If you are partial to tropical islands, crystal clear waters, and pristine white-sand beaches, (and let's be honest...who isn’t?) then the Philippines should be at the top of your travel bucket list. Best known for some of the friendliest locals, most vibrant reefs, impossibly beautiful coastlines and some of the best island hopping in the world, the Philippines is an unforgettable destination that is a must-see for all backpackers making their way through SouthEast Asia. Swim with pigs in Palawan (consistently voted the World’s Best Island), stay in a beach hut on Daracotan Islands, explore the idyllic seaside town of Moalboal, home of the infamous Sardine run and immerse yourself in local culture in Cebu and Coron. How about some TruExclusives? Our one-of-a-kind castaway experience on Palawan, or surf lessons in Asia’s often claimed surf capital of Siargao, with it’s epic nightlife too. Whether you’re seeking an island getaway or an adrenaline-packed adventure, the Philippines is the place for making new TruStories.
