Cebu is famous for its beaches, vibrant nightlife and island hopping adventures, with Camotes Island, given a special mention by Condé Nast Traveler as a place where tourists can immerse themselves to get a true taste of island living.

The island paradise of Palawan is home to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, one of the newly crowned seven natural wonders of the world. Palawan is also a popular destination for its unique diving points, natural lakes and white sandy beaches.
