    Yes, you heard it right. It's very possible to conquer 4 provinces in the Philippines for less than one week. Last year, we did Siquijor, Dumaguete and Bohol for 4d4n.

The summer is approaching so I am really "looking around" for the next Philippine destinations I want to go back and I think these places are on top of my bucketlist.
