Amazing 2 in 1! Visit both the Philippines and Papua New Guinea in one trip from London for only £544!
There are plenty of reasons to visit the Philippines! This amazing destination offers pretty much everything you need: the world class beaches, awesome conditions for water sports, stunning mountains and volcanoes, along with caves and rice terraces to explore.
Head to Legazpi, in the south of Luzon Island, to see the perfect cone of the majestic Mayon Volcano (2,463 m) and the ruins of Cagsawa Church. 460 km north from Manila, you’ll find Banaue village, surrounded by rice fields of Batad. Going up and down the rice terraces in this breath-taking scenery is a truly unique experience! The fields were introduced around 2000 years ago by the Chinese.
In Bohol island, near Cebu, you’ll see the weirdest landscapes ever! The plain is dotted with more than 1260 so-called Chocolate Hills. In the dry season, the grass-covered geological formations turn chocolate brown. On the island of Bohol there’s also a tarsier sanctuary where you can come face to face with the world's smallest primate!
With its complex cultures and almost no tourism infrastructure, Papua New Guinea is a destination for real adventurers! Step off the beaten tourist paths and discover the striking natural beauty of this unknown country in Oceania.
The local people are culturally diversified, with rich and unique traditions. You can enjoy fascinating tribal gatherings and cultural events. Attend the festivals such as the The Sing-Sing performances at the annual Goroka and Mt. Hagen shows. In Ambunti on the Sepik River you can take part in The Crocodile Festival (Pukpuk Show).
Visit a lively village and get to know the PNG culture. Discover local markets for a friendly and authentic PNG experience. Purchase handicrafts from traditional artists. For example, in the Tufi area you can buy tapa cloth made from mulberry bark.
