  • Day 1: A Firefly Boat Cruise & the Island’s Most Popular White-Sand Beach

    Stop At: Bohol Island, Bohol Island, Bohol Province, Visayas
    When traveling from abroad to the Philippines, Manila is usually most tourists’ first point of arrival. It is recommended that you avoid the capital altogether and instead simply use its airport as a layover en route to the island of Bohol. Upon arrival to the island’s capital, Tagbilaran, we would take a 45-minute drive to the settlement of Panglao. This is our base from which to explore the island and where our lodge is located. We will be hanging out at Alona beach. About 1,500 meters (1,640 yards) long and lined with palm trees, resorts and shops, the white-sandy Alona beach is popular both day and night.
    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Abatan River, Cortes Philippines
    Your tour with us today starts officially at 5:15pm. Please be in the lobby at this time, as your tour guide and driver should be waiting for you there. We are taken via a 45-minute drive to the Abatan River Community Life Tour, where we go on a firefly boat cruise. Probably you have never seen something like this before. The tour starts shortly after arrival and lasts up to 3 hours. We should be back at 8:30pm.
    Duration: 3 hours

    No meals included on this day.
    Accommodation included: Hotel Room Bookings & Upgrades Offered After Tour Has Been Purchased

    Day 2: Chocolate Hills, a Tarsier Sanctuary & a River Cruise

    Stop At: Bohol Island, Bohol Island, Bohol Province, Visayas
    We are exploring Bohol Island. Specifically, we see Loboc River (for a cruise), Tarsier Sanctuary, Chocolate Hills, Habitat Butterflies Conservation Center, Bilar Man-Made Forest and Baclayon Church.

    The highlights are Loboc River, Tarsier Sanctuary and Chocolate Hills. Chocolate Hills’ unique and mound-shaped formations are Bohol’s most popular attraction. During the dry season, the grass-covered hills turn chocolate brown in color. This transforms the area into seemingly endless rows of chocolate kisses. Another highlight is a visit to a sanctuary to see endangered tarsiers. These primates can only be found on a few islands throughout Southeast Asia. Not least is a boat cruise along the Loboc River. Lunch is included in this boat cruise tour.
    Duration: 8 hours

    Meals included:
    • Lunch
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 3: The Region's 2 Best Waterfalls

    Stop At: Dumaguete City, Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, Negros Island, Visayas
    We are taking a 2-hour boat ride from Tagbilaran to Dumaguete, a town best used as a base from which to explore the area. The first stop on today’s tour is Casaroro Falls, which is about a 30-minute drive away. Have ready your swimming attire and a towel. The next stop is Pulangbato Falls, which is about a 45-minute drive away. The drive back to Dumaguete takes about 35 minutes. We should be back around 5:30pm.
    Duration: 5 hours

    No meals included on this day.
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 4: Huge Sea Turtles off Apo Island

    Stop At: Apo Island, Apo Island, Negros Oriental, Negros Island, Visayas
    We are making a daytrip via a one-hour drive to the port in Malatapay followed by a 30-minute boat ride to Apo Island. Big-eyed jacks, bump-head parrotfish, and sea snakes inhabit the reefs of the island. Nevertheless, the highlight for most tourists are the sea turtles. They get so close to swimmers and are pretty big.
    Duration: 5 hours

    Meals included:
    • Lunch
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 5: Swimming with Whale Sharks, Climbing Aguinid Falls & Canyoneering at Kawasan Falls

    Stop At: Oslob, Oslob, Cebu Island, Visayas
    Today will be a long but exciting day nonetheless. From Dumaguete, we are taking a 1.5-hour boat ride to Oslob. After the one-hour swim with the whale sharks, we will take a one-hour drive to Aguinid Falls. This is a great place for climbing waterfalls (with a helmet and ropes, of course!). Last but definitely not least, from Aguinid Falls we take a one-hour drive to Kawasan Falls. There we have lunch, which is included on today's tour. Kawasan Falls is a destination popular specifically for canyoneering. After that thrilling four-hour tour, we take a two-hour drive to Cebu City. We sleep at a hotel near the airport.
    Duration: 6 hours

    Meals included:
    • Lunch
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 6: Exploring the Philippines' Showcase Destination, Boracay Island

    Stop At: Boracay, Boracay, Malay, Aklan Province, Panay Island, Visayas
    We relocate from Cebu City to Boracay Island via a quick flight followed by a 15-minute boat ride. Attractions for today include Bulabog Beach, Puka Beach and Ilig Iligan Beach as well as walking to the top of Mount Luho. Bring swimming attire, a towel and a change of clothes. The day ends with walking along a footpath which runs around the headland and connects White Beach with romantic Diniwid Beach. This is a great place for both bridal shoots and watching the sunset.

