How did you find about the Philippines?

Through my 2 great friends who are Filipinos. They wanted me to visit them when I was in SE Asia and I fell in love with the islands very quickly.

What Philippine locations have you visited?

Manila, Dagupan, Batad, Bohol, Cebu, Puerto Princesa, El Nido and the small islands around, Boracay.

What are your opinions on the following things about the Philippines?


I really enjoyed all those I visited. Beautiful nature, beaches and sunsets. But there’s so many cool places in the Philippines that I’d need a lifetime to see them all.


Not my favorite one. I eat healthy and I don’t eat meat so it was very difficult to be able to find something I could eat.


Pretty much what I expected. Still think I need to see more of it :).


Love Filipinos! Smiling, helpful, friendly, always in a good mood..

What do you dislike about the Philippines?

Transportation, paying taxes at airports and ferries besides the ticket price and the mentioned unhealthy food. Also no oat meal for breakfast :D.

What do you like about the Philippines?

Unspoiled nature, waterfalls, secluded beaches, unexpectedly nice sunsets, friendly people, halo halo ice cream, peace and quiet, fresh coconut water, fruit.

Your favorite place/s in the Philippines.
