Itinerary

2 nights – Manila,
6 nights – Boracay
6 nights – Cebu


✈️ UK to Manila (2 Nights): Upon your arrival at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, we’ll transfer you to your hotel where you will be staying for two nights. Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, offers a wonderful blend of modernity and rich history. Make sure you visit the city’s most popular historical landmark, Intramuros, the walled city that showcases Spanish colonial architecture, and also explore Fort Santiago, a significant historical site located within the walled city. If you need some green space and tranquillity, take a leisurely stroll in Rizal Park, with its landscaped lawns, named after the country’s national hero, José Rizal. If you have time, head to San Agustin Church, a UNESCO World Heritage site, known for its intricate Baroque architecture. Explore the vibrant streets of Binondo, Manila’s Chinatown, and immerse yourself in the lively atmosphere and delectable cuisine.

✈️ Manila to Boracay (6 nights): After 2 nights in the capital, you’ll hop on a short flight out of Manila and head to the beautiful island paradise of Boracay, located in the heart of the Philippines. As you set foot on this tropical haven, you’ll realise that this is where the relaxation really starts. Spend your days sunbathing on the beach, such as the stunning White Beach, swim in the crystal-clear waters and explore the underwater life by snorkelling or scuba diving around the coral reefs that surround the island. Take a boat tour to nearby islands, including Puka Beach (known for its beautiful shells) Crystal Cove Island (offering scenic caves and crystal-clear waters for swimming) and Crocodile Island which, fear not, despite its name, derives its moniker solely from its shape, resembling a crocodile when observed from certain angles and not because it is inhabited by snappy creatures! In the evenings, explore the vibrant beach scene nightlife of Boracay, with beachfront bars, restaurants and live music.

✈️ Boracay to Cebu (6 nights): The adventure continues, and you’ll take a short flight to the island of Cebu for the next 6 nights, which is an island located to the west of Boracay. Whilst it will be tempting to spend your days basking in the sun or exploring the coral reefs on one of the pristine beaches such as Malapascua and Bantayan Island, Cebu has an abundance of attractions and activities that would be a shame to miss. Cebu City, the provincial capital, has a rich history and colonial heritage with fascinating sites such as Magellan’s Cross, Basilica Minore del Santo Niño, and Fort San Pedro. Beyond the city, the island is home to picturesque waterfalls including Kawasan Falls and Tumalog Falls. It is also a gateway to nearby destinations including Bohol, with its iconic Chocolate Hills which is a series of more than a thousand cone-shaped hills that turn chocolate brown during the dry season, creating a breath-taking sight. Another highlight of Bohol is the chance to see the adorable Philippine tarsier, one of the world’s smallest primates. The Tarsier Conservation Area provides a sanctuary for these endangered creatures, allowing visitors to observe them in their natural habitat.

✈️ Cebu to Manila to UK: After 2 weeks exploring the Philippines, it’s time to head home and you’ll catch a flight from Cebu via Manila then onto the UK.
