Arriving in the Philippines

Made up of over 7,000 islands with just 11 of them inhabited, the Philippines is a place of mixed cultures where East meets West. Adventure lovers adore the Philippines for its diverse culture; it is a mixture of native and foreign influences. More than 60 different ethnic groups are scattered throughout the country producing a variety of languages and more than 80 dialects.

Your flight to the Philippines will probably land in its main airport, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila. From here, you can travel via car, boat, or a second Philippines flight to different cities and islands.

Getting Around

Moving around the country by land is easy because of national highways connecting the major islands. Many tourists take taxis, because the fare is rather affordable. If you want to feel like a local, you can take the public buses. The majority of city buses travel via Epifanio delos Santo Avenue (EDSA), while provincial bus lines have put up various terminals all across the country. One of the most popular transportation methods is a jeepney, which is a converted bus that was left behind from former American military occupation. Jeepneys are exclusive to the Philippines and are part of the local culture. Adorned with colorful designs that distinguish them from one another, most jeepneys have themes ranging from the serious to the outright silly. Riding in a jeepney is a must for anyone visiting the Philippines.

Main Attractions in the Philippines

The Philippines is a place of natural wonders. Because it's below sea level, the Philippines has some of the world's best diving and snorkeling areas, including wreck diving around Coro, and swimming with the whale sharks off Donsol. The country is renowned for its beautiful islands, golden beaches, astonishing volcanoes, numerous diving spots, and exotic wildlife. Manila, the capital city, is also a unique, bustling place with a mix of modern and old-world culture.

Shopping, Dining, and Nightlife in the Philippines

Now that you've saved money on your cheap flight to the Philippines, you should do some shopping. Most shopping activity in the Philippines is based in Manila and Cebu where visitors can buy beautiful handicrafts, woodcarvings, and jewelry.

The Philippines has lavish gourmet restaurants as well as affordable restaurants serving up good food with a Chinese and Spanish flair. The Philippines offers nightlife that rivals that of Thailand. There are nightclubs, discos, and many bars for visitors to have a good time.
