Looking for a beach getaway like no other? Why not consider a holiday in the Philippines? With over 7000 separate islands, this southeast Asian country stretches out across the South China Sea, soaking up more than its fair share of sun, sea and sand. But a holiday in the Philippines can be more than just beaches – take a trip inland to discover some of the world’s most extensive rice terraces, enjoy some of the freshest seafood you’re ever likely to taste, or explore towns that are decorated with unique Spanish-Filipino colonial architecture.
