A whale of a disappointment

A travel blog entry by charlotterowley


Soon enough 4am rolled around and time to do something again - check in for my flight. This is an airport that does not sleep. A buzz of activity ran through the night. Even at 4am in the morning, it could have been the middle of the day.

The flight to Legazpi is just an hour from Manila. I fell asleep as soon as I sat down, so didn't …

Had a wander round town, walked through the market and watched a basketball game. Then took a tricycle across town to register for whale sharks tomorrow. Could not believe my …

Whale Shark Encounter

A travel blog entry by kelvinhyong


It was a long journey from KL to Donsol. We took the midnight flight to Manila and arrivied at about 5 am. The connecting flight was at 10am. Imagine spending 5 hours at the airport waiting.

    Stayed here two nights. Would not recommend for backpackers as there are a couple other places in town that are cheaper and nicer. This is more of a resort with a couple of backpacker rooms, but the prices for food, tour and drinks are out of my budget. Comes with a free breakfast though. Nice.
