HT: UPGRD Blog
The Philipines has much to offer eco-tourists, especially birders and now it’s cheaper to get there. UPGRD has the details on their blog and the fares between Australia and Manila look pretty good! The YQ’s are a bit high but I priced out a sample and it was less than the website says. The domestic flights look like a good deal but I was disappointed that they don’t offer Manila – Puerto Princessa (Palawan) which is home to the rare Katala Philippine Cockatoo which I got to see in Sept 2010. They will be changing the offers every week so check back as you could get lucky next time!
