Philippines Travel Specialist

The Philippines is a diverse country known for its limitless hospitality and the friendly smiles of its people. Comprising more than 7,000 islands scattered gracefully along the westernmost rim of the Pacific Ocean, holidays to the Philippines are filled with a diverse and fascinating range of experiences and adventures, ranging from cultural interactions, historic explorations, and relaxing, drawn-out appreciations of the beautiful beaches and natural inshore landscapes.

Here travellers discover an intoxicating blend of old and new in the bustling capital of Manila, where quaint street stalls sit side by side with ancient Spanish churches and a growing array of modern high-rise buildings, shopping malls and karaoke bars.

Active visitors shouldn’t miss the opportunity to follow the trekking routes up the lush green Mt Pinatubo to admire the views over the crater lake, and stroll through UNESCO-listed rice terraces fields of Bangaan at Banaue. Of course, no trip to the Philippines would be complete without a day or two relaxing on one of their many idyllic beaches, of which you’re spoilt for choice.

Stefanie Studley
The Philippines is home to over 7,000 islands. Sitting in the sea off the coast of South-East Asia the archipelago can feel detached from the rest of the region whilst still retaining some of its defining characteristics. For a first-time visitor heading beyond Manila and not just looking for the beaches, we would suggest heading to Cebu where the diving can be spectacular, and where Cebu City has a lively nightlife and the food culture is recently coming up to speed – we can recommend Lahug for a wide variety of local delicacies and street food.

Stefanie's Tips
1
Music lovers: visit the Alegre Guitar Factory to see some of the best guitars in the world being made from Madagascan ebony.
2
Take a bumpy tour on a Jeepney – a modified jeep left over after WW2 – to see how the locals travel.
3
In Manila wander through the old colonial city of Intramuros to explore the walls and see the influences of the Chinese, Dutch, British, American and Japanese.
