Philippines - North Luzon (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the North Luzon chapter from Lonely Planet’s Philippines guidebook.

North Luzon, a region that invites intrepid exploration, encapsulates a nation in miniature. Machete-toting mountain tribes who are quick to smile and quicker to share their rice wine. Surfers racing waves onto sunny beaches. White-sand beaches lapped by teal waters. Impenetrable jungle hiding numerous endemic critters.
