The Philippines In Photos

Without a doubt, the Philippines will be your dream destination when it comes to stunning view. It is a tropical country with fascinating landscapes, active volcanoes, splendid beaches, coral waters and tropical forests. You can take some amazing photos of rice terraces, golden beaches, smiley locals as well as capture the poverty and simplicity of various places all over the country!

      Thanks Rachel. The Alona beach was stunning and not that touristic at all. You should definitely add it to your bucket list when visiting the Philippines.

      Hey Drew. Thanks a lot. I was thinking of teaching in South Korea after my master’s degree which is gonna be September 2015! I’ll keep you posted and hope you’re enjoying your time there!

    I love the one 4 across and 3 down of the two little girls. Ultimately it is the locals who make a place special. I haven’t been to the Phillippines, but your photos definitely make me want to there. Soon.

      Thank you Meryl! I do agree with you on that. It’s always about who you are with, not where you are :)!

    Those are some great impressions of the Philippines, Agness! While I love the two little girls with their pink hair band and all of your photos of Banaue, my absolute favorite still remain the colorfully decorated Jeepneys. They really are as Filipino as it gets… :)

    All the pics are great but I’m partial to the photos of the people because I just love the Filipino people. My husband and I also preferred the rice terrace region over the beaches because of the cooler temp’s and the huge amount of trash we saw on the more touristy beaches. We were fortunate enough to be there (thanks to my husband’s planning) for San Fernando’s infamous passionate play with Reuben. What a surreal experience!

    Safe, Happy Travels! :-)

    Great shots, and I love the slide show feature. It’s a tough choice, but I have to say that my favorite is the view of Banaue from your hostel window. I loved seeing the Philippines through your eyes!

    The rice terraces look so beautiful. I love the wide range of photos, it captures the place so much better then just showing scenery. I also love the shot of the older gentleman. Awesome.

    So many lovely shots! I’m always partial to food photos so I love those little packets of veg and noodles and the local stores. And the photos of the children and cool trucks in downtown Banaue are so great!
