Day 16 | The Philippines Photos
Cooling off in Singapore, figuratively of course, allowed me to prepare for the next phase of my journey through SE Asia which was taking me to the Philippines to meet up with another friend, Jessica. I had originally planned on doing the Philippines alone as well, but Jess hit me up last minute to tag along and I was more than willing to share the experience with her. We started our journey through the land of a thousand islands in Cebu City, but we tried to spend as little time there as possible. The city is a little seedy, and this was Jess’s first experience with Asia so I wanted to find her a beach STAT. We jetted off to Palawan on day 2 and headed straight for El Nido. From there, we spent a few days exploring Coron Island and the town of Coron, before taking a 15 hour ferry back to Manila and renting a car. We drove through the south of Luzon to Tagaytay, and ending up in Lipa at a wedding in a country club. Not sure how we managed that, but like they say, it’s always more fun in the Philippines.
