lessons learned:

1. No cheap meal for me, since I’m a little bit choosy with food & drinks (due to sensitive stomach & taste bud), so next time, prepare additional budget allotted for Food. Plus cost of drinking water & consumption per day. And its best to try their local food & best seller don’t you think 🙂

2. Don’t forget the fees for Terminal – airport & pier

3. Don’t forget to bring the following so that it will not add to your running budget
a. Medicines
b. Alcohol
c. Shampoo & Soap
d. Sunblock & lotions

4. If you have goggles & snorkel gear – bring it! if you intend to do island hopping

  9. Hi! This is awesome! You got some travel organizing skills there! Thank you for this! 🙂 I am just wondering, what transpo did you take going back to Manila? Did I get it right that you took a van which cost 300? Do you have to book it earlier from an agency or just go to the terminal? This is fantastic, and such a great help. Will wait for your reply. Thank you! 🙂
