Tori's Backpackers Paradise, Siquijor

Tori's Backpackers Paradise
Tori's Backpackers Paradise is the cheapest place to stay in Siquijor. At their small reception area, the receptionist greeted with the genuine "Good Morning, Sir!" and a smile. That very moment, I thought that this place is perfect. For an overnight stay, I only paid 350 pesos, great deal, right? This resort is backpackers friendly because of its cheap price and they have a dormitory type room where visitors can meet other visitors. I was just sad because my visit was off season and there were only three visitors in the resort. If you want privacy, that's not a problem because they also private rooms.

Rates, Budget Friendly and Affordable Place to Stay

HOW TO GET HERE: From Manila, you can either take a flight to Dumaguete, Negros Oriental or Tagbilaran, Bohol. I highly recommend Manila to Dumaguete Airport because it's cheaper and accessible. From Dumaguete Airport, take a tricycle to Dumaguete Port. Then, a fastcraft ferry to Siquijor. If in Tagbilaran, you need to ride on the shuttle to Island City Mall (ICM) then charter a trike to the port. Ride a ferry to Siquijor Port. At the port, you can take a motorcycle or a tricycle.

The main tourist spots and destinations in the province of Siquijor are accessible via a habal-habal. At Valencia jeepney terminal, I met Kuya Leo, a habal-habal driver who brought me to these stunning places. You can contact him on Ph: 09354434400.
