The friendliest country on Earth is also the place where everything is more fun. The best way to explore it is by getting lost in the 7,000 islands that make up the archipelago. Culturally the result of 400 years of Spanish occupation, Japanese government and US influence, Filipinos are highly literate, speak English and seem to always be happy, no matter how grim the outlook. The beaches in this Southeast Asian country are divine, truly taken out of a dream book, and most of them are outside the tourist trails which seem to have only discovered heavily developed Boracay and, more recently although to a lesser degree, Palawan. Wander off to dive the many incredible spots where you can mingle with rare species like mantas, whale sharks and thresher sharks. Relax by the shadow of a palm tree and let the day set behind the horizon as you look out for the beauty of a new day.
