– End Itinerary –
Grab your walis–that’s a broom or broomstick in Filipino–and get on-board this fascinating, no-holds-barred adventure through the mystical and picturesque land of the aswang–that translates to witch–finishing up at Party Central, B O R A C A Y, renowned for having Asia’s, if not the planet’s, best beach!
By foot, outrigger boat, jeepney and kayak–and dare we say walis–you’ll explore this colorful paradise of verdant, remote and pulsating islands, lifting the lid on a people and a place exhibiting the wonderful contradictions that is humanity and this planet. But be assured the locals will never stop smiling and laughing–Filipinos can’t help it. And it’s contagious. You’ll get the bug!
