Where to go in the Philippines: my top 6 favorite destinations

We all hope for everything to be better right now. And when that happens, some of us are planning to travel. Philippines has a lot of tourist destinations worth visiting. I had seen quite a number of places and here are my personal favorites.

1. Enchanted River (Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur)

This one is on top of my list. If you’re gonna ask me just one place you should visit, I won’t think twice and will immediately suggest this one. I guess I will be forever under the enchantment of this river. THIS ONE IS JUST SOOO GOOD!!! ❤

2. Magpupungko Rock Pools (Siargao Island)

Not your ordinary beach destination. I would recommend that you go here during low tide to better appreciate the place. There is a beautiful beach in the place but what caught my heart more was the rock pools and the waves.


3. Kawasan Falls (Badian, Cebu)

If you want that adrenaline rush this one is surely for you. You will climb, swim, jump or do free fall. The color of the water is mermerizing – some parts are opaque and some are clear with different shades of blue and blue green.

4. Gigantes Island (Carles, Iloilo)

Who loves inexpensive seafood? This place is our heaven on earth! Eat different kinds of seafoods without breaking the bank. Imagine having scallops at P 1/pc! Aside from the food, the island offers a postcard view and exciting activities.


5. Kiltepan (Sagada, Mountain Province)

Witnessing the beauty of the sea of clouds, orange picking, and spelunking are just a few things you can do here. I am telling you a 4D3N trip is not enough that you’ll immediately plan your next visit to this place. And a breakup is not required to appreciate the place. (LOL)

6. Cagsawa Ruins (Daraga, Albay)

Visiting this place will give you a quick time travel. The first time I was here, I remember the picture from my SIBIKA textbook – I felt nostalgic and amazed by this picturesque view  – the cone volcano and the buried church.
