Organise Your travel documents for your trip to Manila

Before you even leave home, make sure that you have all the necessary travel documents for your trip – and back up hard and soft copies.

Even if Manila is generally safe, you never know when you might lose a copy of your visa or passport. In the worst case scenario, having extra copies of travel documents will save you time if and when you need to fly back home or talk to your embassy.

Pack Intelligently for the trip to the Philippines

The Philippines’ tropical climate can be a boon or bane, depending on your preferences. But it’s a hot country, and Manila is no exception. Pack light and prepare for dry weather, especially if you’re travelling during the warm months of February to May. 

You should bring added protection from the sun such as wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and sunblock even if you’re in the city. Don’t forget comfortable walking shoes, especially if you plan to walk around the cities quite a bit.  

 

Connectivity

The Philippines utilises 220V for electricity. Travellers can easily purchase adaptors in any mall or a shop that services mobile phones. Local SIM cards with data packages can be purchased inexpensively, but if you don’t have to be connected 24/7, all accommodations and some establishments also provide

WiFi. However, WiFi in the Philippines isn’t the fastest, but it works just fine for social media and texting apps.

Smoking Ban in Manila

The recently-implemented nationwide smoking ban affects several establishments throughout Manila, and if you’re caught smoking in a non-smoking area, you may be asked to pay a fine.

Certain restaurants and bars in Poblacion and Fort Bonifacio have designated smoking areas, so if this is a matter of concern to you, plan your days accordingly.

 

Manila

Smoking bans take place in most of the Philippines, including clubs.

 

Transportation in Manila

Trust me; you’ll want to use ride-sharing services such as Uber and Grab in the Philippines, especially in Manila where traffic and congestion are part of everyday life. The Grab app is more popular and more widely used than Uber, and it’s easy to book a car on it anywhere in the metro.

Since the rise of these apps, enduring unhygienic and smelly taxi rides have become a thing of the past, but taxis are still around. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can ride a jeepney for short distances, especially if you want to get a feel of how locals get around. Just make sure that you keep a close eye on your belongings. Otherwise, astute pocket pickers may get the best of you.

 

There you have it – if you follow these tips, your trip to Manila will be smooth sailing and fun. It’s more fun in the Philippines, as the travel slogan says if you prepare ahead of time and plan accordingly for your trip!

Around an hour and a half north of Manila is Pampanga, a province steeped in colourful history with numerous sightseeing options. However, the main draw of Pampanga for tourists is the mouth-watering gastronomic delights it offers.

Sisig was initially developed back in the ’70s by a lady is fondly known as Aling Lucing, and her namesake restaurant is serving the original recipe is still found in Pampanga.

Over the decades, sisig has evolved and is now considered a rockstar in Philippine cuisine, but if you don’t believe us – check out what Anthony Bourdain had to say about this dish.

For starters, there are many hot springs found in the area running from Calamba to Los Banos. The hot springs are therapeutic and utterly relaxing.

Corregidor is one of the most famous historic sites in the Philippines. Only accessible via a ferry from Manila Bay or Cavite, Corregidor today is considered a national shrine is memorialising the efforts of Filipino and American soldiers during World War II.

5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Romblon In The Philippines

5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Romblon In The Philippines

Authored by Diane Wuthrich (Contributor)

If you’re looking for an off-the-beaten-path beach destination in the Philippines, look no further than Romblon.

Romblon is located in Luzon, a region made up of three large islands: Romblon, Sibuyan, and Tablas. There are also 17 small islands scattered throughout the province. Compared to other touristy beaches and islands throughout the country, Romblon remains generally isolated; the tourism infrastructure only has the bare minimum and it can be challenging to get around from one island to another.

Don’t let that deter you, the isolation means that Romblon’s natural wonders are kept very well intact. There are majestic mountains, rich ecosystems in and out of the water, lush jungle, white sand beaches, and cool rivers to explore. Add to that the fact that there are barely any other travellers around, and you’ve got an amazing paradise where you can snorkel, scuba dive, hike, swim, or just lay on a quiet beach for some good old R&R.

 Here are 5 reasons why you should visit Romblon in the Philippines:

 

1.      The Cresta del Gallo Islet

 Easily the most beautiful and well-known attraction in Romblon is a remote sandbar called Cresta del Gallo. No larger than 5 kilometers long, Cresta del Gallo can only be reached via Sibuyan island. Due to its seclusion, the sandbar isn’t habitable, but it makes for a great day trip.

