Metro Manila. It’s a megacity with a huge appetite for fun. From its historic neighborhoods to the outrageous housing developments, Metro Manila is a maze of vibrant energy with bits of calm in between. Weave your way through this mighty megalopolis, made up of 16 cities, one town, and 11 million people.

Indulge in world-class cuisine in Makati. Up for a cultural escapade? Visit San Agustin Church in Intramuros, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Or check out Metal Age relics such as the manunggul jar in the National Museum. How about shopping? You can bargain your way through Greenhills and come home with a set of gorgeous South Sea pearls.

Out of all the islands in the world, Travel + Leisure Magazine chose to name Boracay as its Best Overall Island of 2012. Located in Malay, Aklan, Western Visayas, Boracay is just seven kilometers long, and less than a kilometer wide at its narrowest point – a postcard-sized tropical paradise.

The fastest way to get to Boracay is to fly to Caticlan. From there, you only need to take a 10-minute boat ride from the nearby Caticlan Jetty Port (the main entry point to Boracay) to get to the island.Alternatively, you may also take one of the many flights to Kalibo. However, the travel time to reach the Caticlan Jetty Port from Kalibo Airport is around 1 hour and 30 minutes by bus or van.

The city of Cebu is known as the “Queen City of the South” —and rightly so.

As the first Spanish settlement in the Philippines, it has some of the country’s most iconic heritage spots. As a major trading port and site for some of the nation’s fastest-growing industries, it reinforces its multiculturalism with progression. This heady mix of urban vibes and casual provincial airs makes it a favorite destination of those seeking a showcase of the harmonious co-existence of history, culture and modernity

Clean. Progressive. Modern. If you’re searching for a city that capitalizes on the outdoors, you might just find Davao City a pleasant surprise.

The Davao Riverfront Complex houses the Crocodile Park, one of the city’s most popular attractions. The park showcases more than just crocs — it is also home to a variety of wildlife. Be sure to catch feeding time, educational talks and other shows. The complex also contains the Davao Butterfly House and the Tribu K’Mindanawan, a cultural village that holds an impressive fire-dancing performance. When you’ve worked up an appetite, try Filipino fare or exotic crocodile and ostrich-based cuisine at the RiverWalk Grill.
