What to do in the Philippines
The Philippines is an archipelago in Southeast Asia. Its three major island groups, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, are made up of more than 7,000 islands. You definitely won’t run out of fun things to do in the Philippines any time soon.
When in Manila, historical landmarks like Fort Santiago and Rizal Park are a must. Another great way you can experience a blast from the past is to visit the preserved city of Vigan in Ilocos Sur. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the finest example of Spanish colonial architecture in the Philippines.
The country is also filled with wonderful beaches and endless coastlines. Enjoy swimming in Cebu, have the ultimate beach party in Boracay, and go island-hopping in Palawan. If you love surfing and other water sports, stunning Siargao and Camarines Sur are perfect for you.
Want to enjoy cooler weather? Head to the nation’s summer capital and explore Baguio’s scenic parks. Tagaytay is also a great place to cool off, and you even get to see fantastic views of Taal Volcano. Another popular choice is Sagada where you can explore caves and camp in the mountains.
The Philippines also has the best mountains you’ll ever climb. There’s the famous Mount Apo in Davao, Mount Pinatubo in Zambales, and Mount Kanlaon in Negros Occidental. But the best one to climb for a sea of clouds is Mount Pulag in Benguet.
See the best of the Philippines and join their exciting festivals. The most popular ones are Bacolod’s MassKara Festival, Baguio’s beautiful flower festival Panagbenga, Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo, and the wild Sinulog Festival in Cebu. It’s also a great way to learn about the locals.
But before flying back home from the nation’s capital, you shouldn’t miss the most magnificent sunset in Manila Bay.
When to visit the Philippines
The best time to visit the Philippines is from November to May for the dry season, with December to April being the coolest and most pleasant months.
Filipino and English are the official languages here, so it’s easy to explore the country. You can even fly to the Philippines anytime because Australians don’t need a visa to visit for up to 30 days.
Travelling to and around the Philippines
From Australia, you’ll be landing at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. You can travel around the country quickly and easily because the Philippines has many airports across its islands. From there, start wandering the cities and regions by taxi, bus, jeepney, or boat.
