Chocolate Hills, Bohol
Chocolate Hills, Bohol, Philippines

Soak in the iconic sight of Bohol Island’s cone-shaped hills. This natural monument consists of at least 1,260 hills over an area of more than 50km2. Made of limestone, the grass in the rainy season gives them a soft lush appearance. In the summer, the grass turns from vibrant green to chocolate brown – giving them their name, Chocolate Hills.

Banaue Rice Terraces
Nueva Vizcaya - Ifugao - Mountain Province Rd, Banaue, Ifugao, Philippines

Unveil the beauty of the UNESCO World Heritage listed terraces and appreciate the ingenuity, culture and tradition from the Ifugao people who carved these “stairways to heaven” out of necessity 2,000 years ago.

Mount Mayon, Albay
Mayon Volcano, Albay, Philippines

Renowned for having a perfect conical shape, this active volcano is a breath-taking piece of scenery which attracts tourists from around the world. For those adventurous enough, try exploring the volcano’s crater by All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) tour.

Tinuy-An Falls, Surigao del Sur
Borboanan, Bislig, Surigao del Sur, Philippines

Dubbed as the ‘crown jewel’ of Surigao del Sur for its majestic beauty, this multi-tiered waterfall cascades down 95 metres wide and 180 feet high. Often described as the “Little Niagara Falls of the Philippines”, it is best experienced closeup by bamboo raft. 

Biri Island Rock Formations, Northern Samar
Biri Island, Bayan ng Biri, Hilagang Samar, Philippines

The Biri Rock Formations are composed of six rock islands where the San Bernardino Strait meets the Pacific Ocean. These islands are made of distinct and interesting shapes formed from the strong tidal forces that have repeatedly smashed these islands for the past 23 million years.

Hundred Islands National Park, Pangasinan
Alaminos, Pangasinan, Philippines

Made up of 124 islands featuring white sand beaches and forested inland, these islands are popular for their magnificent natural geological formations. Scattered amongst 16.7km2 in the Lingayen Gulf, it is ideal for swimming, diving and snorkelling.

Sohoton Cove, Bucas Grande Island

Taal Volcano, Batangas
Taal Volcano, 266 A. Mandigma St, Mataas Na Kahoy, Batangas, Philippines

Take a daytrip from Manila and visit Taal Volcano, a stunning geographical wonder as it is a volcano within a lake – within a volcano. This beautiful sight can be admired from the ridge or highlands of Tagaytay.

Sta. Cruz Island, Zamboanga
Grande Santa Cruz Island, Zamboanga, Philippines

Discover the island’s fine, pink sand beach where the unique colour comes from bright red organ-pipe coral dissolved by waves. If you walk along the beach, there’s a good chance that you’ll see these corals that are washed ashore.
