Information about Philippines

The Philippines Islands are a cluster of more than 7000 islands, lying north of the Malay Peninsula in South East Asia.  The Philippines is a developing democratic republic located in Southeast Asia. Philippines is of volcanic origin, it has more than 20 active volcanoes. English is widely spoken in the Philippines, and most signs are in English.Tourist facilities are available within population centers and the main tourist areas.

The 7000-odd islands that comprise the Philippines are the forgotten islands of southeast Asia. Off the main overland route and with a recent history of martial law and endemic corruption, the country has struggled to attract tourists in the numbers many of its southeast Asian neighbours have.

The Philippines are entirely within the tropical zone. Manila, with a mean daily temperature of 26. 4° C, is typical of the climate of the lowland areas : hot, humid, and enervating.

A large part of the terrain is mountainous; the volcanic eruptions in the area have given the Philippines, fertile soils and spectacular landscapes and underwater areas. Unfortunately, deforestation and uninhibited harvesting of both flora and marine life have deprived the Philippines of its once rich and diverse resources.

The fertile lowlands of the islands provide crops of rice, coconuts, corn, sugarcane, bananas, pineapples and mangoes. Pork, eggs, beef and an abundant supply of fish are also produced. Industries center around textiles, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, wood products, food processing, petroleum refining and fishing.

For connoisseurs of beaches, the central Visayan region is an island-hoppers' paradise, with white sand everywhere and unspoiled fishing barrios where there's nothing to do at night except watch the fireflies, listen to the geckos, and perhaps share a bottle of local Tanduay rum. Palawan , one hour to the southwest of Manila by plane or an overnight journey by ferry, is an unforgettable wilderness of diamond-blue lagoons, volcanic lakes and first-rate scuba diving. In the Cordillera Mountains of the far north live tribes who make propitiatory offerings to rice gods and whose way of life has barely changed since they first settled there around 500BC. One of the few concessions they have made to modernity is to give up headhunting.

Then, of course, there are the Filipinos themselves. It has become hackneyed to describe the Philippines as the land where Asia wears a smile, but there's no denying it's true. Filipinos are a gregarious and accommodating lot. Graciousness and warmth seem to be built into their genes. English is widely spoken, even in the provinces, and everywhere you go you will be greeted with the honorific "ma'am" or "sir".Filipinos are also passionate, sometimes hot-headedly so. They love food, they love life and they love romance.
