Choose Philippines | Aug 03, 2015
In 2014, the Philippine island of Palawan has been voted as the number 1 among the "Top 30 Islands in the World" in Readers' Choice Awards of US-based luxury and lifestyle travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler. The tropical destination bested the US Virgin Islands in the Carribean, the picturesque landscape of Santorini in Greece, and even the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
As if this international vote is not enough, the same website came out with a compilation of photographs by Lindsay Talbot in a photo essay titled "Visiting the Most Beautiful Island in the World" (July 13, 2015). In the picturesque scenes, Talbot highlights the best things that the paradise has to offer: limestone cliffs, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, diverse marine life, and more.
"The Philippines's Palawan Island was voted the no. 1 island in the world by Condé Nast Traveler readers—and with pictures like these, you can easily see why," the article says.
