CULION: SAMPLE ITINERARY AND BUDGET

Culion is still under the radar as it is overshadowed by its more famous neighbor, Coron. Some of the attractions shared by these two towns are closer to Culion but can be much more expensive compared to when you take the day tours from Coron. If you decide to go to Culion and explore the town more, here is an itinerary for a two nights’ stay.

But before that, this itinerary assumes that:

  • You’re traveling with at least one person, sharing expenses.
  • Your accommodation budget is around P1200 per night; split with another person so prepare to spend at least P600 per night.
  • You’re traveling from Coron and going by a passenger boat to Culion on the day you arrive.
  • You’ll pay the standard prices for tours. You can bargain, but if you have the budget, don’t. Culion isn’t a famous destination, so you’ll be helping the local economy if you don’t haggle.
