What are the best places in the Philippines? In this video I share my top 10 of this beautiful country! You’ll find a list of tours and hotels down below!

#philippines #top10 #travelphilippines


► Philippines series 2015 (Palawan, Mindoro): 
► Philippines series 2016 (Batanes, Banaue): 
► Philippines series 2017 (Palawan):
► Philippines series 2018 (Siquijor, Sipalay, Antique, Islas de Gigantes & Guimaras): 
► Philippines series 2019 (Siargao, Bohol & Boracay):

NOTE! I don’t keep prices well when traveling, and prices change over the years so I won’t be able to include them.. I am sorry!
Also: order down here is random, not to spoil the video :P
Also: there is more info about individual places in the descriptionboxes of the video’s I made about those places!

► Sleep at Guindulman Bay Tourist Inn: 
Go see:
► Waterfalls of Candijay (can-umantad falls) 
► Rice fields of Candijay 
► Lamanok island tour 
► Hike behind the hotel and see the amazing valley! Just walk the road inland from Guindulman bay tourist inn for 20 minutes or so!

I did my tour with Buhay Isla!

►Hotel: I honestly think there are so many new places, I do not dare to make a recommendation!
►Tours: Jeremy & Jake tours is the one I’d recommend! Did you know I made and organize their FB page?  Just a fun fact! I made it cause I really believe in them!

There are multiple hotels I can recommend.
►Surfing Carabao:
My favorite! 
►Ocean 101:
►Kawili: (also for food)
►Tourcompany I used and recommend is My Siargao Guide (book with them through Bravo resort). 
Other places to check out (especially if you rent your own bike):
►Pacifico, long drive but popular surf spot and beach
►Magpungko Rock pool, which is apparently very stunning when the sun is out!
►Tayangban Cave Pool
►Tak tak waterfall

►Hotel: Garden Bungalows resort (loved it!) 
►Tours I booked through the hotel. Though I would recommend getting a motorcycle and find the waterfalls, beaches and good spots all yourself!

► Sleep in Takatuka resort (featured in the video): 
►Take a tour to Danjugan Island (arranged by hotel)
►Tour the main attractions of Sipalay itself (1000 pesos half a day or 1500 whole day). Excluding fees along the way. 
Including Perth resort (infinity pool), the cave, one more resort and special places along the way. 
You can arrange this tour with Roland Dequina – or 09489358749 

Visit Sabtang, Batan and Itbayat. 
►Batan hotel: Nanay cita’s Homestay:
►Sabtang hotel: ask to stay at the lighthouse!
►Itbayat: arrive and ask for the mayor or miss Cano (when I was there these were the only homestays)
►Tours Batan: there is a northern and a southern tour on Batan. Do both of them! You can fit them in 1 day but rather take 2. 
►Tours Itbayat: do the general island tour but ALSO the sunrise tour! That one is the BEST!
►Sabtang: go for the standard half a day tour or sleep at the island and take the extended tour! :D Both are good, it depends on how much time you have. 

No recommendings for hotels. For tours: do the island tour for sure! It’s the best out here, and very close to each other. 
Also go for the caves and lighthouse if you have time to spare, otherwise just stick to the islands. 

►Sleep in Tapik Beach: 
You can do all the tours in El Nido from here, just ask at the resort. Also I’d recommend to do an island tour around Sibaltan, ask for the good corals! Mangrove tour is nice, only if you have time to spare. 

Not found a specific hotel I can recommend here. 
DEFINITELY do the ULTIMATE island tour! You’ll see the lakes and good corals, the shipwrecks and the islands. If you do Buhay Isla or an other Linapacan tour, ask what they already cover cause there might be overlap here. 
Climb mount Dalara if you’re done with islands 

Top 10 Tourist Attractions & Best Places To Visit In Philippines

Best Places To Visit In Philippines - If you are planning to travel the Philippines or you are willing to know how to travel the Philippines, Top 10 World lists Best Places in the Philippines you must visit.

Here are the best places to go to Philippines top places to visit and travel destinations.

1. MassKara Festival
2. Explore Cebu City
3. Banaue Rice Terraces
4. Boracay Island
5. White Beach at Puerto Galera 
6. Chocolate Hills
7. El Nido Philippines 
8. Legazpi City
9. Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park
10. Huma Island, Palawan


I did a tour that’s arranged. I believe it’s not even allowed to go around the island without a guide, but correct me if I am wrong!

It’s p1950 per head, including lunch and snacks, the boatride to the island and back to the shore. Note you’ll still need to go to the pick up point by tricycle. From Takatuka this was 300 pesos one way (so 600 back and forth). If you make friends and get into the tour together it will be cheaper ;)

Island is very small only 0.5 km wide and 1.5 kilometer long. It’s a sanctuary which means it’s not allowed to do fishing in most area’s around it, and there are a lot of places for birds to nest. With your tour you help preserving the island. 

You’ll support the island with your visit (it’s a protected area)
You can fly the drone here though!

Staying overnight on the island is possible too. In basic (very basic) huts on one side or a bit more relaxed and comforting on the other. There is no wifi, and no signal on the more relaxed place, you’ll need to walk a bit for that. 


There are basically 2 options on the island itself. One more basic (very basic) and one more luxurious. They’re on opposite sides of the island. It depends on your liking really.

The more basic place is more windy in general, and does not have a beach. I liked the more luxurious option a bit better, because it’s more chilled, there’s a beach and it feels more homey! But again, it depends on your liking and budget. 

► Just find all information on their website:

As for staying on the main land: I would highly recommend Takatuka Lodge! Love the place! Inspired on Pippi Longstocking’s tale, with a lot of weird rooms all over the place. Different themes like the cave room, superstar, rockadilly, a castle… you name it ;) It’s seriously the best hotel I’ve been in in the Philippines (and I have been to a lot I love ;) – It’s so funky and unique, the owners and staff are friendly and helpful, the food is great, they attract friendly guests, the beach is just there. AMAZING! Seriously. Go here. GO! What are you waiting for? ;)

► Find Takatuka here:


Because I stayed on Sugar Beach, there’s not much options to get out for dinner. You can’t just leave and get back after dark  I stayed at Takatuka mainly for food, and it’s good! Not cheap but a whole lot of variety, and great healthy stuff.
