Philippines

With more than 7000 tropical islands, the Philippines are one of the largest archipelagos in the world. The country is characterized by a diverse landscape with desert islands and beaches, crystal clear lagoons, rich green rice terraces, breath-taking volcanoes, impressive dive sites and world-class surf spots. However, what makes the Philippines a must-visit destination are the incredibly warm and welcoming people. Over 120 spoken dialects, natural healers, a simple yet delicious local cuisine and graffiti-splashed jeepneys and tricycles in the towns make this culture unique around the world.
