  1. Hi! I want to ask where did you hire van from Badian to Oslob? And how much does it cost? Thanks! ;)

  2. Hi Janel, we have our contact from Cebu City who is based on Moalboal so he agreed to bring us from Badian to Oslob. HIs name is Kuya Ruel, 093304449149

  3. Did you make an advance reservation for whale shark watching and the rest of the place you stayed? Thanks.

    1. Hi, Crz. Yes, we did since we were a big group. With whale shark watching, we are advocating to skip it, there are other attraction in Oslob that you can see, and if you skip the whale shark , you wouldn't missed that much. Please see our post about Whale shark in Oslob.

  4. Hi may contact number ka po sa bbs hideaway sa dalaguete? We are planning to go there kasi. Thanks
