General Information

General Information
The Philippines is made up of over 7,000 islands and has a land area of 298,170 square kilometres. It is divided into 3 major island groups -- Luzon in the north, Mindanao in the south and in between, the Visayas. The capital of Manila, in Luzon, is a bustling metropolis and is the centre of the country's business, social, economic and cultural activity. The country is also popular for its beaches and clear waters, and on the island of Boracay the beaches are considered to be among the best in the world.

Philippines travelThere are many islands to explore and scuba diving is a big attraction here together with the large range of watersports. If splashing around in the water is not your thing then you can explore the inland wonders and trek through the lush forests, majestic mountain peaks and rustic countryside.

Most of the Philippines is laid back and the country likes to promote itself as the place where 'Asia wears a smile' and the locals are, by and large, an exceptionally friendly and helpful bunch. On top of this, transport is cheap, the food is good, accommodation is plentiful and (for the monolinguistic) English is widely spoken.

The Philippines enjoys a tropical climate with constant sea breezes. There are three distinct seasons: the rainy season (June to September), cool and dry (October to February), and hot and mainly dry (March to May). Evenings are cooler. Typhoons occasionally occur from June to September.
