Hello fellow travellers so planning to spend about a month in the Philippines. Just wondered what a rough route would be I already have a few places that I would like to go to but needed some help working out what way around I should go and where to start. Thanks guys :)

i went to boracay and palawan in march and 1 thing i will say is that you pretty much need to fly in between most places, and most are either via manila or cebu

you can take boats but they are quite long journeys and i hated the 1 from el nido to coron

i would try and do as much research as you can, but 1 thing i can tell you is that its an amazing place, my favourite ive been so far

Yeah that's what I seem to be finding out is flying expensive ? Thank for the advise :)

Flights are not too expensive, I used cebu Pacific and airasia, cheapest for a 1 way flight was around £20, but they do have offer on quite regularly

1 thing to keep in mind is the airport taxes at most airports which you have to pay, not a lot of money but something to keep in mind

Oh what's that for ? That's not to bad then , don't think il spend long in Phillips tbh . Excited to get to Indonesia

its something they introduced recently, little strange as not been anywhere else that does it, and cost me £10 when i left manila to fly back to the uk

some are only like £2, with the most being about £10, but its only when your fly out from an airport, never when you arrive

8 only spent 9 days there so wasnt to bad really. Indonesia is on my list for next year
