you know the Philippines, with their tropical climate, then you
would not immediately expect that there are places where
pinetrees grow in the wild. Well, those places do exist
high up in the Cordillera mountains of Luzon. Sagada is a
small town located in a valley in the country's mountain
province. Although the region is stunning with its
mountains and rice terraces, the town is primarily known for an
ancient burial tradition: the coffins of the deceased are either
stacked in burial caves or hung on the rocks [explore
Nido is a community in the north of the island of Palawan.
It consists of the small town of El Nido and several barangays.
It lays in the Bacuit archipelago which has about 45 islands and
islets and is considered as one of the best island desinations.
What makes it really exceptional is the natural beauty: secluded
beaches, limestone cliffs, clear ocean, pristine forests,
mangroves and abundant marine life. Some places to make
you dream: Paradise Beach, Cathedral cave, the small Lagoon, the
big Lagoon, the secret Lagoon, helicopter island, snake island,..
The small island of Boracay is a real paradise on earth and one
of the most well known touristic hotspots in the Philippines:
white sandy beaches, palm trees, crystal water combined with a
tropical climate. Equipment for water sports which is sometimes
hard to find in many places in the Philippines or which is in
limited supply, is available here: jetskiing, parasailing,
windsurfing, kitesurfing,... At daylight the beach is a dream
location for getting that nice tan you always wanted or for
water sports, but at night the island transforms into a party
island [explore Boracay].
