Touch down in Manila and check into the luxury Makati Shangri-La hotel. Spend some time exploring this multicultural city, home to the world’s largest Chinatown and the historic Fort Santiago. When not exploring the museums, people watch or have your fortune told on Plaza Miranda or watch the sunset over Manila Bay. Don’t miss the Marikina Shoe Museum, one of the largest collections of shoes in the world, many donated by celebrities and politicians.
5* Makati Shangri-La
Jet off o the tiny tropical island of Boracay, where the pristine, shell-filled sands of Puka Beach await. Alternatively, the soft power sands of White beach take some beating, while water babies can try some snorkelling around Crocodile Island. If you’re here between November and April try kiteboarding on Bulabog beach or for something less strenuous simply chill in your hotel’s opulent spa.
5* Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa
Sit back and relax on the white sandy beaches and dip your toes in the impossibly blue waters of Cebu, a great place to try island hopping between the idyllic beaches and fabulous dive sites. Back on land, the bright lights of Cebu City’s buzzing bars and eclectic restaurants are well worth a try. If diving is your bag then head to the vertical wall dives of Pescador Island, and watch the twisting slivery shapes of the sardine run.
