Mabuhay! Welcome to the Philippines!
The Palawan Islands Group Tour starting in Manila and ending in Coron, in 10 days you will explore the bustling nightlife in Manila, snorkel in crystal clear waters, camp on the beach under the stars, discover the Filipino culture and enjoy the best sunsets of your life.
Meet the locals, kayak through caves, enjoy endless beers and sunsets on the beach and the best part is that you’ll be doing it all with a group of like-minded travellers – so if you are planning to travel solo, no need to worry as 90% of travellers that join us do so solo as well! If this trip sounds great but you’re looking for something even longer, you may like to check out our 16-day Philippines Island-Hopping Tour or you can let us design the perfectCustom Philippines Itinerary for you.
Manila Arrival Information
Our tour starts at 6 pm at Z Hostel in Makati on day 1 of the tour. You should fly into Manila airport which is approximately a 45-minute taxi ride from Z Hostel (depending on traffic). If your flight will arrive after 5 PM, it’s best to arrive on the day before the start date. We can arrange your accommodation for the night before if needed. Extra nights will be approx. $40AUD per night.
After Do the Palawan Islands
This Palawan Islands tour finishes on the beautiful island of Coron. If you’re staying on longer in the Philippines, your group leader can help organise all of your onward travel, including any of our add-on packages. If you’re just doing the Palawan tour and then going home and need to get back to Manila, then it’s a short van ride to the airport (our tour leader can organise this for you too) and a 1 hour 45-minute flight to Manila. There are a few direct flights per day from Coron to Manila. We can also organise the flight back for you. There is an option to add this to your booking on the “optional extras page”. If you have any more questions about this, please feel free to contact us.
