More on the Philippines

Mabuhay! The Philippines is an alluring archipelago of 7,107 islands filled with natural wonders that are sure to amaze both foreign visitors and locals alike. It is the home of pure white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, colorful corals and oceanlife, perfect sunsets, pristine rainforests and dazzling volcanoes. Just experience walking on the pure white sand beach of Boracay, diving in Palawan, seeing the breath-taking view of Taal Volcano, trekking Mount Apo or the Banaue Rice Terraces, watching the beautiful sunset of Manila, and relaxing in the cool mountain air of Baguio.

Adding to its uniqueness, the Philippines is also rich in history and culture with influences from China, Spain, the U.S. and customs and qualities from the local indegenous people. This mix of culture can be seen in the food that Filipinos eat, the clothes that they wear, and the goods that are sold in the markets and malls.

Filipinos are naturally friendly and hospitable, always willing to welcome visitors and show them a great time. The favorite past time of Filipinos is eating, with meals served 5 times a day. As the fiesta islands of Asia, festivals are also common where a whole town celebrates its culture and traditions with food as well as dancing and singing - talents Filipinos seem to possess naturally. Filipinos are also very family-oriented. It is very common that parents, grandparents and children are all living in the same house or doing activities together like shopping or dining. Filipinos are also religious and Sundays are spent mostly going to churches.

So come and explore the different regions of this natural wonder of Asia and experience life as it should be.
