Reasons A Trip To The Philippines Should Be In Your Future Part 1

1. The Sights:
The Philippines is made up of more than 7,000 islands, only a thousand of which are inhabited. Within those 7,000 islands, there is a mind-blowing collection of natural wonders: more than 1,000 Chocolate Hills, numerous underground rivers and caves, 2,000-year-old rice terraces carved by ancient islanders, many pristine beaches with magnificent limestone formations, crazy-colorful coral reefs, one of the world’s deepest ocean trenches and more than 20 volcanoes, including the world’s “most perfectly-formed volcano.”
