      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:

      I'm travelling to the Philippines in April, for the first time. I'm a bit of a hygiene freak, and I'm wondering if they sell Glen 20 in the Philippines? If not, am I allowed to take a spray can like Glen 20 in my luggage?

    • 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!

      Does my itinerary look ok?

      Philippines 20 hours ago

      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.

      How to get to Bataan from Manila ?

      Bataan Nov 15, 2016 at 5:55 AM

      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.

      Once again I am unsure how do I get there from Manila ? How long would it take roughly ?

      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
      THanks

      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 :)

      Help with lodging & other activities

      Province of Albay Feb 4, 2008 at 2:03 AM

      there are 3 of us arriving in Legazpi on Feb 24 (sun). we'll be going to Donsol the morning of the 25th to see the whale sharks. we're not sure yet whether to stay overnight at Donsol or go back to Legazpi as we have not planned any activity (YET) -- the itinerary is still very flexible.

      i hope you could share insights in any of the ff:
      1. Any sugestions on where to stay in Legazpi? name, contact #s, emails?
      2. in Donsol?
      3. in Naga? (if ever we're going there)
      4. where else should we go with our spare time, 26th?
      5. or anything you want to share...

      1 will be flying out (of Legazpi) on the noon of the 26th, & 2 on the 27th.

      hope to read more replies,

      on my way back to manila, i plan to take the cebu pacific plane, but im quite curious sa phil. railways...

      can you please help me with this? i cant decide whether to take the plane, bus or train. i just have to be at manila airport on the 27th for my 4:50 PM flight to iloilo.

      What will be a good Albay/Sorsogon itinerary for 3 days?

      Province of Albay Oct 23, 2005 at 8:52 AM

      Hello VTers,

      This might be too late to post a question, but anyone might have a quick answer! I would like to make use of the long weekend (Oct 29 till Nov 1) roaming around the Albay and (if there is more time) the Sorsogon areas.

      I hear there is the Ibalong Festival in Legazpi City on the 29th. Thus, I will most definitely be in that city the whole afternoon till evening. In the morning - upon arrival - I plan to go see the Cagsawa Ruins and the Majestic Mayon itself (is that enough time?)

      But would anyone have suggestions as to what might be a good tour itinerary in Albay for the next 3 days? Yes, Donsol is an option (and I hope them Butandings are already hangin out there by then!) but what else is doable? Sorosogon teems with eco-tourism sites my 3 days might not be enough!

      Oh and by the way, am curious and may try the railway from Legaspi to Manila for my return trip. Is it worth the dare?
