No need to go to Europe when you have beautiful colonial cities in the Philippines! Head to Iloilo for a trip back to a time where cobblestone roads and pastel-colored buildings were the norm. The patterns, architecture and structures are just absolutely stunning.
Known as the heart of the Philippines given its shape, Iloilo is home to some of the most interesting historical landmarks and churches. It’s also undeniably one of the best places to go for the cheapest seafood platters (baked scallops everybody!) and to go for a hunt to taste the original La Paz Batchoy! The DiscoverMNL team took on a 4D3N heritage tour that showed us exactly what this province is all about.
Oh, Siargao, surfing capital of the Philippines and home to fine, white sand beaches that are too stunning to not experience. Located in Surigao Del Norte in Mindanao, Siargao is probably one of the dreamiest and most sought travel destinations in the country—and for good reasons.
PICTURE THIS: You’re in a gorgeous resort in an equally gorgeous place. There’s music, there’s laughing, and the night is alive. You step foot on fine sand, breath in the cool breeze, and take your seat to divulge in what could only make this moment better—food.
Leyte is a quiet and laid-back province in the Eastern Visayas region that was struck by a devastating flash flood in 1991 and the Typhoon Yolanda back in 2013. Despite these tragedies, you will only feel how strong and resilient the people of Leyte are with their warm smiles and positive outlook in life.
