While I like a few more amenities, this is a nice video for the budget traveler

Nice vid, but I thought many of the prices they paid were grossly inflated, starting with $20 for a sim card?

Yeh, i noticed that.
Just checked, the free SIM is still being advertised as available at Mactan,? no credit just SIM.

Otherwise a very well done video and informative. As for prices, dunno, haven't been out and about for a while.

We also have to consider the source. While these are seasoned 'backpack' travelers it takes some time in any area/country to get the lay of the land. Also, prices can seem very cheap when coming here if your prices for the same thing are more expensive. It's all in perspective.

Ofcourse I am an old fart and did backpacking in 70s. My address was GPO Bangkok. Worked well.

Seems like they grossly overpaid for accommodations in El Nido.

Eating local foods can save you a bundle. ?️?
