We’ve ended up spending a long time in Manila (mainly in its shopping mall…) We were hoping to visit Boracay whilst in the Philippines, but unfortunately the ferry timetable didn’t match up with the days we had left so after a lot of looking online, we decided to take an overnight bus to Legaspi, to then go to Donsol to (hopefully) swim with some whale sharks - the largest fish in the world! I was disappointed that I didn’t get to see Boracay as it is supposed to be so beautiful, but not bitter because we were lucky enough to stay in El Nido for a week which was satisfying enough for my eyes!!
