Your destinations

Philippines

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.

Bohol

This picturesque island boasts lush greenery and beautiful beaches. Known for its wildlife and unique landscapes, many visitors come to Bohol for adventure and exploration. 

 

The most popular and well-known attraction on the island is the Chocolate Hills which are symmetrically rounded hills expanding to the horizon. In the dry season, these hills turn a brownish colour hence where they get their name from.  Another great attraction on the island is the bamboo bridge which hangs over the slow-flowing river. Once you have crossed the bridge, you will find souvenir shops and local boutiques. This island is great for those seeking something unique and different but with a splash of beach and fun.
