7 Days During Typhoon Season

Heading to Philippines solo - female

Looking to get as much out of the trip as possible. Am ok to be go-go-go. Looking for adventure, culture, a general good time.

Have a total of 9 days (travel time will take off two days)

Thoughts on the locations/itinerary for my trip last week of July?

Thanks so much!!!

Banaue Rice Terraces, Bohol, Boracay are some of many I could suggest.

Have a read of the Top Questions to the right------------> as there are lots more ideas listed there.

co sign on Boracay or Bohol

I'd go to Boracay if you want to party

More chill time I'd go to Bohol

You can do like fist and last day in Manila and in between Bohol or Boracay

Avoid mountain regions.

Head for the beach in Visayas. Places like Bohol, Boracay and Palawan will be good, to name a few.

@ Celle

A general good time - I guarantee you will have it. Filipinos tend to be happy go lucky and they tend to smile a lot. They love foreigners, which is a good thing when you are one.

For culture - I would suggest spending a day or two in Vigan (Luzon) and Silay (Neg Occ). But do remember, Philippine sis a young country, and the above places date back to just 1500s.

Beaches - I second the above advice to visit Bohol and Boracay (in that order). Being an island nation, Philippines has hundreds of beautiful beaches.
