If Mui ne is now only 3 hours from sai Gon they must have improved the road a lot. Was supposed to be 5 hours (my friend taht lived in Sai Gon had been a few times). We met some Russians who were kitesurfing instructors heading to Mui Ne.

FF: I did not go to Ha Long bay because it was December. I FROZE my ass off in Hoi An and Hue which are several hundred clicks furtehr South.

@  freebiefan2 : (23 February 2017 - 09:17 AM)

halong the most overrated tourist crap i ever wasted money on... wait for boat.. boat goes same place as everyone else, get ogg boat, tour somewhere, wait wait... dont buy beeer from boat vendors... rules and go there go there... was crap....

@  freebiefan2 : (23 February 2017 - 09:16 AM)

Was in Miu Ne over chinese new year... excellent beach. Lots Russians in town. Even got a pinay to come from saigon for a few days fun. 3 hour bus ride from saigon

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:14 AM)

Ha Long Bay will be FREEZING cold still in March and likely foggy. Winter is NOT the time for the North and forget DAlat.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:13 AM)

Best beach of all I've heard is Mui Ne but was a huge ordeal to get up there. Vung Tau has most action of any beach I think but Nha Trang is probably best combo of beaches and bitches.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:12 AM)

FF: Absolutely agree. Phu Quoc is killer; I got a handjob on the beach from a fisherman's wife/massage lady even for just 100000 Dong (like $6). Made quite a mess of my shorts so had to wait until it dried up before geting up. Looked like I pissed myself LOL

@  freebiefan2 : (23 February 2017 - 09:06 AM)

Beaches, not benches... oops

@  freebiefan2 : (23 February 2017 - 09:06 AM)

I agree with your Ha Noi assessment.. however Saigon much closer to good benches , think Miu Ne and Phan Thiet not Vung Tau. And easier to get ot Phu Quoc too. Too many gap year wanna be hippies in Sai gon.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:01 AM)

Budhah: Please keep your fascist BS off the board so I can honor my pledge ok? The "thats just the way the Dems want it" comment is a provocation and violation of the law as laid down by Tangfu.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Ha Noi is NOT hellishly hot like Sai Gon and is MUCH more charming and less in your face.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 08:53 AM)

VERY cold and rainy in Camiguin. Only been 2 sunny days in all of 2017 (yesterday and the day before). We planned White Island for today but just too cold and winy.

@  Gillette : (23 February 2017 - 08:06 AM)

I guess it's summer time.

@  Gillette : (23 February 2017 - 08:05 AM)

Was cool and dry now hot as hell again.

Going to Philippines (Davao City) first time flying out of uk, my flight is 10pm on Monday from heathrow London and arrive in Malaysia KLIA at 5.35pm on the 9th an have a 14 hour layover then get to Manila at 12pm on the 10th, then my flight to Davao City is at 6.15pm an arrive there at 8pm.

I've asked a few people and looked on google and getting different answers, I want to be right what I'm doing.

I've had a transplant (kidney) 6 years ago, so I have medications with me (non liquid) I have a doctors note and prescription,

I have chocolate and sweets (candy) in my check in bag for my girls family.

Do I need to declare it at the airports? Most people say I don't need to declare it at Manila, but ill be going to Malaysia first so was wondering shall I declare it to make sure no problems occur?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

nope i wouldnt declare them. If you get a bag search (extremely low risk) then you have a doctors prescription.

Are they in checked baggage or carry on? And are you getting off in Malaysia or just passing through?

I would worry about Malaysia more than the PI, but since its in your checked the chances they will inspect is basically zero since it is just a holdover.

I don't remember if the PI customs forms ask about prescriptions. I would not sweat it if everything is legal

Is the least that will happen is they will just search it? And when I show the customs in Malaysia it's chocolate and candy they will let it ride?

