    Cebu - Help!

    January is a very busy month in Cebu. Lots of visitors due to Sinulog Festival....Airports, roads an hotels will be very busy. Book well ahead of time. Some hotels charge premium rates during Sinulog. When u get here most hotels will negotiate a monthly rate and u can pay 25-35% less than posted rates.

    Kanu tax

    It is always better to have a trusted Local purchase anything for you or you will almost always pay more.

    You nailed it.......i would only add the public market at the foot of Sessions Road, SM mall, and the strawberry fields in La Trinidad.
  5. I tried the online fare/booking search thing on several different websites last month, aware of the cookie thing, best fare i could come up with was about 2100 cad. which i thought was outrageous. Went to a travel agent and she found me a fare of about 1200cad. It only cost 40 bucks for the service.

    How Safe is Philippines?

    One ounce of milk chocolate per pound of body weight should do it.

    Grab or Taxi?

    Grab works well for me in Cebu City.
  8. I have had to transfer planes in HK with a 50 minute layover twice. I only had a backpack, no luggage and I did go thru security. i raced from one end of the airport to the other end and just made it, they were closing the doors when i got to the plane. I flew Cathay Vancouver to Hk to Cebu.

    Help with British Expatriate in Baua, Gonzaga

    Having a pistol on a lanyard around his neck probably doesn’t help the cause here.
