The Philippines formally best-known as the Republic of the Philippines “Republika ng Pilipinas” in Filipino, is a country in Southeast Asia in the western Pacific Ocean. To its northbound across the Luzon Strait lies Taiwan. Westbound across the South China Sea sits Vietnam. The Sulu Sea to the southwest lies between the country & the island of Borneo, and to the south the Celebes Sea separates it from other islands of Indonesia. It is bounded on the east by the Philippine Sea. Its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire & its tropical climate make the Philippines prone to earthquakes & typhoons but have also endowed the country w/ natural resources & made it one of the richest areas of biodiversity in the world. An archipelago comprising 7,107 islands, the Philippines is categorized broadly into three main geographical divisions: Luzon, Visayas, & Mindanao. Its capital city is Manila.

Philippines is a place of natural wonders – a string of coral-fringed islands strewn across a vast expanse of the western Pacific. Below sea level, the Philippines holds numerous of the world’s best diving and snorkelling, including wreck diving around Coron and swim with the whale sharks off Donsol. Above sea level, it has a fantastic landscape with marvels enough to stagger even the most jaded traveller: Mayon Volcano of Albay, Banaue Rice Terraces and fascinating reminders of the islands’ history in places such as Intramuros & Vigan. If you’re after palm-fringed, white-sand beaches, try laidback Pagudpud or Boracay.
