Review of the travel itinerary to the Philippines: Between January and May 2018 we set out on a trip to Southeast Asia. Four months that would give a lot of themselves. The conmochila guides were especially useful in preparing our itineraries and organizing us. Then, we took more autonomy…..
We had already opened in Southeast Asia before, and had visited Thailand in 2013 and, in 2016, Vietnam and Siem Reap (in Cambodia), so the desire to continue exploring this corner of the world was enormous. Its traditions, gastronomy, people, history, even the political situation of each one…
The experience was enormous, and exceeded all our expectations. We were left with a lot to see, but what we saw filled us so much! So much diversity and contrast, not only with our house, but between all the countries we visit…
This was the total route we followed in Qatar: 2 days. Myanmar: 21 days. Laos: 17 days. Malaysia and Singapore: 24 days. Indonesia: 30 days Philippines: 28 days.
The Philippines was farewell, the last month of travel. The ancient terraces of Banaue left us speechless. The small and beautiful city of Vigan and its colonial houses pleasantly surprised us as we began to see that the Philippines is the “Latin” corner of Asia. A bit of route between islands of the Bisayas, Dumaguete in Negros and the small island of Apo, and its sea turtles. Siquijor and its power of attraction (which made us stay two days longer than planned, discarding Bohol from our plans). And the final finish of the Nest, in Palawan, which was the best finish we could expect from our four months in circles. With the pleasant epilogue of the Manila of Intramuros as a farewell day.
