If taking a group to experience one of the Seven Wonders of the World is in the plan, then The Republic of the Philippines is a wonder-filled destination to consider. The Philippines is an archipelagic country in the western Pacific Ocean famed for its 7,641 beautiful islands where crystal waters lap pristine beaches, and colorful customs promise an array of amazing activities and memorable experiences.
The Philippines lush and green Banaue Rice Terraces are a sight to behold. So much so they’ve been named one of the Seven Wonders of the World. In close pursuit of Seven-Wonders status are the pristine waters of famous Boracay and Palawan, as well as the majestic Mayon Volcano. With so many beautiful places to see, it will be hard to choose which options make the cut.
Years of colonization have made the Philippines a true melting pot. Its culture and history have been shaped by both Spanish and American influences—beginning with Spanish colonization in 1521 after Magellan’s arrival and ending in 1898 with the Philippine Revolution when the American colonial era began. All of this change contributed to the truly unique mixture of entertainment, shopping, and cuisines found in The Philippines today.
Colonization hasn’t eliminated the ancient Asian cultural influence, however. Beliefs, current customs, and the Filipino way of life still reflect their old world origins. Among the most appreciated is the world-renowned Filipino style of graciousness and hospitality. With so many smiling and wonderful people it’s no wonder that people say, “It’s more fun in the Philippines.”
