The Philippines is famous for its stunning beaches, like those in Boracay and Palawan. It’s also known for its delicious food, like adobo and lechon. 

The country has a rich history, with landmarks like the ancient rice terraces in Banaue. Plus, it’s home to friendly people and vibrant festivals. 

The Philippines is an excellent place for adventure, with many islands to explore.

The number 1 food in the Philippines is Adobo. It’s a tasty dish with chicken or pork cooked in soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and spices. It’s a favourite meal for many Filipinos and is found everywhere in the country.

Foreigners need a valid passport and a visa to enter the Philippines unless they come from a country that has a visa waiver agreement with the Philippines. In that case, they can stay for a certain period without a visa. They might also need a return ticket to their home country or an onward ticket to another destination.

Yes, you might need vaccines for the Philippines. It’s a good idea to check with a doctor before you go. Common vaccines include hepatitis A and B, typhoid, and sometimes yellow fever if you’re coming from certain countries. It’s also intelligent to be up-to-date on routine shots like measles.

The best time to visit the Philippines is from December to February. It’s cooler and drier then, making it perfect for exploring beaches and outdoor sights. Avoid the rainy season from June to October to make the most of your trip.
