Coron Town might seem like a small sleepy province village to you but you would be surprised how much there is to do… When you first arrive in Coron and settle into your hotel or backpackers, it’s a good idea to explore the town before you start any island-hopping tours or excursions. One thing you learn in the Philippines… No matter where you go, there is always traffic! And Coron Town was no exception… There is no SM, Robinson or mall as such to head for in the town proper but there are food shops around town and a market near Lualhati park and the harbor. This is where we picked up some aqua-shoes and a waterproof carry bag.
For most people, the thought of saving thousands of dollars to travel the world is an unreachable task. While there are many ways to save money, for some, there’s no amount of budgeting that will help them save enough. Reading articles on how people saved some crazy amount for travel can just be depressing. “I could never do that,” you say. “Sure, those people saved tens of thousands making minimum wage, but I can’t even afford food.” All those articles on travel blogs, Elite Daily and Buzzfeed are far too unrealistic. I admit I’m guilty of this too.
