菲律賓自由行│菲律賓公主港、愛尼島9日│行程路線、交通、住宿│Phillipines│El Nido & Puerto Princesa

2018邁入2019之際,你去哪裡跨年? 如果你希望在12月底逃離臺北的濕冷,可以考慮跟我們一樣,前往溫暖的南陽島嶼!Wanna bathing in sunlight? Come to southeast Asia and get some tropical sun-kissed tanning! In December 2018, I decided that I want to embrace 2019 with sunshine, so I went to Philippines with my friend to escape rainy cloudy Taipei and spent 9 days in El Nido and Puerto Princesa.

 路線:
公主港3日 – 愛尼島離島3日 – 愛尼島本島3日

Itinerary:
3 days in Puerto Princesa – 3 days in El Nido/ a remote island – 3 days in El Nido main island

(I heard people say party scenes in El Nido is better for New Year’s Eve. I was in Puerto Princesa, it wasn’t very impressive or I didn’t go to the right bars.) 

交通:
Transportations:

  1. 國際航班:臺北 – 馬尼拉 – 公主港;回程同路線反過來。
    From Taipei (TPE) to Manila (MNL) to Puerto Princesa (PPS), and same way back.

    來回都是Air Asia,台幣18083含來回行李20kg。
    事後證明如果你可以travel light,夏天的衣服裝後背包8-9kg綽綽有餘,可以不用買行李。
    中轉馬尼拉,被告知去程必須把行李領出來,再check-in一次,回程不用。有人知道為什麼嗎?求分享 :)We flew Air Asia, USD 600 for the round trip, 20kg baggage allowance included.
    But if you can travel light, which is easy in summer, everything can fit in my backpack (8-9kg), then it’s not necessary to buy baggage. If you can get a ticket flying from El Nido straight to Manila, that would save you time!

    菲國境內交通:公主港 – 愛尼島;私人包車、共乘小巴、或用飛的!
    Inland transportations: private car charter or shared mini-van, or even better, you fly there.   

    ***如果有辦法提前訂到AirSwift航空直接飛到愛尼島的機票,請訂,別遲疑。
    ***If you are lucky enough to get tickets from AirSwift, please, just book that flight.


    1)去程:公主港 – 愛尼島這趟,是專屬六人座轎車,從公主港機場附近,到愛尼島市區 Corong-Corong,僅我和友人倆人搭,舒適寬敞。由於是透過下榻飯店預定的,很可惜不知道是哪一間的接送服務。

        時間:約4.5小時。/ 價格:每車 PHP 6000 (約台幣3600)。From Puerto Princesa (near airport) to El Nido (Corong-Corong):
    4.5 hrs by a private car charter/ Price: PHP 6000 (about USD 120) per carArranged by the hotel, so we don’t know which charter company it is. The car arrived a bit late (prepare yourself for the “time zone” here, it’s 5-15 mins late for almost everything.) The ride was very pleasant, the driver speaks good english and easy to communicate with. Max capacity: 6 people.


    2) 回程:愛尼島市區 Corong-Corong – 公主港PPS機場,是專屬的12人座箱型車,也是一樣只有我跟我朋友倆人而已。比去的時候便宜,還更寬敞。是跟kkday預訂的。大推。

        時間:約5小時。/價格:每車 TWD 3010。From El Nido (Corong-Corong) to Puerto Princesa PPS airport :
    5 hrs by private mini-van charter/ Price: USD 101 per vanLearning from the former experience, I booked the ride back to PPS airport 3 days ago from a website. Advantage: cheaper price with much more space. Disadvantage: Nothing if you also want to grab a bite on the way. But we wanted to be at the airport ASAP and the driver wanted to stop for lunch, so we waited for him for 20 mins. Max capacity: 12 people. Booked it from kkday.

