Philippines Tourism

The Philippines is different from the rest of the countries in Southeast Asia. More expensive, the food available is not as good as in the rest of the countries of the area, and it is more difficult to travel without prior planning.

It is recommended to use them as a connection. It is also recommended to plan in advance flights between islands or even ferries if that is the option chosen.
