More than 7.000 islands shape the Philippines archipelago: a mosaic of hidden coves in the middle of the ocean, rice fields, chocolate coloured hills, volcanoes, secret lagoons and underground rivers. It's way too easy to understand why this destination is a favourite between nature and outdoor lovers. During our trip, we’ll be able to swim with sea turtles and gigantic whale sharks (don't worry though, they don't bite!), we’ll trek the sweet Chocolate Hills and discover secret beaches by kayak. Not only that: we’ll get to know the Filipinos, that are renown to be one of the most welcoming and warm-hearted people in the world - they for sure will make us feel immediately at home. We’ll travel between the islands of the archipelago and after every landing, we’ll surely think "we are in paradise!" - spoiler alert: Philippines really are! Are you ready for your dreamy Philippines adventure?

Travel mood

During this trip, there are many transfers and different accommodations. For these reasons, a backpack is mandatory - let’s say it’s better if you leave your big luggage at home!

Check-in

Roundtrip flights are not included in the TO Services so that you can choose where from, when and with whom you want to fly. All of that is up to you!



Hotel check-in in Manila. Time to start this trip right: what a better way than with food? Tonight our welcome dinner awaits us: we'll be able to try out some specialities of the local cuisine. Some musts? Abodo, a delicious chicken and pork stew, maybe with a side of ukoy, a shrimp and sweet potatoes pancake.

Our first sea “taste test”

In the morning we take a domestic flight and we arrive at Tagbilaran, Bohol Island. We don't want to stay in the city for too long: what we surely want is to reach the beach and spend the afternoon hours enjoying the famous Philippines' crystal clear waters.

We get to Panglao, where we can decide how to spend our afternoon: do we want to relax at Alone Beach, or are we feeling adventurous and ready for some kayaking offshore? One thing is certain: we'll be at the beach till late so that we can enjoy the first sunset of our adventure - maybe with a cocktail poured directly inside a coconut. Cheers to us!

Bohol outback: discovering the Chocolate Hills

Day 3 - details

Chocolate Hills

This will be the sweetest day of our trip here in the Philippines. Time to say bye to the shore and go inland: we must discover the famous Chocolate Hills! There are more than 1.000 grassy hills that stand against the horizon in front of us: the view is quite surreal. The name of these hills come from the brownish colour they assume when the dry season comes - you didn’t think they were actually made out of chocolate, did you?

Not too far away from the Chocolate Hills, there is a tiny sanctuary where we can stop by and meet some new friends... This place is home to many cute tarsiers! These tiny animals with rather huge eyes are way sweeter than the hills from this morning - but they are also very easy to frighten. We must be quiet and respect their home: hopefully one will decide to jump somewhere - their jumps are quite impressive, they can reach almost 5 meters!

Included: Chocolate Hills tour, local transports and admission fees if any Not included: food and beverages

We arrive at Palawan

Rise and shine dear WeRoaders: we have some travelling to do! We say goodbye to Bohol from our ferry directed to Cebu and from there we fly directly to Puerto Princesa. We get to Palawan, the island's capital, in the afternoon: today's transfer was pretty tiring, so we take it easy. We can enjoy a drink together or, why not, maybe allow ourselves a nice, refreshing massage.



After having some freshly caught fish for dinner, we can delight the local Filipinos with our voices: karaoke is the national hobby here in the Philippines, and we are not shy at all! We just have to agree on the first song: Bohemian Rhapsody shouldn't be that difficult to sing, right?

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park

One of the new seven wonders of the natural world

Puerto Princesa is renowned for one thing - well, not just one, but this is the most famous: its underground river, which is the longest one in the whole world. Since 1999 Sabang River has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage List and also one of the new seven wonders of the natural world. And guess what? This morning we'll discover this beauty by boat and we'll be mesmerized by the limestone formation inside the cave that the river moulded.

A night in paradise

After this almost claustrophobic experience, we need some fresh air: time to reach Inaladelan Island to spend the most incredible night of the trip. We'll sleep by the beach, under the stars, in a lovely tent that is the only thing we really need tonight.

Included: Subterranean River NP entrance fee and tour, ferry transfer to Inaladelan Island and local dinner Money Pot: local transports and admission fees if any Not included: food and beverages when not specified

Heavenly waters

After a night spent under the stars, we reach the mainland of Palawan again and get to El Nido, a teeny tiny town in the northern part of the island. This will be our home for the next three days so that we'll be able to enjoy everything this place can offer, such as white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, coral reef, tall cliffs and also great food. Here the fish is caught daily, so it'll be some of the freshest you'll ever taste in your life. Another must of the local cuisine is crocodile stew - is there someone who will dare to try it out?



We'll have plenty to do here at El Nido: surely we'll have time to take a boat and discover the hidden beaches and lagoons like Papaya Beach and Small Lagoon, which are not to be missed. The coral reef here is pretty unique as well, so we have another addon to our list. After our intense days, we'll get some time to enjoy El Nido nightlife: we can enjoy some cocktails by the beach, dancing in the moonlight.



Included: all transfers to El Nido and private boat tour with lunch on day 7 Money Pot: local transports and admission fees if any Not included: food and beverages when not specified

Last days at the beach

Our time at El Nido is up: we must say goodbye and take a ferry to Coron, where we'll spend the last days of our adventure. Seems incredible that our trip is almost over, right? Let's not think about that just yet: we have to decide how to fully invest the time that we have, even though it's not that hard to guess how we'll spend these days... Did we hear the word "beach"?



Near Coron we can get to the Maquint Hot Springs, which is a saltwater natural pool - kind of odd since there are very few in the whole world. Not the only odd thing nearby though: Lake Barracuda is another one, with its mix of salty and sweet waters. We can visit both sites, or decide that we had enough of beaches and lakes and reach the summit of Mount Tapyas, a light hike that will give us a wonderful view of the surroundings. Something might catch your attention from up here: it's the "Coron" sign, the copycat of the "Hollywood'' one in L.A.

Deep diving into Manila

Well, goodbye Coron: we fly back to Manila and try not to think too much about the wonderful beaches we left behind. Today we have some time to explore the capital: we start with Little Tokyo, a peculiar neighbourhood that clearly reminds us of Japan, and we continue with Intramuros, the historical city centre. We can watch the sunset from Manila Bay, where we can also have a taste of the local street food.



So here we are, at the end of our trip: tonight we share our farewell dinner together, and then we spend the night in one of the many rooftop bars of Manila, with a view of the city that we'll hardly forget.
