The ideal duration of your stay depends on the number and types of destinations you’ll visit.
Two to three days are enough to explore a beach destination like Boracay and Bohol. If you’ll visit Puerto Princesa, El Nido, and Coron in Palawan, you should allot more than a week to explore the best tourist spots there.
Consider extending your stay for a week if you’ll be having side-trips to nearby tourist spots (e.g., Iloilo-Guimaras/Antique trip). Your trip could be longer, lasting for about two weeks to a month, if you’re a backpacker hopping from one island or province to another (e.g., Palawan-Cebu-Bohol trip).
In destinations like Intramuros, Vigan, Tagaytay, Subic, and Bataan, a day trip, an overnight stay, or a weekend trip will cover all the best attractions.
