THE PHILIPPINES: Islands of Fiestas and Adventure
This archipelago of over 7,000 islands will take you by surprise with its Spanish roots and stunning natural gems. Get a glimpse of the colourful fiestas and diverse food choices, indigenous culture and colonial influences.
Even if you've heard about the unusual delicacy balut, the active volcano Mount Pinatubo and the bargain hub Greenhills Shopping Centre, there’s still much to find out about the Philippines. Our spotlight on Boracay has the top activities on this party island, including cliff diving, windsurfing, island hopping, and even hair braiding and henna tattooing!
Not only is the Philippines famous for its Halo-Halo (a dessert made of shaved ice and sweet condiments) and local versions of Spanish dishes such as Paella, Chicken Relleno and Adobo, this beautiful island also offers a variety of Halal food in certain Muslim areas of Manila and Mindanao. We also list some of the major festivals you shouldn’t miss, including Kadayawan, Ati-Atihan, Giant Lantern Festival and Aliwan Fiesta.
