Philippines Vacation, Tour Packages & Travel Experiences


  • Cross water and rice terraces in Batad near Banaue
  • A perfect tropical white sand beach in Boracay
  • The annual Feast of the Child Jesus parade in Cebu
  • Manila Cathedral in the Intramuros area of Manila is a popular destination while on you Philippine vacation.

The Philippines is made up of over 7000 islands in the form of an archipelago. This may sound daunting but of course only a certain number of islands will be of interest to the visitor. One of the attractions is that most locals speak excellent English due mainly to the fact that the country was an American colony for a long period. However, there is a mixture of Spanish influences (another colonizer) which mingle with the American.

Natural beauty is reflected in the topography which includes majestic volcanic mountains, scenic rice paddies, tumbling waterfalls, serene lakes and some of the best beaches anywhere. Add to this smiling, friendly and welcoming people and this is the essence of all of our Philippines tours.

The capital Manila appears at first to be a busy, noisy city but it does have its attractions. The sweeping seafront promenade of mainly high rise hotels eventually leads to Old Manila which includes Intramuros, an old walled city and historical landmark. Other attractions are Rizal Park, an oasis for relaxation and Chinatown, one of the largest in the world. Shopping here is excellent and inexpensive.

 


Beaches are a large part of the reasons to visit the Philippines. Major beach resorts are Boracay, a lively island resort with some of the best beaches anywhere in the world, Palawan, another island with not only excellent beaches but a beautiful National Park and a major centre for Scuba Diving, Cebu, though primarily a city and known as the “Queen of the South” has beautiful white sand beaches located on Mactan Island. Cebu mixes urban attractions with rest and relaxation perfectly.

Something very different is a visit to the Banaue Rice Terraces which are carved into the rocks on hilly mountain slopes and which are 2000 years old. The scenery can only be described as breathtaking.
