Philippines Group Tours for Solo Travellers
Travel solo as part of a group tour to the Philippines
Why travel solo to the Philippines?
When you think of this ellipsis-like archipelago in South East Asia, one word springs to mind: escapism…
With more than 7,000 islands to choose from in the Philippines, your inner beach-lover is, quite simply, spoilt for choice. Volcanic, lagoon-rich, deserted, quilted in rainforest… Name your kind of island and the Philippines will deliver.
Not sure where to start? Our group Philippines adventure will take you to Palawan, Cebu and Bohol, with an island-hopping boat trip thrown in for good measure, too. Nearly a fortnight of sun, sea and white-sand beaches – with sandside barbecues and sunsets to savour. Who says the Philippines are only for honeymooners? Not Flash Pack…
Top places to visit in the Philippines
Manila is a tale of two cities: a skyscraper-soared Asian metropolis and a baroque old town, known as Intramuros, harking back to the colonial era. The result is a capital richly layered with Tagalog and Spanish heritage.
The archipelago of Palawan is home to a series of karsts, coves and white-sand beaches. On our trip, you’ll dive into this landscape of marbled lagoons, untouched rainforest and vibrant underwater life – the perfect antidote to city living.
The Chocolate Hills
Situated on Bohol Island, the Chocolate Hills are a unique geological phenomenon; think little bare mounds peeking out of the rainforest like piles of sifted cocoa. You’ll explore this area by quad-bike on our Philippine adventure.
With unique topography and unspoilt beaches, Bohol is the sort of serene island getaway that’ll have you forgetting about home in no time. Leafy jungle, coral reefs and rich marine wildlife all provide plenty of opportunities for adventure here.
