9-Day Philippines Heritage & Natural Wonders Tour to Luzon Highlands & Puerto Princesa Islands
See the beauty of Luzon’s highlands and islands with this 9-day vacation package. This tour will take you to the historical Intramuros in Manila, the scenic sights of Luzon's highlands, and the world-renowned attractions in Palawan. This package is perfect for travelers wanting a hassle-free trip.
After arriving at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, you will first explore the highlight of the City of Manila, Intramuros. This walled city is home to several well-preserved heritage sites that date back to the Spanish colonial period.
From Manila, you will fly to Laoag Airport on Day 2 to enjoy a day tour of Ilocos. Occupying the northwestern section of Luzon, this region is known for its myriad of historical sites, including the cobbled streets of Calle Crisologo in Vigan. Take your time walking along this famed road and admiring the old Spanish houses.
Prepare your jackets as you make your way to the mountain towns of Sagada and Banaue next. Both belonging to the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), these towns are popular destinations for their heritage sites and cool weather.
You will also enjoy lower temperatures at Baguio City, where you will explore its attractions for a day. Among the places you will visit is Camp John Hay, a former US military base and now a tourist destination and forest watershed reservation.
From Baguio, you will be taken to Tarlac for a quick trek up the popular Mt. Pinatubo. This active volcano features a crater lake at the top with remarkable colors that will leave visitors in awe.
For your seventh and eighth day, you will head further south to the island of Palawan. Here, you will enjoy an island-hopping tour in Honda Bay and a river cruise along the Underground River before heading back to Manila to end your 9-day escapade.
