Philippines

Manila and beaches.

On July 18th my journey continued to the Philippines. I took Philippine Airlines flight 431 departing from Tokyo at 9:30a.m. and arriving at the Manila airport at 1:10p.m, for a total flight time of around four hours and forty minutes. All together the flight cost me $1,050.00 Canadian. Landing in Manila, I was surrounded by city life.
But I always heard about how amazing the beaches were in the Philippines so I mad it my goal to use this one location, not to site see, but to just relax and enjoy my surroundings. I found the hotel Pan Pacific Manila and decided that I would relax in my room and head out the following days. After asking around, I was told multiple times about the beaches on island Boracay. So I decided to pay a little amount to take a boat ride over. Once I got there the beach was beautiful. I enjoyed myself so much, I went sail boating and scuba diving. After all my running around from the previous weeks I felt like a couple of relaxing days on the most amazing beach that ive ever seen is exactly what I needed. But then my wanderlust took over and I was just itching to get going.

Hi there !

Happy to see you enjoyed Boracay ! I'd still suggest you to visit some other nice spots in here next time you come. You should definitely walk through the magnificient Banaue Rice Terraces, snorkel in the crystal clear water of Bohol or even conquer the summit of Mt. Pulag and watch both sunset & sunrise above the clouds ! You can have a look there : http://blog.rdv-voyage.com Hope you'll enjoy !
