This week we travel to Sipalay. What an amazing place! Find all information down below :D –FOLLOW– ►Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/travelgretl ►Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/travelgretl/ –HOW TO GET TO SIPALAY– Take the direct bus from Bacolod (about 5 hours) to Sipalay town. Or a minivan (p350). Minivan is a bit faster than the big bus, but since it might take a longer time to leave and you’re more cramped inside, I am not sure what the best option would be. I like the big bus better ;) From Dumaguete: take a bus to Bayawan, Hinoba-an. It will cost you 6 to 7 hours. It will cost you just over 200 pesos with public transport (p120 + p75 + p35). If you hire a van it would be 5000 in total, which is not worth it if you are a solo traveler like me ;) If you stay in Dauin, no need to go to the busstop in town. It’ll pass by the resort. Unless you want to be certain to be seated ;) And it might seem complicated (as a foreigner) to go from bus to bus, but people are very helpful along the way and if you leave one bus, the next one will be already there! No worries. It’s just a day you lose on traveling. But it’s worth it ;) –WHAT TO SEE IN SIPALAY– I did two tours. ► One was to Danjugan island (next video). ► The other tour was a tour to the highlights of the main land. p1000 for half a day or p1500 for a day trip. It’s a trycicle trip, so again, make friends and you’ll split the costs. You need to pay entrance fees along the way (from 30 pesos to 80 pesos according to the place) and lunch is not included. What I saw was 2 resorts (including perth resort, with the infinity pool) – the cave which is really cool! (100 pesos for the guide with light, I gave him 150 since it was quite a hike). You can arrange this tour with Roland Dequina – rolandtours.wordpress.com or 09489358749 Tell him you found him through this video! Not because he’ll charge a fee for me ;) Just because it’s nice to know how people find out about you  And I am curious for that as well! I believe you can also get into a kano, more island hopping, archery…. There is a whole lot more to explore but I’ll leave that to you! –WHERE TO SLEEP IN SIPALAY– I would highly recommend Takatuka Lodge! Love the place! Inspired on Pippi Longstocking’s tale, with a lot of weird rooms all over the place. Different themes like the cave room, superstar, rockadilly, a castle… you name it ;) It’s seriously the best hotel I’ve been in in the Philippines (and I have been to a lot I love ;) – It’s so funky and unique, the owners and staff are friendly and helpful, the food is great, they attract friendly guests, the beach is just there. AMAZING! Seriously. Go here. GO! What are you waiting for? ;) ► Find Takatuka here: https://goo.gl/gAw3is –WHERE TO EAT IN SIPALAY– Because I stayed on Sugar Beach, there’s not much options to get out for dinner. You can’t just leave and get back after dark  I stayed at Takatuka mainly for food, and it’s good! Not cheap but a whole lot of variety, and great healthy stuff. –EQUIPMENT I USE— ►Camera | Panasonic GH5: http://amzn.to/2EZZE9a ►Camera | Sony RX100 MK IV: http://amzn.to/2omd8Tg ►Camera | Go Pro Hero 4 Silver: http://amzn.to/2ELzfwu ►Lens | Panasonic 12 to 35 mm: http://amzn.to/2sPYQyM ►Microphone | Sennheiser: http://amzn.to/2CEj6Db ►Light | Aladdin: http://amzn.to/2HCtgYB ►Stabilizer | Osmo Mobile: http://amzn.to/2GErjcQ ►Tripod | Joby Gorillapod: http://amzn.to/2GHexdH ►Editing software | Premiere CC: https://goo.gl/QtrRTQ ►Computer | MacBook Pro: http://amzn.to/2oqZlKg The music I use is from Artlist.io: https://goo.gl/hM29Pe All mentioned links in this descriptionbox might be affiliated.
