Pearl of the Orient Seas
Encompassing over 7,600 islands, the Philippines offer plenty of vacation ideas for active travelers. Though the island chain's location leaves it vulnerable to typhoons and earthquakes, it also endows it with plenty of natural resources and biodiversity. For most visitors, a Philippines holiday includes outdoor adventures like kitesurfing, mountain trekking, spelunking, and volcano hiking. Those with a taste for something more relaxing can build a Philippines itinerary around beaches, local fiestas, and the island cuisine, which blends influences from around the world and serves up dishes at once sour, salty, and sweet.

Mindoro travel guide

Beaches · Scuba & Snorkeling · Waterfalls
Pristine coral reefs and dramatic cliffs make Mindoro a much-coveted tourist destination for nature lovers. Tourist attractions in Mindoro include tropical sand beaches, fishing villages, and near impenetrable hills. An extremely rugged mountain range divides Mindoro lengthwise into two starkly different areas. More prosperous Mindoro Oriental offers nightlife and scuba diving, while near-wild Mindoro Occidental has fabulous mountain hikes and primitive tribal villages. A holiday in Mindoro offers the chance to spot the endangered Mindoro dwarf buffalo, and go island-hopping along the turquoise blue waters.
