Philippines Travel; Feel the Relaxing Lifestyle of the Philippine Islands

Philippines travel welcomes you to the "Pearl of the Orient". The Philippines is an archipelago consisting of approximately 7,107 islands spread throughout tropical Southeast Asia.

Philippines travel is all about enjoying the unique Philippine environment and the warmth and friendliness of the Filipino people.

You can just as easily spend some time in the bustling metropolis of Manila or relaxing under a palm tree on some of the finest beaches in the world.

The Philippines boasts some wonderful marine life, countryside, city, shopping malls and tourist spots. The country is also rich in cultural heritage including the UNESCO heritage site Banaue Rice Terraces in Ifugao.

The three main areas of the country are; Luzon in the north, Visayas in the center, and Mindanao in the south. The capital is Manila, which is on the island of Luzon. The area around Manila is also called the National Capital Region consisting of several cities including Quezon City. Cebu City is the primary city in the Visayas, which was the landing place of the Spanish explorer Ferdinand Magellan. Davao is the main city in Mindanao.

The Philippine Islands are situated near the equator, so the climate is tropical year around. Hot and humid describes the typical day in the Philippines. However, in the mountainous areas it can be quite cool, such as in Baguio City.

Scuba diving, snorkeling, and other marine activities are very popular around the island chain. The Philippines is known to have one of the most diverse marine eco-systems in the world. You will be amazed and delighted at the coral reefs, tropical fish, manta rays, and the gentle whale sharks.

Philippines Travel- Boracay Beach
Philippines Travel - Boracay Beach

The number one Philippines travel tourist spot for both foreign and domestic tourists is Boracay. Boracay is a small island located in the center of the Philippines. It has been recognized as one of the best beaches in Asia and it certainly deserves the title. It has an approximately six kilometer long beach with numerous resorts lining its shore. There are accommodations to fit everyone's budget, from five star all-inclusive resorts, to pension houses for backpackers.

The primary points of entry into the country are through Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Clark Airport (Diosdado Macapagal International Airport) at Angeles City, Cebu City (Mactan-Cebu International Airport), and Davao City (Francisco Bangoy International Airport).

Through our Philippines travel guide we bring you the most current and relevant information related to Philippines travel so that you can truly enjoy your time around the islands.
