Travel to Philippines
- A Backpacker Gem

Welcome to the Philippines!

I'm happy to share my experiences from my native country with you. This is going to be so much fun!! :-D

But first, did you know that…

  • ... the Philippines comprises of over 7100 islands? Maybe there's a chance for you to find a secluded island… ;-)
  • … the official religion in the country is Roman Catholism?
  • … the Philippines is one of the world's most populous countries? There are approximately 92 million people living in the country… Yes, you read right…!

So why should you travel
to the Philippines?

  • Backpacking in the Philippines is cheap. The accommodation is cheap. Food is cheap. Transportation is cheap. It's the perfect place to be for a backpacker!
  • Some of the world's most beautiful beaches are located in Southern Philippines

Forget touristy Boracay. The islands of Bohol and Palawan are still untouched (but not for long, so hurry!) Beautiful beaches means access to excellent diving and snorkeling, and you get to experience a unique marine life, like tons of rays and the whale sharks!

  • Excellent cuisine

Filipino food is nothing like the cuisine in Thailand, India or Malaysia, but damn, it tastes good! Sinigang and adobo are my favorites, and I'm sure you'll love them too!

Did I mention the street food is really cheap? ;-) You can get food for as low as 1 peso!

  • The atmosphere… …is so laid-back. The people of the Philippines are friendly, open and generous - you will certainly feel welcome!
