The-Ultimate-Roadtrip: Dumaguete-Siquijor-Cebu-in-5-days
Going to 3 different islands with a limited amount of time may seem challenging, but when you schedule it right, you’ll manage to roadtrip around Cebu, Dumaguete and Siquijor in 5 days just like we did and you’ll even have spare time to wander around and just chill!

I wanted to go somewhere without having to buy an airline ticket Β but see so many places at the same time during my birthday week last September,which is why we decided to just go on a very random roadtrip. Coming from Bacolod City, Cebu, Dumaguete and Siquijor are super accessible and at the same time are a complete explosion of natural wonders! From turquoise waters, to breathtaking waterfalls, from mountain ranges to trendy cafes, and so much more! You’ll be able to see so much in just a little amount of time. Here’s how we did it and how you can too if you plan to go to these three places:

Aaaand that’s how you do it! I hope you found my blog useful and inspiring! If you wanted to know the total distance we had to drive, it was around 800KM, and yes it was a bit tiring, but it definitely was fun! We also spent less than 15,000 pesos for everything including the gas, food, and accommodations so it was really okay.

The-Ultimate-Roadtrip: Dumaguete-Siquijor-Cebu-in-5-daysIf I have any advice to leave you when it comes to doing a spontaneous roadtrip– its these:

1.)Download waze or google maps, it’s a lifesaver when you are going on a roadtrip!

2.)Research in advance– google ” best places to go in siquijor” or “where to eat in dumaguete” for advice from people who have already been there before.

3.) Bring mosquito repellent when visiting forest-y areas.

4.) Bring as much as you want if you have space in your car– you can bring a sleeping bag if you don’t want to spend on accommodation

5.) Have ample rest at night if you will be driving a lot.

6.) Don’t eat at the fancy restaurants if you want to save up.

7.) Wake up early when going to “Kawasan Falls” or any other touristy destinations to get a good picture and to avoid the crowds.

8.) Enjoy and bring a good camera to store the memories!!

9.) Leave a comment or share this blog post if you liked this article!! <3
