The Philippines: Eight Spectacular Places to Visit

For those who love traveling, Philippines may be the best place to visit.

For those who love traveling, Philippines would be the best place to visit. There are many tourist destinations found within the boundaries of this country, may it be natural or man-made structures. What is unique with this country is that it is divided into islands or what we call an archipelago, there are so many beaches that we could visit. Tourists of different countries who have already gone to the Philippines choose to go back because not only do they enjoy the sites, but they also liked the attitudes of the people there. Below are the examples of the places you could visit:

  1. Boracay

    This place is famous for its white sand beach, and also for the coral reefs and the sea creatures. Last Year, Yahoo announced that Boracay Beach is the most popular beach all over the world and the 7th best beach among beaches. When I went there I was surprised that it is even better than those pictures I have.

  2. Bohol

    Bohol is found In the Central Visayas Region. This place is famous for its Chocolate Hills. The smallest primate is also found here.

  3. Cebu

    I can tell you that this place is beautiful because this is where I live. The beaches, hotels, malls are all amazing.

  4. Zamboanga

    Zamboanga is a corrupted word for the Bahasa Sug jambangan, which means garden. This is considered to be the 6th largest island of the Philippines. The most visited place here is the Santa Cruz Island for it pink Coral Sand.

  5. Ilo-ilo

    Ilo-Ilo is formerly known as the Queen City of the South because of the big profits that this profit gain. This Province is famous for the old style Churches. This is the place where our famous national hero Jose Rizal bought his hat.

  6. Guimaras

    This place is just northwest of Ilo-Ilo. This is one the greatest rival of Boracay for its beaches also have white sand.

  7. Palawan

    Palawan is considered to be the “last frontier” of the Philippines. This place has UNESCO WORLD Heritage Site, and these are the Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park and the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park.

  8. Davao

    Davao is from the word “daba-daba” which means fire. Five of the major fishing sites are found here in Davao. This place is also famous for its durian fruits.

I would love to go to the Philippines. I want to go to the reef that is aUNESCO site and the underground river that is another UNESCO
site. I also want to go because my husband is filipino. His dad’s family still lives there. I would love to surprise him for his birthday or Christmas soon.
The Country is very beautiful. I love Cebu from pictures my best friend brings every time she visits home.

I had my vacation in the Philippines a few months ago. It was probably one of the most exotic places I’ve ever been to. The only downside I could think about my trip was Boracay. Boracay is a beautiful island and have very nice people. There are endless activities to do. The only problem I had was the trash on the beach waters. It was uninviting to swim if you see dirty diapers floating around.
Besides that one problem, it’s a very nice country to visit.

I have gone to Zamboangga and Cebu. Zamboangga is really suited to be called city of flowers….yes it is. Just traveling along the way you could see flowers in the islands of the roads…very attractive. In Cebu…i was amazed when i reach the placed called “Tops”. It is the highest place in Cebu where you can see the beauty of Cebu at night and another attraction there is the Taoist Temple.. placed on the higher place where you can see also the beauty of the place….overlooking the lower lands …so fascinating…a very beautiful place really…

…wow talaga ang philippines….ty!!!
