The Philippines is home to nearly 7,000 islands, several indigenous tribes and very friendly locals. Its environment is made up of these tropical islands, as well as lakes, rivers, beaches, mountains and forests. A trip here has no limits as to things to experience. Those who enjoy climbing and hiking should head to Mayon Volcano, where you can do those activities and see the most active volcano in the Philippines. Go on a guided paddleboat tour on the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, the longest navigable underground river in the world, and visit a top tourist attraction, the Chocolate Hills, which are these unusual mounds scattered throughout the inner part of Bohol. There are more than 1,200 of these formations. If traveling to Manila, a must-see is San Agustin Church. It’s the oldest stone church in the Philippines and has survived multiple earthquakes and fires. A treat you have to try in this city is halo-halo, a common Filipino dessert.
