Contiki launches first ever trip to The Philippines

Friday, Mar 01, 2024 0


And it’s even been tried and tested by a lucky group of Past Contiki Travellers…


Contiki, the leading social travel brand for 18-35s, has announced its first ever trip to the Philippines. The new Philippines Island Hopping trip will give travellers the incredible chance to explore the country’s most famous tourist hotspots, all in less than 2 weeks.


The trip has two versions: a 9-day that goes to Puerto Princesa, Port Barton and El Nido, and a longer 13-day trip – the Philippines Island Hopping Trip with Boat Expedition, that includes an additional sea safari adventure to the Coron Islands. Contiki makes the Philippines – which can be challenging for travellers to navigate – much easier to explore. Both trips include internal flights, boat transfers and all other transport – along with all accommodation and various meals too.


Each of the trips include unmissable island adventures, such as a boat ride through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Subterranean River National Park, an island-hopping day trip in Port Barton, a Jeepney ride to Nacpan Beach, and a unique Special Stay and MAKE TRAVEL MATTER ® experience at the Isla Experience in Daracoton Island – which directly contributes to the welfare of the locals. Travellers will also have a chance to visit a local’s house for an authentic locally-grown Filipino Meal.


In an industry-leading move, Contiki invited a group of past travellers for an exclusive first glance at the newly launched trip. After receiving well over 1,000 applications, Contiki selected a lucky group of past travellers to be the very first to experience the trip. Jetting off on an all-expenses-paid adventure, the group had the exclusive chance to try and test the trip before its first public departure.


“Visiting Darocorton Island was amazing. Other than that, snorkelling, swimming at the beautiful beaches, and also meeting the local people. They were very welcoming, which I always enjoyed”, says Laura Reid from Ireland


“My favourite experience from the trip was trying all the traditional foods from the different restaurants. And also visiting the local village. Especially Nanay and hearing her story about how she earns money for her family through this”, says Terri-Anne Mattadeen, a past traveller from the USA.


Christian was born in the Philippines and aimed to trace his roots back through this trip. This was the first time he was visiting the country since moving to Australia in his childhood.


“I had heard a lot about the culture of the Philippines. It’s very friendly, warm, and welcoming. And as soon as we stepped off the boat to the islands, we got that tenfold from all the locals. It’s really nice to go back and just interact with everyone”, says Christian. “For me, the special stay at Darocorton Island was a highlight. I just really enjoyed being with the locals. Such beautiful sights. And the sunset was just perfect.”


” I am delighted to announce the launch of our new trip to the Philippines, a highly sought-after destination for travellers worldwide, especially among the Gen-Z demographic. This trip promises to fulfil the demand for an easy and enjoyable experience in the Philippines, featuring the best spots and something for everyone. With stunning beaches, exhilarating marine adventures, and rich cultural experiences, we’re thrilled to offer an unforgettable journey that showcases the beauty and diversity of this remarkable destination.” – Kelly Jackson Managing Director EMEA.
