    How cool that you got to see so much of the Philippines. Although I’ve been this close to traveling there for work over the years, it never quite fell into place. But man, oh man, my Filipino co-workers have the most GORGEOUS photos of the islands and beaches of their homeland!

      The Philippines is definitely up there on my “favorite countries” list! I truly hope you’re able to go sometime and experience it!

    Great story about Cebu Pacific, cant say I ever heard of them but I will keep them in mind. I would love to see the Philippines. Have to say got pulled into your post about having to stay in Manila to get issued an emergency passport from the U.S. embassy. Pretty crazy but I guess it happens.

    • messybuntraveler says:

      Yes! That incident was a nightmare! I had no idea about the “six-month validity” rule until we tried to leave the Philippines. I had to learn the hard way I guess.

    I havent been fortunate enough to travel to the Philippines, therefore havent flown with Cebu. It is good to know that your passport has to be valid for 6 months after entering the Philippines. This is something that a lot of countries require and travellers dont realize.

      Agreed! I honestly had no idea until I tried to leave the Philippines, as my passport was valid when we left LA but surpassed the six-month mark during the three weeks we were there. Thankfully we were in the only city in the entire country that had a U.S. Embassy and I was able to receive a limited-validity passport.

    Going to the Philippines is one of my dreams (especially snorkelling there) I knew that some countries require that the traveller’s passport is valid 6 months after the date of their return. I found out the hard way! I missed a trip because of that, so now I also double-check the validity of my passport when I am travelling outside the EU.

  5. When I hear “Don’t expect any […] extensive legroom.”, my alarm goes off as I am fairly tall and I have been on flights with almost no legroom before . Those were no fun…and painful. Luckily, I believe flight times within the Philippines are not too bad. What was your longest flight in the Philippines?
