Hi! I am traveling to the Philippines for about 2 weeks with my 3 girlfriends. We are 26 years old and looking for a little bit of everything, but most importantly want to stay on a budget! We are thinking volcanoes, hiking, beach, and partying.
I also want to point out that we will be visiting during the Ati-Atihan festival, and want to partake in all the fun. I scuba dive (although the others don't) so would like to do some diving as well.
Below is my preliminary itinerary - please let me know what you think!
11-Jan Depart Thailand for Manila
12-Jan Manila - see city, go to Divisoria market, do a tour
13-Jan Day trip to Tagaytay
14-Jan Depart Manila to Borocay - $68 flight
17-Jan Drive to Kalibo
18-Jan Kalibo - Ati-Atihan Festival final day
19-Jan Depart Kalibo to Cebu - $21 flight
20-Jan Cebu - Diving
21-Jan Ferry ride to Bohol - Chocolate Mountains
23-Jan Cebu to Manila - $29 flight
We figured flying would be easiest but I just cannot believe how cheap it is ($21 flight?!) - are these safe flights? Is their a suitcase weight limit?
Thanks in advance!
