Manila is a city you won’t forget – its beating heart resonating throughout its frantic, compelling and sometimes bewildering landscape. It is a chaotic metropolis. Skyscrapers pierce the sky, shantytowns line the rivers, gleaming malls sit alongside urban parks offering a selection of fusion dining and Spanish tapas restaurants.
Dig below the surface to discover a creative arts scene combined with a penchant for artisan markets and a desire to enjoy life. From Manila we fly to Tagbilaran and the contrast couldn’t be more different. An island in the province of Bohol, Tagbilaran is home to the Chocolate Hills, tarsiers, white sandy beaches, dive spots, heritage sites and old stone churches. Take a tricycle around its ancient streets and admire unhindered views from its seapot across the azure ble ocean.
