Philippines for 16 days in September.

Posted by idif on 26/7/2015 at 02:00

Hi. We are arriving at Manila on the 19th of September for 16 days. We read that in terms of weather, the best area is the central visayas, so we plan to visit at least Bohol, Negros and Boracay. Our question is whether we should try to visit El-Nido as well. Is there something in El-nido that we will not find in the other locations? Is it worth it (the long trip from one side of the Philippines to the other?). Anyway, we will be happy for any recommendations for the Visayas area. Thanks a lo ...

Philippines in 21 days. Options?

Posted by niggles on 28/7/2015 at 04:14

Hey all, Going to Phils middle of next month for about 3 weeks. Was kinda undecided if i would be in Phils or spend half time visiting Hanoi either first half or second of my time. Anyways, looking through various forums, i get the impression not many want to or advise people to hang around manila for any length of time - in some cases used as a jump off point to Cebu or other islands. Is manila that boring or unappealing?. Im not into beaches not adventuring, although i dont mind light trekki ...

travelling to Siargao in October

Posted by Marieke83 on 14/8/2015 at 04:09

Hi Guys, We are planning a trip to Siargao (philippines) end of september and october this year. According to many surf forums and travel blogs, october should be a very good period to travel to Siargao (especially for surfing). Just what just worries me a bit is the fact that october should be the most risky period of the typhoon season in philippines. Does anyone have experience with travelling in october to Philippines and Siargao in particulary? - Is Siargao itself a risky area for typhoons ...

Visit the Philippines or Return to Vietnam?

Posted by sunbell79 on 21/9/2013 at 12:17

Hi, I know that this is pretty open ended, but I thought I'd throw it out there. Each Spring my husband and I take a big trip and next year we're debating between visiting the Philippines for the first time or returning to Vietnam, which we absolutely loved two years ago. There's still much to uncover in Vietnam: Sapa, Central Highlands, MeKong Delta, etc. But, we might love the Philippines even more. On our trips we of course love gorgeous beaches, but more than that, we love to get to know a ...

Getting to Beaches from Manilla

Posted by adammcintyre on 2/4/2014 at 04:18

Hey everyone, I fly into Manila in a couple weeks. I have a couple questions: 1. What currencies are accepted at immigration for visas? Should I get a bunch of Pesos before I arrive? Or will I need USD or other foreign currencies? 2. Is it easy to get from Manila to islands / beaches and travel around for a backpacker? Let's say, in comparison to Thailand. Where getting from A-B couldn't be easier. 3. Shall I book hostels for islands/beach resorts in advanced, or shall I just turn up and fin ...

My family and I (2 adults, 3 children under 12) will be in the Philippines from mid June to mid July 2015. We are interested in homestays with local people, being involved in their way of life, eating their food etc. Any area will be considered. I would like 100% of my money (if possible) to go to my host and the local community in which we stay, rather than admin fees for an internet site. However, internet site info is also welcome.
