DETAILED DESCRIPTION

For more than two weeks, lose yourself to the considerable charms of The Philippines. From history and culture to breathtaking natural beauty, this delightful collection of islands has it all. Start in the metropolis of Manila where you’ll tour the old town, taste the delights of Chinatown and hike across the volcanic mountains just a short drive away from all the bustle. Next, hit the country’s finest beaches, from world-famous Boracay to remote and peaceful Amanpulo, not forgetting gorgeous and exotic El Nido whose cliffs and bays await with activities and adventures. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Manila

Welcome to the Philippines, as you touch down at the international airport, you’ll be whisked into the bustling, exciting city of Manila to your luxurious hotel. Here you’ll check in, get comfortable and enjoy a relaxing night’s stay.

DAY 2: Manila

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before you head into the old town for a fascinating tour of Intramuros. Explore within the old city walls, visiting the reconstructed 19th-Century Casa Manila and San Agustin Church. Grab a light lunch at a local restaurant before heading to Chinatown for a food tour, sampling all the delights. After checking out more architectural points of interest, you’ll head back to the hotel for a relaxing evening.

DAY 3: Manila

After breakfast at your hotel, you’ll head for the volcanic province of Batangas for a discovery tour of Taal heritage and natural beauty. Boat across Taal lake to reach the starting point of your trek up the mountainous ridge to the rim of the volcano. After a tasty local lunch, you’ll head down into the pretty town of Taal. Wander through the narrow streets lined with restored houses and snap some pictures before heading back to Manila for the night.

DAY 4: Boracay

After breakfast, it’s time to say ‘au revoir’ to Manila as you transfer to the airport for your domestic flight to Caticlan, a small airport near to the wharf. Hop aboard your boat and speed across to beautiful Boracay. Check in at your opulent beachside hotel and savor the gorgeous views out to sea.

DAY 5: Boracay

Relax and indulge with three sun-soaked days on one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. Take a leisurely breakfast at your hotel, lounge by the pool or on the beach, swim in crystal waters and sample some of the best mangoes in the world. By night, join the beach party with drinks and breathtaking fire shows on the sand.

DAY 6: Boracay

Enjoy more precious beach time on Boracay today. Sink your toes into the soft white sand as you walk down the beach towards Boat Station 3 and back again. If the temptation strikes, head off-beach for an off-roading adventure - the local viewpoint is simply not to be missed. Just make sure you’re back in time for another of Boracay’s famous blood-orange sunsets.

DAY 7: Boracay

It’s another day of lazing by the pool or beachside today. Sit back with a cocktail in hand, or venture out into the crystal waters for an aquatic adventure, snorkel-gear in hand, to get a first-hand glimpse of the vibrant underwater life.

DAY 8: El Nido

It’s time to leave Boracay behind but you’re not saying goodbye to the beach just yet. Retrace your steps to Manila and then it’s on to your flight to El Nido. From here take the 45-minute boat ride over to Pangulasian Island where you’ll check in to your gorgeous island resort in Bacuit Bay. With views of the sunrise and sunset, it’s completely idyllic.

DAY 9: Pangalusian Island, El Nido

Wake up to your first full day in paradise, to spend utterly at your own leisure. Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast at your hotel before heading out to explore the gorgeous Pangalusian Island with its soft sand beaches and transparent waters.

DAY 10: Pangalusian Island, El Nido

After breakfast today, you may wish to take a hike around the craggy, dramatic clifftops to catch the amazing panoramas from Viewing Deck. Pack a picnic and make a day of it as you snap pictures and enjoy the scenery.

DAY 11: Pangalusian Island, El Nido

Before you continue on your adventure, it would be a crime to miss out on all the aquatic action to be had in El Nido. Go island hopping and tour the lagoons that surround the area. Get out on the water on a pedal boat, paddle board, or kayak or get under the waves with some snorkel gear.

DAY 12: Pamalican Island

After breakfast, make your way back to the mainland, but only briefly, as you transfer back to Manila and onwards by private plane to the private airstrip on the gorgeous island retreat of Amanpulo. Relax in luxury, surrounded by turquoise waters.

DAY 13: Pamalican Island

At this, the final stop on your Filipino beach tour, you have three full days to simply relax in utter comfort, surrounded by natural beauty. Swim, sunbathe and sample the delicious local food, indulge in a spa treatment or two and utterly unwind.

DAY 14: Pamalican Island

Enjoy another exotic beach day at your luxury resort. If the mood strikes, venture out and explore the nearby beaches, perhaps taking a walk off-road into the lush jungles. Let the lively local wildlife bring out the intrepid explorer in you!

DAY 15: Pamalican Island

Today, your final full day of your exciting Philippines adventure, you may wish to kick back and indulge at your luxury hotel. Treat yourself to a relaxing massage at the on-site spa, or take a dip in the refreshing pool. Today is all about you!

DAY 16: Departure

After breakfast in Amanpulo, it’s time to head back to the international airport in Manila, where you’ll wave goodbye to the gorgeous and hospitable Philippines as you depart on your onward flight.
