Discover the Philippines
Our islands such as Boracay, consistently cited by international travel publications as one of the world’s best beaches, serve as a must destination for water sports activities, enjoyment, and relaxation. Looking inland, our country’s varied landscape also offers breathtaking natural sights from the Chocolate Hills of Bohol, the perfect cone-shaped Mount Mayon in Albay, to the world’s smallest volcano of Taal featured in the international bestseller 1,000 Places to See Before You Die. While our 2000 year old Banaue Rice Terraces, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, continue to be regarded by many global experts as a celebration of our people’s genius and soul.
One can also try an adventurous trek to Mt. Pinatubo in Pampanga or Mt.
