What to see in the Philippines

The Philippines is a country with a lot of diversity, from the beach to the mountains. Here are some of the places I'd recommend visiting:


Boracay is an island in the Philippines, located in the Western Visayas region. It's one of the top tourist destinations in the country and a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. Boracay has plenty of white sand beaches, which makes it an ideal place to relax on your vacation. If you're looking for adventure, though, there are plenty of other activities to choose from as well!


Manila is the capital of the Philippines, and it's a busy city with lots of traffic. There are many historical buildings and landmarks in Manila, including Intramuros (the old walled city), Malacañang Palace (where presidents live), Fort Santiago and San Agustin Church (both built during Spanish colonial times). You'll also find museums like Museum of Philippine Political History at Plaza Miranda and Museo Pambata at Rizal Park; monuments such as Rizal Monument or Arc de Triomphe de Napoleon III; parks like Luneta Park where you can see an old shipwrecked boat called "Baluarte" or Baywalk Mall which has an aquarium inside it!


Cebu is the second largest city in the Philippines, and it's known for its beaches and resorts. But there's more to Cebu than just sunbathing! Cebu has a lot of historical sites, such as Fort San Pedro (which you can still visit today). This ancient fort was built by Spanish colonizers in 1565 to protect them from attacks by pirates who came from nearby islands like Bohol and Negros. You can also visit Magellan's Cross--it's where Ferdinand Magellan planted his cross after discovering the Philippines during his famous voyage around the world with Juan Sebastian Elcano (who was also born in Cebu).


Tagaytay is a city in the province of Cavite, Philippines. It's known for its cool climate, and is a popular summer retreat for many people from Manila. The city's name comes from the Tagalog word taga-i; "taga" meaning "from" or "of", and ihod meaning land or place. Thus, Tagaytay literally means "land from somewhere else".

Mt. Mayon

Mt. Mayon is the tallest volcano in the Philippines, standing at an impressive 2,460 meters (8,070 feet) tall. It's located just outside of Legazpi City in Albay Province and can be reached by taking a bus or van from Manila or Cebu City to get there. The best time to visit Mt. Mayon is during its annual eruption cycle, which happens between December and April each year. You may also want to consider going during this time if you want a good chance at seeing some lava flows or witnessing an explosion!


Coron is a municipality in the province of Palawan, Philippines. It is known for its pristine beaches, as well as its location at the northernmost tip of Palawan. Coron Island is also located within this municipality and serves as an important tourist attraction because of its historical significance and natural beauty.

The Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park (TRNP) lies within Coron Bay and contains some of the most pristine coral reefs in Asia; however, it can only be explored via boat tours from Puerto Princesa or El Nido, both cities that are accessible by plane from Manila. These tours allow tourists to visit sites such as Twin Peaks (two towers rising out of deep water), Coral Garden (home to many types of corals), Wafer Drop-Off (where divers can see sharks) and more!

El Nido and Calaguas Islands (Island Hopping)

El Nido is a town in Palawan, the Philippines. It's known for its beaches and diving spots. The El Nido Marine Reserve, which covers more than 1,000 square kilometers (390 sq mi), has been designated as one of Southeast Asia's top ten dive sites by Scuba Diving magazine.

The Calaguas Islands are a group of islands near El Nido that are famous for their beaches and snorkeling opportunities.

Panglao Island (White Beach) and Bohol

Panglao Island is a small island that's part of Bohol. It has many resorts and restaurants, which makes it ideal for relaxing on the white sand beaches or enjoying the activities there. The Panglao Island Sand Bar (a bar on the beach) is one of the most popular places in Panglao because it offers exciting things to do like jet skiing, parasailing and snorkeling.

You can also visit some unique attractions nearby: For example, if you want to learn more about Philippine history then visit Tarsier Conservation Center where they have lots of tarsiers living in captivity so people can see them up close!

The Philippines is a country with a lot of diversity, from the beach to the mountains

The Philippines is a country with a lot of diversity, from the beach to the mountains. The beaches are great for surfing and relaxing on white sand, while you can also enjoy some trekking in one of many national parks or hiking up waterfalls. There are many volcanoes in the Philippines which you can visit if you're into geology and hiking up mountains. If you want to see something different, visit some historic architecture such as churches or temples scattered all over this beautiful country!

The Philippines is a country with a lot of diversity, from the beach to the mountains. If you want to see some of the best beaches in Asia then Boracay and El Nido are perfect for this. Manila is also worth a visit if only for its food!
