An earthquake has happen near to Bohol a few hours ago.

Seems like this time is pretty bad and Bohol seems to have bear most of the burnt. Some centuries old churches have collapse.

Tourist and residents in the Visayas especially Bohol please stay safe.

First of all I wish to say that I am very sorry for the people in the Earthquake region.

My heart goes out to all the suffering and destruction. I live in California and we have experienced terrible earthquakes and I know how scary the afterhshocks and the destruction is... the suffering

My husband and I are supposed to arrive in Dumaguete and go on to Siquior on November 17 then back to Bohol and on to Camiguin and then on again flying out of Camiguin.

I do not know if this is a good idea now. Do you know anywhere where I could find information?

Free,

May i know what info do you need?

Tourist activities are business as usual in Bohol. The tour operators can even bring you to see the fault line.

It has even become a tourist attraction!

They have found alternate routes to the attractions. So no worries about it.

Thanks I was trying to figure out if you could still travel between the islands.

We were only going through Bohol to Camiguin

Not staying there and likewise going from Dumaguete to Siquior.

Not staying on Negros.

We donated to Earthquake relief.

Thanks for your help..

We want to spend time in Siguior and on Camiguin on this trip.

Not going to spend time on Bohol.

Not sure if we should do this or maybe go to the Cuyo Islands instead by ferry from Palawan?
