WHERE TO STAY AND CHEAP HOTEL IN JOLO,SULU:
There are a few hotels in Jolo, Sulu. One of these is Sulu Peacekeepers In located inside Camp Asturias. For an overnight stay, I paid 950 pesos for a single bed, with aircon, tv and toilet and bath. This is the safest place because it is being run by a cooperative owned by the peacekeepers (uniformed personel). 

HOW TO GET TO JOLO,SULU:
In my case, from Bongao, Tawi-Tawi, I took a ferry to Jolo, Sulu. However, Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines have their daily trips to Zamboanga City International Airport. Then, a ferry ride from Zamboanga City Port to Bongao (9 hours travel time). For schedule of trips, you can check Aleson Shipping Lines's facebook page.
