This is it, the day you’ve been counting down till… ARRIVAL DAY! Welcome to the hustle and bustle of Manila, one of the most densely populated cities in the world. Let the culture shock begin. Today, one of the Chasin team will meet you at the airport and guide you to the hotel, where you can chill after the long journey or take a wander around the area. Be around for sunset, as we will meet for a sneaky drink on the roof and watch the sunset over this fast paced city.
Rise and shine Chasin crew, we are hitting the ground running today with a ‘Feeding Change Philippines’ project. We’ll be working alongside a bunch of dedicated locals that are making a positive impact for communities across the Philippines, with a focus on education, the environment, medical needs and much more. It’s going to be big! After a crazy day of fun and helping to make a difference, it’s time to freshen up and get ready for a Filipino feed and a wee bit of nightlife fun!
You’ve met some amazing people, now to take in where they come from. Let’s sus out the city of Manila. We’ll be cruising along the canal, using our legs, riding 100% local style in a jeepney and while we are at it, let's jump on a bike for a bit of sunset ride around the famous Intramuros. Tonight we will hit a great food market for some more local eats and sit back for a beer to chat about the last two days.
It’s time to escape the craziness and take to the skies for a flight to El Nido, Palawan… no wasting time on boats and buses! Once we’ve checked in, it’ll be a free arvo, before meeting up for a sunset drink and a meal at the famous El Nido Art Cafe.
Who’s ready to help save the turtles??? We are!!! Stretch and throw on some sunscreen, because we are hitting the water by kayak and boat to sus out the rubbish and do a clean up of whatever we find. The sights of today will blow your mind!
Time to learn the tricks of the trade with a cultural experience day. Coconut cracking, cooking class and traditional dance are just some of the things you’ll experience today. This evening is up to you, shopping, eating, bar hopping or catching an early night. Of course, the guide will have ideas for you or you could just follow them. Whatever floats your boat tonight!
Time to get your hands dirty again with a group that is focused on sustainable practises for businesses in the El Nido. The project will change from time to time, but with all things Chasin’ it’ll be a small step for a big difference! This arvo we will head over to Las Cabanas for another epic sunset (have your cameras ready for this one!). And if you’re feeling like a little adrenaline pump session, you have the option to zip through the skies from one island to another!! Anyone feeling a little dance tonight?... it is Friday at all!
Good morning dusty head! Nothing physical today, instead we are going to get creative with a local couple who upcycle beach trash into art! Some super cool stuff coming out of their workshop and now we are going to see what you’ve got. Then its beach chill time, a little bit of shopping, eating and maybe a cocktail or ice-cream as the sunsets. Of course, there is always an optional beach clean too!
We have to say goodbye to this majestic place today and board another island to island flight. Now it’s time for the island of Bohol to meet the Chasin’ crew. After the travels, we are going to have a nice chilled afternoon by the pool and a free evening. Follow the guide for a feed later if you like.
Tour time! Ever heard of the Chocolate hills? How about Tarsiers? No worries, we will show you some of the highlights of Bohol today. Bring your camera and get ready for a day out playing tourist.
We kick off our main marine awareness project here. Starting with an orientation, the next few days will be filled with workshops, snorkel surveys, beach cleans and all other things conservation. Bring your notebook and pen, or at least your brain because you’re going to learn a lot!
We are giving your brains a break today and taking you to see some more epic sights of this area. To finish off the day, a massage is on us to really relax.
Our last day! We are going to do one big beach clean to go out with a bang! For all the doggy lovers out there, there is an option to go and visit and help with some of the rescue dogs on the island. Finally a dinner together and one last yee-haaa before everyone goes their own way tomorrow.
Final good-byes are going to be said… don’t cry, we can do a reunion tour next year ;).
We will help you arrange onward travel to wherever you’re heading.
