We are keeping up with our annual tradition of running our extremely successful and popular San Pedro Cutud Lenten Rites and Extreme Philippines Tour.
The tour starts in Manila before we head off to San Fernando on Good Friday to watch people literally nail themselves to crosses, followed by a night out in the City of Sin, Angeles.
Following this we get in touch with our cultural side by taking a trip to the summer capital of Baguio and the Hanging Coffins of Sagada. We’ll then get a bit YPT with a trip to the home of Ferdinand and Emelda Marcos and Batac, before a night on the town in Currimao.
On the way back to Manila we’ll stop at the private beach resort of La Union, where we’ll have a private BBQ. We’ll finish in Manila with a tour of the lesser developed rural areas, a visit to the Manila Hotel and finally ringside seats at midget boxing. The Philippines is not exactly renowned for its culinary prowess, but there is a great street food scene.
Why Extreme Philippines? Quite simply because we get way off the beaten track, and not on the usual tourist trail of the country, of us the country is about more than just beaches. Warts and all the Extreme Philippines Tour will show you all extremes of this country.
