We ended up in the Philippines almost for fortune, for a series of coincidences, but this was the country where we really thought we may stay for a while. This is because Philippines is a fun, friendly and beautiful country, rich in positive vibes and human creativity.
Ours was a one-month bicycle trip in the Philippines, the length of the Visa free regime.

As usual, we think that a bicycle is the better tool to deeply explore, get in touch with the real and experience landscapes and people. Even though the Philippines are an inexplicably underrated cycling destination, you should really consider the cycling option.

Anyway, the itineraries listed here could easily be done by local transports or renting a scooter. Just click on the images to read the full articles, those include detailed interactive maps of our bicycle trip, complete with elevation profile.

Guimaras is world renowned for mango production, those are told to be the best mangoes in the world. But it’s not just for the mango that we came here, Guimaras is really worth a visit, could be explored in a few days and you’ll never forget the feeling of this island…” (keep on reading)
Panay is mainly known as the gate to Boracay island, the most famous tourist destination in the Philippines and one of the most visited in South East Asia.
