Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    The Philippines are vast and you need a lot of time (3 months maybe) for seeing it especially Mindanao seems very interesting.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Always honk when you are on a scooter and see a dog on the road. You never know how it will behave and you can easily save some wounds if you do so.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Defenitely take the overnight ferry to Cebu. Its a totally unique experience and you can save one night of accomodation. Most of the transport is done by speedboat or plane, but boat is defenitely more fun.
