The Philippines is a kaleidoscope of a destination, impossible to define in parts, but as a whole, stunning without a doubt. By name it’s Asian, culturally it’s Austronesian with lots of Spanish influences blended with some American and Chinese hints. The country may have absorbed a bit of everyone that’s been there, but every traveler can attest that a bit of the country stays with them when they leave.
The country has over 7,000 islands, of which over 5,000 are uninhabited – some are private resort grounds for the lucky few. Dive in, and go in search of underground caves, or secret waterfall. Sacred volcanos and towering rainforests make you feel small, all the while reminding you of nature’s grandeur.
If you do your homework, you just might experience one of the country’s fiestas (there’s a lot of them). And if you plan accordingly, you will most definitely be able to dive into one of the country’s three biosphere reserves, including the cluster of sublime islands in Palawan.
