I have never been to a place quite so beautiful. If you have never been lucky enough to visit the Philippines, I hope this blog post persuades you because WOW, it is something else.
DAY 1: ARRIVING IN EL NIDO
I was travelling in Australia when I booked the Philippines, it’s a great place to stopover on the way back to the UK and somewhere that I had heard a lot about. It was definitely on the travel list of places that I wanted to visit.
Flying from Sydney to Manila was the cheapest and easiest route to take for me. I decided to stay in Manila for the night so that I could catch a morning flight to Puerto Princessa which is the largest airport on the island of Palawan in the morning.
TIP in Manila: Grab app is the same as Uber and is super cheap. You can access the app in any large Cities in the Philippines. Cash payment or you can top up on the app.
Once arriving in Manila you can catch a van to El Nido which is a 5/6 hour drive (500 peso equivalent to £7.30 per person)
TIP: There are flights from Manila to El Nido but usually have to book them quite far in advance because they get fully booked.
