A visit to the Chocolate Hills – These weird, round, lumpy hills are green in the rainy season and go brown in the dry season, looking like lumps of chocolate. In this area we will also see the world’s smallest monkeys, the Tarsier. Well known for their great big eyes, they sit in the trees snacking on small insects flying by
Spend a full day out on the water, hoping between islands, snorkelling with tropical fish AND swimming with the amazing whale sharks
A shopping trip – Enjoy a stroll through the markets and shop up a storm on our last day in Manila
Farewell cocktails on our last evening together
Plenty of free time to relax, swim in the ocean, explore the local markets, get pampered or arrange an optional activity (with our help)
Xena (founder of SWTT) as your host
What's the plan?
DAY 1 – Airport transfer to our hotel. Free time to chill or head out and explore before our welcome dinner where you will meet your new friends.
DAY 2 – After breakfast we take a transfer to the airport and catch our flight to Bohol. Checking in at our gorgeous beachfront hotel for the next 3 nights. Enjoy a free afternoon.
DAY 3 – Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the hotel and then we have a free day. Perhaps soak up the beach vibes or enjoy a massage at the hotel (for only $15 per hour!!)
DAY 4 – After breakfast we are heading out for the day to explore the island, visit the chocolate hills and see the cute little tarsiers (the worlds smallest monkeys). If you are feeling super adventurous you can also join Xena and bike across a wire rope amongst the rolling hills (don’t worry you will be safely strapped in & held in place!).
DAY 5 – Enjoy your last breakfast here before we take a boat ride to our next tropical paradise. Arriving in Siquijor we will be transferred to our new home for the next 3 nights. Enjoy a free afternoon.
DAY 6 – Sleep in and enjoy breakfast when you rise. Today is a free day. Perhaps head out to explore with your new friends, or relax & get pampered… or join me at the beach for a cocktail or two.
DAY 7 – After breakfast we head out for a day on the water. Hoping between islands, snorkelling with colourful tropical fish and one of the HUGE highlights, swimming with the whale sharks and seeing them up close.
DAY 8 – After breakfast we will take a boat transfer to our last island, Dumaguete. Checking in for 2 nights at this luxury resort, prepare to be amazed. Afternoon is free to explore or chill.
DAY 9 – Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the hotel and then we have our last free day in the islands. Head off to explore, swim at the beach or just enjoy all that this resort has to offer.
DAY 10 – After breakfast we will transfer to the airport for a morning flight back to Manila. Once we arrive we will drop our bags at the hotel and head out to shop till we drop & explore the local markets (shopping here is GOOD!!).
