The Philippines is an archipelago bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Bashi Channel to the north and the Sulu and the Celebes Seas to the south. It is East of Vietnam and North of Indonesia.
The country is divided into the geographical areas of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Its capital, the City of Manila, is in Luzon. You can also enter through the cities of Cebu in Visayas, and Davao in Mindanao.
The Philippines is made up of 7,107 islands. Some have grown into cities. Some are the epitome of tropical dreams. Some are just long enough to lay down on and get a tan.
Big. Small. Sandy. Sunny. Relaxing. Exotic. Beautiful. Our little clutch of islands make for one long stretch of beach - more than 15,500 kilometres.
