Cebu X Bohol September 2017: Pre-flight Preparation

By Local Unnie

“Should I go somewhere?” or “Should I rather stay in Korea to save up?”

The dilemma to leave or to not leave began as I found out that a lot of my colleagues filed for a vacation leave during Chuseok (similar to Thanks giving season of Western). Answer was already given as I had a dilemma on my mind. “I decided to leave.”

But where?

Due to the long holiday, ticket price doubled. It was difficult for me to look for a cheap flight ticket and the least expensive one that I found was a ticket going to Cebu. It might be a bit expensive than the usual but considering that I am leaving on the peak season it was not bad.

Booked the flight.


Plane Ticket: KRW 503,500 (about USD 446), Philippine Airlines for 1 person

Booked the hotel


Waterfront Airtport Hotel & Casino, Mactan


The Bellevue Resort, Bohol

Since I was traveling from Cebu to Bohol and out at Cebu, I booked three hotels mentioned above.

  • Waterfront Airtport Hotel & Casino, Mactan (Sept. 28 ~ 29) KRW 227,021 (PHP 12,300/USD 246)
  • The Bellevuew Resort, Bohol (Sept. 29 ~ Oct. 1) KRW 764,368 (PHP 34,400/USD 677)
