Fantastic Philippines

As an archipelago in Southeast Asia, the Philippines is a unique country.  It is made up of no less than seven thousand islands that lie between Philippine Sea and the South East China Sea.  Weather is very tropical in general but between March and May the heat can be scorching. Strong typhoons can occur in October, so packing Hawaiian shirts and flip-flops isn’t exactly a good idea. 

Tourists can join in with the local festivities, for example Easter Sunday.  The Chinese New Year offers plenty of colour and street parades and Eid-ul-Fitr offers Muslim tourists a more sombre experience of prayer and ritual.  Don’t forget Christmas Day also in Baguio, where many tourists tend to flock to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Visayas is the region of islands located centrally and the most attractive destination in the Philippines to tourists wanting to avoid religion and culture and soak up some sea and sand.   They have the best beaches throughout and for nature lovers provide biodiversity in great quantity.
