Disclaimer: We'll try to make it D.I.Y.
Since my barkada (a group of 5) was able to grab some great deals for Cebu-Bohol flights this coming August (yeah, imagine a P500-peso-roundtrip-fare from AirphilExpress), we are all pretty excited for our once-in-a-bluemoon stress free getaway. So, I must say that as early as now, we want to have our itinerary set. Hmmm.. I hope you guys could help (majority of us haven't been to Cebu and Bohol). Thanks a lot in advance.
I did my best (to do some intense research), but due to time constraints, I think my best wasn't good enough (ngeeks, parang kanta lang). Here's what I got:
Where To Stay:
Since I have the Enjoy Card, we can avail 30-60% off on hotels' published rates.
~I met the hotel manager when I attended TravelMart last year. She was able to give me her contact no. so everytime someone asks for a good hotel in Cebu, I recommend Be Resorts; not mentioning that they never fail to give me big discounts. Though I havent tried it myself, I already sent 2 groups to stay here and they said, they love the place. For more info, visit http://www.beresorts.com/
Crown Regency Hotel
~tallest hotel in the country as what they say; where you can enjoy the famous Edge Coaster and Skywalk too.
Where To Eat:
~galit-galit na pag di niyo ako pinakain dito!
~enjoy good food at affordable prices while watching the stunning view of Cebu's city lights

Panglao Island Nature Resort
~my friend keeps on bugging me that we need to stay in Panglao (I really dont have any idea why). I tried to check some rates and whew! sky-high rates bombarded my sight, P8500/night was really an eye soar! So, maybe we can find an alternative without being so splendid, right? I saw this post in Chyng Reyes' blog wherein they enjoyed a day tour in Panglao Island Nature Resort for Php350.00. Winner to the max!!!
