The Philippines wants to say a big thank you to every one who has been helping us rebuild after Typhoon Haiyan.
Typhoon Haiyan is recorded as the strongest typhoon to hit the planet in recent history. Last November 8, 2013, it devastated the Central Philippines. The number of lives lost and affected is unprecedented.
But ever since then, the world has been one with the Philippines in helping rebuild the nation - from sending relief goods, doing medical missions, all the way to pledging funds for the reconstruction of infrastructure.
This February 8, 2014 exactly three months after the typhoon, we want to be one in expressing our gratitude. We are Filipinos. We are resilient, grateful, and fun-loving people. And that's why even as we are still recovering, we already want to show our thanks.     read more

Our Beaches

We have the fourth largest coastline in the world. At 36,289 kilometers, you can explore hundreds of warm, tropical, islands and fins a beach all to yourself.

Our Culture

Filipino Culture is filled with color. Just take a look around any city here - from our iconic jeepneys, tricycles, and bancas (outrigger boats), to our food and fiestas. We're bright, happy people; and it shows!

Water Activities

Anything you can dream of doing underwater, or over; it is possible here! Scuba diving? We have some of the world's best sites, from World War II wrecks to UNDESCO World Heritage Reefs. Surfing. Windsurfing. Kiteboarding. Of course, there's always swimming - have your pick of whale sharks, dolphins, sea cows, and hundreds of species of fish and coral.

Our Lifestyle

Filipinos love to celebrate! Whether on the beach, the street, the mountainside, or city, you're sure to find a great party. It won't be too hard to make friends because we're one of the friendliest people on earth!

Nature and Adventure

An underground river. Chocolate Hills that are limestone. Sunken underwater islands. And a lake within a volcano within a lake. You'll never ran out of placed to explore because nature is definitely more fun here!
