We are four young ladies (22-23 years old) looking at going to the phillipines for a holiday over the new years period. We would arrive in manila from New Zealand around 28th December and go back to NZ on 11th Jan.
We are fun loving and adventurous girls who just want to explore the phillipines as much as we can whilst also getting some well needed relaxing time. We like to party (so obviously new years in Boracay is our plan) but we also like nature, history and some adventure activities. Two of us are well travelled and the other two have not been to asia before.
We have decided to skip Manila and just go to our first destination.
At the moment our plan looks like:
28th Dec- 1st Jan: Boracay
1st Jan- 5th Jan: either Palawan, Bohol or Cebu
5th Jan-11th Jan: either Palawan, Bohol or Cebu
11th Jan: Manila - NZ
We are attracted to palawan for the snorkelling, scenery and underground river. We are attracted to Cebu for the churches and spainish influnce. We are attracted to Bohol for the chocolate mountains, tarsier and nature.
Can anyone recommend to us what the best intinerary for us? Are we missing a destination that would be even better for us?
I should mention that we will be on a bit of a budget and plan on flying between these destinations but wonder how much travelling from place to place is too much.
Any advice would be great. We want to start booking some flights in the next couple of days.
