    On my trip to the Phillipines (2014) I would like to visit the Ati Atihan (Kalibo) and Sinulog festival (Cebu City) but the highlights of both festivals seem to be in the same weekend, although I found some different information about the dates of the Ati Atihan. For the Ati Atihan I found 10-19 january but also 20-26 january (and starting the 3rd monday in january). The Sinulog weekend seems to be on january 18 and 19.

    About this a few questions:

    1. Can someone tell the exact days of both festivals and tell which dates are the highlights of both festivals?

    2. If the highlights are on the same dates, which would you choose to visit and would it be an alternative to visit the other festival before or afterwards?

    3. Are there stands, do you have to reserve seats/places in advance or you can just walk around almost everywhere?

    4. How far ahead do I need to book a room in advance?

    5. Recommendations/advice?

    Thanks answering in advance,
