The Philippines comprises of 7000 beautiful forgotten islands of South-East Asia. Most of the Philippines is laidback, stable and interesting tourist destination to explore. The locals are, by and large, an exceptionally friendly and helpful bunch.
The three main Philippine island groups are Luzon , the Visayas and Mindanao . The most modern districts in the Philippines , including the capital city of Manila , are in Luzon , but so are some of the oldest tribal communities in the nation like the Ifugao of the Cordilleras. The Visayas is famous for its charm as a seat of history, being one of the earliest landfalls of western voyagers. Mindanao is the home to Philippines' Muslim population.
There are countless spectacular sights scattered throughout the archipelago, including the strange Chocolate Hills of Bohol in the Visayas; the volcanic crater Lake Taal , southwest of Manila; the burial caves of Sagada , near Bontoc; the easygoing port town of Cebu City , where Magellan marked the beginning of Christianity in the Philippines by erecting a cross; and 5,000 uninhabited islands to explore.
