INTRODUCING THE PHILIPPINES

The Philippines is an archipelago bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the east the Bashi Channel to the north the Sulu and the Celebes Seas to the south.

You can find the Philippine islands on the east of Vietnam, north of Indonesia. There are 7,107 islands that make up the Philippines and they’re divided intro three regions- Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Some islands have become bustling cosmopolitan cities, such as the capital Manila, the City of Cebu and Davao, while others are more remote and tropical, which offers something for every traveller. Wherever you go though you won’t ever be more than two hours away from one of its gorgeous beaches. The little group of islands make for one gigantic stretch of coastline-more than 15,500 kilometres in fact! Perhaps this is why the Philippines is dubbed to be one of the world’s friendliest cities by Forbes magazine

DIVE WITH WHALE SHARKS

Love the mysterious drama of this planet’s underwater kingdom? The Philippines is the right place. Those who choose to snorkel can enjoy simply hovering above glistening corals, inches from the hull of World War II shipwrecks. Pros may prefer to dive directly into the darker caverns of these sunken vessels and uncover history hatch by hatch.

The magnificent and varied coastline and crystal clear waters are just two of the reasons that the Philippines is nicknamed Asia’s Diving Capital. Dive among glistening coral in a World Heritage site, explore World War II wrecks or swim along the gentle giants-whale sharks. It really is a diver’s paradise. Don’t just take our word for it! Author and underwater photographer Robert Yin “Tubbataha Reef should be on the bucket list of every serious diver,”. To get there, you would have to book a live-aboard trip. Worth it, for hundreds of feet of visibility, and sharks and other pelagics at every turn.

More than 7,000 islands. Deserted white-sand beaches lined with tilting coconut trees. Protected marine parks with pristine reefs like giant tropical fish bowls. Surf breaks so phenomenal they draw the world’s best pros. Low-key but slick hotels, villas and some of the friendliest people on the planet. This is the glory of the Philippines.
