  • Filipinos love their food and there are a lot of things worth trying!Filipino food is a mix of Malay, Chinese, Spanish, Japanese and American cuisine. Seafood is an obvious staple, as is soy sauce, vinegar, rice, pork and noodles. The tastes can vary from spicy and tangy (try the seafood sinigang), sweet and savory (pork adobo) to crunchy (crispy pata) and even peanut buttery (kare-kare). For dessert, we recommend a tasty deep-fried banana turón.
  • No trip to the Philippines is complete without experiencing its colorful and gleeful festival. As you participate in a Filipino festival, you’ll get a glimpse of the country’s culture, through the charming cultural dance performances with dancers painted in tribal designs and adorned in elaborate and prismatic costumes.Most popular festivals in the Philippines:Masskara – Bacolod;Kadayawan – Davao;Panagbenga – Baguio;Sandugo – Bohol;Sinulog – Cebu;Feast of the Black Nazarene – Manila

Jeepnies have become iconic and are a strong part of Filipino identity. Outside of the cities you can ride on the top of them and watch the country pass by, not for the faint hearted however.

The area between the Philippines and Indonesia is one of the most diverse habitats for tropical fish in the world.

  • A brilliant way to spend a day is to rent a bar boat.They push you out into crystal blue water attached to a rope anchored to the land where you can sit and play cards, dive off of the side and snorkel.
