Great opportunity to enjoy the fantastic beaches of the Philippines and the exotic nature of Borneo! With this trip from Geneva you will visit Manila, Palawan, Cebu, Philippines and Tawau, the gateway to Sipadan Island, Sarawak and Sabah, in Malaysian Borneo!
In the Philippines you will meet some of the happiest and friendliest people in the world, feel the sea breeze and hear the sound of crashing waves as you lay on a swinging hammock. This amazing destination offers pretty much everything you need: from the world class beaches to sunbathe, stunning mountains to hike, awesome waves to surf, 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!
