Here comes a deal for real adventurers! Step off the beaten tourist paths and discover Papua New Guinea! Fly to both Philippines and Papua New Guinea in one trip for only £530!
Traveling in Papua New Guinea can be challenging. With almost no tourism infrastructure and limited information available in books and on websites, it can feel like you’re stepping into the great unknown. But this is exactly why travelers find this country so compelling.
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.
The Philippines have been a Spanish colony for about 330 years. Roman Catholicism is the dominant religion and local currency is peso. You’ll see the striking contrasts of cultures – Malay, Islamic, Spanish, Chinese and American. The Filipino people, who speak more than 150 languages and dialects, are some of the friendliest and hospitable nations in the world!
There are hundreds of colourful festivals held throughout the country. Many of those fiestas are tied to the Roman Catholic calendar. Ati-Atihan Festival, a week-long street party in Kalibo, is the local mardi gras, peaking on the third Sunday of January.
Another local tradition is controversial Crucifixion re-enactment, held every Good Friday, as part of the local observance of Holy Week. Near the end of the Lenten season hundreds of Filipinos walk through the streets carrying heavy wooden crosses and whipping their backs until they bleed in imitation of Jesus Christ's passion and death.
