Wake up to enthusiastic morning greetings of ‘magandang umaga po’ in this sunshine-filled destination. With thousands of islands strewn across this southeast Asian wonder, the Philippines has it all: trekkable mountains, inviting beaches, emerald green rainforests and some of the best diving spots in the world.
Embrace the chaotic charm of the capital Manila, where a kaleidoscope of gourmet restaurants, art stores and palaces vie for attention. Elsewhere, you'll find the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Banaue and its acres of hilltop rice terraces, the mysterious underground Hinagdanan caves in Bohol and Tagatay’s volcano island with a charming 18-hole golf course in the highlands. The Philippines is an exotic mix of natural beauty, paradisical beaches and rich cultural heritage in just the right blend.
