How To Get The Most Out Of A Philippines Vacation

Aug 19, 2008
Southeast Asia is typically one of the most visited lands for western travelers, with the Philippines holding much of the credit for the tourism levels. The Philippines has some of the most beautiful scenery and the most entertaining environments in all of Southeast Asia, which makes it hard to single out attractions to do at any one point in time.

Tourists who haven't been scuba diving or snorkeling should make a good effort to do so while on vacation in the Philippines. Both acts are highly revered as one of the major tourist attractions since the Philippine terrain is very scenic when it comes to the underwater world. Many types of fish and reefs thrive in Philippine waters, and make for great photo opportunities.

Enjoying the scenery of the Philippine means exploring both the waters and the lands- in specifics the cliffs that adorn the Philippine land. Rock climbers travel from many locations just to get a shot at climbing some of the trickiest cliffs in Asia. And of course, the view is quite breath taking- which makes the sport all the more worth while. Small children probably won't be able to come along, but adults are encouraged to participate.

Many historic buildings are open to the public and are often great tourist attractions. Buildings such as the Manila Cathedral or the San Agustin Church show some of the best architecture designs in the Philippines. Young children probably won't enjoy the trip as much as adults, but it serves as a great cultural and historic lesson to the younger children.

It just wouldn't be a trip to the Philippines without a taste of the local food. Many types of seafood and local cultural favorites are available at the many markets. Manila in particular is a must-see if one is a food connoisseur. There are many different shops selling all types of food that is native to the Philippines- but be on the lookout for pickpockets and be sure to keep a close eye on the kids if applicable. It's always good to stay protective of one's belongings in big markets such as Manila.

Of course there is always the mandatory visit to the beaches of the Philippines, which are among the world's most highly rated beaches due to their scenery and favorable swimming conditions. Beaches in the Philippines typically have the "postcard" look in which the landscape couldn't be more perfect- something that is most definitely a photograph opportunity.
