Consisting of 7,107 islands (1,000 inhabited), 97 ethnic groups and 101 dialects/languages, the Philippines is known as "The Smile of Asia", due to its people's hospitality and many festivities or 'fiestas'. Spanish and American influences are strongly evident in its culture. Many tourists have described it as 'a slice of Latin America in Asia', or 'the most westernized Asian country'. Stop by and you will never know a more hospitable and friendly place to vacation.
The archipelago is famous for the contrast between huge and modern metropolis like Manila or Cebu, the primitive tribal territories, the deserted islands, the clear sea

The Philippines is a nice and friendly place to visit. The people speak English, as it is an official language.

The capital city Manila is noisy, gritty, and tough--yet very charming, cosmopolitan, vibrant and exciting (very New York City). Malling is a favorite Philippine pastime as many shopping centers dot the metropolis. The old seedy image of Manila nightlife has been replaced with classy restaurants, quaint hole-in-the-wall yet must-see spots, "it" bars, and cozy cafes (very strong cafe culture in the past few years, a night out or "gimmick" usually ends with a coffee nightcap at Figaro, Coffee Bean, Segafredo or the ubiquitous Starbucks). As in most major cities, urban poverty is evident in Manila with its shanties and streetchildren.

Be sure to visit Baguio City, the summer capital of the Philippines. A long yet smooth 6-7 hour drive from Manila, Baguio boasts of a cool climate (peculiar in the Philippines as it is a tropical country), a lot of sights to visit (Mines View Park, Baguio Botanical Gardens, just to name a few) and lots of stuffs to buy (silvercrafts, plants -- that don't live beyond Baguio's cool confines -- vintage clothes, handicrafts, among others)

You can't visit the Philippines without visiting the beach. Whether it's the wild (and slightly seedy) beaches of Puerto Galera, exotic Amanpulo and El Nido in Palawan, relaxing Bohol, Sajorda River Park in Iba, Zambales and its coastal white fine sand & crystal clear water or the place-to-be Boracay, the Philippines has a beach that suits your budget, style, and personality. Because of the extensive road network and cheap airline fares, going to these places is fairly easy.

CLIMATE

The Philippines has two very different climate zones. In the coastal and lowland areas there's a typically tropical marine climate: hot and humid throughout most of the year. However, most of the year constant sea breezes temper the climate somewhat except during the dry summer months from March to the end of May. The two main seasons are wet and dry; the dry season from mid-November to mid-May from November to the end of February enjoying cool, ocean breezes with March to May with being the hottest,up to 38C and the wet season from June to October being hot and humid. Every year during the rainy season nearly 20 typhoons, known as "bagyos" blow across the islands usually lasting 3 or 4 days. Steamy, sunny days during the wet season are common after the tropical downpours of heavy rain during the nights and early mornings.

In the highest elevations of 1200 meters and above in the Mountain and Ifugao provinces of Luzon and in several areas of Mindanao the climate can be very cold often under 10c especially at night until mid-morning. Although there is a dry season in the the higher elevations of Luzon it is much shorter and not nearly as hot. In most of Mindanao there isn't any clearly defined dry season with a wet and wetter climate making it hot and humid weather all year round.

January is usually the coldest month with an average temperature of 25.5°C (78°F), while April and May are the hottest from 28°C (83°F) up to 38C (100 F). April and May though very hot, are the best times of year for scuba diving with the greatest visibility, mountain trekking and festivals. Rainfall varies, but most places south of Luzon get rain year-round. Beware of typhoons between May and November but although these can cause great damage in the "eye of the storm" usually it just means some strong winds for one day and extra heavy rain for 3 days.But the philippines is usually hot or warm.

In the Philippines, there are many great places to shop but it all depends on what you intend to buy and your budget, of course.

For a great day of handicrafts shopping, you can check out the Ilalim ng Tulay market, next to Quinta Market on Carlo Palanca St, Quiapo or the variety of handicraft places at Nayong Pilipino (Philippine Village). If time does not permit you to go around the country, good souvenirs shopping can be done any major department store such as the Filipiniana sections at SM or Robinson's malls. The El Amanecer building at General Luna St. in Intramuros also house a few shops selling handicrafts. In this building, among the many popular shops are Silahis, which sells art and crafts, Chang Rong that sells antiques and Galeria de las Islas that sells paintings and sculpture. If you're looking for something unique such as handicrafts made by the ethnic minorities on Mindanao, you might want to visit T'boli Arts and Crafts on Mabini St., Ermita.

Apart from the smaller handicrafts' shops, the shopping haven of Philippines also offer great buys at big shopping centers. For moderately priced items, there is the Araneta Shopping Complex in Cubao. This shopping complex has 2,000 stores offering a wide variety of items for shoppers to choose from. Another shopping complex to look out for is the Greenhills Shopping Center on Ortigas Ave, San Juan. This shopping center has a wide selection of restaurants ranging from the upmarket restaurants to fast-food chains, a supermarket, several banks and cinemas as well as arcades with small but elegant boutiques.

Not far from the Greenhills Shopping Center, you can see Robinson's Galleria. This shopping complex has a large selection of eating outlets and several fully air-conditioned floors of shops. Located on Harrison St., Malate, is the Harrison Plaza. Similar but slightly bigger than Robinson's Shopping Center in Ermita, Harrison Plaza has many different shops under one roof.

