Planning to tour few places in Philippine for 4-5 days including a weekend in late June. Heard that Manila would be crowded. Hence planning to go to Bohol (Tagbilaran), Cebu and Boracay. However I am on a tight budget, so wondering whether the trip would be fine or not. I got hotel offers in Tagbilaran and Boracay for around 200HKD per night for two. Tripadvisor.com says that both hotels are very highly praised. It is a lean season there. Weather report forecast for the places during that period says around 30% chance of precipitation, generally cloudy. Cebu Pacific seems low cost flight solution both domestic and international transport by air in this region.
Now I would like to have comments from experienced expats on the above trip plan. I would like to know whether the logistics are okay and whether I am missing something. I won't stay in Cebu, but will make a half day trip there from Bohol by fast ferry (Takes 90 minutes) to do local sight seeing, mainly the old churches, Magellan's Cross, etc and come back by late afternoon. I am also a bit nervous about Cebu Pacific. Since I am arranging this trip myself, so not yet sure about the Visa requirements also, but guess there is a visa on arrival system there. I would really appreciate any kind of help on making this tour.
Oh, yes, I shall go with my wife!
