My experience in Well Beach Resort, Zamboanguita

My experience in Well Beach Resort, Zamboanguita

The access road is a nightmare, arriving there on a motorcycle I was in for a big surprise. One would think that a good access road is a golden threshold of your resort. Hugh covered private parking, but no space for guests to park. I managed to park my motor on a small strip next to the new reception area. The hotels is a quiet place, waterfront, I would not call it beach. Since there is only a small strip…

Bambulo Resort in Bacong, Dumaguete, Philippines

Bambulo Resort in Bacong, Dumaguete, Philippines

Tucked away along the road to Valencia, in Bacong there is a little resort called Bambulo. I had the pleasure of staying there for a night or two. It is a gated resort with only a few bungalows and they rent out a few gazebos for family parties and gatherings. Combined with a restaurant and a swimming pool it makes the property complete. The mix of bungalow guest and day guest make it a lively place, lucky for those not…

Visa Extension in the Philippines: Cost breakdown

Visa Extension in the Philippines: Cost breakdown

It was time for my visa extension and since there is no Bureau of Immigration on Siquijor, I went to Dumaguete. Once in the office I learned that now I can do a six months visa extension in Dumaguete, no need to go to Cebu, Bacolod or Iloilo for that. Great improvement, but I needed to visit the ATM first, before applying. Since a 6 months visa is more expensive off course. But first things first, I got a question…

Traveling from Dumaguete to Boracay by bus

Time for some traveling, from Dumaguete to Iloilo and on to Boracay. By bus, as usual.
