Philippine known as “The Pearl of the Orient Seas.” has a huge variety of both natural and man-made attraction. If you have plans of visiting the country, I would love to suggest to you my Top 10 Travel Destination in PH.
On the 10th spot, we got the capital city of the Philippines, Manila – its heart and soul!
The city may lack on the natural scenes and greener environment but still, it will never fail amaze you.

It is also considered as one of the cheapest travel destinations in the world!
For my 9th spot, the summer capital of the Philippines, Baguio City.
The city is located on the Cordillera Administration Region; situated on a mountainous elevation, the city maintains the average temperature of 21 C (70 F) in April as the hottest month and 18 C (64 F) for January as the coldest month which makes the city suitable for people who wants to just keep it cool even on the hottest day of the year. It’s just 5 hours of travel using own car from the capital city of the country. Burnham Park, Camp John Hay and Mines View Park are the must see places whenever you got the chance to visit the city.
Boracay is on my 8th spot. The paradise of this country.
This crystal clear island was chosen to be named as Best Overall Island by Travel & Leisure Magazine. This island is located in Malay, Aklan Western Visayas and its area is 7km long and less than km wide.
If you want the feeling of facing the beauty of nature with the real adventure and maybe the fun relaxation, Boracay could fill your satisfaction. Talking about the foods and rooms, Boracay will serve you their best hotel services and food delicacies. Watersports, poy dancing, night parties will amaze you for every second staying the island.
On the 7th spot, I would have to choose Davao City.
If you’re searching for a pleasant but fun nice city, then you must go to Davao City. With clean, modern and improving system of Davao, everybody would love this place. The Crocodile Park as one of the most popular attractions of Davao amazed every tourist who have been there where it showcases more than just crocs but a variety of wildlife. In addition to that, “Kadayawan sa Dabaw” is Davao city’s premier festival and showcases the natural and cultural bounty of the land which is a movable feast in August.
6th on my list, is the Banaue, Ifugao!
Banaue of Painterly Dreams a leading tourism destination in Asia, the Banaue Rice terraces start from the base of the Cordilleras and reach up to several thousand feet high. It’s length if stretched from end to end, could encircle half of the globe. After trekking through the terraces cool retreats indeed are the spring-fed steam of Guihob and the magnificient Tappiya Waterfalls which has an enormous basin for swimming.
On 5th is the province of Bohol!
Bohol is a first income class island province of the Philippines located in the Central Visayas region, consisting of the island itself and 75 minor surrounding islands. The famous Chocolate Hills is located in one of the towns of Bohol, Carmen. Chocolate hills is a series of 1,268 perfectly symmetrical, haycock shape hills that rise some 30 meters above the ground.
Getting into my 4th spot is Cebu City.
Cebu is the travelers’ fantasy of a tropical island come true-balmy weather, pristine beaches, crystalline waters, and luxurious resorts with all the frills of modern living.
Batanes is on the 3rd place!
I am always fascinated with this place because of its peacefulness and amazing scenery. For me, its environment resembles the environment of Switzerland with its green environment and mountainous setting. To date, one of its major island, Batan Island still has a few remnants of the Spanish rule, old fashioned edifices, centuries old Spanish churches and an old Spanish bridge can still be seen there.
Landing on the 2nd spot is the Ilocos region.
A lot of things can be visited in the region, from the white sand up to the old classical churches on the Northern part of the region. On Ilocos Sur where the old world city is located, Vigan with its centuries-old edifices, is a breathing reminder of what was once a royal city. Today, Vigan retains much of the patina of 18th century Castillan architecture as seen in some 150 stone houses which is stand in the town’s Mestizo District, notably Mena Crisologo Street. Many of these ancestral home are still in good condition and some are have been turned into cozy inns, museums, and souvenir shops.
Topping my list is Palawan!
Palawan is named to be the Philippines’ cleanest and greenest city. With its unique mega-diversity, Palawan has bountiful resources, abundant wildlife and extraordinary natural beauty. It is also known for having many ethnic community that thrive in these islands and a few other daring settlers who wanted to live in unpolluted surroundings. Palawan may have opened itself to tourism but it also taken serious effort to preserve this last frontier.
