Why You Should Make the Philippines Your Next Travel Destination

Travelling to the Philippines after being gone for twelve years has been an amazing journey. I did not expect to feel this connected to the land of my mother, but it is so captivating, so beautiful and just so worth visiting at least once in your lifetime. (I’m going back soon!)

Here are a few reasons why you should make the Philippines the number one on your travel list if you plan to venture into Southeast Asia.

You have been longing for exotic island food and you don’t even know it! Pictured here, a relative of the Japanese lychee. And don’t forget about the Filipino mangoes; they are pure gold and taste incredible. For drinks, slice open a fresh young coconut and indulge in fresh coconut juice. There’s nothing like it.

Soon enough, you’ll notice it. The pace is much more relaxed, the people always smile and there is simply no stress because it is too warm to get worked up. In the end, tomorrow is another day and whatever will be, will be.
