Tips from the community

Let’s put it this way: no backpacker jaunt through the Philippines could possibly be complete without a pitstop in Palawan. Like a long finger pointing westwards through the Sulu Sea, this one is unlike anywhere else in Southeast Asia. El Nido is the star of the show. A lively town on the north shore, it’s considered a scuba and snorkeling paradise. Hop on a day-long boat trip and you’ll find yourself swimming in the company of curious jellies, bulging brain corals, and zebrafish! The hidden beaches of Port Barton are also worth checking. They’re chilled and chalk white, with hammocks and bamboo bars galore.
