in a month I will travel to the Philippines - finally! - but I'm not sure how to start this. Therefore this forum seemed like the best place to get informed.
What I would like to do is book a ticket to Taipei and travel to the Batanes and from there further to the northen coast of the Luzon Island to start my trip from there. (reason for this is that my return ticket will be from Jakarta and I want to go south through the Philippines and then Island hop my way to Jakarta.
Now I have no idea if this is a doable option. Are there flights from Taipei (or else in Taiwan) to the northern part of Luzon? Is traveling by boat an option and affordable?
Or.. would you guys recommend to just fly to Manilla instead, and book a domestic flight?
PS: what would be a nice way to travel to Banaue?
thanks in advance!
