Holy week in Philippines - any idea for our trip?

Dear all,

i'm going to philippines at the end of April (18-27).

Do you have any suggestions for our itinerary?

We are not much into diving..so we would like to have some island hopping and snorkeling..

Which parts should we skip/avoid because of the earthquake?

Thanks for your help!

Ciao,

Giulia

If you can even pre-book transport, it will be even better!

BEAUTIFUL CHURCHES IN DAVAO CITY, HOLY WEEK SPECIAL

Among the popular activities in the Philippines and other Christian countries during Holy Week is the Visita Iglesia, done during the Maundy Thursday. It is customary during this day to visit 7 different churches; some visit 14 churches that symbolize the 14 Stations of the Cross. Maundy Thursday also symbolizes the re-enactment of the Last Supper scene that depicts the last day before Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross.

Spend this long holiday weekend in a blessed and fruitful way. Here are 7 of the Beautiful Churches that you can visit in Davao City during the Holy Week:

Carmelite Church at J.P. Laurel Ave. Bajada, Davao City

Well Davao is not as busy during holy week as other places, so you can hit Samal or go to Mati for an interesting trip. And see the churches if you want, but I think you will miss it with your schedule.

Try Palawan. It's a perfect getaway for clear water beaches, white sand, island hopping and snorkling :)
