Honeymoon in Philippines


I am planning a 7 day trip to Philippines on our Honeymoon in Jan 2015.

1. We will be travelling from India on a moderate budget.

2. We are looking for a combination of things we can do. Beach + Nightlife + Nature(mountains/wildlife)

3. Based on my research, I definitely want to spend 1 day in Manila and 2 days in Boracay

Now, I am trying to figure out the best thing we can do in remaining 3 days. I was seriously considering El Nido(Puerto Princea) but Bohol seem to offer more variety of stuff (good beaches + wildlife + mountains)

Could you please help me decide what should I pick?

Thanks for helping out..

7 days is a short time to experience 3 destinations and 2 days in Boracay is IMHO not enough time.

As El Nido is more difficult to reach and if you dont fly using the only but expensive direct option from Manila ITI it could cost you a good part of 2 days in land travel(7 hrs+ by bus each way from PP). Based on your circumstances I would choose Bohol as it is more easier to reach and stay at Alona Beach.

You can fly to Bohol (Tagbilaran Airport) from Manila.

Out of the 7 days, you actually only have 5 days.

We will recommend you to spend a night in Manila before your flight back home. That will left you with 4 days.

So choose either Boracay or Bohol.

Hi Surbhi,

Welcome to the Phils.

1) I suggest giving at least 1 more day in Boracay - it will take 1-3 hours from your landign till you reach your resort in Boracay (with the short boat ride and trike / bus dependign upon where you land... Kalibo or Caticlan0

2) I would advise spending the remaining time in Bohol - nicer resorts, more activities, has conveniences like electricity, and is far more economical.
