Siquijor is the third smallest province in the Philippines and has a land area of just 343.5 kilometers. However, this small island has plenty of spectacular tourist destinations and awesome activities. The island’s main attractions are close to one another, and you can visit several in just one day!
However, the challenge for most tourists is how to get around the island if they have a limited budget. Here are a few tips on how to save money while traveling around Siquijor.
1. Rent a Motorbike
For people who know how to ride a motorbike, there are a few rental establishments on the island where you can rent a unit. This option is great if you are traveling alone or with your partner. Most motorbiker rentals also provide safety equipment such as helmets. However, the customer often pays for the gas.
2. Hire a Tricycle Driver for a Day
If you are traveling with a small group, the best way to explore the island province is by hiring a tricycle driver for the whole day. Most tricycle drivers who offer this kind of service often have a map of the most popular tourist spots on the island. Feel free to discuss your itinerary with them so you can start negotiating the price.
3. Get a Multi-Cab
This method is best for those traveling with a large group. One advantage of hiring a multi-cab is that it has ample space for your belongings. You can even reach out to multi-cab operators on social media to book one in advance before your trip.
4. Ride Public Transportation
If you know someone from Siquijor or are good at research, you can look for the schedules of jeepneys and multi-cabs in the town where you are going. While this option may be cheaper, you also have to consider that public transport hails passengers along the way, which can increase travel time.
5. Get a Tour Package
