I guess everyone have heard of the Philippines. Amidst the fact that the Philippines is well known for their badass president, war in Mindanao and so much negativity on the news.
HERE are 7 facts why PHILIPPINES is worth a visit.
1. MOST HOSPITABLE PEOPLE
If you think I am being biased, feel free to search foreign blogs who have visited the Philippines and they will definitely agree.
The fact is, Filipinos are so hospitable especially with foreigners that visits them to the point that they will treat you special and will be friendly with you. It might sound creepy but the truth is, Filipinos get so excited about foreigners that even this poor country got nothing to offer you but will definitely share with you what they have. Even if it’s all that they have.
We don’t mind sharing our personal space with you, welcome you home, tour you around, invite you for a drink and share our food with you. Still, be cautious, not because Filipino can be dangerous but stranger is still a danger! If you have make friends with Filipino then that means you have found someone dependable.
2. A PLACE OF SMILES
People from all over the Philippines are people of smiles. Why?
Imagine all those bad news coming from the Philippines. From flooding, storming, wars, crimes and so much negativity. We manage to still smile every single day. We share this amazing vibes with everyone even though we have tons of problems and have not enough money to live.
Inspite living on the street, garbage dump site and just literally anywhere. People manage to smile against their problem. So you’ll definitely be welcome with smiles!
3. Blogging Friendly Country
Capture every moment without a hassle. For we welcome you to brag about our country all over the world. From our enchanting river, beautiful islands, whale shark diving, worlds longest underground river and so much more! That will definitely give you stunning pictures plus memories you will never forget.
4. IT IS FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES
WHY is it FUN? A lot of reasons! Spending time in the beach with friends and families as we feast every night to entertain visitors all over the world is one of it. Experience a typical bar hopping with Filipino as they have loud music of good singers, comedy bars and so much dancing every day! Engage yourself with activities such as boodle fight (eating on a banana leaf altogether) in every town every month. Celebrating Christmas from September to January, such a wonderful feeling! Who does that anyways but us Filipinos.
5. THOUSANDS OF ADVENTURE
Visit 7,641 islands in the Philippines and discover more from each and everyone of them. Starting from the northern part of the island which is Batanes, the New Zealand of the Philippines to the southern part of the island which is Julo. Extreme adventures? Here are some that we have, ziplining, hiking, biking on a zipline, cliff diving, canyoneering, scuba diving, snorkeling, atv driving, rappelling, island hopping, city touring, safaris, wall climbing, rock climbing, eating on a yatch or a simple nipa hut boat, and etc. The list would just go on and on!
6. GOOD FOOD
You think you have tried it in your country?
Believe it or not, nothing is more authentic than the ones that are cooked in the very land. The ingredients and spices are so much better and healthier. I can still think of the taste of Adobo and Pork Steak, nothing compares here if cooked in the United States and I dont know why!
Feast with a lot of food, from exotic to the finest of food. If ever you’re not a Filipino food fan, still don’t worry because we have all the varieties in our country that you have thousand of choices to choose from Italian, korean, mexican, oriental or just from the United States. Name it! It’ll be there or maybe it’s safe to say most of it.
7. BEAUTIFUL LADIES AND HANDSOME GUYS
Well, people have their own beauty no matter which part of the world they were but as a Filipina myself I heard so much about Filipinos that people from other countries really love.
Filipino girls are really outgoing but at the same time is kind of conservative (only if they grew up in the Philippines). They are really sweet but can be a beast so better be careful. Most specially, when they love truely, they will take care of you, cook for you, and so much more they are willing to do for you.
Filipino guys on the other hand are really sweet and if they like you, they’ll court you (not hang out and a one night stand) theyre not that type or should I say most of them are not like that. They also show efforts towards the woman they love and they used to do all the hardwork to impress the dads of the ladies before they get to talk to them.
Well see it for yourself, you might end up marrying one.
That’s it for now, since I don’t really want to spill the beans.
Pay Philippines a visit and tell me what makes you want to go back (if you do). I'll be packing now!
