Why it’s more fun in the Philippines

Why it’s more fun in the Philippines…

Traveling is enriching. Not only do you get to take home with you some souvenir items, but more importantly, you get to treasure priceless memories. But before jet setting all over the world, take time to explore your home land.

Here in the Philippines, we’ve got a lot of recognised tourist spots that are so fascinatingly beautiful, it makes you proud to be living in a country that is blessed with so much natural resources.

So here are the top reasons why you should travel in the Philippines:

1. Nature, Paradise Beaches and Idyllic Islands

Boracay. Palawan. Caramoan. These majestic islands have earned the praise from both local and international tourists and travel guides. People from all over the world rave about how beautiful and lush these islands are. And these are just few of the notable spots that get everyone talking (and flocking)… We’ve got 7,104 islands more for you to choose from to get that perfect sun-kissed getaway! All you have to do is choose and plan the trip now!

2. People and the Culture

You have to admit it, Filipinos are friendly, accommodating and hospitable. It is just the way we naturally are, be it to fellow Pinoys or foreigners. In fiestas, we invite people—even those we don’t know– to eat inside our house for them to taste our home-cooked meals! Also, much to the appreciation of tourists, we gladly entertain their queries whenever they’re lost or in need of some expert piece of advice where to go next. In the Philippines, it’s not just the weather that is sunny, people are also warm.

3. Food

Pinoys love to eat! And it obviously shows everywhere- from buffets to “unli” meals. Aside from our very own mouth-watering specialties such as adobo, kare-kare and sinigang, we’ve also got intriguing exotic delicacies like balut, kamaro, stuffed frogs and so much more. Since we’re an archipelago, sea foods are also very much available almost everywhere we go. They’re served fresh at an affordable price.

4. Language

We’ve got one official language which is Filipino, and several dialects, but we’re also very much proficient in the “universal language”—English. This makes it easier for us to communicate with people other than our own.

So what are you waiting for? Go and explore, after all, it’s more fun in the Philippines!

Cheers!
