miss independent said...

did you do this itinerary on your own or have you purchased a travel package? we want to go to batanes on a budget so we're thinking of doing our own itinerary and probably just rent a cheap van/jeepney so we can go around town. thanks.

Insider-Insights said...

hi miss independent, I got a travel package for our trip to Batanes coz I didn't have enough time last January to contact a van or a tour guide,I have also tried to research a good Iti for batanes before we go there I came up with the similar Iti. Batanes is a small island you can use my iti then you can have a DIY trip to save.

Simone said...

Hello there, Is it okay if I ask a detailed breakdown of your expenses for this itinerary you made. We are going to Batanes on September for 7 days, 6 nights. We're making it a DIY trip, to cut on cost. We're looking into adopting your itinerary. :)

If you could help us on the breakdwown and probably some contact persons, tour guide, van, jeepneys, then I will love you to bits. hehe.

Please please.

my email address is

Insider-Insights said...

Hi, I'll send you an email for the rates thanks..

Angku said...

Wow! us too! We are going there on September too! Can you also email me? Thanks a lot!

I am booking the Novita House for 6 people for 6D/5N, doing a separate booking for Batanes Resort for 3 people for 4D/3N and another separate booking for 4 other people at another homestay that is near Novita House but we are all on the same group. Di kasi magkasya sa iisang homestay lang.

Seems like your itinerary is awesome so we might adopt it too.


Please just email me at my work email:

Hello! Thank you for this post. I am planning to go to Batanes alone next summer probably. But I am not sure if its a good idea of going alone. Any advice perhaps?

Helo Ms. Insider,

Just to give additional must see places and could be included in Batanes Itinerary are the ff.

The Diura Fishing Village, Racuh a Idi (Old Settlement),The Fountain of Youth.

Nakamaya Burial Site - (Boat Shape Burial Marker),

Japanese Tunnel (Hide out),

Mahatao Tayid Lighthouse and best view of Hedgerows in Batan,

And even The Municipal park of Uyugan called (Motchong).

I think that would be included to make your Batanes trip/tour SULIT and COMPLETE...

Hi! I'd like to ask, do you think that a 3D2N would be too short then to visit Batanes and would it make a big difference if 4D3N instead? Thanks! -Angela