There's nothing illegal unless paracetamol and anti diarrhea tablets that ain't on the prescription

I took about 5 different types of prescription drugs, including a pre-filled syringe wrapped up with some ice in drink bottles to keep it cool and wrapped in some face wash towels then plastic to keep it from wetting everything else in my carry-on. I declared it, got questioned at nearly every post and each time told to go on my way.

I also have a letter from my doctor stating what medications I use. It has never been looked at in three journeys, about 8 international flights, but its still good to have IMHO.

They usually look at me a little when going through customs in Australia on my way out due to carrying the ice bottles as they don't like you taking fluids onto the planes, but after a brief conversation they're OK with it.

The reason I used drink bottles filled with ice as opposed to using some ice packs is as it melts you can have a cool drink plus you don't have to worry about carrying ice packs with you for the rest of the trip once you've had the injection or found a refrigerator to put it in. Just toss the bottles away ...

No harm in declaring anything if its legit medication!

Don't worry about corruption too much, Davao is the safest city in the Philippines.

If you get chance go to Samal Island for 2-3 days with your girl (Pearl Farm if you can afford it, though Paradise & Blue Jazz are nice as well)

Yeah it being Davao city an heard good safety things about it that's 1 of the main reasons that keeps me comfortable, can't afford pearl farm but I think I can go for day trips right? An there is a place around there that was cheaper for me an we planned to stay over

Somebody said that pearl farm was closed for refurb not long ago anyway... They did offer day trips for 1500...

As he mentioned above, Blue Jazz - great for day trips, ride there boat direct to resort, though if you hire a car & driver for the day, get him to take you to hagimit falls for a refreshing swim, then back to Blue Jazz for a meal, waterslides, beach..

For an action packed day in Davao go white water rafting, at the same location go to crocodile park in the afternoon, then next door see the native village display & firedancing show.. then not far from there they have a wild game restaurant if your keen to eat crocodile & other animals.

Also there is Emars Wave Pool, Zip line, outdoor shooting range, wake boarding park, for a decent feed go abreeza mall.

Within walking distance of victory plaza mall there is a nightclub complex with Superclub disco at the front, at the back there is a live band venue where the cool kids appear to hangout, & a comedy show, though they are lady boys there quite funny - get your girl to bring her male friends (safety in numbers)

Hotels in Davao city I recommend Red Knight Gardens, though for a much better location there is Ponce Suites - walking distance to 24hr McDonald's, abreeza mall, Victoria plaza...

If you need some female company of a day time - you can get one from the "Square circle", take a taxi, see the guard at front, he will usher some girls out for you to choose.. you'll pay around 600 for a massage, negotiate for everything else.at the back is some discreet hotel rooms.

For the mongers reading - you could just stay at that hotel permanently & you only have to walk 10 metres each day to get a new girl... It is a girly bar of a night time but the prices are questionable 300p lady drink.. its the same girls available for massage anyway.

Well the form they give you on the plane supposed to ask if you have food I think that's why I'm asking about chocolate and sweets.

When my carry on goes through X-rays they should see my medication so then if its not declared they might think its drugs and cause a scene until I show the doctors note an prescription,

What normally has the smaller line? Declare or nothing to declare

Coming back into Aus I thought I was smart by declaring a little wooden souvenir & going through the short line with a quick check no xray, so I did that a few times.
Last trip I forgot, but lucky me the customs lady sorting the line this time veered me off through the door without any xray or check, &. with the computers they use now than scan your eyes I was out the airport in minutes.. Almost felt like I was gonna get rolled by the feds before making it out the airport... Or I guess I didn't meet there terrorist or drug dealer profile for that day..

Never had a problem with sweets of chocolate and had a prescription when traveling with pills. Don't worry.

As it is your first time out of the UK, 14 hours in KL :Bored:, you are aware that your flight to Davao maybe from a different terminal than the one you arrive in.

Yeah been in heathrow since 6am today my flight is at 10pm to Kuala Lumpur and when put the case on I didn't say anything about chocolates, although when went through security I said I have medication but I have a note he said are they liquid and I said no then he let me go.
