Owing to the numerous world-class and world-loved tourist destinations, the Philippines is a name to reckon with when it comes to tourist attractions. Set apart from mainland Southeast Asia geographically and culturally, the Philippines remains to be the only Catholic country in the region, the result of more than 3 centuries of Spanish rule. Having more than 7000 islands in its territory, the Philippines offers endless possibilities and opportunities as guests traverse from one island to another, getting a glimpse of what island life is like in these places. Serving as gateway to the countryside, Manila welcomes guests like its very own. Boracay Islands, the Underground River in Palawan, the Banaue Rice Terraces, the Chocolate Hills in Bohol, the cathedrals and old churches spread throughout the country – these are just some, and many more are on the list. The Philippines offers variety of experience – the sun, sand, sea, mountains, religious shrines, good food, friendly people, etc.

Travelers are conveniently served by public transportation system of bus lines, taxis, jeepneys and tricycles for the less distant destinations.
