LOOK: Discover Another Side to the Hottest Philippine Destinations

The Philippines is undoubtedly a dream getaway for fans of the tropics across the globe. While the 7,000+ islands are home to world-renowned beaches, it is also a vacationer’s heaven for its city attractions, outdoor activities, sightseeing, and calming experiences! 

While tourist hotspots are popular for a good reason, many tend to look for newer vacation spots and activities to re-enliven the excitement during trips. In the spirit of bringing in new experiences, as opposed to taking the plane to visit local destinations, Klook’s newest partnership with 2GO finds a new cost-effective way to and from the Metro.

With 2GO, Klook now brings the opportunity for travelers to arrive at popular island destinations by taking a cruise for as low as PHP 2,290.00. From generous baggage allowance, readily available onboard entertainment, cozy meals, comfortable chairs and shortened travel times, traveling by water provides all the benefits and twice the fun.  Currently, 2GO offers routes to Coron, Puerto Princesa,  Cebu and Caticlan.

If this has piqued your interest, transportation isn’t Klook’s only new offering. At El Nido, experience the breathtaking 3 Day 2 Night Clear Waters Expedition in Palawan which brings you across the many islands of the Calamian archipelago. Further into this trip, you’ll discover the Darocotan shipwreck, and beautiful coral reefs alongside a marine conservationist who will guide you through the awe-inspiring snorkeling sessions. Additionally, this tour treats you to an exciting feast where you get to try traditional dishes such as grilled seafood by the beachside.

The adventure also doesn’t end there. Islands away from the beautiful El Nido is the wonderous Coron. While the trip can be daunting, boarding the Coron – El Nido Ferry by Jomila Shipping Lines will reduce the 12-hour travel time by car in just about 4 hours.  Alternatively, if you’re coming from Manila, you may opt to take the Manila to/from Coron Cruise by 2GO and sail in comfort to not miss out on the activities available in Coron such as the Coron Electric Bike Tour in Palawan. In this experience,  you get to visit the uncrowded gems on the island with an e-bike. With a local guide, the tour will take you to Siete Pecados, which is a highly recommended snorkeling spot, the saltwater Maquinit Hot Springs, Cabo Beach, and a tasty lunch at Kina John’s Restaurant while overlooking rice fields.

If Palawan is not on your radar, Bohol is another tropical paradise that must be discovered. If coming from Cebu after taking the Manila to and from Cebu Cruise by 2GO, travelers have the option to take the skies or traverse the seas with Klook’s Cebu – Bohol Ferry by OceanJet.

Upon arrival, Klook also offers numerous experiences that will take you to the island’s classic destinations, such as the Baclayon Church, Chocolate Hills, and more. In addition to this, Panglao Parasaling is an activity that you don’t want to miss out on. This is an exhilarating airborne experience where you get to witness the amazing view of Bohol’s lush green islands, pristine beaches, and vibrant coral reefs.
