Back
Islands of the Philippines on a Shoestring

For travellers looking for a strange and beautiful adventure, this island-hopping adventure will show you the best of the Philippines’ nature, beaches, and cultural life. Roam Bohol’s famous Chocolate Hills (not suitable for consumption), snorkel with massive whale sharks in the clearest of clear blue waters (if the season is right), roam through exotic Manila and historic Cebu, chill out in laid-back Siquijor, and soak up the beach vibes of Boracay. From interacting with local communities to lots of free time built in, this trip is both meaningful and liberating. So go on and feel free.
