Geography Of Philippines

Leave your footprints all over the world! Know your destination through geography.

Philippines archipelago is far removed from the mainland of South-East Asia. It has no link to neighboring countries and even crossing islands within the archipelago isn’t as simple as taking a bus. However, more and more air carriers are making it cheaper and more feasible to go island hopping. The main island is Luzon which is home to Philippines’ capital Manila – this is often where the journey begins. There’s a lot to do on Luzon itself. The second largest island is that of Mindanao where there are more volcanoes than settlements. The central islands are collectively known as the Visayas and these are home to most famous party beaches like Borocay. Taking ferries is another option to reach island groups like Mindoro which are home to Apo reef and other diving havens. Another must-do in this island heaven is taking a tour of Banaue Rice Terraces which feature on UNESCO’s world heritage list. These are terraces that were carved into mountains of Ifugao by ancestors of the indigenous tribes.

Trip Planned By Flamingo Was One Of The Best Trip

I am glad to inform that my Philippines trip planned by Flamingo was one of the best trips. The coordination between local tour agency and guides as well as drivers seemed extremely smooth. The best part of the trip was the welcoming culture of the country that we have experienced. The hotels in all three destinations were either as per expectation or above expectation. Here, I would like to give a special mention to "Princesa Garden Island and Resort" property. It is an awesome resort with lots of greenery. A perfect place to spend some time away from concrete jungles. 
The city tour of Manila was a learning experience of Filipino culture. The guide, Mr. Abdulla, is a man with deep knowledge of Filipino culture and is a very friendly person. The countryside tour of Bohol was the most peaceful journey due to its clean weather and sweet people. The Guitar factory in Mactan city (Cebu) showed us the world of strings. We saw all the levels of production that are performed to make world-class guitars and ukulele. Though we missed visiting the underground river tour at Puerto Princesa, it seems to be a must visit place as it also features in seven wonders of the nature.
