About Philippines Travel

The Philippines is a place that manages to remain off of the average budget backpacker’s Southeast Asian itinerary, which is a surprise because it is a great place to travel.

Cheap internal flights link many of the 7000+ islands and good local transport can get you around the islands once you’ve reached them.

This is a country that’s absolutely blessed with natural beauty. It’s also a country that has its own distinct character.

Although heavily influenced by American and Spanish culture through a history of foreign occupation, The Philippines still sets itself apart from the States, Spain and from the rest of Asia. Backpacking the Philippines is a blast and there is a good backpacker vibe on many of these stunning islands.
