The Philippines is an archipelago located near the Pacific Ocean. If anything it’s actually the closest country to it. And because of this, it has become a tropical paradise, filled with beautiful beaches, exotic foods, and so much more. The Pearl is definitely a sight to behold, thanks to its wonderful landscapes, and bustling cities. But where do you start?
Well, if it’s your first time visiting the group of islands, then you’ll need a guide! Luckily for you, I’m here to help you out. Having gone to the Philippines myself, I’m here to let you know all about the top cities to visit in this tropical country.
The city of Boracay is a sight to behold and is one of, if not, the best places to visit in the Philippines. It is also considered to be the beach capital of the country, with over 12 exotic and tropical beaches, all with their own and unique twists. But the number one beach to visit is definitely the White Sands Beach, where the sands can be seen to have a pearl white color and an amazing shoreline as well.
So if you’re looking for that pure tropical and beach vibes, then head on over to Boracay to have a taste of what it’s like living near the seas!
But the Pearl is not only about beaches and shores, which is why you should definitely visit Banaue up next! In this city, you will be able to visit the agricultural wonder of the world, the Banaue Rice Terraces, which are emerald-green like terraces that were made way back then when the Philippines was still beginning to prosper. It is an attraction worth seeing alone, but you can also stay for the great Banaue Ethnic Villages as well, in order to give you a better example as to how life is lived in the province.
So if you’re looking for a glorious sight where intricate landscapes are the deal, then come to Banaue to have one of the most amazing experiences of your life.
One of the most unique destinations in the Philippines, the City of Pines is a city worth seeing without a doubt. Baguio is unlike other main attractive cities that are surrounded by waters, as this one is actually surrounded by pine trees and mountains. It has a very intimate and cottage type vibe to it, which makes it a very chilly and cozy stop, in comparison to the beaches and provinces we’ve just discussed. It is a great place to spice up your stay in the Philippines and is also an amazing city to explore.
If you do decide to visit, then I suggest you try and explore the night market, as it is one of the main attractions of the city, and you will see exactly why.
The Pearl of the Orient Sea is an island that has people all across the globe flocking to it because of its amazing beaches, beautiful landscapes, bustling cities, and exotic foods of course. So if you get the chance to visit this wonderful archipelago, then you know exactly where to start now.
