If you’ve ever been flying at 35,000 feet and found yourself thinking “I fancy a crack at winning a large inflatable giraffe”, then there’s one country you really ought to visit: the Philippines.
Their tourist board proclaims: “It’s more fun in the Philippines!” and you’ll quickly discover that they’re not kidding. Filipinos have a vivacious sense of humour – as evidenced by Cebu Pacific’s mid-air passenger quizzes – and their easy-going demeanour helps to make visiting this beautiful country a happy experience.
Some of Asia’s most attractive islands and beaches can be reached in less than an hour from the cities of Manila and Cebu – entry points after a 15-hour flight from the UK – and often for less than £100 return.
Cebu Pacific has opened up more of these 7,107 endlessly fascinating islands by providing new routes that other airlines were avoiding as unprofitable. Now that Typhoon Haiyan is a distant memory, the rocky outcrop-studded region of Palawan in particular has been catching the eye of travellers prepared to fly that little bit further.
Of the Philippines’ tourism destinations, Bantayan Island in northern Cebu was the most badly damaged. Over the last 12 months, Bantayan has made a good recovery, with resorts taking the opportunity to upgrade facilities – and the beaches are still as beautiful as ever.
