Batangas and Beyond
Despite being a city, Batangas is laid-back and welcoming. The city’s university lends a youthful atmosphere to its themed bars and traditional restaurants — a contrast to the crumbling ancestral houses which line its streets. Perched on the coast of Luzon Island, Batangas is a short distance from some of The Philippines’ most renowned attractions. Discover pristine tropical beaches, dive with giant turtles and whale sharks, trek to emerald green rice paddies, and participate in a whole host of other adrenaline-inducing activities.
Home away from home
Once you land on Luzon Island, our in-country team will be ready to pick you up at the airport. From here, they’ll drive you to our private, catered accommodation. Suitable for students and professionals alike, living with like-minded individuals is a great way to settle quickly into an unfamiliar environment. Our team know Batangas and the surrounding area like the back of their hand; they’re always available to support you and will make sure both your clinical and travel experiences go smoothly. When it comes to food, our local chef cooks some of the most mouthwatering Filipino dishes around, as well as comforting Western classics. If you’ve got dietary requirements there’s no need to worry — everyone will be catered for.
VILLAGE HEALTHCARE ADD-ON
Grasping the rare opportunity to live in a rural Filipino village is one of the best ways to expand your clinical, cultural, and travel experiences. Living with a native host family, you’ll work in a nearby health clinic, getting to grips with a range of ailments from the local township. Come the afternoon, you’ll be free to immerse yourself in local culture and ancient tradition — whether it’s cooking lessons, making crafts, or exploring the surrounding natural beauty.
