Explore Philippines

And it definitely is! From the lush green mountains to the crystal clear turquoise waters to the extreme outdoor adventures and relaxing getaways, the Philippines has it all!
Here's a Philippine map with the places I've visited highlighted in blue.
Still got a long way to go but we're getting there! :)
The Philippines, my beloved home country, is a hidden gem and her beauty (even her name) has not been that known yet to all parts of the world. That is why I am strongly supporting and advocating the "It's more fun in the Philippines" campaign efforts of the Department of Tourism. It has been my goal to visit every province in the country -- from Luzon , Visayas , to Mindanao -- and to showcase her awesomeness through this blog. Check out the list below to know more

Luzon is found in the northern part of the country and it is where Manila is, the capital city.
