Philippines

Emerald waters, stunning cliffs, wide-eyes tarsiers and beaches for days, this truly is a paradise on Earth.

Best time to visit

Best time to visit the Philippines is from November to April. The dry and rainy seasons are opposite on each side so plan accordingly.

Money saving tips

My best saving tips are to rent a motorbike on each island you go to, learn to love rice and opt for ferries instead of inbound flights.

Suggested budget

The daily suggested budget for the Philippines is $40-100 USD, assuming you stay in a mid-range hotel, eating out a little and rent a motorbike.

Favourite thing to do

A true paradise on earth, for me, was Siquijor. The island is absolutely stunning and has some amazing waterfalls and white sandy beaches.

Philippines

Emerald waters, stunning cliffs, wide-eyes tarsiers and beaches for days, this truly is a paradise on Earth. The Philippines, an archipelagic country in South East Asia prides itself on amazing beaches, beautiful nature and interesting wildlife. It is a country comprised of over 7600 islands and is so diverse; it is impossible to only create one truth or travel guide which applies to all islands. During our month of travels in the Philippines, we visited Cebu, Siquijor, Bohol, Siargao, Coron and Palawan. I’ve created lots of Philippines itinerary posts, things to do on each island and even highlighted my favorite things on them. This Philippines travel guide is a mix of Philippines facts in general and the travels from these 6 (very popular) islands.
