It has been a while since I’ve been to the Philippines – 2013 if I’m not mistaken. Eight years forward, here I go trekking the mountainous and beach-laden island of the Philippines, again; And I have an itinerary – Manila, Palawan, Cebu, and Boracay. Come explore the beautiful Philippines with me in this article – 2021 Philippine Vacation.
The Philippines is a country by the equator just below Taiwan, to the right of Vietnam, and directly above Indonesia. It is made up of approximately 7,600+ islands with beautiful sand beaches, mountainous treks, and luscious coconut trees. The currency used is Philippine Peso at a rate of about 50 PHP = $1 USD. Its people are known as Filipinos, who are also known for having a conservative culture and a high respect for the elders.
My 2021 Philippine Travel Vacation Itinerary
I will be visiting the Philippines in January of 2021 and below is the detail of my itinerary. It will be 2 weeks long where I will be coming from Seattle, USA.
From Seatac Airport (January 28, 2021) we will be arriving to NAIA (January 29, 2021) Manila. This will be an approximately 20 hours of flight time. We will be staying at BSA Twin Towers in a two-bedroom suite if possible. I chose BSA Twin Towers because it’s just across SM Megamall which I really am dying to visit. It’s also close by Robinson’s Galleria and St. Francis Square, as well as Greenhills Shopping Mall.
I also plan to visit relatives in Pasig City whom I will treat with my mom by dining out on Saturday or Sunday of that week (January 30 or 31, 2021). After which,the morning or afternoon of February 1st, me, my boyfriend, my mom and her boyfriend will fly to Palawan to visit Coron.
From NAIA, we will land to Coron, Palawan on February 1st and stay there until February 3rd – 3 days and 2 nights. We will be doing a private tour – island hopping and then the remainder of the stay will be for relaxing.
On the third day, we will fly to Cebu for our next itinerary.
From Palawan, we will go to Cebu and stay there from February 3rd to the 5th; A stay of 3 days and 2 nights again just like the one in Palawan.
From Cebu, we will go to our last itinerary – Boracay!
The main event of my travel is Boracay which is why this is the last itinerary for my Philippine 2021 travel except or excluding Manila again.
After all the escapades, me and my group will head back to Manila to fly back to Seattle.
