Help me my itinerary !

Hello its me again :)

I’m planning to go Cebu, Palwan for 2 weeks

23:30 8/19 Arrived in Cebu

12:20 9/2 Depart in Manila

Im gonna stay in Elnido for 4-5 days and Coron for 2-3 days.

But i couldnt decide where i should go in cebu.

I wanna go Siquijor,Bohol,Oslob(only for swimming with shark) but i guess it’d be too tight schedule for 6 days.

Can you guys recommend which place you guys are prefer?

Actually i prefer go to Siquijor ( but kind of hard to go there from Cebu) so i couldnt decide it!

Plus its raining season so it will be difficult to take a ferry somehow And maybe some falls in Siquijor will be all mud / brown color.

So what i want to ask is recommend among these 3 places Oslob,Bohol,Siquijor!

And give me any advice of my schedule

It doesn't matter what I prefer. If you prefer Siquijor then go to Siquijor. It is not difficult to get to Siquijor from Cebu, see the ferry schedules here http://siquijordirectory.com/ferryshippings/

Oslob whale sharks only takes 30 mins and starts at 6 am. Get a bus to Lilioan and then ferry to Dumaguette. You can be in Siquijor by afternoon

The whale shark and most of the accommodation is on the main road. Stay one night,get up early ,you are only allowed 30 mins in the water. Go back and get your luggage at your accommodation and flag a bus down going south

You can see Siquijor in a full day if you hire a motorbike and go round the island, but i would recommend 3 day for a more relaxing time.

Go to Moalboal after Oslob if you think it’s too rushed going to siquijor.

Lots to do there. Sardine run, Kawasan falls swimwith turtles. It’s easy to get back to Cebu from there.

Lets see this practically -

19 Aug late night - you arrive in Cebu

20 am - Take flight to Coron

21-22-23 - Coron

24 - take ferry to El Nido

25-26-27-28-29 = Stay in El Nido

That leaves 30 (for the travel to your next destination)

31 - 1 (for your stay)

2 - Your flight should arrive in Manila early morning in time for your onward flight.

Me thinks you are cutting it really fine.

The only place I would suggest is Bohol - simply (a) for its pretty places and (b) for its timely connectivity.

I would perhaps suggest reducing a day from El Nido and transferring it to Bohol. That way you can take an evening flight from Bohol to Manila, and not worry about flight delays on the morning of your return flight.
