Pick somewhere different to go for your next adventure – like, really different. These eight days in gorgeous, northern Philippines will stay with you forever. Trek through remote villages to see stunningly green rice terraces, learn about unusual and historic traditions like the hanging coffins of Sagada, and then wrap it all up by meandering down the streets of Manila, which may honestly be some of the most underrated fun this side of Southeast Asia. We swear.
