Philippine Discovery Summary

Day 1 Manila

An intriguing, bustling and overwhelmingly chaotic city, Manila is packed full of things to see, do, taste and experience.

Day 2 Banaue

Often touted as the 'Eighth Wonder of the World', the quaint town of Banaue is home to stunning rice terraces that appear to stretch like stepping-stones to the heavens.

Days 3-5 Trekking

Trek through forests and rice fields to local Ifugao villages where the local people are still farming the way their ancestors did 2000 years ago.

Days 6-7 Sagada

Fresh mountain air and stunning views await in the village of Sagada, where the locals retain their traditional way of life in tranquil surroundings.

Day 8 Baguio

High in the Cordillera Mountains, the bustling urban centre of Baguio offers town comforts and a welcome respite from the heat of the lowlands.

Day 9 Mt Pinatubo

An active volcano which experienced a massive eruption in 1991, Mt Pinatubo's photogenic crater lake is a popular trekking destination.

Days 10-11 Manila

Finish up this Filipino adventure back in the mega-city of Manilla. Why not gather the group and head out for a final dinner to reflect back on the highlights of this enthralling journey.