    Boracay may be a small island but it is huge in its offering of a variety of activities: swimming in pristine clear water, strolling along the sugary white-sanded beach, enjoying the nightlife, making choices on restaurants featuring multiethnic foods and much more. In 2012, Boracay was named the best island in the world from the international travel magazine Travel + Leisure.
    Duration: 5 hours

    No meals included on this day.
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 7: A 'Free' Day in Boracay

    Stop At: Boracay, Boracay, Malay, Aklan Province, Panay Island, Visayas
    Today is a ‘free day’, meaning without any guided tour. What should you do today? Some tourists visit the waterfalls at Hacienda Maria, Sapsapon Cave and/or a plantation where you could watch a coconut (a.k.a. lambanog) winemaking demonstration. Some tourists bathe in Kawa’s Hot Pot Jacuzzi. We discourage all those activities. We think you are better off windsurfing, kite-boarding, parasailing, paragliding, jet skiing and/or riding an ATV around the island. We also discourage you from making the shared boat daytrip tour which covers the surrounding islands as well as the place where cliff diving is done. That boat daytrip tour is arguably a letdown.
    Duration: 8 hours

    No meals included on this day.
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 8: Arriving in El Nido & Sunset at Las Cabanas Beach

    Stop At: El Nido, El Nido, Palawan Island, Palawan Province, Mimaropa
    We relocate via a quick flight from Boracay Island to a beach town called El Nido. Today we spend our time in El Nido specifically at Las Cabanas beach. It is a perfect place to eat dinner on the beach and watch the sunset.
    As a natural attraction in its own right, the quiet beach town of El Nido is also a great base from which to explore the surrounding marble cliffs, enchanting lagoons, beaches, lush jungle, mangrove forest, prehistoric caves, and waterfalls. Dotted with islands and islets, most of which are inhabited, Bacuit Bay is home to blue waters and lots of marine life such as dugongs, turtles, manta rays, species of fishes, coral reefs and the occasional whale sharks.
    Duration: 6 hours

    No meals included on this day.
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 9: Boat Excursion to Snake Island, Pinagbuyutan Island, Entalula Beach & Cudugnon Cave

    Stop At: El Nido, El Nido, Palawan Island, Palawan Province, Mimaropa
    The daytrip boat tours from El Nido are pretty straightforward. For the most part, they do not overlap with each other. Each tour has its own highlights. All of the daytrip tours offer amazing attractions, not least for today. Today we join the boat daytrip tour which covers Snake Island, Pinagbuyutan Island, Entalula Beach and Cudugnon Cave. Snorkeling and lunch are included in today’s tour. Water is available for us on the boat, as is the case with the other boat daytrips throughout this tour.

    Day 12: Ferry to Coron Island, Sightseeing & Hiking Up Mount Tapyas for Sunset

    Stop At: Coron, Coron, Busuanga Island, Palawan Province, Mimaropa
    Today we take an early morning, 3-hour ferry ride to Coron Island. Upon arrival in the quiet/low-key village of Coron Town, we are taken directly to our nearby room. Afterwards, we are provided with a guided tour around town. Places to visit today include the public market, Coron Baywalk, the cashew harvest factory and Maquinit Hot Spring. At 3:45pm, we are taken via a 15-minute drive to the stairway entrance to Mount Tapyas. Reaching the top with our tour guide takes around 45 minutes. Watching the sunset from above is a beautiful way to end our day.
    Duration: 4 hours

    No meals included on this day.
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 13: Aquatic Views of Sunken Japanese Warships & Arguably the Most Beautiful Coral on Earth

    Stop At: Coron, Coron, Busuanga Island, Palawan Province, Mimaropa
    Today we join the boat daytrip tour which covers Lake Kayangan, Twin Lagoon, Sunset Beach, Siete Pecados (a.k.a. Isles of the Seven Sins), Skeleton Wreck, Coral Garden and CYC Beach. Lunch and snorkeling are included in today’s tour.
    Siete Pecados is where we see arguably the most amazing coral on earth. Lake Kayangan and the Twin Lagoon are also amazing. As its name suggests, the Twin Lagoon is two separate bodies of water divided by limestone karsts. At high tide, the second lagoon appears inaccessible. There is a small hole in the karsts that we can swim under in order to get to the other side. For those who prefer to climb over the rock formation, a wooden ladder rests above the hole.
    Duration: 7 hours

    Stop At: Skeleton Reef, Coron, Busuanga Island Philippines
    Skeleton Wreck is the most popular of the places to be visited today. The aquatic views from the sunken Japanese WWII ships off Coron Island are listed in Forbes Traveler Magazine as one of the top-10 best scuba diving sites in the world. Note that if you prefer diving over snorkeling, you can book directly with a local dive shop. They usually require at least 2 days advance notice. Also, you would need to show proof of a scuba diving license.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Meals included:
    • Lunch
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 14: Our Tour Ends Today

    Stop At: Coron, Coron, Busuanga Island, Palawan Province, Mimaropa
    Coron Town is the final destination on our tour of the Philippines. Transportation will be arranged for you to reach the airport.

    Arguably the only major tourist destination in the Philippines not included in this 14-day tour is the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. It can be reached via a quick flight from El Nido. Let us know if you have the time and interest.

    In the November-December 2007 issue of the National Geographic Traveler’s Magazine, Palawan was chosen as one of the best island destinations in the world. Sabang is located on the western coast of Palawan Island. This small village is commonly used by tourists as an access point to Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. This park is one of the most famous tourist destinations in all of the Philippines. There you’ll discover small waterfalls inside caves, as well as rock formations, bats, a deep water hole, river channels, a mangrove forest and marine creatures.
