About Philippines

Made of 7,107 islands (1,000 inhabited), 97 ethnic groups and 101 languages, the Philippines are known as "The Smile of Asia", due to its hospitality. Stop by and you will never know a more hospitable and friendly place to vacation.

The archipelago is famous for the contrast between huge and modern metropolis like Manila or Cebu, the primitive tribal territories, the deserted islands, the clear sea waters and the smooth white coral sand.

The Philippines are a nice and friendly place to visit. The people speak English, as it is an official language.

Be sure to visit Baguio City the summer capital of the Philippines.
