The Philippines is located in Southeast Asia and it is comprised of over 7000 islands. The capital, Manila, is the most populous city in The Philippines.

The inhabitants of the Philippines are known to be very friendly and welcoming people. It’s also, curiously, the selfie capital of the world. They sure love social media.

Notoriously, The Philippines’ former first lady, Imelda Marcos, assembled the world’s largest shoe collection.

General Information

Known as the largest Catholic country in Asia, The Philippines is an archipelago with many areas of great natural beauty. It’s islands are separated into three distinct island groups: Mindanao, Visayas and Luzon.

The islands came under the sway of the Spanish empire from 1521 until 1899, when the United States took over. Japan brutally took over the island from 1941 until 1945. It gained independance after the war and, after some difficulties, caught up economically with its neighbourhoods.

Its culture is very diverse. English is widely spoken. So much so that most Philippine authors write in English. The culture is vibrant and outward-looking: people love to drink, sing, eat and enjoy the good life.

What Everyone Does In The Philippines

You’ll want to go island hopping on a bamboo boat. On your travels you must visit the limestone islands of Bacuit Bay. Here you’ll fine stunning landscapes and world class beaches.

What Some People Do In The Philippines

Go do some karaoke and hang out in shopping malls. Seriously, people here love to eat junk food, hang out in malls and sing like crazy on the karaoke.

What No One Else Does In The Philippines

Climb the volcanoes of Camiguin. It’s less visited by tourists and relatively unspoiled. You’ll also find hot and cold springs.