The waters are a magnificent shade of turquoise, and the sand is a clean, powdery white. Bring all the essentials you need for a day out in the sun: there are no bathrooms or resorts here. And don’t forget your camera: Cresta del Gallo is so picturesque!

 2.      Bonbon Beach

 This beach is as sweet as it sounds. Situated just 5km from the town centre of Romblon, Romblon, Bonbon beach is easily accessible and shouldn’t be missed. It’s a 2km stretch of white sand that connected to Bang-ug island, another uninhabited islet. Bonbon beach is popular, although you’ll encounter very few travellers while you’re there.

You can enjoy picnic at Bonbon beach (there’s a handful of small huts for when the sun gets too strong) or walk to the nearby Marlin Bar (15-20 minutes away) for island-style refreshments.

When it’s low tide, you may be able to walk to the Bang-ug island. Other things to do while in Bonbon include exploring the nearby beaches separated by rocky formations – so make sure that you bring along protective footwear.

 3.      Catingas River

 Considered as one of the cleanest rivers in the Philippines, Catingas River is worth the travel to Sibuyan island. The waters are extremely cold and refreshing, perfect for cooling down after spending days in the sun.

There’s a makeshift wooden jump board if you’re brave enough for cliff jumping. Catingas’ headwaters originate from the jagged Mt. Guiting Guiting, and it supplies most of Sibyan island’s electricity via a hydroelectric power plant.

The area surrounding Catingas is quiet and peaceful, it’s a great place to unwind. There are shallow areas as well as sudden drops, and a man-made waterfall where water from the hydroelectric power plant flows to the river – an amazing feat of both technology and nature. The best way to enjoy a day in Catingas river is to bring your own food and refreshments.

 4.      Aglicay Beach Resort

One of Romblon’s finest accommodations, Aglicay Beach Resort is located close to the airport. Its unique feature is a private coast featuring half a kilometre’s stretch of white sand, while the beach has crystal clear turquoise waters.

If you’re looking for some privacy in a tropical paradise, Aglicay Beach Resort is highly recommended. It might not be 5-star, but the prices are mid-range and you’ll have an unforgettable beach experience here.

The beach has several bamboo huts for privacy and shade away from the bedroom where you can eat and have drinks by the sea. If you’re staying at another nearby resort, Aglicay is open to outsiders for a minimal entrance fee. The hotel’s restaurant serves excellent seaside fare, including some of the freshest seafood this side of the country.

 5.      Romblon town proper

 The Romblon, Romblon town proper is known for being the marble capital of the Philippines, producing marble that is among the world’s best. There are several marble factories and shops to explore, a great chance to see fine marble in many forms including white, black, blue, and green with the most expensive being the rare, hundred-century old black onyx marbles.

If you’re looking for marble pieces from sculptures to key chains, there are many available in town at affordable prices.

That’s not all there is to see in the town proper. After spending time in the mostly remote areas of Romblon, the town proper is where you can feast on international cuisine at inexpensive prices.

There’s the Romblon deli, as well as the terrific authentic Italian fare at JD&G’s Italian. Shop for local handicrafts at the several small vendors around town. Visit the Saint Joseph Cathedral, the oldest Roman Catholic church in the province which has been declared a National Cultural Treasure.

 With the exception of Aglicay Beach Resort, the accommodation options throughout Romblon are on the budget side. There are inexpensive homestays and inns for around AUS $14, and the food is cheap but fresh and delicious. Wi-Fi and mobile signal is scarce in most areas, so be prepared to get off the grid for a few days, unplug, and connect with nature. Plus, the locals are friendly and happy to help if you have any questions about getting around or visiting tourist sites.

 What you must remember about traveling to Romblon is to approach it with an open mind. Getting around from one island to another is considered an adventure, but you will be rewarded generously with some of the most unique landscapes and experiences that can’t be found anywhere else in the Philippines.

What To pack for your trip to the Philippines

What To pack for your trip to the Philippines

Authored by Diane Wuthrich (Contributor)

Some of the most beautiful destinations in the Philippines are in the coastal areas. From remote tropical islands to well-established beach destinations, you’ll find yourself spoilt for choice when choosing a beach getaway in the country of over seven thousand islands.

That being said, you’ll want to come prepared. Some island destinations are more remote and lack supplies, and in beach areas that are already established, finding the necessities you need may be more expensive than usual.

