You fly from Amsterdam airport, or any other airport. with a scheduled flight of your own choice. Filitravel buys the ticket for you and the bill goes at the cost.
You will be met at Manila Airport and taken to your hotel in the old town. We have chosen The Bayleaf Intramuros, a hotel in the historic center of Manila. It is perfect to discover the sights of the city and the service is also perfect.
Day 3 to 6
With a guide and private transport you travel from Manila to the rice terraces in the Cordillage Mountains. You walk through the ancient terraces of Banaue and see the hanging coffins on the mountain walls of Sagada. The overnight stays are planned at Native Village Inn, a resort built in the style of the original Ifugao people. If you prefer something more luxurious, you can also opt for a stay at the Banaue Hotel.
On the last day you will be driven back to Manila and you will stay at the Bayleaf Intramuros Hotel again. It is a tiring journey but definitely worth it!
Day 7 to 9
You will be picked up from the hotel and taken to Manila Airport. With a domestic flight you go to the city of Legzpi in the south of the island of Luzon. Here you will be met at the airport and taken to your resort in the town of Donsol in just under two hours. Here you will spend the night at Vitton Beach Resort at the boarding point for excursions to the Whale Sharks. Discussion is therefore not necessary: you simply board one of the boats. This place shows you the Whale Sharks in 'free nature' on their natural migration across the world's oceans. These animals obviously do not adapt to the holiday wishes of visitors and the animals can only be seen in the period from mid-November to mid-May. At the Legazpi airport is the Mayon Volcano, which is known for its perfect shape. The volcano is quite active and can therefore not always be visited!
From the resort you will be taken back to Legazpi airport. With an early domestic flight you go to the city of Cebu on the island of the same name. It is one of the larger cities of the Philippines and that is why we have planned a short stay in the city. You spend the night in the center of the city, at the Mandarin Plaza Hotel. In the evening you have the opportunity to discover the city yourself: you stay in the middle of the entertainment area.
Day 11 to 14
You will be picked up from the Mango Park Hotel and a minibus will take you to the town of Moalboal on the west coast of the island of Cebu. A few active days start: in addition to the excellent diving possibilities, Moalboal offers the opportunity to stretch your legs with 'outdoor activities'. In groups you can climb and descend river gorges, mountain bike in the area and much more. You simply have to see the Kawasan waterfalls: a short walk through the forest brings you to this beautiful place. You stay right by the sea at the Tipolo Beach Resort and your host Jochen takes good care of your well-being.
Day 15 to 18
From the resort you will be taken to the seaport of the city of Cebu, followed by a fast boat to the island of Bohol. You will of course be taken from the seaport to your resort.
Bohol has a nice sandy beach with many resorts and restaurants and at the same time the interior has a lot to offer in the form of the Chocolate Hills, the Baclayon church, the Loboc river. Very special to see are the smallest monkeys in the world: the Tarsier monkeys. If you wish, you can go out to sea to see the dolphins or you can decide to sail a little further and watch the Whale Sharks.
The nights are planned at the Lost Horizon Resort on the beach of Alona Beach. It is a neat resort in the middle of the 'life' of Bohol. You can also opt for a quieter and more luxurious stay right outside the crowds and also directly on the sea: the Linaw Beach resort. There is no price difference: it is about your personal preference.
You will be taken to Bohol airport and with a domestic flight you will return to Manila. Our driver will take you to the Bayleaf Intramuros hotel for a final night in the Philippines. You can also choose to stay the last night on the island of Bohol. That of course means that the next day will be a tough one.
Day 20 and 21
Our driver will pick you up from the hotel and take you to Manila airport for your international return flight. The next day you will arrive in departure city again.
