Not sure that the Lonely Planet were playing at, making this their "Top Pick" but Kukuk's Nest is absolutely vile.

It's cheap - yes, but there is much better accommodation available for less in Cebu.

The rooms are dark - probably for the best as they are completely filthy and infested. No mosquito nets, insects everywhere, rat infestation (one of the little gits chewed a hole through my backpack!), sheets are dirty and have holes chewed in them. The shared bathroom is filthy and falling apart, oh, and there's no running water in the mornings either. And the wifi doesn't work either (although admittedly the other problems took my mind off the lack of wifi)

For an experience like this I'd expect to pay 100 pesos per night, not 400. It's an absolute joke. My skin's crawling just thinking about the place. There are plenty of other options out there, much nicer and cheaper also. Do yourself a favour and stay far far away from this sh1thole. ...

last day in PP and arrive in Cebu City
since my flight was at 12.35 and I was very close to the airport the morning I wanted to do a long walknot to the city neurotic but in the opposite direction and found a nice residential area with a lot of greenery and beautiful homes, even villas with beautiful parks and gardens up to the beach and more like that of the Microtel with an expanse of mongrovie, sand and rocky outcrops on ...

... mountains, an area yet unexplored in my year of being here. We met with my friends family, mama, kuya, and all and yet again something i should now be accustomed is the warmth and friendship of Filipinos, it just blows me away. Yet again i am shamed, and uncomfortable with the generosity of people with so little wiling to share it all with someone comparatively who has it all.

Our friend then proceeded to take us deeper into the ...

... mass with a meal afterwards, staying as a family from Christmas day through to New Year, at which everyone wears red, lots of church, lots of caroling and very particular but delicious-sounding food. Headed to our glorious abode for pancet dinner and shower before donning our dresses (which practically matched what losers we are) and heading to Shagri La Resort for a free Moet Et Chandon party! Whoop. Clambering onto a jeepney in a dress is completely indelicate and probably obscene ...

... and atrocious the next, sometimes even at the same restaurant. The Filipinos also have not figured out how to make a decent curry, and if you have any chance of getting a good one you should look in a foreign owned restaurant, although real Indian restaurants are in very short supply. I’ve been told that the Lechon de Leche (roasted suckling pig) is quite reliable and delicious, although I never had a chance to try it because you have to order it as a ...

... a few days in bohol so we tried to get as much scenery as we could. there was the Sandugo Commemorative Shrine which reminds Filipinos that there was a blood compact between Datu Sikatuna who was the chieftain of Tagbilaran and Spaniard Miguel Lopez de Legaspi that set out to foster good relations between the two cultures.

Next stop was the Baclayon Church. Built in 1727 by the Spanish Jesuits, it is one of the ...
