During the day you can get involved with high-energy sports like kite surfing or windsurfing, or venture below the surface on a guided scuba dive.

Romantic city adventure in Manila
Manila is a very busy and chaotic city, so it wouldn’t be everyone’s choice for a dream honeymoon vacation. However, as with any big metropolis, there are countless hidden gems to discover. To begin with, you can’t find better cuisine anywhere else in the country. There is also a lively arts and music scene, as well as exciting nightlife. Our exclusive tours catalog features the many ways couples can enjoy this great city.
There are many romantic hotels in Manila, typically in the quieter areas. Countless high-end hotels face Manila bay, where lovers can enjoy the a beautiful sunset. We can also arrange a yacht cruise with a candlelit dinner and a fireworks display.
Although it’s exciting to experience the vibrancy of Manila, its chaotic side might begin to grate after a few days. Most couples would surely opt for a quieter environment, at least for part of their honeymoon. Luckily, there are many beautiful places just a short distance from the city. You may wish to share your time between city tours and a visit to some more remote locations nearby, such as the private Laiya Beach in Batangas or Puerto Galera.
If you’re spending any time in Manila, we recommend adding the romantic city adventure package to your wishlist. We can adjust it later on, depending on how long you’d prefer to stay in the city, but it’s a great introduction to the country with a romantic twist.

Philippines vs. Thailand – Where should I go?
Many people ask us which is the better honeymoon destination between the Philippines and Thailand. Naturally, we believe that the Philippines is the best place in the world, which is why we’ve chosen to live here.
Thailand is much more touristy – for better and for worse. The advantage of Thailand is that it’s much easier to get around, and the nightlife is certainly better. The downside is that it’s much harder to get away from the crowds, and the noise can be overwhelming. On the other hand, the Philippines is more exotic and unspoiled. Luckily for you, we work very hard to make sure all our romantic locations are easily accessible, even the most remote ones.
Not much can compete with Thailand’s unique culture and excellent cuisine, and admittedly the Philippines falls behind in those departments. Still, there are a lot of interesting historic sites to visit and tasty foods to try. The Philippines also has much more beautiful and less developed natural landscape. Its beaches are cleaner and quieter. The local wildlife and marine ecosystems are more diverse, and the landscapes are more dramatic. Depending on where you go, you might also find that, the Philippines is cheaper.You can enjoy the same high standard of resorts at a more reasonable price.
Since Bangkok is just a 3.5- hours flight from Manila, one option is to combine the two. A stop over in Bangkok either before or after you visit the Philippines will allow to enjoy the Thai food and culture, so you’d get the best of both worlds.
If you choose to incorporate Thailand into your honeymoon, – don’t hesitate to ask us any questions. Most people on our team have been to Thailand many times, and would be happy to share their experiences with you.
