And you don’t have to leave the country to visit them.
(SPOT.ph) It’s easy to get bitten by the Philippine wanderlust bug—there are so many gorgeous sites in our country that are just begging to be visited. If you have #ThePlan to see more local travel spots before the year ends, let this list help you choose which place to visit next.
Biri Island, Northern Samar
Home to marvelous and the most spectacular rock formations in the country, Biri Island in Northern Samar is as picture-perfect as can be. You can climb to the top of the rocks at the Bel-at Rock Formation and take in that landscape that will totally earn you much-deserved double taps on your IG.
If you’ve always wanted to swim with whale sharks in their natural habitat, Sorsogon should be on your must-visit list. It’s the perfect place for the adventurous! You can cross a long hanging bridge in Lake Bulusan, go kayaking, explore the old houses on the historical Maharlika Street, and catch some waves!
Palawan is home to stunning islands and captivating sites. Apart from white-sand, turquoise-water beaches, you can also hike up Mt. Tapyas and enjoy the gorgeous view of Coron. But of course, a trip to Coron wouldn’t be complete without diving and exploring the beautiful coral reefs. You can even dive to check out the famous shipwrecks, if you’re up for it!
The Queen City of the South is rich not only in breathtaking views but also in culture. It offers people the best of both worlds: a peaceful countryside and bustling city life. It’s rich in beaches, diving sites, waterfalls, and mountains. There are also art galleries perfect for those who want to immerse themselves in beautiful artworks. You can even hike up the highest peak of Cebu, the Osmeña Peak, and enjoy the breathtaking 360-degree view of the island.
Eastern Samar and Tacloban
More than just a place that was badly struck by a super typhoon, Tacloban is home to picturesque landscapes and beaches. While Typhoon Yolanda did cause the province a lot of trouble, it left something beautiful: the Yolanda Beach in Eastern Samar with its magnificent landscapes, limestone formations, and caves.
A favorite destination of local and foreign tourists, Guimaras is home to beaches, waterfalls, springs, and of course, its famous mangoes. Don’t underestimate this tiny island, because its sceneries are worth discovering.
