Just eight hours in the air is all it takes to trade in the buzz of Sydney for the tropical paradises of the Philippines. What's more, cheap flights to Philippines from Australia can be super deals! Without breaking the bank, you can jet into a land of cotton-white beaches fringed by palms, where bamboo bars serve cold beers in the sunset and hammocks swing above glistening lagoons. Highlights include the diving mecca of Palawan, where you'll delve into azure seas filled with brain corals and pipefish. There's also Cebu and its hidden jungle waterfalls. There are emerald rice terraces cascading down the mountains in Ifugao. There's long-lost Siargao for the surf tribe. It's endless.
Hop on a catamaran in Palawan and venture out to craggy islets where lagoons conceal resplendent coral reefs and white-sand beaches.
The laid-back life of Siargao is all about surfing Cloud 9 in the morning and hopping to the amazing sand bars of Naked Island in the afternoon.
Have the camera at hand for the UNESCO site of Ifugao, which spreads across the sierras of Luzon in a dazzling show of green rice paddies.
