Luzon travel guide

3.9
Shopping Malls · Sacred & Religious Sites · Parks
One of the world's largest and most densely populated islands, Luzon serves as the political and economic center of the Philippines, containing two the country's biggest and most important urban centers. In this culturally rich corner of the Philippine archipelago, a vacation in Luzon can traverse two distinct landscapes, each offering a set of memorable experiences. The northern section of the island appeals to intrepid explorers with its jungles, mountain villages, deep caves, and sandy beaches. Meanwhile, the southern portion remains one of the least explored parts of the country, where you can easily venture off the beaten tourist path and spend weeks discovering active volcanoes, historic ruins, and lush nature parks.
