10 Day Philippines Experience -Itinerary
ARRIVE IN CEBU
We will pick you up from Cebu airport and take you to our hotel where we will spend the first night. The day is kept free of activities so you can arrive in your own time and relax before catching up with the rest of the group in the evening over dinner and a few drinks.
MOALBOAL, SARDINE RUN
Today we jump on our private minibus to MoalBoal, a cool little town right on the beach. Once we have checked in to our hotel we grab our snorkels and head into the water to swim with millions of Sardines.
ISLAND BOAT TRIP, SNORKELLING & TURTLES
Day 3 we board a boat for the day and head to some local islands to see some amazing coral reefs, tropical fish and hopefully some turtles. Optional diving is available. In the evening we head out to the best bars in town to enjoy the local nightlife
We head to one of the most breathtaking waterfalls in the Philippines, Kawasan waterfall. We spend a full day floating downstream and swimming through some of the most amazing scenery you have ever seen. Followed by a lazy evening to recharge before moving to our next destination.
TRAVEL TO SIQUIJOR ISLAND
Today we travel to the beautiful island of Siquijor and arrive early afternoon where we will check into our accommodation. You will have the rest of the afternoon to chill by the pool or on the beach.
EXPLORE SIQUIJOR ISLAND
We explore the islands highlights and hidden gems. Famous for its faith healers, we visit these local legends to see what they get up to, check out epic mountain views, local caves and waterfalls and finish off at the beach.
TRAVEL TO BORACAY
We leave Siquijor by boat and head back to the mainland where we jump on a bus to the airport before catching a short flight to Boracay, well known for its world-class beaches. We will arrive early evening, check into our hotel which is where we are based for the final 3 nights. You will have the option to chill for the evening or check out the lively backpacker night scene.
UPDATE: NOW CHANGED FROM BORACAY TO SIARGAO
Due to the recent announcement by the government that Boracay Island will be closing to tourists for 6 months starting 26th April 2018, we’ll be heading to the island of Siargao instead. Siargao Island, known for its beautiful beaches is dubbed “The Surfing Capital of the Philippines”.
Boracay Island, as well as Koh Phi Phi in Thailand, plan to close over summer 2018 in order to protect the fragile eco-systems that have been damaged by mass tourism over the past 10 years. South East Asia Backpacker supports the move. Find out more in this article.
Today is a free day to spend as you please. You can top up the tan by the pool, beach or even fill your day with optional watersports such as banana boating, tubing, parasailing and much more…
ISLAND BOAT TRIP
