Our Philippines travel video
The Philippines was a dream!
We spent a month in this beautiful country in May/June 2015 and absolutely fell in love with it.
The Philippines has some of the most incredible underwater life we’ve experienced, which makes scuba diving and snorkelling a dream. We particularly enjoyed snorkelling and kayaking around El Nido on Palawan Island.
Flower Island near El Nido was our romantic island escape with some amazing snorkelling. For a country made up of over 7,000 islands, it’s not difficult to find your own island romantic getaway.
Palawan island is also home to the Underground River near Puerto Princesa. It is said to be the longest navigable underground river in the world and was voted as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature by a global poll in 2012.
Filipino food is seriously underrated, but it does have some quirky elements to it. Check out balut: a 17 days old duck embryo, which is a very popular snack in The Philippines. We tried balut on Puka Beach on Boracay island and you can watch Sebastien’s reaction to it in our video!
Boracay is a gay friendly party paradise, albeit quite touristy. Some love it and others hate it and avoid it. We loved it a lot, particularly as we got to dress up and learn to swim like mermaids on the popular White Beach.
We can’t wait to return to the Philippines one day.
Our Philippines travel video was made using the video editor “MAGIX Movie Edit pro 2014″. The music used is the instrumental version of “Drunk on Love” by Rihanna.
