Travelling the Philippines – the perfect itinerary

The Philippines is comprised of over 7000 islands. This raises the question where one should go. Travelling the Philippines, though fun, is not as straight-forward as in Vietnam or Thailand, where the main choice is North to South or vice versa. One has to…

Sablayan (Mindoro)

In Southern Mindoro lies a place with a beautiful landscape, white sandy beaches and the biggest Atoll-Reef in the world: Sablayan. The small city situated 6 hours away from Puerto Galera also has tourism sector that is in the process of being developed. This…

Puerto Galera (Mindoro)

South of the Luzon, about 5 hours from Manila, lies the Mindoro, an island that is visited by only few western tourists. Nonetheless, it has everything to offer what you could wish for in the Philippines: white beaches, romantic islets, corral reefs and a…

Palawan has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines. While most backpackers are naturally drawn towards the scenic islets and majestic lime stone rocks of El Nido, going to Puerto Princesa in the south has a few advantages: It is…

Bohol in one day

Siquijor

Moalboal is a relatively small town. It is very rare to wake up from traffic. Rather your sleep will get disturbed by roosters at 4 AM. However, the place is already very touristic, and with that comes a lot of travellers. I wanted to…
