Knowing your expenses in advance gives you a lot of advantage. For me, after paying for the airfare and the 50% accommodation expenses, I divided the balance amount into 50 days till our trip. I only need to save TWD200/day to cover the remaining expenses! Not bad. I also told fellow travellers to save some money so they can have their own to spend while in Bohol.

Here's hoping for a stress-free Bohol adventure!
