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.

Geologic Formations · Wildlife Areas · Forests
Bohol Island attracts visitors with its landscape, natural heritage, and culture. The interior's jungle areas provide a habitat for wide-eyed tarsiers, with the small primate something of a mascot for the island. Interesting and iconic limestone formations serve as the focal point for a range of hikes during holidays on Bohol Island, while the offshore dive spots remain biologically rich and diverse, and the waters strikingly clear. Much of the old Spanish colonial architecture was razed to the ground during the 2013 earthquake, though some notable examples still stand.
