There are plenty of reasons to visit the Philippines! This amazing destination offers pretty much everything you need: the world class beaches, awesome conditions for water sports, stunning mountains and volcanoes, along with caves and rice terraces to explore.
Head to Legazpi, in the south of Luzon Island, to see the perfect cone of the majestic Mayon Volcano (2,463 m) and the ruins of Cagsawa Church. 460 km north from Manila, you’ll find Banaue village, surrounded by rice fields of Batad.

In Bohol island, near Cebu, you’ll see the weirdest landscapes ever! The plain is dotted with more than 1260 so-called Chocolate Hills. In the dry season, the grass-covered geological formations turn chocolate brown. On the island of Bohol there’s also a tarsier sanctuary where you can come face to face with the world's smallest primate!

With almost no tourism infrastructure and limited information available in books and on websites, it can feel like you’re stepping into the great unknown. But this is exactly why travellers find this country so compelling.

With its infinite natural beauty, from spectacular mountains, wind-blown deserts and a pristine coastline, Oman is the obvious choice for those seeking out the modern face of Arabia while wanting still to sense its ancient soul…
Enjoy a taste of the Caribbean in Oman! Al-Fazayah Beach (near Salalah) with 5-kilometres long pristine white sand is perfect for families. Al Mughsail Beach, located less than an hour's drive from Salalah, offers 8 kilometres of fine sand with basic infrastructure. Al Sifah Beach offers fine, deep golden sand and good conditions for various types of water sports. About 20 km east of Muscat lies Barr Al Jissah, a luxury haven on the shores of the Gulf of Oman.
Secluded coves and peaceful waters form the perfect habitat for endangered hawksbill and green turtles. The beaches at Ras al Hadd and nearby Ras al-Jinz are known as their nesting place. Ras Madrakah is also quite beautiful beach, with thousands of crabs and golden sand. In the Masirah Island you can see many shipwrecks along the remote stunning beaches and marine turtles laying eggs.
