If tropical beaches combined with an abundance of natural and cultural attractions sounds like your kind of holiday, this suggested itinerary could be the perfect choice. Begin your trip with two nights in the capital of the Philippines, Manila. Take a horse and carriage ride around Intramuros, the old walled part of the city to soak up the history and colonial architecture. Afterwards take the short flight to tropical Bohol island. Here you can alternate your time between lazy days on unspoilt powder-soft beaches and exploring the many natural attractions. Take a cruise down the Loboc River, visit the Tarsier Research Sanctuary, view the Chocolate Hills and enjoy snorkelling off nearby islands.
