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.

Amazing Views in Beautiful Kauai

Evergreen: Fly Non-Stop To 10 West Coast Cities
Hawaii has lots of beautiful islands to choose from, but if you can only visit one, choose Kauai.  The oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands, the “Garden Isle” has been featured in many movies including the animated film “Lilo & Stitch” and the dinosaur flick “Jurassic Park.”  As you arrive on the island you are sure to be taken aback by the sheer magnificence of it all, and to be certain that you see everything there is to see it is suggested that you take a guided tour.

On one of the many helicopter tours available, you can marvel at the gorgeous scenery from above, which is an opportunity that you do not want to miss.  There is nothing quite like the high you will feel as you soar above the islands and experience them from all angles.  You will have the chance to see Nawiliwili Harbor, Waimea Canyon, and Menehune Fishpond, which is rumored to have been built by leprechauns entirely in one night.  You will also float over Kipu Kai and the Tunnel of Trees, as well as Olokele Canyon and Na Pali.

If you are looking to have your fun on the ground, consider taking an ATV tour and navigating your way through thick vegetation to the Kahili Mountain Range or to the Koloa Plantation, depending on which tour you choose.  With the latter, you may even get to see a spectacular whale show as you travel along the Poipu shoreline.  This typically happens from December through March.  The former features amazing views of a private waterfall which, if you are feeling adventurous, you can go cliff-jumping near later in the day.

Visit Kauai and you will be in for the experience of a lifetime.  Don’t forget to bring extra film for your camera since you will be snapping continuously from beginning to end, and keep an eye on www.kauaitours.net for more exciting options for your Hawaiian vacation.
