With over 6,000 islands contained within its borders, the Philippines are one of the largest archipelagos in the world. While we can’t possibly show you all of them in just eight days, this journey through the country’s northern half will feel more than comprehensive enough. Up here, you’ll discover the arresting inland beauty of Luzon, known for world-famous (and incredibly picturesque) terraced rice paddies. Elsewhere, you’ll be treated to a first-person encounter with the unique hilltribe culture that dominates the region, learning about witchcraft and healing arts from a bona fide medicine man. Looking for the road less travelled? It runs through here.
Highlights: Trekking through villages, visiting World Heritage rice terraces, visiting remote waterfalls and caves, savoring Filipino cuisine
It would take several lifetimes to explore the 6,000+ islands that make up the Philippine archipelago, but if you’ve only got the one to spare, spend it in the South. A haven for sunbathers and spelunkers alike, the Southern Philippines are a thrill to discover—both above-ground and under. Blessed with miles of pristine, uncrowded beaches, intriguing caves and the two-tiered Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, the Palawan province is perfect for travellers eager to try their hand at a variety of experiences in an underexplored part of South East Asia. Looking for something different? You’ll find plenty of it here.
