The best way to go island hopping in the Philippines, especially during summer, is to travel by boat. The journey is a highlight by itself.
You can marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or watch some dolphins along the way.
Boat travelers, unlike their airline or bus counterparts, are not in a hurry. They don’t sleep throughout the trip or insult flight attendants. They don’t bark at bus drivers to hurry up. No, boat travellers relax at the ship deck, or talk to other passengers, or sing their hearts out in one of the ship’s entertainment spaces.
It is the experience of a luxury cruise at a very low price.
