Southeast Asia - Philippines (Chapter)
This is the Philippines chapter from Lonely Planet’s Southeast Asia on a Shoestring guidebook.
Swim with whale sharks, scale volcanoes, gawk at ancient rice terraces, submerge for world-class diving and venture into rainforests to visit remote tribes: the Philippines possesses many obvious assets but it also has a quirky streak that takes a bit longer to appreciate.
- trek through the skyscraping rice terraces around Banaue and Bontoc (p000) in North Luzon’s Cordillera Mountains.
- explore sunken WWII wrecks and kayak amid the myriad islands around Coron.
- sun, sea sports and dancing till dawn on the stunning beaches of Boracay.
- restaurants & accommodation
