Flights from Philippines

The Philippines is expanding its reach on a global scale, with multiple international airports across the country serving flights to just about anywhere else. And with the rise of low-cost carriers, taking a short or long getaway has never been so easy. From secluded beaches around the corner to cities with a whole new culture, the Philippines is a springboard to countless destinations worldwide.

Boracay

Locally, the Philippines has numerous hidden treasures to offer. For a short getaway, take a relaxing ferry ride to the beautiful pearly shores of Boracay. Shed all your stress and lounge at a fancy bar or under the breezy palm trees on this island entirely dedicated to the laid-back life.

Taal Volcano, Luzon

Another marvel of nature is the Taal Volcano on Luzon Island, a complex volcano part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. Located some 37 miles south of Manila, this scenic formation is the world’s smallest volcano. Take a relaxing boat ride to the base of Taal, whose crater can be reached by trekking. If you’d rather admire this magnificent sight from afar, Tagaytay City is your best bet for a stunning view of Taal Volcano and its lake. The Sky Ranch Ferris wheel offers an unparalleled vista of the scenery, while its People’s Park in the Sky provides an unobstructed 360-degree view of the surroundings.

Hong Kong and Macau

Prefer somewhere a little more foreign? It’s easy to get from the Philippines to an entirely different cultural experience. Just 700 miles across the South China Sea lie Hong Kong and Macau, the nearest cities outside of the Philippines. Spend a day or two in Macau for a mock-Venetian vacation while ringing in the cash at its famed casinos, then make a short transit over to Hong Kong to splurge your winnings on food and shopping. Visas are not needed for US or Filipino citizens to fly here.

Taiwan

Taiwan is the third-nearest country to the Philippines. Comparable to Hong Kong, there are endless things to see, eat, and buy on this island. To escape the city life, venture into the rural regions of Hualien, where the sweeping mountainscape stretches everywhere the eye can see. Visit the Taroko National Park, known for its marbled gorges, and Kenting National Park’s gorgeous coastline. Citizens of the Philippines may need to apply for a visa to travel here.

Spain

If you plan on flying even longer and farther, Spain is always a beautiful option. Besides sharing a fraternal heritage with the Philippines, Spain also boasts a rich cultural and architectural landscape. Explore the regal heights of Park Güell, a vast garden of colourfully-tiled buildings and structures. Originally envisioned as a recreation of British residential parks, its private walls were later opened to public events. There are countless of dazzling cathedrals and palaces in Spain also worth a visit, such as the Royal Palace of Madrid and the spectacular Palace of Catalan Music.
