Tailormade Philippines Tour Packages from India

Whoever thought of making “It’s more fun in the Philippines” the official tourism slogan of the island nation was thinking right. From the country’s countless islands that offer some of the best beach experiences in the world to the lush-stepped rice fields that feed the charming and ever-welcoming Filipinos, life indeed is more fun in the Philippines.

Check out Flying Squirrel Holidays’ carefully curated Philippines tour packages from India and read on to get an idea of what visiting the Philippines will be like!



The Philippines is an archipelago in South-East Asia. Here Unesco World Heritage Sites lie close to decadent casinos and the populous mega city of Manila is just as popular as the spotless beaches of Boracay. Perhaps this is why the Philippines is one of the most striking and unforgettable countries in the world that one can visit.

The name of the country brings to mind its pristine tropical island beaches that are second to none. Constantly ranked among the best in the world, the soft sands of White Beach on Boracay Island is where most visitors like to spend a big part of their time in the Philippines.

The untouched shore of White Beach gently merges into the calm, warm turquoise water and with the fence of tall, swaying palm trees on the side, the beach is indeed postcard perfect. There are luxurious resorts in the area, and there are things to do and enjoy for everyone. Thrill seekers are spoilt for choice at Boracay, with premier water activities like kite surfing, jet skiing, and fly fishing.

A favourite activity here is parasailing, and the bird’s-eye view that parasailing offers of the island and the ocean is beyond stunning. For those who want to spend relaxing, laid back hours, Boracay, with its unparalleled views of the sunrise and the sunset and every stage in between, is simply heavenly.

El Nido, a district in the Palawan area of the country, is a striking island, with views of bright blue-green waters, veiled lagoons, gigantic natural limestone structures and miles and miles of soft sand. Island hopping is one of the best things to do in El Nido, and the hopping tours to the surrounding places are divided into 4 groups, namely Tour A, Tour B, Tour C and Tour D.

Tour A is the quintessential tour, covering the heavenly Big Lagoon, which is known for its emerald waters and limestone ridges, Secret Lagoon, a hidden pool inside a limestone cliff and Shimizu Island, a place known for snorkelling and scuba diving.

Another way to discover El Nido is to hike up the Taraw Cliff. The guided hike traverses up a limestone cliff and the top offers a breathtaking 360 degree view of the entire town and the surrounding islands. The short, half an hour hike sounds misleadingly easy, but the humidity and sharp rocks make the climb challenging. However, the fruits of effort are sweet, and the Taraw cliff hike surely proves it.

One cannot talk about treks in the Philippines without mentioning the Mount Daraitan trek, located in the Rizal province of Luzon. Suited for moderate to experienced trekkers, the route can be traversed within a day. The path uphill is extremely scenic, with verdant trees lining the roads and concealing diverse wildlife.

Old caves that are great for spelunking also dot the route, and trekkers are welcome to make stops at them. The view of the Sierra Madre range from the viewpoint at the top is overwhelmingly magnificent.

Vigan, also located on the Luzon Island, takes one back in time to when the Philippines was a Spanish colony. Horse drawn carriages called Kalesa are the transport of choice in the famous cobbled street of Calle Crisologo, where tourists can pick up souvenirs. Blossoming balconies overlook the streets of the town and with the pretty fountains scattered throughout, Vigan is truly charming.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Vigan is considered to be the best planned and preserved Spanish town in Asia. The baroque styled Saint Paul Metropolitan Cathedral is another landmark of the town.

The island nation packs a range of experiences for tourists, and the diversity of activities offered ensures that every interest and taste is catered to.




Most trips to the Philippines packages start with a day or two spent on sightseeing tours of the teeming mega city, discovering Filipino culture, history and gastronomy. The old part of the city is largely found in a section called Intramuros, and it is here that visitors can learn about the history of the country. Fort Santiago, for example, is as old as the city itself, and has beautiful gardens and ancient structures. A museum commemorating Jose Rizal, a national hero, stands within the complex. Manila is also a great place to try out local dishes. Korean and Japanese restaurants are popular in the city too, and are well loved by tourists and locals alike.


The island of Cebu is a tropical delight, with azure waters and shores of palm lined white sands. However, it is best known for the activities it offers- Cebu has world class diving and snorkeling, and spotting thresher sharks, hammerhead sharks, sea turtles and whale sharks is not rare here. Cebu is also known for its treks, and its hills are the home for a diverse range of wildlife. The star of wildlife treks is the reclusive Tarsier, a nocturnal primate, and they can be spotted clinging to trees with their bulbous eyes shining brightly. Cebu also has mesmerizing waterfalls, and Kawasan Falls is the most popular. The plunge pool formed here is bright blue, and is known for activities like waterfall jumping, canyoning and rappelling.


Coron, in the Palawan area of the Philippines, is best known for its spectacular dives around World War II wrecks. Much like El Nido, the island has limestone karsts and spotless sandy beaches overlooking blue green water, but it is also less crowded. Coron’s many heavenly lagoons and incredibly vibrant and diverse coral reefs make it unforgettable.


Visit the active Mayon Volcano that has an appealing symmetrical conical peak.

Unwind on the picturesque White Beach in Boracay.

Explore the historical section of Manila.

Dive into the underwater and explore the stunning reefs.

Hike up the hilly areas and spot the diverse wildlife.

Mingle with the warm Filipinos.


Chocolate Hills

Bohol’s Chocolate Hills are the favourite of those interested in geology. The hills are shaped like Hershey’s kisses, and they turn brown in the summer as the vegetation dries out, giving them a chocolaty colour and, hence, the name. There are a lot of local legends surrounding the hills, and they are all interesting to know. Sagbayan Peak offers the best 360 degree view of the hills.

Puerto Pricesa

The underground river is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a national landmark. Stunning cave formations and limestone karsts surround the river, and a number of endemic species including bats, swallows, fish and crabs call the river and the caves their home. There are tours run to help tourists discover the portion of the river that is open to visitors.

Batad Rice Terraces

The 2000 year old rice terraces of Batad are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.The steps on which the paddy is grown was carved out almost entirely by hand ages ago, and till date the ancient irrigation system feeds the crop. The lush green fields are a sight for sore eyes and hikes across the terraces are a special favourite of landscape photographers.

      Visited Thailand (Bangkok & Phuket) with my family in January 2024 through this tour operating company. They prepared a customised itinerary for us, booked our hotels at both locations and arranged all associated transportation and sight-seeing tours. We had an enjoyable trip. Both hotels were good. The tours and transportation too were good and very well arranged by their local tour partners. They had created an Whatsapp group for close monitoring of our tour, which was very effective and assuring. Many thanks to the Flying Squirrel Holidays team !

      I booked a trip with my mom for Bangladesh with Flying Squirrel Holidays. As the caption says - its taken care of, the team stood up to my expectations. It was an awesome and memorable experience. It was indeed special for me as my mom had a fabulous time. We visited 4-5 places in Bangladesh and every arrangement in each and every place was great. Starting from their flight booking service, visa processing, currency exchange, hotels, cab, itinerary, food - all was top notch. I definitely look forward to many more memories with Flying Squirrel Holidays. Well done Team and thanks a ton for the experience 🙏 👍 😀.
