The Philippines, a cluster of more than 7,000 tropical islands is defined by lively cities, exotic beaches, emerald rice terraces, aquamarine seas, smouldering volcanoes and smiling people. Here you will find a confluence of Spanish, America and Asian cultures coupled with diverse experiences from iconic heritage spots in Cebu to the beautiful scenery in the Chocolate Hills of Bohol - perfect for a fun-filled solos holiday.
The Philippines are a beach-lovers paradise, visit heart-stirringly beautiful Palawan, Boracay, Coron and El Nido to enjoy white sand beaches and turquoise lagoons with excellent snorkelling and diving. There are also epic inland jungle experiences, smouldering volcanoes and an abundance of wildlife – make sure you get to see the Philippine tarsier, a tiny primate! Cebu is also an essential stop for culture enthusiasts who can explore its 16th century Spanish colonial landmarks like the Basilica Minore del Santo Nino and San Pedro Fort.
The Philippines is the second largest archipelago in the world. Set apart from its Asian neighbours, it is the only predominantly Christian nation in Asia and has a different colonial background to other Asian nations with the Spanish arriving in the 16th century and handing over the country to America at the end of the 19th century.
I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
