Destinations at a Glance

Explore Exotic Philippines!

Delight your senses with an amazing variety!
Remarkably free of the trappings of mass tourism, this is the ultimate country if you are flexible and believe exploring is fun.

The 7,107 (!) islands of The Philippine Archipelago offer a remarkable range of land formations: world class limestone cliffs, a wide range of outdoor activities, superb diving, numerous hidden bays, white beaches, exotic coconut trees and bountiful opportunities for island hopping.

Village life still moves to different rhythms. Tribal cultures in the mountains are still alive, as their strong warrior tradition has helped keep outsiders from moving in.

Let us try to give you a kind of frame, based on our experience. Depending on your personal preferences and family circumstances, combined with things you want to see / do, plus the time you have, it might help you choose a destination suitable to your needs.
Please bear in mind that the daily challenge we face in our travel agency is that “holiday or vacation” is perceived differently by each individual.And by each nationality. Something “touristy” in The Philippines might be just up to your standards. “Not soo touristy” in The Philippines means quickly without the amenities and food variety you might be used too to relax.
