Planning my Philippines trip

Posted by dylantombides on 2/5/2017 at 16:31

3 weeks in the Philippines in September. I land in Manila and fly from Manila at the end of my trip. To get the most out of my trip I want to leave Manila airport that same night to my first destination. However I land in Manila at 6.55pm which limits where I can fly to at this time. I'd like to visit in no order: 1) Palawan 2) Bohol 3) Cebu island as my base and from there go to Oslob, Siquijor, Siargao, Camiguin, Apo Island. I have realised I have chosen too many places to see in only 2 ...

Coron accommodation - do we need to book online in advance?

Posted by hellomoto84 on 3/4/2017 at 19:33

Hi, We are due to be on Coron island mid April for 3nights and wondering if we need to book accommodation in advance? Having looked online there seem to be limited options and what is available is quite expensive for us. We look to spend usually $25 (pref less) for a private double. We've been in SE Asia for the last 6months so aren't too fussy but would like it to be of a good standard for that - clean, with a fan/air con, wifi. Oh and a window! Does anyone have any experience of accommod ...

But also want to do some sightseeing/trekking and mayb ...

Discrimination on Tripadvisor?

Posted by juandelacruz102 on 13/2/2017 at 00:45

Just wondering if anyone has an advice for me… RE: Tripadvisor Travel Article The sudden disabling of the option to create and edit Articles is unfair to some people like me! My name was mention in that article before but it was removed with the roll back wars. Upon checking the version history, it seems 1st time joiners manage to edit & remove those drivers’ info (including mine) and add their own with fantastic descriptions! You can see they join TA just to ...
