20 Photos That Will Make You Want To Visit The Philippines


We aren’t usually so bold in our choice of blog titles, but there is no other way to put it.

Firstly, the Philippines is an archipelago of over 7000 islands located in Southeast Asia, and Palawan is an island province within the Philippines with 1,780 islands and islets, rocky coves, and sugar-white sandy beaches. For our trip, we chose to travel to two of the most popular islands in Palawan, El Nido and Coron.

El Nido and Coron are islands that are not completely filled with tourists…yet. (So visit now!) We traveled during the end of the high peak season (May) and were pleasantly surprised that the locals outnumbered the amount of tourists. However, on our daily island hopping adventures we were also fortunate enough to meet some really friendly groups of people from around the world, bonded by the fact that we were all overwhelmed and awestruck by our newly discovered paradise.

Selecting such a limited amount of photos to portray our visit to the Philippines was quite a challenge, but we did our best. We figure we could write about Palawan and its beauty all day, but a few snapshots might encourage you to pack a bag much quicker.

People always say this, but really – our pictures don’t do them any justice.
