Manila, Luzon

Pearl of the Orient

The capital of the Philippines and the "Pearl of the Orient," Manila truly resembles a gem: rough on the outside, but glittering within.
On the 12th (Mon), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Agustin Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Manila Cathedral, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Manila Bay. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 13th (Tue): take a stroll through Intramuros, then look for gifts at SM Mall of Asia, and then contemplate the long history of Fort Santiago.

Plan my day in Manila using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Rome, Italy to Manila is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. Traveling from Rome to Manila, you'll lose 7 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Rome in February, with highs in Manila at 36°C and lows at 27°C. On the 14th (Wed), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to El Nido.

Heaven on Earth

The coastal region of El Nido includes a mainland area of jungle, beaches, and cliffs, as well as 45 limestone islands and islets.
You'll get in some beach time at Nacpan Beach and Secret Lagoon Beach. Step out of El Nido with an excursion to Fort Santa Isabel in Taytay--about 1h 30 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Small Lagoon, enjoy the sand and surf at Ipil Beach, stroll through Marimegmeg Beach, and head off the coast to Snake Island (Vigan Island).

Pearl of the Orient Seas
Encompassing over 7,600 islands, the Philippines offer plenty of vacation ideas for active travelers. Though the island chain's location leaves it vulnerable to typhoons and earthquakes, it also endows it with plenty of natural resources and biodiversity. For most visitors, a Philippines holiday includes outdoor adventures like kitesurfing, mountain trekking, spelunking, and volcano hiking. Those with a taste for something more relaxing can build a Philippines itinerary around beaches, local fiestas, and the island cuisine, which blends influences from around the world and serves up dishes at once sour, salty, and sweet.
