Palawan, Philippines


Philippines – Things to do

Philippines Attractions

You’ll find something utterly seductive about this collection of 7,000 islands. If its idyllic beaches don’t do it for you, we’re sure the wondrous scenery of emerald rice fields carved into the hillside will. You won’t want to miss the walled city of Intramuros, in the capital, Manila – home of Fort Santiago and the 17th Century San Agustin Church. And once you’ve ridden with the locals on a colourful jeepney, we’re sure you’ll be hooked.

Island of Palawan

With its aquamarine lagoons and limestone cliffs, you’re going to find Palawan just magical. As you float along the underground river near Puerto Princesca, look out for monitor lizards, turtles and all sorts of tropical fish.

Banaue Rice Terraces

Banaue rice terraces

You’ll be glad you made the journey from Manila to the mountains of Ifugao when you arrive in spectacular Banaue. Its dramatic rice terraces were created some 2,000 years ago and were named the 8th Wonder of the World.
