Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

Made up of 7,107 islands, the Philippines is defined by its pristine beaches, vivid green rice fields, fiery volcanoes, and diverse culture. The entire area covers around 300,000 square kilometres, and is surrounded by the South China Sea to the west, the Philippine Sea to the east and the Celebes Sea to the south. Many mountains and active volcanoes dot the landscape, and craggy limestone cliffs and caves border the crystal clear waters and powder-soft white sands. The religions, ethnicity, language and scenery vary hugely from island to island, resulting in an ever changing, multi layered experience of authentic Asia.

Your Itinerary

During their tour, our members will follow the itinerary as seen below.

Please Note: The itinerary below is for a standard 9-night tour. Guests staying for 11 nights will enjoy an additional 2-night stay at the Seda Lio Hotel in El Nido, while those opting to book for 14 nights will enjoy an additional 5-night stay. During these additional stays, guests will enjoy free time at leisure.

Guests have the opportunity to add a local English-speaking guide during their 4 days in Banaue at the next stage of the booking process for an additional fee. An English-speaking guide is included during the Sagada and Batad excursions, but we recommend adding a guide for the whole of your stay in this region.

Day 1: Arrival into Manila 
Upon arrival at Manila International Airport, you will take a transfer to your hotel. Enjoy a complimentary welcome package which includes a cold towel, mineral water, and a welcome lei. The rest of the day is free at leisure. Overnight accommodation at the Diamond Hotel in a Deluxe Room or Similar.

Day 2: Manila - Cauayan - Banaue (Breakfast Included)
After breakfast, you will be picked up at the hotel and transferrd to the domestic airport for a flight to Cauayan at approx. 7.30 am. Upon arrival at approx. 8.45 am, you will be met and transferred using private transportation for 4 hours to your hotel. Later in the afternoon, you'll arrive at the Banaue Hotel or Similar. Here, you'll check in and enjoy an overnight stay in a Standard Room.

Day 3: Sagada Mountain Province (Breakfast Included)
After breakfast, you'll be picked up at 7 am and transferred in a private air-conditioned vehicle for 2 hours to the Sagada Mountain Province. The Municipality of Sagada is a 5th class municipality in the province of Mountain Province, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 11,127 people. It is adjacent to Bontoc, the provincial capital. Sagada is famous for its Hanging coffins. This is a traditional way of burying people that is still utilised. Not everyone is qualified to be buried this way; among other things, one had to have been married and had grandchildren. Popular activities include trekking, exploring caves and waterfalls, and visiting historical sites, nature hikes, and participating in tribal celebrations. Most of the guides are natives, also known as Igorots. Sagada is nestled in a valley at the upper end of the Malitep tributary of the Chico River some one and a half kilometers above sea level in the Central Cordillera Mountains, enveloped between the main Cordillera Ranges and the Ilocos Range. Enjoy an overnight stay at the Banaue Hotel or Similar in a Standard Room.
Day 4: Banaue View Point and Batad Trek Tour (Breakfast Included)
After breakfast, you'll be picked up at 7 am and transferred in a private air-conditioned vehicle to Batad and the Banaue View Point. Batad is famous for its rice terraces, one of the five clusters of rice terraces in Ifugao that are inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage Site list since 1995. Through the years, more and more tourists, local and foreign alike, flock to this side of Cordillera to see the magnificent rice terraces that carpet the entire mountainside of the small village. Adventure awaits in Batad since most of the attractions in the area require trekking or walking. But walking along the rice terraces and being surrounded by amazing scenery make a day in the village a truly worthy one! Batad is approximately 18 kilometers from Banaue town proper. The jeepneys are stationed in the terminal in front of public market. The jeepney will take you to the end of the road past the saddle; approximately 500 metres or 15 minutes trek to Batad village. Take a dip in the cool and relaxing waters of Tappiyah Falls. The first thing you’d want to do when in Banaue is to get the most magnificent view that you can get of the Banaue Rice Terraces. After all, you went there to see what this so called “Eighth Wonder of the World” looks like. The View Point is on the main road on the outskirts of the town, about 4km from the town centre. A guide is not necessary and it is a good walk if you are up to it. You will need a guide if you want to trek there through the terraces. Early morning or late afternoon is usually the best time because the shadows cast add an extra dimension to the terraces - the midday sun can make the terraces look dead. There are many souvenir shops crowded into a small area at the view point, but they don’t get in the way when you are on the view deck. Enjoy an overnight stay in a Standard Room at the Banaue Hotel or Similar.

Day 5: Cauayan - Manila - El Nido (Breakfast Included)
At 4.30 am, you'll be picked up and transferred to Cauayan Airport for a flight to Manila. Upon arrival, you'll take a flight at 9.15 am and will land at 10.20 am.

After breakfast at the resort, you'll be picked up at 8.30 am and transferred via a private, air-conditioned vehicle to El Nido Seaport. Here, you'll board a motorised boat before you enjoy a day of island hopping. El Nido is known for its beautiful powdery white sand beaches and limestone rock formations. Afterwards, take a transfer back to the Seda Lio Hotel or Similar, where you'll rest in a Deluxe Forest Room.

Helicopter Island
By just looking its shape, you will already know why it’s called the Helicopter Island. Some people had a hard time associating its shape with just 20 minutes away from El Nido town by boat, Helicopter Island features a nice, long white-sand beach, crystal-clear waters and towering karst formations projecting from a dense tropical  forest on both of the island.

Matinloc Island
More formally known as the Shrine of Our Lady of Matinloc, it was built in 1982. The place has been completely neglected (with the main building almost empty), but tourists are still allowed to visit. While others may find this as a spiritual oasis, most tours make a stop here for the view.

Secret Beach
Separated from the ocean through a small keyhole-like opening.  Secret Beach is only accessible by swimming through this door size opening through a narrow crevice in a rock wall. The tour guide awaits you on the side of the opening, waits for the water to gush out then he grabs you and throws you in. Here you’ll see a beach surrounded by limestone cliffs which cannot be seen from open sea.

Hidden Beach
This beach is surrounded by limestone rocks formations. The swimming area resembles a natural infinity pool with crystal clear waters. The serenity of the place is manifested with the whistling of birds. You’ll have to swim for five minutes ten it gets to be waist to knee deep as you walk to the beach tucked in on the left hand side. Better to try to float as the corals and rocks can scratch you. If you are facing the beach on the right hand side you’ll see nemo. After tour,take private air-conditioned transfer to resort.
Day 7: El Nido Tour A (Breakfast and Lunch Included)
After breakfast at the resort, you will be picked up at 8.30 am and transferred in a private, air-conditioned vehicle to the El Nido Seaport.

In this tour, you can discover beautiful lagoons, beaches and snorkelling spots where you can swim and admire the corals, the colorful fauna and its hundreds of fish’s species. It is a place where you can just relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of exploring the hidden wonders of each lagoon. The Small and Big Lagoon’s tranquil turquoise-green waters of its orchid-lined limestone walls, showcase a kaleidoscope of marine life. Shimizu is an island with stunning limestone cliffs where “Balinsasayaw” (swiftlets) nest and produces the much sought after bird’s nest soup, believed by Asians to have healing properties. Secret Lagoon is located in a small island reminiscent of the movie "the Beach" surrounded by limestone karst cliffs. Seven Commandos Beach - Seven Commandos is named after the 7 remaining Japanese commandos who lived in the island as stranglers after World War II. Lunch at one of the Islands. Afterwards, you'll return back to the Seda Lio Hotel or Similar, where you'll rest in a Deluxe Forest Room.
