I am currently back to reality and sorting out all my photos of our month in the Philippines and I have quite a few blog posts to write. While you wait for me to get my arse in gear, here are a few postcards from the Philippines, and just like the ACTUAL postcards I wrote in the Philippines, I’m sending them from China, oops!
A stunning little coastal town with lots to offer. Here you can swim with thousands of sardines, go canyoning through beautiful landscapes or simply chill out on a beach with a beer/cocktail in hand.
A place made famous because of the opportunity to swim with whale sharks. You can also visit a tiny, but gorgeous island called Sumilon – perfect sandy beaches and cyrstal clear waters.
We stopped off at this seaside town on our way back to Cebu City, here you can climb the highest peak in Cebu, Osmeña. From the top you will get a picturesque view of the Cebu countryside.
General Luna, Siargao
A Filipino surfers paradise. We spent a week here, chilling, getting caught in a cyclone and driving around the countryside on a moped.
Port Barton, Palawan
A small village often bypassed on the way to El Nido from Puerto Princess. This place is seriously laid-back and we loved our time here. Exploring the nearby beaches and island hopping are the two main activities to do here.
A place highly recommended by absolutely everyone and boy did it deliver. We spent our time island hopping to some incredibly beautiful places. Despite getting food poisoning we enjoyed our time here. If you visit Coron make sure you walk to the top of Mt. Tapyas for sunset, it’s worth the effort.
El Nido, Palawan
In case you haven’t spent enough time island hopping you can jump aboard a number of boats all heading somewhere with sandy beaches and fish to snorkel with. We chose tour A and then spent the rest of our time on a moped (our favourite thing to do) exploring.
