Philippines Hotels & Travel Guide
Philippines Travel Information
The Philippines is the place some believe to be the real inspiration behind the Alex Garland’s novel – The Beach (the author lived and travelled there). If you’re looking for a new Asia experience, the archipelago consisting of over 7,107 islands is well worth considering. The world’s 12th most populous country, it has a population of around 90 million people, the majority of whom are renowned for their great sense of rhythm and talented vocal prowess.
The country is blessed with white-sand beaches, pale blue seas, amazing corals and fish, lagoons, mountains, rivers, rice terraces and volcanoes. Days can be spent exploring the diverse and sometimes challenging terrain, en route to cascading waterfalls and dramatic caves. The fine sand beaches that fringe the Pacific Ocean offer the ideal base for a relaxing holiday, perfect for lounging and taking in the delightful surroundings.
