The Philippines is an archipelago in the Philippine Sea and South China Sea. The country has breathtaking landscapes, warm tropical waters, modern cities, historic churches and Spanish colonial architecture. Explore jungles, caves and volcanoes, dive to World War II shipwrecks and discover fascinating art and culture.
The Philippines encompasses more than 7,000 islands, with most of the population living on a handful of them. Find plentiful water activities on this chain of islands with a tropical climate.
Go snorkeling in the coral garden at Boracay Island. Dive to see the wrecks of Japanese warships off the coast of Palawan. At the Apo Reef Natural Park, snorkel and dive in one of the world's largest single coral reefs. Ride the waves on a surfboard at the beaches of Baler, Aurora.
On land, the diverse wilderness offers plenty of excitement and adventure. Hike through tropical rainforests on Bohol and Mindanao. Look for cockatoos and small primates known as tarsiers. Explore the underground caves of Sohoton Park in Western Samar. Trek past waterfalls, mountain lakes and through forests on your way up to Mt Apo National Park, the country's tallest peak. Although still classified as active, the date of the volcano’s last eruption is unknown.
Spend time in the Philippines’ cities. Manila is the capital, a sprawling city with a population of more than 10 million people. Stroll along the streets of Intramuros, the old walled Spanish settlement to see Spanish colonial buildings, Fort Santiago and Manila Cathedral. View works by Filipino masters at the National Art Gallery. The city’s great family attractions include Manila Zoo and Manila Ocean Park.
If your itinerary allows, visit other urban centers. Stay in luxury beach resorts and shop in the large malls of Cebu. At the mountain city of Baguio, look for a reconstructed native village and relax in natural hot springs.

Beach was clean and the fish swim up to you. The dim sum was great too.
We enjoyed our stay. The staff was great and the location was wonderful. The hotel is a bit dated.
Great location and walking distance to the Mall of Asia. Friendly staff, great service. Huge room.
We've stayed in quite a few hotels over the past 5 years, and the Holiday Inn Express has been the best by a long way. Everything that should be right, was right. The staff were exceptional, especially one of the security guards, absolute gentleman. Would we stay there again, yep, but we'd like it ...
Ambiance is perfect and staff are very friendly. Spiral buffet is amazing
