    DAYS TOUR ITINERARY
    Day 1: Manila – ArrivalLanding

    We’ll meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel in Manila. Manila is one of the oldest cities in Asia and capital of Philippines. With contradictions and surprises around every corner, the city is packed full of things to see, do, taste and experience. The rest of the day is free at leisure.

    Day 02: Manila – Tagaytay Taal Trekking (B/L)Tagaytay-City

The ridge provides a spectacular view of Taal Lake and Taal Volcanoo, whose crater houses another volcano known as “lake within a volcano”. Enjoy one of the most picturesque and attractive views in the Philippines and the refreshing mountain air. After lunch, we’ll proceed to tour other sites in Tagaytay City before proceeding back to Manila.

    Day 3: Bohol (B)bohol

    Today we’ll take the domestic Flight to Bohol, Bohol is the tenth largest island in the Philippines. This oval-shaped island has an area of 4,117 sq. km. and is located in the central portion of the Visayas lying between Cebu to the northwest and Leyte to the northeast. To its south is the big island of Mindanao which is separated from Bohol by the wide Mindanao Sea. Aside from the mainland, Bohol has 61 smaller offshore islands and islets. Bohol is about 700 kilometers directly south of Manila and is about 70 kilometers southeast of Cebu City.

    The people of Bohol are said to be descendants of the last group of inhabitants who settled in the Philippines called Pintados (the tattooed ones). Before the Spaniards arrived in 1521, Boholanos already had a culture of their own as evidenced by the artifactsdug at Mansasa, Tagbilaran, and in Dauis and Panglao using designs during the Ming dynasty (960-1279). The name Bohol is thought to be derived from the name of the barrio of Bo-ol, a barangay found in Tagbilaran City which was among the first places toured by the Magellan expedition.

A few kilometers away is the centuries-old Baclayon church with its impressive carved wooden altars built during the Spanish regime.

    En route to Chocolate Hills, one drives through the lush man-made forest of the towns of Loboc and Bilar planted with Mahogany and endemic trees. The highlight of the entire trip is a 50-minute Loboc river cruise on board a motorized catamaran boat. A sumptuous lunch of local cuisine is served while the guests are enjoying the beautiful scenery along the Riverbanks—Verdant rolling hills, cliffs, trees and coconuts that recline in the river.
