HOW TO GET THERE

HowToGetThere

From Manila, we traveled by plane to Dumaguete in one hour and 20 minutes via Philippine Airlines, whose planes fly to the city twice daily--8.40am and 1.20pm. A one-way ticket from Manila to Dumaguete is usually around Php 3,000. 

Travel tip: We booked our flights with Skiddoo, which offered us a cheap and easy way to book our flights online. That's right. The fastest growing online travel agency out of Australia is now in the Philippines! It’s the cheapest place for you to compare and book airfare.

If you find cheaper flights on another website, Skiddoo is ready to match that price. Just take a screenshot of the cheaper flight’s price, call+632 770-5380 and email the picture to contactus@skiddoo.com.ph so Skiddoo can verify it. Where else can you find travel agents online who would lower their price for you? For more info, just visit their website at https://www.skiddoo.com.ph/
