Discover the “Pearl of the Orient Seas,” the Philippines

The Philippines, coined the ‘Gems of the East,’ consists of 7,107 islands, and most of them are very small. All of the islands have a lot to offer to tourists, from the typical “sun, sea & beach” holidays to Eco Adventures deep into the diverse geography of these beautiful tropical islands. And don’t forget to meet the people – they are very friendly, and the country welcomes tourists, as they bring money to the country to support local businesses and the economy. From swimming with dolphins in coral waters, to exploring volcanoes and hidden waterfalls, to going out on the town to meet the people (perhaps trying some “tuba” coconut wine) and learn about their rich culture, the Philippines really has it all.

Embark on a full day small group excursion to the town of Pagsanjan, Laguna located two and a half hours south of Manila. Your destination is the Majestic Pagsanjan Falls. Take a scenic boat ride on a native dugout canoe (banca.) As the boat is skillfully maneuvered upstream by two boatmen, the landscape diversifies with beautiful boulders, steep gorges and lush tropical vegetation. Return downstream by “shooting the rapids” as expert boatmen steer past huge boulders in churning waters at top speeds. With its booming waters cascading down the cliff 900 feet below, this is truly an exhilarating, spine-tingling, adrenaline-pumping ride!

Next, hit the beach on our Mactan Island Snorkeling & Picnic Tour from Cebu City. This full day fun in the sun small group tour combines the excitement of riding on a motorized canoe (banca) with snorkeling, swimming or diving in the small islands of the Mactan Channel. Feed fish and soon you will have these colorful creatures feasting from your hands. Enjoy a refreshing swim in reef waters or free diving. A delightful lunch of grilled seafood, chicken or pork with fresh fruits for dessert will be served picnic style on a white sand beach. Whatever you choose to do, your time at Mactan Island is sure to be memorable and fun.

There’s no better way to end your day than enjoying a delicious buffet dinner of Philippine delicacies on board a floating barge on the Loboc River. Our Loboc Riverside Dinner & Night Cruise in Bohol offers a peaceful atmosphere and soft, soothing river breeze to help you unwind. Afterwards, transfer to another barge which will float you upriver towards Busay Falls, with a live band playing music to entertain you. Let the river and the lovely choir performances of the local talents of Loboc serenade you. Drinks are also available on board. You’ll love the cooler temperature of the day, beautiful tropical scenery, and relaxing ambiance.
