    Places to visit in Philippines

    Be prepared to be awed by the Banaue Rice Terraces of Ifugao! These rice and vegetable plantations hand-carved into the mountains is so superb a sight that it is often referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the World.

    No, this region is not famous for chocolate but gets its name from the brown coloured peaks that appear in the winter. Chocolate Hills are really made of limestone karst, and a trip to these lovely hillocks is a must when in Philippines.

    The Puerto Princesa Underground River, the world’s longest navigable underground waterway, should be on your checklist of places. This natural waterbody plays host to truly eye-catching ocean life and a majestic waterscape.

    In ‘volcano land’, you can’t miss a volcanic mountain! The highly active Mayon, almost 8000 feet in height, located in Luzon, stands erect in Mayon Volcano National Park. Also, the Taal Volcano, the second most active in the country, is in the vicinity.

    In the capital city, Manila, pay your respects or simple spend a few moments in the San Agustin Church. The Mexican-style, sturdy architecture, having survived many earthquakes, is one to admire. If you’re into history, you will also enjoy Fort Santiago.
