Despite having just over 2 weeks till departure, my plan is still pretty non-existant. Which is good, I think… Remember I’m trying to be all spontaneous!
I’m trying to make my travel less rigid and defined by tight schedules and tick-lists. Nevertheless, I have booked some flights (the best way to connect to Philippines gazillion islands) but apart from that, the itinerary is basic to say the least.
Here is the Philippines Itinerary so far:
First Stop: Manila (2 days)
I have heard nothing but horror stories about this megacity. I’m desperate to uncover something, ANYTHING redeeming but not desperate enough to extend my stay here for any longer than 2 days…
Second Stop: Boracay (5 days)
Boracay on the other hand…
I cannot wait to be splayed out on the beach, cocktail in one hand, Kindle in the other. I’m worried that Boracay may be a little touristy but with glorious beaches and spectacular sunsets in abundance, you can’t go too wrong, surely?!
We will be flying into Kalibo from Manila and then hopping back on the plane via Manila to our next stop…
Third Stop: Palawan (12 days)
We have heard nothing but praise about this gorgeous slice of paradise.
From hiking, kayaking and snorkelling to relaxing and watching the waves roll in, Palawan seems to have it all.
We are going to head to exotic El Nido but apart from that, we will wait and see where the wind takes us.
We will also be celebrating my 23rd birthday here so I expect plenty of San Miguels and too much cake!
Final Stop: Manila (1 day)
And now back full circle. We will have a final night in Manila before heading off to Melbourne!
As my itinerary is so flexible I’d love to hear from you! Have you been to any of the places I’ve listed above? What did you enjoy when you were there? Let me know in the comments below or via my social media pages.