Ayala Center in Makati is a modern shopping district offering a wide selection of shops selling things ranging from imported luxury items to local yet quality basics. Ayala Center is a destination in itself, with anchor department stores (SM and Landmark -- affordable, Rustan's --expensive, world-class brands), bars and restaurants, specialty stores, and moviehouses. Connected via elevated walkways, the Ayala Center consists of Glorietta (1 to 4) and Greenbelt (1-3). Greenbelt is an award-winning lifestyle destination with upclass shops and happening hotspots.

Another huge air-conditioned and popular shopping center in the Philippines is SM City on the corner of Edsa and North Ave, Quezon City. This shopping haven allows shoppers the convenience of purchasing almost everything under one roof. The SM group of companies also own other SM shopping centers around the Philippines such as SM Centrepoint on Aurora Blvd and SM Megamall, Edsa which includes a large selection of shops and facilities such as an ice-skating rink.

As what they say about the Philippines, "If you dont like Boracay island, you still have 7,107 left to choose from".

Palawan, Philippines

by aurora620 about Puerto Pension

It was our first time in Palawan... the whole clan complete with grandparents and our kids - a 5 yr old and a 15 months old.

Ms. Bel, one of the staff was very nice. She made recommendations - tours / restaurats / kid's food, etc that was really good. She arranged for the tours as well. She gave us tips on the trips and how to get around. Good people really makes a difference.

The rooms were small but clean and comfy. Breakfast was filling and on time.

Only one minor setback. Lunch at the restaurant of Puerto Pension (Tribu) took a while to be served. Food was ok, but it took almost an hour for them to serve the food.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Puerto Pension. Ms. Bel and the rest of the staff made all the difference. The place is also near the promenade near the seashore if you'd want to take a walk.

AMANPULO

by Rastarigo

"Island of Inspiration"

No, I've never been to this island. Only local superstars and Hollywood celebrities can afford a stay on the island. Aman president once rated the beach of Amanpulo to be the best beach he has ever seen, and the best beach among the Aman resorts. One visitor even compared and ranked Boracay only second to that of Amanpulo. Maybe because the fact that only the rich and famous do reach in paradise can keep the serenity, exclusivity and purity of the beach. No coliforms from human waste, unlike Boracay wherein thousands of feet trample trash its white sand...That is why the likes of Sharon Cuneta, Kris Aquino, Mariah Carey, David Hasselhoff prefer to stay on this island, its remoteness can dampen the spirits of the paparazzi. Someday one day I can be filthy rich and lay my towel on this beaaauuuutiful beach!

Cuyo and Quiniluban Isl- Has anyone been there?

by greorge_11

Hi! Has anyone been to Cuyo and Quiniluban Group of islands? Does anyone know any resorts there aside from Amanpulo because its expensive there? How do you get to these islands? I've read in the "travelphil book" that there are good coral formations and good white sand beaches in taytay island near tinituan island. Please tell me all you know about Cuyo and quiniluban for me to see if it is worth travelling there. THank you!

RE: Cuyo and Quiniluban Isl- Has anyone been there?

by vincenzooo

As far as I know, the Cuyo Islands in Palawan is a protected area, that's why you don't find a lot of resorts there except for Amanpulo which is the most expensive resort in the Philippines. If Amanpulo is not an option for you, do consider the resorts of Taytay, Palawan such as Club Noah Isabelle or Flower Island.They are also pricy but not as much as Amanpulo.

Regards!

Hi there,

So how was your trip yo Cuyo? Now, do you know of any regular passenger boat going to Coron from Cuyo. Thanks.

Has anyone stayed at Club Noah recently?

by testnstuff

I've been looking for a high end resort in Palawan and it seems the best ones are fully booked except for Club Noah so I'm starting to wonder if there was any damage to the place or risky for foreigners at this time. Any feedback you can provide will help.

Re: Has anyone stayed at Club Noah recently?

by Rastarigo

is amanpulo also fully booked? palawan has never been headlined negatively in the last 5-6 years so that will suffice to say that the island is safe.

Re: Has anyone stayed at Club Noah recently?

by allelli

I agree with Rastarigo, palawan is safe, try Amanpulo that is the number one high end resort in Palawan.

Re: Has anyone stayed at Club Noah recently?

by backpacker24

The main reason why Club Noah might not be full at this time is because it is too expensive. LOL But pretty much, Palawan is safe. The best I've ever been to. Maybe you should check Miniloc or Lagen Islands in El Nido.

Re: Has anyone stayed at Club Noah recently?

by Yob

You can also try Club Paradise. Its a nice resort plus if you're diving, you can mingle with dugong (sea cow) in the island.

Coron or El Nido

by scarp601

We only have 2N/3D in Palawan in either of these 2 places. Which would you suggest? Places we are considering staying is either Club Paradise or Lagen/Miniloc Island. Activities: we like snorkeling, swimming, island hopping and all other water sports. We won't have time for hiking or caving. Thanks.

RE: Coron or El Nido

Thanks but I was asking for insights for either of these 2 places only.

RE: RE: Coron or El Nido

by wanderer9020

ohh,, im soo stupiddd,,lol, i regret it..

RE: Coron or El Nido

by lil_mamba1409

With such a short time you have, you better stick around El Nido area.You can do one day island hopping ,visiting isolated beaches so pretty and combine it with snorkelling, and just enjoy your time not in such a rush to do this and that,not exhausting yourself at the end of the day.El Nido area can be a taster of the islands,which is also close to ameties ,several resorts and places to eat etc or if you feel like exploring outside your resort and look around the area.
Coron is known for it's wreck dives and hiking over the lakes etc stunning landscapes,you need more days than just 3 days to have a relaxing memorable experience of your trip.With it better set another visit specifically for Coron .
