As you may have noticed from our endless photos and snapchat stories we recently took a trip to the beautiful sun filled Philippines! We had an absolutely fantastic adventure, and we’re very excited to share our top tips with you so you can have a wonderful time there also! 🙂
Don’t be in a rush: The Philippines are up there with the most beautiful places I have ever visited… so when you get to visit do not be in a rush away! There’s nothing worse than having to stick to a strict travel itinerary! Who knows you may forget to ever leave the stunning islands!
Visit Boracay: I instantly feel in love with the place as soon as I landed. We stayed on white beach… which is quite literally a beach with soft white powdered sand, lined with palm trees and delicious restaurants! We spent our days swimming in the warm turquoise sea, sun bathing on the beach and exploring the beautiful shops on the island! It was the perfect get away! I wasn’t the slightest bit surprised when I learnt that Boracay was voted the best island in the entire world in 2012!
Go diving in Bohol: Located to the West of Cebu (from where we took a two hour ferry to reach our destination), Bohol is the 10th largest island of the Philippines! Bohol is also famous for its world class diving, consistently listed as one of the top 10 destinations for diving in the world!
Visit the chocolate hills: A major attraction also on the island of Bohol are the chocolate hills – which are numerous mounds of limestone formations! There is a fantastic view when you hike to the highest point!
Take a trip to a masseuse: There is an abundance of beautiful spas in the Philippines. The average cost of an hour long full body massage is about 6euro.. it is most definitely worth a trip to relax, unwind and distress!
Hope you enjoy your trip there as much as we did! x
