Philippines - Holiday Tour Packages
“It’s more fun in the Philippines”, they say, and that's not an exaggeration. Because whether it’s negative or positive, the locals will find a way to make it more fun than what it is. Even natural disasters become tragic comedy, because Filipinos have the propensity to see the good in whatever bad there is. This kind of spirit is what makes Philippines an interesting travel destination, at par with other popular holiday spots in South-East Asia. Add to this the 7,107 islands that make up its archipelago, and you have over 7,000 options for sightseeing & activities. Some of these islands have become cities; while others remain a tropical destination that people from all over the world wants travel to.
