Moving on from moalboal


We are spending 5 days in Moalboal in February (for a diving course and Kawasan falls) and then we have a further 9 days to play with before returning to mactan airport for our flight home.

However, for the 9 days I can’t decide whether to travel east to Bohol (which looks incredible) or travel/fly west to Palawan

I understand 2 very different choices and I was wondering if I could even fit both in. My original plan was to do a loop Moalboal - Bohol - Siquijor - Palawan - Boracay but now I think that’s just too much travelling and not enough time in each place.

So what would be your opinion? Bohol or Palawan or both?

You could fit one place in Palawan (El Nido or Coron) and Bohol (Alona Beach) It is slightly rushed but doable.

Save time by getting direct flights to either El Nido or Coron from Cebu.

You can fast track getting from Oslob to Bohol(1.5 hours) << https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ShowTopic-g29… >>>

I agree with what Tommo has said above - 1 destination in Palawan + Bohol is feasible. Or you could spend the 9 days in Palawan. Or you could visit both Bohol & Siquijor.

If you want to continue diving I would think about just spending your remaining time in the Visayas, as you can travel around there without flying. You could dive at very highly regarded dive sites in Dauin & Apo Island (Negros/Dumagutte), and Balicasag (Bohol/Alona Beach)
