The list of reasons why you should consider Philippines travel is practically endless. Firstly, the Philippines is one of the largest and most gorgeous collection of islands in the world. We’re talking over 7,100 individual islands with crystal-clear, turquoise-coloured waters, and smooth white sands that are home to a mind-blowingly diverse group of plant an animal life. The amazing Philippines island paradise of your dreams is probably right here. And that’s just the basic stuff. Filipinos are friendly and hospitable, and have created some of the best dishes in the world by blending Mexican, American, Chinese, Spanish, and Japanese cuisines. Try Sinigang, a sour, tamarind based soup, fish tinola, or banana ketchup, which is just as magical as it sounds. There’s also adobo with chicken or pork, coconut rum, and some interesting local beers. The Philippines is a unique entity among its surrounding countries. Culturally charming and quirky, while being beautiful and delicious, all at once.
Sure, there are a few epic adventure destinations on this big, blue planet, but there is nothing at all that compares to a Philippines adventure. While most travellers choose to visit Thailand or Vietnam, the islands of the amazing Philippines are often overlooked, which means unspoiled beaches and incredible dive sites that aren’t filled with tourists. Tropical islands inhabited by hundreds of animal species like monkeys, lizards and tarsiers are ripe for exploration. Lakes, caves, waterfalls, these islands have it all. If you’re looking to escape boring and ordinary while giving your adrenaline and sense of wonder a boost, Philippines travel is one of the best options around.
There are so many special things to be discovered in the Philippines. From each island, each tasty local dish, and every Filipino resident you meet, you’ll stretch yourself far beyond what you’ve already seen and experienced in the world. So, what better way to enjoy this incredible country than an authentic, adrenaline-pumping adventure?
