Philippines

Northern Philippines and Palawan Adventure

The colourful culture, pristine beaches, and colonial history of the Philippines aren't easy to capture in just one trip but this 16-day tour is a pretty decent effort. Envelop yourself in colonial history within Manila's former walled centre and the charming town of Vigan, embark on a subterranean boat ride through an underground cave system, and visit a self-governing penal colony. The Philippines' beaches are some of the world's best, so we've left plenty of time for snorkelling or simply just lounging on the beaches of El Nido. This way, your knowledge of the country will only deepen alongside your tan.