    關於這兩地的境內交通,真心建議訂個私人包車,可以避免假期間為了安排公主港-愛尼島的來回交通而心力憔悴,事件是:我們在抵達公主港飯店的第一天,請飯店櫃檯幫我們預訂共乘箱型車的座位,飯店櫃檯說沒問題,通常是出發前一天他們跟接送的公司聯繫就可以。

    但是在我們出發的前一天,我與好友正打算悠哉地到飯店泳池曬曬太陽,結果飯店跟我朋友說:沒有位子了。女性友人聽到一驚,因為接下來在愛尼島的住宿是無法取消退款的,我們知道往愛尼島的機票早就售罄,於是她冷靜的問櫃檯還有什麼辦法,櫃檯聯絡後跟她說,最早的私人專車要早上十點。


    Best way to travel between Puerto Princesa – El Nido?Recommendation:  continental flights > private car charter (4-12 seats)> a seat in a shared van (12 ppl)

    Better to arrange it at least 36-48 hours before if it’s on New Year’s Eve or other national holidays. It took us some time to sort it out within 24 hrs. The hotel staff told us that it’s ok to book charter service from them 1 day prior, but by then the response was that it was all booked and no service available.


    在這,行程中極可能遇到意料之外的事情,一切就既來之則安之吧!
    Things might not go as you planned here, but, just winging it!


    因為隔日在愛尼島「離島」的住宿,需要配合船班,如果我們無法在下午兩點前抵達愛尼島的接駁處,就要自己再找路、花錢從市區到碼頭、從碼頭到離島的住宿。由於島上許多的不確定因素,這已不是花錢就可省時間了,是花了錢、還要精力和時間,如班次突然取消、誤點、各種不照計劃走的驚喜…等等。


    飯店協調了半天,真的是半天,才找到一個可以提早出發的私人包車服務。當然,在等待的期間,我們半天的行程就是坐在泳池邊焦急著,因為網路上可以找到的替代服務就是kkday,但 kkday 無法前一天預訂,要至少提前兩天。加上看到kkday私人包車的評價很好,所以當天我們就當機立斷,先把六天後的回程私人包車在 kkday 上訂好,而且還是12人座,還比飯店定的6人座小客車便宜,是不是太棒了!(真的,真心建議記得先把公主港 – 愛尼島訂好,在國外還要花時間安排真的是很費神又費時。加上網路又不是很穩定。)Because we had to arrive at the certain pickup point in El Nido before certain time, or we would miss the ferry and had to wait till the next day. So it did took us a half day by the pool, trying to figure out the pickup, with slow internet. Really not the best way to spend a sunny day, and the website I found does not take any order withing 24 hours, so try to arrange it a bit earlier if possible.

    (愛尼島的自由行旅客是歐/美/澳洲人遠多於體型嬌小的亞洲人,加上天氣熱,大家擠在一起怕不小心體味尷尬,所以怕擁擠的我們就直接決定是私人包車了。)The most common way to commute between Puerto Princesa – El Nido is by mini-van. Usually 11-13 people in one van.下圖是往返愛尼島和公主港的主要交通工具:迷你小巴

缺點/disadvantages:

Wifi連不上,飯店的人叫我一直重試,但還是沒能連上。後來參加day tour,問了兩、三個人,大家在不同的飯店也都有一樣的問題,所以記得先把sim卡買好!Very poor wifi (or no wifi), I failed to connect to it during my 3-day stay. Many people from different hotels told me they had the same problem. Remember to buy your local sim card at MNL airport. (SMART sim has quite good signal. you will see the sales point at Manila once you exit MNL airport for your transit flight, the other brand called GLOBE is available too.)

They really took good care of us. I went there with my female friend and we laughed when we saw the heart-shaped rose arrangement on the bed.

1) Aetas Glamping會接送客人到市區,用他們很有當地特色的小車;

Great for romantic getaway. All the guests are couples except me and my friend.

缺點/ disadvantage:

1)以當地物價來說,房價偏高,但值得; 2) 太舒服了,會不想出門。
Fairly speaking, the room rate is expensive compare to other hotels, especially we paid double during new year holidays. But we love Aetas so much still and I think you will love it too!
