It’s my first time to travel to Palawan and to travel solo. I don’t know what to expect but I must admit its a good feeling to have finally travel solo. Since it’s my first solo trip, of course I have to make sure of my safety hihiihih… I may have over budget for my accommodation but its worth it! I booked a standard room with FREE breakfast and complimentary pick-up from the airport. When I arrived I was greeted by one of their staff and we headed back to the hotel.
One minor issue with them is during my booking, they have provided me with a different computation for my room reservation. I have deposited 50% for the reservation of the room and availed of their Underground River Tour. This was easily settled and corrected by the person who is in charge.
When I got to the hotel, friendly staff greeted me with a big smile. After explaining the policy I was sent to my room for the next 3 days.

For our second guesthouse, we stayed at Kpopstay Guesthouse near Hongdae and just walking distance from Hongik University. You might be wondering why transfer from one place to another. I would like to think it’s strategic since our planned itinerary is also in those areas, and we can explore the place whenever we want and just a walking distance to Hongdae, where night life is just around the corner. Kpopstay is located to a more quiet area in Hongdae, so you don’t have to worry about the noise around the area.
I have been wanting to stay in one of their dorm rooms since I have learned about their guesthouse. I contacted them directly and booked, mixed dorm rooms which cost around 25,000won/per night/ per head which is also a good deal because it also include FREE breakfast. Once I have confirmed our booking, no need to pay immediately, you can pay once you have checked-in with the guesthouse on the day you of your arrival.
We had a struggle finding the place when we get off the subway station (Hongik Station, Exit 9) and imagine we’re dragging our heavy luggage on steep slopes. But with a little help from our Korean chingus, we easily found the place, even some of them struggle to speak English, they still try their best to help tourist find their way. ^_____^v Kamsamnida!

I’m no newbie in Boracay, but it’s my first time at La Carmela de Boracay in Station 2. As always, I always try to find a good place to stay at a very reasonable price without sacrificing comfort and breaking our pockets. We booked our Boracay trip last March (this is during those promo period of Cebu Pacific and we got a good deal of course. Sweet! 🙂 ) and our trip is around November between low and “almost peak” season so accommodation around the place start to get expensive, there are a lot of guesthouses in Boracay you can choose from for a very reasonable price and if you are really on a tight budget. So we started checking other options for our accommodations, our budget for our accommodation is around 2,000php per day, guesthouses in this categories will fit on this budget. Luckily, I came across Boracay Best Deals for a very good deal, they have this low season promo which is good for 4person on a Standard Room in La Carmela de Boracay with 2 buffet breakfast pass per day. Isn’t awesome or what?
Comparing the price of our first choice accommodation which is around 2,000php per night and the inclusions of our stay. You can do the math but I would choose to book my stay at Boracay Best Deals.
But of course at first I was hesitant on taking the promo, so I did further checking and you can check their Facebook Account for proof 😀 😀 :D. Booking your accommodation thru Boracay Best Deal is the easiest thing I ever did. I just email them my preferred dates, feedback was fast. Once they have confirmed the dates and settled my payments the next thing I new is, they already provided me my voucher for our stay in La Carmela de Boracay. They are very commendable for their service, fast and efficient. Will I avail of their services on my next trip to Boracay? Definitely YES!
So for inquiries on their on going promo you can check their website of Facebook account.
So happy booking and til my next Boracay trip 😀 😀 😀
