    Everything you Need to Know about Philippines

    The Philippines has almost everything a holidaymaker could desire. It is something of an undiscovered gem, though it is probably the most westernized Asian nation. Malapascua Island lies eight kilometres northeast of Cebu, and is the most tourist-oriented of the Visayas islands, followed closely by Bohol, home to the unforgettable Chocolate Hills. Mactan is particularly geared towards tourism with its many dive centres. The island of Cebu is the place to head for to see cultural attractions and alongside Manila, it is an inevitable port of call for travellers. Borocay (also in the Visayas) is a lazy place, favoured by divers and backpackers. And one can certainly see why, with its pristine beaches and utterly relaxed atmosphere, it’s the stuff of dreams.

    Palawan is the country's largest province, with more than 1,000 islands and islets of its own. Its nearest neighbour is North Borneo and is famous for its superb cliffs and is the habitat of 232 endemic species, existing within the region's tropical forests. This is marketed as the Philippines' hub for eco tourism. Luzon is the most economically important of all the regions. Home to Metro Manila – the country's capital – tourist attractions include rice terraces and mountain tribes in the northern part of the island and the volcanoes Pinatubo, Taal and Mount Mayon.
