      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:

      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!

      Where to spend 2 week

      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 :)

I am planning to take trips from Manila to Baguio from 7am, and from Baguio to Banaue, if possible even if that means that I would arrive in BATAD in the evening. I really want to go to BATAD. If I can't travel on that very day on Oct29, then I would have no chance as well of touring BATAD. My TOur will not be complete. Pls reply. Thanks !

      Hi. We're going to Sagada this weekend and we're taking the via Banaue route. We just found out that Autobus has stopped operation for the meantime and we were referred to take Ohayami Bus (its terminal is about two blocks away from Autobus terminal in Cayco St). Anyone here who tried taking Ohayami bus from Manila to Banaue? Are they okay (not prone to breakdowns on the road, leaves for banaue on time)? How long does it travel from Manila to Banaue? Is it 9hrs?

      I'd also like to ask if there is an alternative to the 830am jeepney from Banaue to Bontoc? I'd like to be sure that we have a back up if in case we cannot take the 830am jeepney? I've read somewhere that there are also buses plying Banaue-Bontoc route, is this true? Where is the bus terminal in banaue? Thanks.

    • Advice on Banaue Itinerary

      Banaue Oct 18, 2010 at 11:18 AM

      We have planned the following itinerary for our Banaue part of the trip:
      This is for the week before Easter. So I assume it will be quite busy. Would really appreciate advice or comments

      Thu: Take the Florida bus to Banaue at 10.45pm. Arrive Friday morning (How early in advance is the bus ticket bookable?). Register at tourist office and take either a jeepney or tricycle to the viewpoints and on to Batad. Stay at Hillview Inn if possible. Get a porter for our luggage and later hike to the village.

      Next day early morning, start to hike to the waterfall, pick up our luggage afterwards and hike back to the Saddle. Arrange for transport back to Banaue at around 3pm and travel on to Uhaj Native Village Inn. Would we have to organise our return transport the day before? If so, how reliable are drivers to pick you up? Can it be arranged from Batad instead, maybe through the B&B? Also if we leave from the Saddle at 3pm, would we manage to get to the Uhaj Native Village Inn before dark?

      Sunday: relax and explore rice terraces around the Inn, perhaps travel to Hapao and return to Manila on the 8 pm bus. Are we likely to encounter any difficulties getting seats on the return leg of the bus journey, if we try to book it as soon as we arrive in Banaue? I’m a bit concerned given it will be only a week before Easter. Is it not possible to book the return leg before setting out from Manila?

      Are jeepnies for private hire readily available in Banaue?

      I also have a question regarding the waterfall hike at Batad. If we set out after breakfast, do we have enough time to get to the waterfall and back up to the Saddle by 3pm? I know it’s only supposed to take an hour each way, but that surely depends on the hikers. I am reasonably fit and have done other major hikes such as the Inca trail and the W in Torres del Paine, but I am not too keen on heights and tend to take my time when descending any steep slopes or clambering over boulders. I don’t want to miss out on this though, as it looks fab. Any advice would be appreciated.

      I've been reading some posts about how to get to the Rice Terraces. As far as I understand it we can get a bus from Manila to Banaue - this bus leaves Manila about 10.30/10.45 pm?
      I haven't been able to find a huge amount of information about the return journey and had a couple of questions:
      1. Do the buses go every day?
      2. What time is the return trip from Banaue to manila?
      3. Are there pitstops along the way (e.g. for food/restrooms etc.)

    • How can I get to Laoag (or Vigan) from Banaue?

      Banaue Jun 18, 2010 at 3:26 PM

      Hi trekkers,

      We’re planning a trip around the Philippines this year, and need a little expert advice. Question is how would you get to Laoag from Banaue? We’ll be visiting the rice terraces and want to go to the sand dunes after. We’d even suffice for a route from Banaue to Vigan if there isn’t a good route to Laoag.

      We are trying to avoid backtracking to Baguio or Manila. We’ve heard there’s a route from Banaue to Tuguegarao, and then onto Laoag, but that seems like it would be the long way around.

      We’re looking for the quickest route. We’ll be traveling the week of Christmas too, if that changes anything.

      Please include departure times, stations, phone numbers, anything you can.

      Thanks for your help all!
