Philippines Destinations

Discover the Best Islands and Cities in the 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. The list of stunning destinations at hand in the island country is simply astonishing. 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. Bohol, home to the unforgettable Chocolate Hills, is one of the most tourist-oriented of the Visayas islands, followed closely by Mactan Island, which is particularly geared towards tourism with its many dive centres. Boracay (also in the Visayas) is a lazy place, favoured by beach lovers and party goers. 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 1,500 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. Summing up, you’ll need more than one vacation to discover all that the Philippines hosts in matter of dream holiday destinations. Check out below the characteristics of the most popular areas to visit in the Philippines.
