Southern Philippines Palawan Adventure
SAVE UP TO 10% on this tour

It would take several lifetimes to explore the 6,000-plus islands that make up the Philippine Archipelago, but since youve only got one to spare, spend it in the South. A haven for sunbathers and spelunkers alike, the Southern Philippines are a thrill to discover both above ground and under. Blessed with miles of pristine, uncrowded beaches, intriguing caves, and the two-tiered Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, the Palawan province is perfect for travellers eager to try their hand at a variety of experiences in an underexplored part of Southeast Asia. Looking for something different? Youll find plenty of it here.
