I'm not really sure but I don't think you can. People there are trained to home-stay guests and they also have these small huts that you may rent overnight, which forfeits the purpose if they let you pitch your rent. Hope... More

Top Asian destinations: congrats. Palawan and Panay Island (0 Replies)
TA advises that for 2017, Palawan is ranked 22nd best destination in Asia and 'Panay Island' (which largely by TA visitor interest would mean 'Boracay Island') is ranked 23rd. Given Philippines' relatively low profile compared to Bali, Indonesia and Phuket, Thailand, this is another excellent achievement for Philippines. Gradually, the word is getting out, with the number of foreign travellers increasing every year for the last few. Separately, domestic visitors have skyrocketed...More

Malalison Island overnight tour (0 Replies)
Boracay Island may be Asia's '24/7 party island' as the innovative Filipino Department of Tourism promotes it but for nature lovers there is plenty to do.
