The Philippines are an unjustly overlooked destination, overshadowed by the heavily promoted Thailand. This island paradise in the Pacific Ocean deserves your attention and is definitely worth a visit. The country’s beautiful natural vistas offer volcanic rocks rising steeply from the shores, turquois lagoons and snow-white beaches devoid of people surrounded by green tropical forests. Its well-known rise terraces with an intricate irrigation system are part of the UNESCO World Heritage.
The Philippines will seduce you not only with its breathtaking nature, but also a unique native culture influenced mainly by the Spanish conquistadores and American colonists. Local traditions mix with Catholicism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam. You can look forward to excellent local cuisine, dominated by rise, vegetables, fresh sea food and slow-cooked meat.
Get ready to forget all about civilization thanks to remote islands, thick tropical forests and unreliable supply of power. You will get to truly relax and enjoy your adventure.
