Welcome to the Philippines

I have been travelling to the Philippines a number of times over the last 4 - 5 years of living here and a lot longer travelling here as a tourist, and during my travels there, I have collected lots of Philippine photos, travel stories, facts, advice, recipies and a whole lot more.

Adventures in the Philippines

Another adventure that is worth mentioning is mountain climping on Mount Apo in Mindanao or exploring the Ifugao's Eight Wonder of the World: The Banaue Rice Terraces in the northern part of Luzon Island, very close to the Hanging Coffins of Sagada and the summer capital Baguio.

One of the main sources of food in the Philippines is the ocean, the Philippines consists of over 7000 islands, so no matter where you go, you can get marvellous and very inexpensive seafood.

You dont have to look for long to find breathtaking scenery in the Philippines, this picture is from a remote beach on the north part of Mindoro, not far from the popular beaches of Puerto Galera.

Secluded Beaches

With its 7000+ islands you literally have thousands upon thousands of beaches. What are you waiting for, visit the Philippines and find your own secluded beach yourself.

To make a long story short, whatever you are looking for, you can find your paradise travelling in the Philippines, Boracay is one of the top 10 beaches in the world, the rice terraces are one of the worlds most breathtaking and beautiful sights, and then of course you got Manila, hate or love it, we can not get around Philippines without going through Manila, Manila has numerous parks, museums and sights worth seeing. You will also find world famous night spots in Manila.

The Philippine Fiesta is another sight to behold, especially the Ati Atihan fiesta in the Aklan province very close to Boracay.
