-- I recommend taking the early morning bus to Southern Cebu, to avoid traffic in Cebu City.
-- Take the ordinary bus when you are traveling from town to town.
-- Tricycles or local transports within the towns have a minimum fare of PhP7 or PhP8.
I would like express my heartfelt thanks to Boljoon's Tourism Officer, Sir Ronald Villanueva and his family for accommodating me in their house during my stay in Boljoon (Day 1).
