Trip itinerary

Day 1

Begin with an airport pick up, and arrive at our hotel in the lively district of Makati, where you’ll meet your guide and the rest of your group. We give everyone time to arrive and relax a bit before we all meet up for a welcome dinner and drinks to get to know each other!

Day 2

The following morning we catch a flight to Puerto Princesa – the gateway to Palawan. From here, we get private minivans directly to a beautiful, quiet fishing village named Port Barton. On the way, we stop to have lunch with a local family; getting a feel for the local cuisine and way of life.

Day 3

Today we hop on a boat to explore the beautiful islands around Port Barton. We head out to several snorkel spots to look for turtles, view the reef and see some amazing beaches. Stop at a small fishing village for a local style lunch (included) and then afterwards head to a waterfall. In the evening we check out some of the best bars in town.

Day 4

It’s time to pack your stuff and get in private vans bound for one of the most popular destinations in the Philippines – El Nido! We stop at a waterfall on the way for a cheeky swim and chill out. After getting settled into our El Nido accommodation, we head out for dinner and explore the nightlife.

Day 5

Today we experience the world-class island hopping that made El Nido famous. We visit some of the best locations the region has to offer and enjoy a delicious local-style lunch. We arrive back at the hotel by sunset; there’s some time to chill out before we meet again later for dinner.

Day 6

Time to explore El Nido by land. We start our day zip-lining across the ocean to another island on the Las Cabanas beach zipline. After zip-lining we head to Nacpan beach, also known as El Nido’s ‘twin beaches’ to chill out and enjoy some quality beach time. We enjoy the incredible sunset at the beach and then head back into town.

Day 7

This morning we get an early start, and catch the fast boat to Coron Island. After a break for lunch, we embark on our 3 day/2 night Red Carabao Coron Castaway Expedition! We stay at Camp Carabao – a private beach with basic beach-style bungalow accommodation. Get a feel for the local Tagbanua way of life by meeting some of the locals, and participating in some cultural activities, such as spearfishing, coffee brewing, mat weaving, and an indigenous Filipino cooking class.

Day 8

Head out for an exciting day of island hopping and local history. We enjoy a walking historical tour of Culion town, formerly the worlds largest leper colony, and spend the rest of the day island hopping and snorkelling at shipwrecks. We return to Camp Carabao in the evening where we enjoy a local Filipino dinner after an optional beach clean-up.

Day 9

It’s time to make our way back to Coron Island. We visit the lake and lagoon that made Coron famous in the morning and enjoy an optional hike up to the viewpoint for sunset before having our farewell dinner in Coron town. Cap off the final night out with the rest of the group over a few drinks in town.

Day 10

Today is, unfortunately, check out day, however, the fun doesn’t necessarily have to end. Your group leader is on hand to help you plan your next adventure; whether that be more adventures throughout the Philippines, another destination, or the journey home.

Are flights & insurance included?

While we would love to include flights and insurance in our trip packages, it is not feasible to have a fixed price due to the diverse destinations, trip durations, and individual coverage needs of our travellers from around the globe. However, once you register for the trip, we will assign you a dedicated Travel Concierge. They will work closely with you to arrange the ideal flights and insurance tailored to your specific adventure. Rest assured, our team is here to ensure you have a smooth and hassle-free travel experience from start to finish!

Why should I book now?

After the last unexpected disruption to travel caused by the..c word..people are now more eager than ever to venture out and explore the world, determined not to miss out on any experiences. Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12+ months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free. As a Global Traveller you’ll get exclusive access to gWorld, our personalised app where you can keep all of your important documents and trip details in one spot and gain insider access to everything Global. This is where you will find exclusive Marketplace Deals, a unique social network to connect you with other like-minded Global Travellers, access to our Academy with an ever-growing range of skills & languages, and so much more. Think all of your favourite apps merged into one, but like, better? Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend or partner?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together! But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join. And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

Can I bring my pet along?

At Global Work & Travel, we share a deep love for animals and fully understand the special bond you have with your pet. We recognise the challenges of embarking on a trip without them. Due to travel restrictions, requirements, and limited pet-friendly accommodations among our host organisations, we regretfully cannot facilitate their inclusion in the journey. However, many of our customers choose to entrust their pets to a family member or friend, embark on their adventure, and return home to wagging tails and furry cuddles.

What happens if I need to cancel my trip?

We know that life can get in the way of travel, so all our trips come with a great deal of flexibility. In most cases, if you cannot travel on your selected date, you can place your trip on hold to deal with whatever is holding you back, and continue in the future without incurring any penalty. You may also have the option of transferring to an entirely different trip and destination as well, or even transferring your trip to a friend or family member. In the event that you need to outright cancel your trip, if you give us 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put toward any other trip that we offer, including tours through third-party providers, as well as holidays through, and is valid for 2 years from date of issue. As international travel can be complex, your options are based on the progress of your trip organisation and our support team can assist you in finding the best solution for your needs.
