The Philippines is one of the most extraordinary and diverse countries in all of South East Asia. From the thousands of paradise islands and pristine beaches; to swimming with whale sharks and quad biking on active volcanos; we relished the balance between relaxation and adventure.

Above all, we adored the vibrant & diverse culture of the Filipino community.  In fact, a big part of the countries appeal is the warm and kind hospitality of the local people. No matter their circumstance, everybody welcomes you with a happy and positive attitude.  Furthermore, they are incredibly generous and always want to ensure you are having a great time in their country.  It was an incredibly humbling experience, and we feel honoured to have made great connections during our time there.
