Itinerary

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DAY 1 & 2: Arrive in Manila
Fly from Australia to Manila (Using your Flight credit)
Make own way to Hotel for 2 night stay (including breakfast)

Home to 12 million, the capital of the Philippines is a dynamic city with a rich colonial history dating to 1565, when the Spanish arrived. Dive into the most popular attractions, including the elegant Malacanang Palace, the National Museum of the Philippines and Rizal Park. The poignant, 150-acre American Cemetery and Memorial holds U.S. and Allied servicemen who made the ultimate sacrifice during World War II. The historic walled city core, Intramuros, is well worth exploring.

DAY 3: Manila, Philippines
Make own way to Port to Embark on your Cruise
Manila Embark: 08:00PM

DAY 4: Boracay, Philippines
A destination so popular, the government had to start limiting the number of people that can visit each year, Boracay is a favourite for a reason. The White Beach is this small island's most famous feature, with sand so pale it almost looks like sugar. The water is usually clear, warm and inviting-perfect for a swim. Up away from the shore, you can find restaurants that'll satisfy any craving and not-to-be-missed night life. After relaxing on the beach, take a stroll through open air markets or hike through the island's greenery.

DAY 5: Coron, Philippines
Coron Town is located in the eastern portion of Busuanga Island and is an ideal base from which to discover the awe-inspiring natural beauty of the Calamian Islands. The main attractions on Busuanga are hot springs and diving among WWII Japanese ship wrecks in the surrounding shallow water. If you're seeking true relaxation, picturesque beaches nestled between limestone cliffs on nearby islands will make you feel a world away. To experience a paradise unlike any other, journey to Coron Island where unique fresh and salt water mixed lakes are nestled among unspoiled mountains and jagged cliffs rise from the sea.

DAY 6: AT SEA

DAY 7: Kaohsiung, Taiwan
Colonization by the Dutch in the 17th century has left an ample architectural legacy, as did Taiwan's rule by Japan from 1895-1945. Grab a coffee at the former British Consulate, a landmark overlooking the bay. Art lovers can enjoy the outdoors and contemporary sculptures at the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts' Sculpture Park, and for a spiritual experience, a visit to the Fo Guang Shan Buddha Memorial Centre, with the world's largest sitting Buddha, is highly recommended.

DAY 8: Ishigaki, Japan
Discover this remote and picturesque island's lush mountains, beautiful beaches and magnificent coral reef from island viewpoints. See the native palm forest and the lavishly decorated Chinese tomb. Journey to isolated Irimote to trek through the island's dense jungles and mangroves or enjoy fantastic snorkelling amid beautiful coral reefs. Back in Ishigaki, search for local textiles, pottery, crafts and black pearls, and enjoy local meat-centred specialties in the town's restaurants.

DAY 9: AT SEA

DAY 10: Naha, Okinawa, Japan
Enjoy the scenic countryside, WWII memorials, magnificent limestone caves and a reconstructed Ryukyu village where the island's heritage and crafts are on display. Take home exquisite Bingata fabric, handmade paper, colourful tsuboya-yaki pottery and other craft items. You'll also find foods to suit any palate, but traditional Okinawan cuisine blends influences from Chinese and Southeast Asian cuisines.

DAY 11: Hualien, Taiwan
The gateway to the east coast of Taiwan, Hualien is a bustling city full of good food, majestic architecture and beautiful green spaces. Tour temples both old and new, stroll through the city centre, or get a taste of Taiwan at one of many restaurants or markets. If you're looking for natural beauty, you'll find it just up the coast. Visit Taroko National Park, where the Liwu River carved a scenic gorge with hills rising up on either side.

DAY 12: Taipei (Keelung), Taiwan
Make your own way to your hotel for your 2 night stay.

The capital of this fascinating island, once known as Formosa ("beautiful island" in Portuguese), has a rich aboriginal, colonial and political history. Snap a selfie at the ornate, dragon-adorned Mengjia Longshang Temple or photograph the changing of the guard at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, a must-see site. Experience 360-degree views of the city from the 91st floor observation deck of Taipei 101. Selfies and panaromic pics done, head off to shop for Taiwanese lacquerware, silk and fine art.
