Recommended for families who want to learn and explore through leisurely adventures at a comfortable pace
You’ve landed in Manila! You’ll be welcomed and brought to your hotel by your guides, who will also go through with you the details of your upcoming excursion.
On your second day, you will depart for the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm. Take a tour around this Farm Village University and learn how the community thrives and makes their sustainable living. Beat the afternoon heat at the pool before having home-cooked dinner with a local family in the village.
Take inspiration from students from all walks of life, who are creating & innovating the future through social entrepreneurship. Join them for their daily routine of tending to their portion of the farm. Wind down after a day in the dirt, and have dinner made from the farm’s harvest.
It’s time to say goodbye to the farm and head to the beach in Zambales. Watch the sky change from a firey sunset to a starry blanket. Rest well for tomorrow’s adventure with a unique comfortable camping experience.
Step off the tourist trail and come with us to meet the Aeta community in Yangil. They will welcome you like you are family; share their culture, their food; sing, dance, laugh and play games with you. We, in turn, will share our time and lend our hands in their reforestation efforts.
Spend the morning exploring a different island. Then, you have the rest of the day to lay & play in the sun, or learn how to surf the waves.
Head to the airport for the next part of your journey. Catch your flight to Bohol and head to your hotel in Panglao, which is famous for its stunning white sand beaches. There’ll be plenty of time to lay on the sand and enjoy the ocean; take a well-worth afternoon trip to check out local products and tasty treats at Bohol Bee Farm.
Marvel at the extraordinary landscape that put Bohol on the map– the Chocolate Hills. Enjoy the view from atop one of these hills and see them up close on quad bikes! After that, flow down the river two ways: on a boat for a scrumptious lunch cruise, and on stand-up paddle boards.
Early call time for a day of discovering the beauty of Pamilacan Island and its surrounding waters. If you’re lucky, you’ll see dolphins during your boat ride. Mingle with the locals, explore the reefs, and meet some of the resident turtles.
You have the day to do as you please. Laze by the hotel pool, or find your way around the island- there’s lots to do! Visit churches, spot a Tarsier, or just enjoy being outdoors.
Time to visit the Gawad Kalinga community at Maribojoc. This village may not be wealthy, but they live abundantly and happily despite the trials that have come their way, sharing their stories & smiles with visitors like us. Lend your hand in the kitchen, learn how to cook a local dish, and feel right at home. In the evening, you’ll be experiencing something truly magical. Jump on kayaks and witness fireflies light up your path on the river.
Another town, another island! Proceed to Siquijor where you’ll find enchantment in waterfalls and a centuries-old tree.
From Siquijor, you can take a tour of Apo Island (part of its neighbor Dumaguete but easily accessible from here), where you can discover the abundant life underwater, and swim with sea turtles.
Time to make the journey back. Board a boat to Dumaguete where the airport is. From there, you’ll fly to Manila then head home..
