The Philippines is slowly making a mark as one of the top adventure destinations in the world — but the destinations aren’t the only thing that’s bringing tourists over or making them come back time and time again. Here are three reasons why you should book your next adventure trip to the Philippines.
Everyone Speaks Your Language
The moment you land in Manila and hire a rental sedan for your road trip adventure, you know everyone will understand you or speak fluent English. You’ll have no problems asking for directions or reading street names and signs. No need to carry a phrase book or memorize foreign words and phrases. Many Filipinos speak English as their second language, so many people will understand foreign visitors as long as they speak English.
You Won’t Run Out of Things to Do
If you’re planning an adventure trip to the Philippines, make sure you plan for as many activities as possible. If you love cave exploration, you can go spelunking in beautiful limestone caverns. You could also dive with whale sharks, climb mountains rich in flora and fauna, ride ATVs over vast dunes, or surf the waves. All of these you can do in the Philippines.
There are also some forts and sunken ships. The best part of your adventure trip is that you’ll run out of time before you run out of money. Everything is affordable, and most of your adventures won’t cost you as much.
You’ll Love the Culture
The Philippines was part of the US Commonwealth in the 1930s, so the country is heavily influenced by western culture. People are very tolerant of other cultures and ideas, although generally, most Filipinos are traditional and family-oriented. Filipinos are generally a happy, very friendly, and always willing to lend a helping hand.
If you’re looking for adventure — the Philippines is one of the places you should visit. You don’t need to worry about the language, the culture, or even the cost. You only need to plan your adventures and decide on the activities you want to experience.
