This bountiful country consists of more than 7,641 islands and is split in 3 regions: Luzon, most Northern then Visayas and finally Mindanao in the south.
Each of the regions offer their own nature and culinary traditions. You can swim with whale sharks in Oslob or visit the timeless rice terraces of Banaue. Seen as an up and coming alternative to Thailand, Philippines is widely known for it’s tropical beaches and coral reefs, but is actually home to the most marine biodiversity on earth giving it an edge in all things scuba and water activities!
It’s true what they say, “It’s More Fun In The Philippines!”
When a country consists of over 7 thousand islands, multiple climates and geographical landscapes and dozens of bookitlist items, making an itinerary can be a nightmare. This 13 day all inclusive tour covers the best the Philippines has to offer including: Diving with whale sharks in Oslob, Multiple World’s Best Beach Award Winner “White Beach” in Boracay, El Nido island hopping and one of the new 7 wonders of nature Puerto Princesa Underground River.
Uber and Grab are your best bet in the cities of Manila and Cebu. Jeepneys are a must try at least once however, so you can ride like the locals. Everyone speaks English in the Philippines and the locals are INCREDIBLY warm and receptive willing to help anyone who’s warm enough to ask.
The rainy season is from June to the start of October so anytime before or after is fine. The weather is hot 365 days a year.
For staying in major cities it’s not compulsory although if you’re unsure you can always get Hepatitis and Typhoid shots beforehand.
We recommend going for 2 weeks (or longer if you have the time). There’s so much to see and take part in, and it’s best to mix and match the regions to get the most out of your experience. Philippines' variety in culture and scenery borders the absurd & with over 7,000 islands it’s not surprising.
Rob was a fantastic guide. The trip was very enjoyable and Robs knowledge and expertise were great. Would defo recommend
Excellent service from start to finish. I booked the National 3 Peasks challenge in 24 hours. i had regular communication from Rob and the team prioe to the event checking in on my progress, which really spurred me on as well as a helpful fitness plan i has to folow. For the challenge itself Rob and Tim really helped put the group at ease, and was very encouraging. Such a credit to business. i would not hesitate at all in recommending bookitlist to friends and family and will define use again in the future. Thank you for pushing me to finish the challenge!
