“Unforgettable Vacation" (2017) 


Hello, we are Gio & Bea and we just concluded our trip to the Philippines accompanied by Samuele  (of Tropical Experience Travel Services).


Well, what can we say? The places are so charming and beautiful that only those that personally saw them can understand our emotions, but we’ll try our best to let you imagine.

We started on February 14 visiting Manila, a chaotic metropolis with traffic, noise and flavours that are very different compared to what we are used to, but still interesting and captivating. After that, we flew to Bohol and visited the Chocolate Hills and the Tarsier Sanctuary, also having a cruise on Loboc River.


In the following days, we flew to Palawan, visiting Puerto Princesa, El Nido and finally Coron. In Puerto Princesa, the Underground River (UNESCO Heritage and recently part of the New 7 Wonders of Nature), conquered us with its absolute silence. In the afternoon, my wife Bea allowed herself to try a zipline… but I didn’t, as I couldn’t find enough courage to do it…


In El Nido we found a beautiful bay, starting point for boat daily tours, where we visited beaches, islands and hidden lagoons with breathtaking views, sunny days (we had solar protection 50), sea and took a lot of pictures.


Our last destination was Coron, different compared to El Nido, with volcanic lakes and thermal hot springs where you can relax. But still with a blue-emerald sea to do snorkeling. In Coron I also celebrated my 53rd birthday with many surprises made by Samuele and my wife.


Once back in Manila we also had the privilege of meeting the family of Samuele: Candice, Gabriel and the little Oceano. I want to say it again: it was an unforgettable holiday and we want to go back for our future trips, but things would have not been that beautiful and interesting without the company of “our” Samuele, an exquisite person, attentive to all our needs, very available and professional. Bravo Samuele, this THANK YOU is for you. See you next time…

Gio and Bea
