Smouldering volcanoes, turquoise blue waters, gorgeous islands, emerald green rice fields, megacities, and quirky, happy people; this is the Philippines. Whether you’d like to just laze in the sun and explore islands and work on your tan or just chill out with a cold beer and street food – the Philippines has something for everyone. The mixture of Malay, Spanish and American influence can all be felt here and it creates an exciting country to explore for any visitor.
Often overlooked as an affordable, sun-fueled destination from other busier Asian countries like Thailand or Malaysia, a visit here will not disappoint. Adventurous travellers can just pitch a tent on a deserted stretch of coastline on many islands. Now, doesn’t that sound idyllic?
