Philippines’ beauty is unmatched. With some of the most eye-candid natural wonders on the planet, there’s always something new to experience in the Philippines. Right from the turquoise blue waters of Kawan Falls, hanging coffins from the cliff in Sagada, the beautiful Banaue rice terraces, the active and complex Taal volcano in the capital city Manila, the ruins of the Talisay city, the magnificent waterfall restaurant in St Pablo city, the adrenaline pumping zip line taking in splendid beach views of Boracay, the stunning chocolate hills of Bohol and more, the Philippines is beauty extraordinaire. Here is a list of some of the best things to do in the Philippines to ensure a good time in the island nation.
Get tanned in Boracay Island
Head to the White Beach, spread across two and a half miles over the stunning white sand that curves around the edge of a green bay. With the rich backdrop of palm groves and crystalline waters, relax with your special ones at the White Beach. If you are more into chilling by the waters, visit Puka Shell Beach and the Diniwid Beach too.
Bask in Banaue Rice Terraces’ beauty
Considered as the “Eighth Wonder of the World”, the Banaue Rice Terraces are one of the precious hidden gems in the Philippines.
These rice terraces are over 2000 years old and were carved into the Ifugao mountains using ancient tools. You can either take a stroll on the lush green terraces or dine at one of the authentic local food cafes and satisfy your Filipino cravings!
Travel back in time at Vigan City
Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, visit the Vigan City if you wish to get a blast of the past. Head to Casa Crisologo, a famous town renowned for its remains – post the Spanish conquest. Filled with local artisans, workshops and museums – if you’re more of the offbeat traveller, Vigan City should definitely be on your Philippines tour package.
Explore The Mestizo District
The Mestizo District, or Kasanglayan (‘where the Chinese live’), is a network of lanes hemmed in between Liberation Blvd Plaza Burgos. It also houses the beautifully preserved Crisologo St where the architecture is spellbinding. You can wander amidst ancestral homes and colonial-era architecture. The mansions here are beautiful to look at – where a combination of Chinese and Spanish touch can be witnessed.
Marvel at the San Agustin Church
Located in Manila, the San Agustin Church is a classical building that was constructed during the Spanish Colonial Period. The church is made of stones that withstood major earthquakes on seven different occasions. Visit this magnificent church to explore the incredible history and take in its breath-taking beauty.
