Manila Arrival Information
Our tour starts at 6 pm at Z Hostel in Makati on day 1 of the tour. You should fly into Manila airport which is approximately a 45-minute taxi ride from Z Hostel (depending on traffic). If your flight will arrive after 5 PM, it’s best to arrive on the day before the start date. We can arrange your accommodation for the night before if needed. Extra nights will be approx. $40AUD per night.
After Do the Palawan Islands
This Palawan Islands tour finishes on the beautiful island of Coron. If you’re staying on longer in the Philippines, your group leader can help organise all of your onward travel, including any of our add-on packages. If you’re just doing the Palawan tour and then going home and need to get back to Manila, then it’s a short van ride to the airport (our tour leader can organise this for you too) and a 1 hour 45-minute flight to Manila. There are a few direct flights per day from Coron to Manila. We can also organise the flight back for you. There is an option to add this to your booking on the “optional extras page”. If you have any more questions about this, please feel free to contact us.
Travel Insurance When Travelling to The Philippines
Travel Insurance for this trip is compulsory. Your Group Leader will ask to see proof of your cover before your trip begins. We have teamed up with Nomads Travel Insurance to make this super easy for you. Grab yourself a quote here
Visas When Visiting the Philippines
Most nationalities including Australia, UK, Europe, NZ, Canada, and the US do not need a visa to enter the Philippines. If you plan to stay in the Philippines for longer than 30 days, you will need to extend your visa for a fee of approximately $80 AUD. We recommend checking with your local Philippines consulate for up to date visa requirements and costs. If you need any further help with visas just contact us.
Can I connect with my group before I leave?
Yes! Once you’ve booked and before you travel we’ll help put you in touch with the rest of your group, so you can start chatting and getting to know each other.
How much spending money will I need?
All of your internal flights, activities, accommodation, transport and some meals are included throughout the duration of the tour, so you’ll just need money for any extra meals, drinks, shopping, and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least $300 AUD spending money for the trip.
What luggage do you recommend?
We always recommend traveling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s almost always very hot in the Philippines so it is never fun to drag around a big suitcase!
Guests will be arriving throughout the day. Your tour leader will be waiting to meet you at the roof deck of our hostel today at 6:00 pm. Grab a beer and enjoy the view of the Manila skyline while we do a quick orientation. For our first group dinner, we enjoy a delicious traditional Filipino meal before heading out to the red light district of Makati to explore the night scene.
