Each country has its own unique feature. The Philippines is interesting in that it has 7107 islands divided into three major island groups – Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
That means there are plenty of beaches to choose from including the world’s best white sand beaches. Boracay, Camiguin, and Dakak are amongst the more popular ones, while hundreds of virgin beaches remain undiscovered along the coasts of Mindanao, at the northernmost province of Batanes, and in the coastal provinces of Pangasinan and in Palawan. Plus, you can go to the beach anytime of the year.
The Philippines is home to very unique group of animals such as the world’s smallest monkey, the largest and smallest species of bats, 5 of the world’s seven species of marine turtles, the monkey-eating eagle, the world’s smallest hoofed animal, the tamarraw (pygmy water buffalo) and flying lemurs.
It is home to several UNESCO world heritage sites such as the Baroque
Churches, the historic town of Vigan, Rice Terraces of the Philippine
Cordilleras, the Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River National Park, and the Tubbataha Reef Marine Park.
