Do the Math on my Travel Expenses

A follow up on my blog DIY Travel Tips.. I am laying down all my expenses on my 3-day Cebu travel adventure. I, (ahem), got the guts to show this to... (ahmm) .. help(?!?) travelers stretch their moolahs when they've decided to travel (in Cebu, of course!) but I really (really, really) don't recommend you try this! (whew!) You can still stretch your budget up to.. half of what I've spent (geesh.. big spender!)

Okay.. Here it goes:

I really allotted a travel budget of php 6000 (in case of emergency.. you can never tell what's gonna happen!) Inclusive of fares, fees, accommodations, food, drinks, pasalubong. But I didn't intend to spend all (fingers crossed!)

Below are my personal expenses, Chinchan's not included... :)

Day 1: Gora sa Cebu and Cebu city tour

(we stayed at GranPrix Hotel - free accommodation c/o of ChinChan)

60.00 - breakfast of siopao, banana and 1 liter of water - c/o 711
100.00 - taxi from Cubao to NAIA Terminal 3 - without the traffic!
200.00 - terminal fee
65.00 - taxi from Mactan Intl Airport to Mactan Shrine       
105.00 - taxi from Mactan Shrine to SM City Cebu
62.00 - lunch at CnT - (chopsuey, lechon, rice and soda) may corkage fee pag nagdala ka ng sarili mong inumin.. duh!
50.00 - taxi to Roseate Pension Inn - along Urgelio st
494.00 - overnight stay to Roseate Pension Inn - deluxe- 2 single bed, with view (Crown Regency Hotel)
50.00 - taxi to Taoist Temple - we're supposed to try the habal-habal pero di panatag ang kalooban ko sumakay sa motorcycle!
55.00 - taxi to Fort San Pedro
30.00 - entrance fee at Fort San Pedro
80.00 - taxi to Larsian sa Fuente 
75.00 - dinner at Larsian - 6 isaw, 4 pork bbq, 7 puso + makapal na usok!
545.00 - pasalubong at Shamrock store - otap, dried mango, turones de mani, piyaya

Day 2: Trip to Moalboal, Cebu

(free breakfast from Roseate Pension Inn)

32.50 - taxi to South Cebu Bus Terminal
5.00 - terminal fee
112.00 - bus fare to Moalboal - aircon bus!
20.00 - chicharon Carcar
150.00 - tricycle fare - from drop off point to Panagsama to Orchid Garden to White Beach, mini tour na din!
10.00 - entrance fee at Orchid Garden - with caged birds at sangdamukal na unggoy
750.00 - overnight stay at HK Resort - na walang TV!
175.00 - lunch at HK Resort - beefstik with drinks, masarap naman kahit shala!
35.00 - bottled water
130.00 - souvenir shirt

Day 3: Kawasan Falls tour and Fly back na to Manila!

300.00 - tricycle fare to Kawasan Falls - arkilado si Manong eh! 
210.00 - entrance fee + bayad sa guide going to Kawasan falls
30.00 - breakfast at Moalboal carinderia - pusit, tortang talong, rice and water - walang free breakfast sa HK resort :(
107.00 - bus fare to Cebu city - ordinary bus na lang
40.00 - chicharon Carcar
32.00 - lunch at carinderia sa terminal
100.00 - taxi to Mactan Intl Airport
200.00 - terminal fee

then free shuttle na lang from NAIA terminal 3 to MRT, then FX at tricycle at bahay ko na! :)

So there.. yan ang aking mga expenses sa paglamyerda  ko sa Cebu! Magastos ba? Oo. Aminado naman ako. Pansin naman, puro taxi di ba? Pwede ba bumawi sa susunod? :)

Ang sa akin lang naman kung kaya ko naman gumastos, okay lang, basta masulit ko yung byahe. Material na bagay lang yan, madali ipunin, pero gamitin dapat ng wasto!         



  1. yup! I alloted that much (in case of emergency nga!) Pero much as possible 4k-5k lang talaga dapat magastos ko. Yung natirang 1k, work allowance ko na! :)


Gladly appreciate it if you will let me hear your thoughts! Thanks!
