Remember the saying “time flies when you’re having fun”? It is indeed true for the Choose Philippines Team. That 365 days of recreation filled with momentous adventures was one for the books. We’ve gallivant to different and numerous destinations around the islands of the Philippines which gave us exhilarating experiences to remember. Thankful for the warm and affectionate people we’ve met along the way who made our journey extra special. So, here’s the top 10 best places we’ve visited for 2017.
Cabugao, one of the many islets of Isla Gigantes, is truly a marvelous sight to behold. Stroll up the rock formations to view the panoramic scene of the island.
The exhausting climb up Mt. Romelo is surely worth it! The numerous waterfalls along the way will surely refreseh you. The fairytale-like Sampaloc waterfalls is a favorite!
Can you believe this remarkable river is just in Rizal? The river is just kilometers away from the busy city of Manila. A quick and easy day trip to this river is what you need after a tiring work week.
Be bold and jump into the unknown! Visit Pangasinan’s distinct Death Pool.
Experience the beautiful sunrise while seemingly floating in a sea of clouds in the summit. It is highly recommended to depart Manila at midnight then head straight to the quiet town of Tanay.
The name says it all, Bakwitan Cave coined as such because locals have used it as an ‘evacuation center’ during raging storms against the island.
Long trips are worth it just like the extensive journey to the mermaid’s lair that will leave you in awe once reached!
Caves, coves, and lagoons are the things waiting to be explored at Five Fingers in Mariveles. It is the ideal escapade for a year-ender!
A remote island in the middle of Pangasinan, Colibra island is worth a second look. It is a secluded island with fine white sands!
If photographs all over social media entice you to go to Barracuda Lake, then you should immediately zip your way to this majestic water form. It is beyond words, especially in person.
