Siargao is indeed a popular surfer town, but what a lot of people don’t know is that one of the main attractions of this province is the Sohoton Natural Park. Located in the south of the province, the park features a 60-meter long tunnel passable only by boat during the low tide season. Within, you can discover the Hagukan Cave or the Diving Cave.

How to get there: You can take Philippine Airlines’ direct flights from Clark to Siargao starting July 1, 2018. Van transfers from Sayak Domestic Airport are available going to General Luna where Cloud 9 is.

Bohol has a way of drawing you into its embrace. Aside from the popular Chocolate Hills, there are a whole lot of things to explore in this famed island. Visit Anda Beach and enjoy its white and powdery sand. Another spot to visit is the Cabagnow Cave Pool located in the outskirts of Anda. With its rich blue waters that go as deep as 12 feet, it’s worth taking a dip (or a dive) in the cave pool.


How to get there: Catch a plane from Manila to Bohol (Tagbilaran). Upon arrival at the airport, you may hail a trike going to Dao Bus Terminal. From there, take a bus or van to the town of Anda.
