OVERVIEW: You can come to The Philippines and hit all of the popular spots from Palawan Island (Puerto Princesa, Sabang, Port Barton and El Nido) to Coron to Boracay to Siquijor to Panglao to Malapascua … But the Central Spine offers more of an authentic Philippines experience at a cheaper price without the crowds … with beaches and experiences that are just as good. In this post, I suggest a 1-2 month itinerary for those who want to follow a ‘Road Less Travelled’. All on a GRANDPAcking Budget of US$54 / […]
