  1. John. FYI. tiger Philippines haveing agood promo sale for flights from NAIA to Phukett thailand for Php 1000 r/t all in. Good for travel up to Mar 29, 2014 but need to book before Oct 11, 2013. Thats as cheap as you will ever find and Phukett has some cheap places to stay.

    1. That’s a dang good price Don. Thanks for the info. I doubt we will be taking advantage though because we will be saving our money for a trip to Texas in April, if the whole US is not in a revolt. I’ll start checking all the Tiger Air flights along with the Cebu Pacific flights though. I usually check 2 or 3 times per month or when I get a promo from Cebu Pacific in my e-mail. We have never been to Thailand and would like to at least once to see what it is like. It’s probably not that much different than the Philippines, but I’d like to see for myself.

      1. Thailand is similar to Philippines in terms of weather and beaches, but I do think Thai food is much better, epecially if you like spicy.

        Hope you get to travel a bit more at some point.

        1. I think we will start doing our trips next year, starting with the one to Texas. We hope to visit another Philippine city also next year. I’m thinking Iloilo right now, but who knows what will come up.

  2. John,Good post,boy you were on a slow boat,last time we drove to Samar
    the crossing from Matnog to Allen was one hour.Some thing you might think about on next trip out of the PI is go to Bangkok as it was a little cheaper and while there you could purchase medicine there much cheaper than in the PI,I used to do that when I was living in Subic.
    Next time you need a ticket you should check with Amega travel they are in the lobby of the Horizonhill hotel,we used them many times and we got some good prices,Aurora and Maita are real nice and will get you the best price.

    1. I know it was a slow boat Wayne. I think a ferry that left after us, past us. I’ll check on those Bangkok flights, but probably our next time out will be to Texas, in April. You also stayed at the Horizonhill Hotel? What do you think about the hotel? I’ll ask about their prices, but I know when I’m paying attention I can get a pretty sweet deal with Cebu Pacific online.

      1. We checked out the Horizonhill but we liked the Hana hotel,it is about a block away,also there is a good place to eat about another block going past the petron gas station, great food and much cheaper than hotels.We have used Amega travel for years, real good service.If anyone ever needs help with visa paper work or anything else like that,have them get in touch with Amega travel.

        1. Yes there are a few good places to eat in that area, you just have to know which ones. I talked with a few people that were there a lot and even a couple of guys that still live there.
          I didn’t even know Amega Travel was anymore than just that one inside the Horizonhill. I did talk with them about my Visa problems though. They didn’t know a way around my problem though, so I didn’t ask them much after that.

  3. Hi UJ – Thanks for a very informative post; I may just do this route when I become a Balikbayan Citizen.

    1. Howdy Leona. That’s for checking out my blog. It’s always good to have new people commenting. I don’t know for sure that the Clark to Hong Kong route will always be that much cheaper, but it sure surprised me that it was at all. I checked it 3 times because I was in disbelief. I am always looking for sales via Cebu Pacific and if you catch them right, they can really save you some money. Of course if we could catch a Space A flight it would save a bunch more money.
      I hope you hang around and I will be able to put something else in here that will help you out. Please if you like what you read, let others know. I don’t mind having 1000’s or even millions of readers everyday.
      Thanks again for reading and thanks especially for commenting.
