Description

Manila - El Nido - Manila

Sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, tasty ass munchies, great locals with the best sense of humor and the madness of Manila await you this February. Jump into this land where the awesome local rum is cheaper than a bottle of coca cola!

Highlights

Island hopping
The biggest highlight of your trip are the mesmerizing waters and beautiful lagoons around El Nido, Palawan, repeatedly rated as one of the top islands not only in The Philippines but the world.

Deserted Island, Robinson Crusoe Style camping!
Get to a deserted island and listen to some music while drinking the awesome local Tanduay rum – which (tried and tested) never gives you a hangover! You’ll spend the night under the stars (or in a tent if you prefer) and wake up to the sound of waves.

Organized chaos that is Manila
One of the most densely populated cities in the world, Manila is organized chaos. Walk through its old Spanish quarter with its horse drawn carriages and discover why it was known as the “pearl of the orient” and see how it’s changed over the years.
