It took my close to 30 years and a wedding invitation to finally get to The Philippines, but less than a year to get back for a second visit. Having dealt with a few awful call centres in Manila, I was surprised how easy going and friendly everyone was. Sorry!
Philippines boasts 1000s of island, beaches and diving, varied cultures and tribes, volcanos and forests. I have only been to 3 islands, Luzon, Cebu and Bohol, each spectacular in their own way.
Luzon’s ancient rice terraces are an incredible feat and sight. Bohol, home to the world’s smallest primates, is as pretty as islands come. Cebu has some cool hikes and if underwater is your thing, they say the diving is first class.
