The Philippines is one of the most diverse archipelagos in Southeast Asia, with over 7,000 islands in the Pacific Ocean. The charming people, clear waters and pure white sand beaches make the islands some of the most beautiful on earth, and the Philippines also has superb diving and snorkeling opportunities.
The charm of the Filipino people and its crystal-clear waters make the Philippines one of the most stunning and romantic untouched areas on Earth. Poised on the edge of Southeast Asia and looking out to the Pacific, the Philippines are a fascinating and diverse archipelago. The most popular form of transport is by Jeepney. These brightly colored ex-army Jeeps are renowned for their flamboyant designs and have become a symbol of the Philippine culture. Scott Dunn’s highlights for the Philippines:
- Enjoy the stunning Palawan archipelago. Taste cocktails at the floating bamboo Kawayan bar on Pamalican Island for a brilliant sundowner experience.
- Take the time to explore the vibrant Chinatown neighborhood in Manila. Head through the goodwill arches, and spend an afternoon wondering around its exotic markets and teahouses.
