Take a break from the daily toils of everyday life by embarking on your own backpacking adventure at these locations from around the country!
For a more mystic feel to your journey, spend some time in the country’s own version of Shangri-La. Pay a visit to its famous hanging coffins and the Lumiang Burial Cave, go spelunking at the Semaguing Cave (with a guide!), refresh at the Bomod-Ok Waterfalls, or simply take in the view from the Kiltepan Viewpoint.
El Nido, Palawan
This strip of paradise exemplifies why the country is known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient Sea’. Whether it’s scuba diving or snorkeling through the rich, diverse marine ecosystem; riding the waves at Mike’s Point; island hopping through its many gorgeous beaches and lagoons; or simply lazing about the white sandy beach… El Nido is a must for every beach-lover.
Last but not least, a visit to what many consider the safest city in the country. Marvel at the majestic creatures from the Crocodile Farm and the Philippine Eagle Center; hike up the rigorous Mount Apo; learn a thing or two from D’Bone Collector Museum; and if you’re feeling extra daring, a food trip on Davao’s exotic delicacies (Durians… Durians everywhere!)
