itinerary which I have been planned since May:

      Day 01 - July 03

      2:30 PM : Arrival at Laoag Airport
      3:00 PM : Check in at Hotel
      4:00 PM : Laoag City Tour
      7:00 PM : Dinner

      Day 02 - July 04

      7:00 AM : Breakfast
      8:00 AM : Travel to Pagudpud
      - Saud / Blue Lagoon
      - Kabigan Falls
      - Patapat Viaduct
      - Bangui Windmills
      - Cape Borjeador Light house
      - Biscocho at Pasuquin Market
      - St. Andrew Church and Ruins, Baccarra
      5:00 PM : Travel back to Hotel
      7:00 PM : Dinner

      Day 03 - July 05

      7:00 AM : Breakfast
      8:00 AM : Travel South
      - Paoay Church
      - Marcos Museum, Batac
      - Vigan Heritage Village
      - Bantay Church
      - Museums
      3:00 PM : Travel back to Hotel
      7:00 PM : Dinner/ Check out

      We have arranged our accommodation with Northview Hotel and they said that they can offer 2500/day car rental with a driver for our Pagudpud tour (excluding gas expense)and 1500/day for Laoag City tour.

      I find the offer very expensive.

      I was thinking if we can just ride a jeep/bus to Pagudpud, have a day tour at a resort then hire a trike to take us around Pagudpud up to Bangui. Then travel again by Jeep/Bus to Burgos Town and trike our way up to the Bojeador lighthouse. Then go back to Hotel by bus en route to Laoag City.

      For Paoay/Batac/Vigan Tour, take the Jeep/Bus and jump from each town and go back to Hotel at the end of the day.

      My question here guys, is it more expensive to accept the tour arrangement of our hotel for 4000/day excluding gas (Pagudpud&Laoag) or let ourselves enjoy the adventure of jumping each town by Jeep/Bus??

      I am pressured right now because this is supposed to be a surprise for my loved one and I am not planning to reveal the surprise until the day we're going to leave. This will be a 3rd anniversary gift.

      I am hoping that you can help us with this and it will be highly appreciated.

      Trip to Laoag, Paoay, Pagudpud and also Vigan

      by travelingcebuano Online Now Jan 27, 2010 at 11:58 PM

      Greetings! We, together with my uncle and aunt (in their late sixties) are planning a trip to Laoag to see the city, as well as Pagudpud, Paoay and an overnight stay in Vigan.

      We will be arriving in Laoag airport and we wanted to know if there is an easy way to get to the city from the airport? How does one travel? Taxi? Jeepney? Tricycle? My uncle has a bad back and I am a bit hesitant to put him in a tricycle.

      So far, we have heard good things about affordable hotels within our budget (double room for 1,000 to 1,400).

      Can anyone message me their reviews/opinions on:
      Palazzo de Laoag Hotel
      North View Hotel
      Balay Da Bas
      Renzo Hotel

      What about hotels like Hotel Tiffany and Isabel Suites?

      Can anyone recommend a reliable tour contact where we can hire a car, for the 3 of us, to visit Paoay and Pagudpud? What are the recommended historic sites to visit? We would love to photography scenery and historic architecture.

      We would like to get a bus on our 3rd day to spend an evening in Vigan. Is this easy for us to travel to Vigan from Laoag?

      Hoping for some great advice from you all. Thanks for your kindness.
