The Philippines is one of those destinations that is largely underrated amongst southeast Asia destinations. The country is justifiably famous for its beaches and is home to over 7000 beautiful islands. This diverse country offers a wealth of wonderful sights and experiences such as the white sandy beaches, crytal clear waters, gleaming emerald-coloured volcanoes and lakes, and impressive rice fields and mountains.
The Philippines, officially known as the Republic of the Philippines is an archipelagic country in Southeast Asia. It has 7,641 islands spanning more than 300,000 square kilometres of territory. The islands are broadly categorised under three main geographical divisions from north to south: Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The Philippines is the third largest English Speaking country in the world. It has a rich history combining Asian, European and American influences. Prior to Spanish colonisation in 1521, the Filipinos had a rich culture and were trading with the Chinese and the Japanese.
It’s tough to think of a more beautiful corner of the world than the Philippines, with white sand beaches, bath-temperature water, and incredibly friendly locals. The beaches are regarded as some of the best in the world, as are the diving opportunities, and the welcoming nature of the Filipino people is unwavering.
