Southeast Asia done a little differently
Dive into the multi-faceted delights of the Philippines and be dazzled by the diversity of wildlife, scenery and humanity. More than 7,000 islands straddling the ‘Pacific Ring of Fire’ are lapped by limpid waters, topped by volcanic peaks and swathed in the verdant greens of dense jungle and rice paddies. There’s a thrilling melange of cultural influences here too, from Malay to Spanish and several points in between. Undertones of Latin America bubble up here in the form of colonial architecture and catholic fiestas, all adding to the sense that this is a corner of Asia like no other.