When it comes to the weather, we like to joke that the two seasons of the Philippines are not wet and dry, but hot with rain, and hot without rain.

 

Are you heading to the Philippines? Before you pack, book your hotel with TripAdvisor!

 

what to pack to Philippines

What To pack for your trip to the Philippines

 

 

Light & Comfortable Clothing

 During the hottest months of February to May, the heat in the Philippines can be described as oppressive. If you are travelling during this period, pack the lightest clothes possible – it will be a struggle keeping them on, that’s for sure. You’ll also be moving around quite a bit, so you’ll want clothes that will allow you to move.

From June to January, unexpected rains occur more frequently, which brings with it some humidity. It’s also advisable to pack shoes that will protect your feet from crossing wet, flooded, or muddy areas in and around island destinations.

Pack a pair of sturdy flip-flops, which is the norm, particularly in beach settings. If you want to travel light, most destinations will have a laundry service available so you can pack just a few pieces of clothing and have them washed afterwards.

Add to the list

 

 

Sun-Smart Gear

A healthy dose of sun is ever-present in the Philippines. Taking an umbrella with you is a smart move, especially if you’re sensitive to the sun’s rays or don’t enjoy sun exposure. If it doesn’t protect you during the rainy season, an umbrella will come in handy during hot days.

Other sun-smart travel gear to pack include a wide-brimmed hat or cap, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Even if you enjoy tanning, be sure to pack tanning oil that already comes with SPF protection.

Add to the list

 

 

Waterproof Bags

You’ll want to keep your gadgets protected from the elements, especially when you’re in the Philippines. Expect to be outdoors, by the beach, or travelling by sea frequently.

Taking a waterproof dry bag will keep your camera, smartphones, and other gadgets safe from unexpected splashes of water and even sand, which can cause severe damage to electronics. Having a waterproof bag will give you peace of mind, particularly when you’re going to spend a lot of time at the beach, island hopping, or doing extreme water activities such as canyoneering.

Add to the list

 

Backpack or Daypack

For a day of sightseeing, bring along a backpack or a small daypack that’s big enough to store your necessities. Men may prefer a pack, and women may be fine with a small body bag. Just ensure that it’s sturdy and comfortable while keeping your hands free for taking photos, driving a motorbike, and other activities during your sightseeing trip.

Add to the list

 

Toiletries & Medicine

Bring a good supply of your prescription medicines or other individual items you may need, such as an asthma inhaler. It’s also wise to pack essential medicines for headaches, hay fever, cold and flu, Imodium, and Tums because you will never know when you’ll suddenly be bogged down by something.

As for other toiletries, bring along tissue and wet wipes (it’s not uncommon for public bathrooms in the Philippines to be devoid of fabric), hand sanitizer, feminine hygiene products, and deodorant to ensure that you stay fresh all day long.

Mosquitoes are rampant in the Philippines, so make sure that you have insect repellent with you at all times.

Before your trip, you may also want to consider getting travel insurance, not just consider it, but demand it, because only a fool will travel without travel insurance. Purchasing insurance will give you peace of mind in case the unexpected happens while going to the Philippines.

Add to the list

 

Now you know what to bring to the Philippines, it’s time to pack your bags and have the holiday of your life in paradise.

The Five Best Beaches In Cebu You Shouldn’t Avoid when in the Philippines

The Five Best Beaches In Cebu You Shouldn’t Avoid when in the Philippines

Authored by Diane Wuthrich (Contributor) 

Cebu is a popular choice for travellers looking for an abundance of tropical travel experiences while holidaying in the Philippines.

The city centre can get hectic with traffic, but there are several excellent Cebu beaches around the island that promises an exciting day out.

It’s an area well-known for being one of the best destinations in the Philippines (and in Asia) for diving, but there are ample opportunities for snorkelling and relaxing too.

While in Cebu, be prepared to indulge in some of the freshest, most delicious seafood, because Cebu is known for its beaches just as much as the local cuisine, and you’ll find fresh seafood in all the beach destinations.

No one does pork better than the Cebuanos – so don’t leave without trying lechon, or roast suckling pick hailed by Anthony Bourdain as the best pig in the world while you rest and also do the best things to do on Cebu Island.

These are the five beaches of Cebu that you shouldn’t miss.

