Swathes of white-sand beaches on Boracay and Bohol’s marine life have long attracted visitors to the Philippines, but there’s much to explore beyond the sand and snorkeling. Our Philippines specialists can suggest the best places to go across the archipelago, to create your tailor-made itinerary.
You can cruise past the limestone cliffs of El Nido, hike through Palawan’s jungle interior or explore Southern Luzon’s landscape of waterfalls, river rapids and volcanoes. Ethnic tribes are scattered across the archipelago, many still farming the grand rice terraces that have transformed the hillsides of Banaue. Then there are the towns and cities, including the Spanish churches and Taoist temples of Cebu, and high-rise yet soulful and arty Manila.
