Top Five Scenic Spots to Visit in the Philippines II

by Unofre Pili on 28/05/08 at 6:52 am

Considering of visiting the Philippines? The following Philippine scenic spots are most rewarding for a visit.

Mayon Volcano 

Regarded as one of the most perfect cone in the world locates in the Bicol province of Southern Luzon. An active volcano but erupts in centuries interval. The volcano has been a boon for centuries to Bicolano farmers nearby, due to rich farm land brought forth by its tectonic activity.

Sunset at Manila Bay

Anywhere else in the world, exquisite sunsets that continues to fascinate lovers of nature are common sights, but at the historic Manila Bay as the sun slowly marches away from view, appears one of the most ravishing sunsets that nature has to offer.

Taal Volcano

Located in the mountainous region of Tagaytay, Northern Luzon is widely considered the world’s lowest active volcano. This unique land feature is a grand sight to behold on overlooking rest houses that are bathed in gentle and crisp mountain breeze. These well-developed rest houses with enough plain space around for picnic and children’s playground are ideal for taking a break from the humdrum of everyday city life.

Banaue Rice Terraces

Sometimes considered as one of the wonders of the world is located in Batad, Mountain Province in Northern Luzon. This historic rice terraces so unique in the world was built by the native Ifugao of the province. This splendid man-made prehistoric structure is now preserved by the Philippine Government for heritage and for all tourists around the world to see.

Chocolate Hills

A panoramic view of this seeming ocean of hills provided by an elevated guest house lying on top of a mountain is perhaps one of the most arresting sights one could experience his whole life. Geologists speculated these little mountains that turn brown (thus the name chocolate) every summer due to blighting grasses were remnants of corral refs when this tiny Island province of Bohol was under sea some two million years ago.

Some interesting photos..you might want to correct some of the English even though it is understood. For your first picture you may have wanted to say that the Mayon volcano is ‘active even tough it erupts every hundred years’, or the volcano erupts at one hundred year intervals….in English we don’t say that something erupts “in centuries interval”. This is just some friendly advice.

it was 1986 when i visited in Bantangas and i saw Taal Volcano and of course the Taal Lake. it was awesome but maybe it is now more beautiful today as compared before.
Wish i can go back there and even visit in Albay, Bohol, Manila and in Banawe. So fulfilling to me

I am still 6th grade and I just passed by for a project and I really love the Philippines! There really is no place like home. I am really proud to be a Filipino and Philippines not only has scenic spots but also a colorful culture and history.

One of the reasons why I am proud of being a Filipino is because of these wonders. I consider it as a world class attraction.
