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.
After Breakfast, we’ll take a scenic 55 kilometers drive to the city of Tagaytay City which sits on the Tagaytay Ridge that is 2,100 feet above sea level. 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.
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 artifacts dug 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.
Enjoy the whole day trip that showcases the province’s history, culture and its unspoiled nature, this tour starts in the city towards east starting with historic Blood Compact Commemorative Shrine. 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.
Today we’ll take the domestic flight to Cebu, “the Queen of the South” and is the oldest city established by the Spanish during colonial times. The rest of the day is free to start exploring the beautiful streets of Cebu. Do some last minute shopping. Eat up a storm. Book a complete spa package. Just enjoy.
After Breakfast, we’ll proceed to city tour; Visit Fort San Pedro, the oldest triangular fortress in the country that served as the nucleus for the first Spanish settlement. Proceed to the Magellan's Cross that Ferdinand Magellan ordered Portuguese and Spanish explorers to erect, marking the beginning of Christianity in the Philippines. We’ll then marvel at the Spanish colonial houses including Basilicia Minore del Santo Nino, that houses the oldest religious relic in the Philippines, and the Gorordo Museum, once used to be the residential home of Cebu's wealthiest families. Next stop will then take you to the impressive Taoist Temple, located at Beverly Hills overlooking the city of Cebu and Mactan Island.
