Your guide to visiting the Philippines

Discover the Philippines: Your guide to the Pearl of the Orient

We spent a month in Metro Manila exploring the capital, with trips to the likes of Intramuros, Quezon City, Paranaque and Taguig. The Philippines is famous for its mall shopping culture, and we certainly embraced that! We did also explore Intramuros, the historic and oldest district of Manila, that offers so much in terms of understanding the dark history of war that plagued the country during and after WW2. We met amazing people, tried incredible food, and literally fell head-over-heels in love with the Philippines. So much so that we returned for a second visit later on in the same year!


This travel guide is filled with all you need to know about the Philippines, including interesting facts, top destination spots, our latest blog posts, and things to know before you go - including stats, currency, health and safety, transportation, connectivity, food and cuisine and much much more. Plus you can even check out our specially curated YouTube videos. So join us on our journey and explore the Pearl of the Orient with us!
