Welcome to Philippines

Philippines

Located in Southeast Asia in the western Pacific Ocean, the Philippines is a fantastic country to visit. The Philippines is the home to some amazing beaches, which are a part of one of the world’s largest coastlines, some stunning sights and attractions and seven thousand islands plus a lot more incredible Philippine treats that every visitor will be amazed by. If you wish to island hop be advised that it will take you three decades to visit each of these islands.

The Philippines has endured a tumultuous past to say the least. The first settlers in the Philippines were the Negritos followed by the Austronesian settlers before the country came under Spanish rule during the Spanish Colonial Era. In 1898, the Filipinos declared independence but they would have to wait until 1946 – a year after the end of the Second World War when they were at last granted their independence.  

The Philippines is noted for its rich culture and its heritage that you will have to experience when you are here.

Still undecided where to go? Why don’t you check out these impressive Filipino destinations.

Samal Island

A trip to Samal Island should definitely be on the cards. It is one of Davao’s most impressive sights. Enjoy the stunning beaches that are located here and the other exciting amenities that are close by. Samal Island is a fantastic place to bring the entire family.

Fort Santiago

Fort Santiago was built by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, the Spanish conquistador. Construction of this fort started in 1590, finishing in 1593. This spectacular defence fortress is a major part of Manila’s walled city. It is a very popular Manila attraction.

 

 

Rizal Park

Located along Manila Bay in the heart of the Philippine capital close to Manila’s old walled city, Rizal Park is a real treat for tourists to the capital city of the Philippines. Rizal Park is a very historic Manila landmark. This particular site has witnessed some key moments in the history of the Philippines. It was here in 1571 where the Filipinos-Moslems took refuge, escaping the Spanish occupation of Intramuros, which is the oldest district and historic part of Manila.

If you know your Filipino history you will know that the Spanish executed many Filipino rebels and mutineers in what is now Rizal Park. It is a park that certainly draws the crowds.

Sinulog Festival

                                    

The Sinulog Festival is an annual festival, which takes place in the Philippine city of Cebu on the third Sunday of January. This particular festival is celebrated to commemorate the pagan origin of the Filipino people and their acceptance of Roman Catholicism.

If you are in Cebu at this time of the year you will see and experience a wonderful street parade, dancing, music and much more besides. The participants in the Sinulog festival usually wear very colourful costumes to the delight of the large crowds who are normally gathered on Cebu’s streets during the festivities.

The Sinulog Festival lasts for nine days ending with the Sinulog Grand Parade. The Fluvial Procession is a major part of the festival and it takes place at dawn with the Santo Nino statue being carried from the city of Mandaue to Cebu on a pump boat. This procession finishes at the Basilica where visitors and locals alike will be able to witness a re-enactment of Cebu’s Christianizing, which is their Roman Catholicism acceptance.

Later on another more solemn procession takes place, which lasts for hours due to the enormous crowds who have gathered and who are participating in this very impressive Cebu event.
