☻White beach, Boracay
If it’s tropical beaches you’re looking for, the tiny dumbell-shaped island of Boracay has one of the best – 4km of powder white sand along the western shore is perfect for sunset with an ice-cold San Miguel beer.
☻Bohol is an island province of the Philippines located in the Central Visayas region. Its capital is Tagbilaran City. It is the
10th largest island in the country, securely nestled in the heart of the Visayas.  To the west of Bohol is Cebu, to the northeast is the island of Leyte and to the south, across the Bohol Sea is Mindanao.
Bohol is a popular tourist destination with its beaches and resorts. The Chocolate Hills, numerous mounds of limestone formation, is the most popular attraction. The island of Panglao, located just southwest of Tagbilaran City, is home to some of the finest beaches in the country. The Philippine Tarsier, considered by some to be the smallest primate, is indigenous to the island.
The island-province of Camiguin is a pear-shaped volcanic island in the northern tip of Mindanao. It is approximately 90 kilometers north of the City of Cagayan de Oro. It is bounded to the north by Bohol Sea, to the west by Macajalar Bay, to the southeast by Gingoog Bay and to the east by Butuan Bay.
Camiguin is the smallest province in Northern Mindanao, with its land area pegged at 29,187 hectares. It is composed of five towns, namely, Mambajao – the capital town, Mahinog, Guinsiliban, Sagay and Catarman. The island plays host to seven volcanoes, including the still-active Mount Hibok-Hibok. According to the National Statistics Office, Camiguin has a total population of 74,232 persons, making the province the second smallest in the Philippines in terms of population.

The islands of Palawan stretches from Mindoro to Borneo in the southwest. It lies between the South China Sea in the northwest and Sulu Sea in the southeast.
Take a boat across Taal Lake and climb one of the craters – although it hasn’t erupted since 1977, it is still one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
The four-day ascent to the top of Mount Apo – the tallest mountain in the Philippines – takes you past mountain tribespeople, boiling geysers and sulfuric lakes. Don’t even think about going without an experienced guide.
A quiet little island 8km north of Cebu, Malapascua is being tipped as the next popular getaway. It’s not hard to see why – the beaches are pristine and there is excellent diving around nearby islets.
The land forms and bodies of water that are frequently visited by foreigners are areas that are called “tourist attractions” such as such in Aklan (Boracay) Palawan, Cebu, Bohol, the Hundred Island in the upper north Luzon, Corregidor Island, Benguet, Subic, etc
In many ways, it affects us.
Due to our position in the globe (as a tropical country), we only have 2 seasons, wet and dry. We are also on the Pacific Ring of Fire, where the volcanoes are positioned like a “belt” surrounding the Pacific Ocean. Do you know Mt. Pinatubo? It was known for its explosion in 1991. The ashfall even reached Japan.
Speaking of calamities, the eastern Philippines is the most affected region when typhoons come. Especially the Bicol Region. Some earthquakes are also present, but mostly they are just on the magnitude of 2-4 (the normal ones).
As an archipelago, many provinces made fishing their primary means of industry. Others are proud of their white-sand beaches and surfing industries. Those really help the tourism in our country.
Here in the Metro, the Pasig River lies on the cities like Makati, Marikina, Manila, etc. The Pasig River was considered biologically dead due to the pollution made by people who live on the shores of the river (squatters).
On the north, people enjoy mountains and highlands. Some of them are the Sierra Madre Mountains and the highlands of Benguet and Mountain Province. Baguio City was known as the “Summer Capital of the Philippines” since it’s cold there coz it’s like a city on a mountain. It also helped our tourism.
Some of our tourist attractions here are Boracay Island (white-sand beaches), Puerto Galera (beach), El Nido in Palawan (caves and beaches), SM Mall of Asia (really a huge mall), festivals (like the Ati-Atihan), and many others.
Our country has many things to offer. And besides, we’re on the list of the happiest and most respectful people in Asia!
And is Philippines still considered the Pearl of the Orient?
