Made up of more than 7,000 islands scattered around the westernmost rim of the Pacific Ocean’s “Ring of Fire”, the Philippines is a country known for its incredible natural beauty, friendly local people and Spanish colonial past. The archipelago offers endless possibilities for discovery and adventure such as diving with Whale Sharks, trekking up volcanoes and surfing some of Asia’s best breaks. For those looking for something more leisurely, the Philippines is home to some of the world’s most stunning beaches where you can just kick back, relax and take it all in.
From the historical, pulsating capital of Manila, to the tropical island paradises of Palawan and Bohol, the Philippines is a country of great contrast, a mix of old and new, tribal and contemporary, the wild and the luxurious. It is a great option for those who have already visited some of the regions more frequented tourist destinations and are now looking for something new and exciting, unusual and fascinating.
One of the most memorable highlights for any traveller to the Philippines, aside its many wondrous sights and breathtaking islands, is the Filipinos themselves. The Filipinos are incredibly friendly folk who have a remarkable ability to accept and assimilate foreign cultural influences and yet think and behave in a manner that is uniquely Filipino. Wherever you travel in the Philippines you will be sure to be greeted with smiles and a warm “Mabuhay”, or hello.
