    Day 4 to 7 Free Medical Clinics

    Day 8 GK Cavite Village and Amazing Race
    A relaxing "sleep in" to thank you for blessing the Baras locals with your skills and knowledge. We travel to Cavite where we will be staying at Gawad Kalinga (GK) Village.
    GK is impacting 3000 communities with an incredible goal to uplift 5 million Filipino's out of poverty by 2024. A village concert welcome is one you will never forget. By staying in a traditional GK house, you will gain
    an understanding of how blessed we are in the West. GK has a unique way to build peaceful communities. They invite locals from slum areas to give 1600 hrs of manual labour in exchange for a house. We put a twist
    on the Amazing Race theme and are you up for the challenge?

    Tagatay is a popular holiday town that sits on the ridge above Taal Volcano Island. The beautiful Taal Lake completes the magic of the area. We will stop at the People’s Park where our very own Trips+ guide “Imelda Marcos” will describe her pain at the never finished presidential mansion. View the spectacular views of Taal Volcano from Picnic Grove. Afternoon is free to laze around the pool or shop. For dinner we go to Sonia's famous organic restaurant.

Your friends will be wowed when you show them your pics from Red Lava. Afternoon is free to laze around the pool or shop.