 

Mactan

Just minutes away from the Cebu city centre is Mactan beach, one of the best beaches in Cebu and is separated from the main island by two bridges. Mactan’s coast also has many resorts, from five-star accommodations to smaller dive resorts, when you feel like staying a little longer.

Mactan beach is accessible from the city via a taxi or Uber, and if you aren’t booked at one of the beachfront hotels, you may enjoy the private beaches of a resort by paying a small entrance fee since there are no public beaches nearby.

Bantayan Island

Bantayan Island is home to some of Cebu’s most beautiful white sand beaches and clear azure waters. The island, which spans 51 square miles, has several beaches but the most popular choice for travellers in Santa Fe.

If you had to choose just one island in Cebu to visit, make it Bantayan Island – you wouldn’t regret it! The vibe is laid back, and you’ll rarely see droves of tourists except during Easter.

It’s perfect for a romantic or soul-searching holiday where most of your time will be spent lazing around the beach or reading a book.

There are no luxurious hotels in Bantayan island; most of them are in the budget and mid-range category, so it’s highly recommended for price-conscious travellers.

There is also the option of taking a day trip to Virgin island, a 30-minute outrigger boat ride away from Bantayan island whose postcard-picture beaches will blow you away.

 

Bantayan Island

Relax at Bantayan Island.

 

 

Malapascua

Malapascua is an island in Cebu that is famous in the international diving community for the thresher shark dives in Monad Shoal. Divers from all over the world come to Malapasuca to experience this once in a lifetime event.

Gato Island is also another popular dive spot, known for the white tip sharks, an incredible underground tunnel. However, Malapascua also has much more to offer even if you don’t dive.

 

Cebu sunset

Sunsets will be your favourite memory in Cebu.

 

Next, head on over to Bounty Beach, a gorgeous white-sand beach with turquoise waters and coconut trees lining the shore.

Bounty Beach has several resorts to choose from, as well as small bars and restaurants that are perfect for enjoying an ice-cold San Miguel beer while taking in the views.

Lighthouse Beach in Malapascua is excellent for snorkelling; the main attraction here is the shallow Japanese wrecks featuring remains of a ship that has turned into an artificial reef.

Kalanggaman Island is worthy of a day trip from Malapascua; just 2 hours away by boat is a stunning, bright white sandbar where there’s nothing else but a patch of coconut trees.

Many consider Kalanggaman Island to be one of the most beautiful in all the Philippines, but due to the complete absence of any tourist accommodations or facilities, make sure to bring your food and spend a day relishing the sea and sun.

Moalboal

Moalboal is another great choice for divers, as well as travellers who enjoy the occasional snorkel. If you’re lucky you’ll come across an elusive sea turtle, but the marine life in Moalboal is just too good that it would be a big mistake not to go on at least one snorkelling trip.

From colourful corals to fish of all sizes, you’ll be captivated by what you’ll find underwater.

The two main areas of Moalboal are White Beach and Panagsama Beach. White Beach is quiet and relaxing; there is no nightlife, but the beaches and sunsets are spectacular.

If you’re looking for a tropical paradise to disconnect and get away from it all truly, White Beach is a good option.

On the other hand, Panagsama Beach is a little busier, dotted with several dive shops, bars, restaurants, and small resorts. Enjoy a cocktail at Panagsama while watching the sun go down from one of the many beachfront bars.

However, one of the most exciting attractions in Panagsama Beach is the famed sardine run, where millions of tiny sardines form a big cluster.

You don’t need to dive to experience the sardine run – the best part is that it’s not too far from the shore so that snorkelling will do.

 

Look for hotels in Moalboal on TripAdvisor!

Camotes Islands

The Camotes Islands are made up of four islands: Ponson, Poro, Pacjian, and Tulang. Considered a little more off-the-beaten-track, the Camotes Islands are pristine but require some effort in terms of getting around.

These islands are well-loved among travellers for their unspoiled beauty, sparkling blue waters, and beautiful white sand.

The quiet shorelines invite you to sunbathe and enjoy some R&R with a cold beer in hand. Among these four islands, their many beaches to see; some of the most beautiful is the Bakhaw Beach and the Santiago Bay.

If you’re visiting Pacjian, take an afternoon trip to see the tranquil emerald waters of Lake Danao, a 700-hectare body of water whose romantic ambience makes it a favourite destination of lovers.

That’s a wrap of some of the beaches near Cebu City, all you need to do now is book a luxury holiday and spend time in Paradise.
