Holidays Closer to Home...

Although we specialise in the Philippines, the fact that the country is on the other side of the world to the UK, means that many people may not be able to travel there as often as they like.

For those that are looking for closer destinations, whether that be for weekend breaks, or shorter stay holidays, or who simply want a change of scenery, our sister website, caters for them.

Being members of the Travel Trust Associations allows us to assist customers with all kinds of holidays, not just to the Philippines, (although that will always remain our specialist area). And the beauty of is that most searches and bookings can be made there and then, directly from the website, with some real bargains often available.

Captured by conservationist Shawn Heinrichs, the once-in-a-lifetime behaviour of the half dozen whale sharks up to 25ft long and the 12 or so fishermen draws gasps of disbelief from casual observers.
The food-based friendship centres around the brine shrimp the fishermen are catching and the trust between man and the world's largest fish is evident to see.

At Philippine Trails, we run holidays where you can share in this wonderful experience, visiting Donsol, where the whale sharks are prevalent between December and May.
