Often called the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, Manila offers an intriguing blend of Spanish and Asian culture melded uniquely together by colonialism. Spend the day soaking in the rich Filipino heritage, winding it up with a novel dinner surrounded by priceless artworks in an actual ancestral home. (Overnight at hotel in Manila.

Fly to El Nido - Pangulasian Island Resort

After breakfast, head to the Manila airport for your flight to El Nido – the gateway to explore the beautiful Bacuit archipelago off the pristine Palawan island. Upon arrival at the airport, you take a 10 to 15-minute club car ride to the El Nido Resorts Jetty Lounge followed by a 30-45-minute boat ride to Pangulasian Island. Check into the Pangulasian Island Resort and over the next three days lose yourself in a world of lush jungles and impossibly blue waters. Situated on El Nido’s Bacuit Bay, against a backdrop of a tropical forest, Pangulasian is rimmed by 820 yards of blinding-white sands and offers breathtaking views of both the sunrise and the sunset.

Admire the view as you fly over spectacular mountain ranges and turquoise seas on your way. Amanpulo, which means ‘peace island’, is an exquisitely lush oasis of tranquility. Spend your days in blissful solitude on a hammock under a palm tree or set off into the shimmering Sulu Sea in search of gorgeous coral reefs and abundant marine life.
