Why holiday in the
The German ethnographer Fedor Jagor traveled to the
Philippines in the 19th Century, an experience that moved him to
superlatives. As he later wrote, “Hardly anywhere does the nature lover
find a greater fill of boundless treasure.”
The archipelago that so inspired Jagor remains a marvel of nature, with
its more than 7,100 islands nourishing a panoply of wildlife unique to
the world. Despite the country’s small size and its tiny portion of
remaining habitat, the Philippines is “richly endowed” with flora and
fauna. Unfortunately, the region faces myriad threats making it the
“hottest” of the biodiversity hotspots.
The Philippines is rich in biodiversity, with around
12,000 plant species, 1,000 land vertebrate species, and at least
500 species of coral.

and General Information
Situated on the crossroads of Asia, on the eastern rim of the China Sea,
the Philippines has hosted voyagers, migrants and traders since the dawn
of history. That it was the center of lively Asian trade route that
stretched all the way to China and Japan can be seen from the relics
these early visitors left behind. Among our archaeological treasures is
a Neolithic spirit boat typical of early Southeast Asian culture.
discovered the Philippines when Ferdinand Magellan, the Portuguese
explorer who sailed for Spain, landed in Cebu in 1521. However,
colonization didn't actually begin until 1565, when Miguel Lopez de
Legazpi established a Spanish base in the town of Manila.
Philippine society was loosely organized, without a central government,
the Spanish conquest was rapid and total. Only the Muslims in the south
and some inaccessible hill tribes were able to resist Spanish influence.
Along with the Spanish conquerors came a new religion, Christianity, a
new language, new laws and the galleon trade.
uprisings against Spain, including the Katipunan, a revolutionary
movement inspired by Dr. Jose Rizal and led by Andres Bonifacio, it was
the United States of America that broke the Spaniard's grip on the
Philippines. Unfortunately, that began the nation's second period of
colonization. Once again there was resistance, this time led by Emilio
Aguinaldo; but his rag-tag army was no match for Admiral Dewey's forces.
In 1901, with Aguinaldo's capture, the Americans were entrenched.
brought over their educational system, their legal system and planted
the seeds of their own style of government. In 1935, the Philippines
became an American commonwealth country with Manuel Luis Quezon as
president. The status quo ended with the Japanese Occupation; and it
wasn't until 1946, after the end of the Pacific war, that the
Philippines finally regained true independence as the Republic of the
Philippines under the presidency of Manuel Roxas. Still one of the
strongest democracies in Asia, the current president is
Halo-halo is a Filipino word that means mixture. While it describes a
popular dessert, it could also describe the Filipinos. They look like
Asians, write and speak English like Americans, worship like Spaniards,
and have an outlook that is international.
Southern Chinese, the Thai, Malay, Indonesian and Burmese, the
modern-day Filipino traces his remotest genetic lines back to an
Australoid and Mongoloid stock. You will also find a touch of Caucasian,
Chinese, Indian and Arabic in their gene pool as well. But to truly
understand the Filipino, you have to look at the land. The historic
isolation between islands and the topographic isolation on each island,
become the primary influence governing regional traits and societal
makes Filipinos all the more interesting. However, what is apparent
isn't how different they are from each other, but rather how alike they
are. Brought together by a common history, and looking forward to a
common future, it is not surprising to find a sharing of certain traits.
Their warmth, graciousness and hospitality - all part of the Filipino
psyche - will make your stay a delight.
The Philippines is tropical with just two seasons--hot and dry from
November to June, and rainy from July to October. Filipinos will tell
you that it is cool from December through February and they themselves
will wear jackets.
People in the Philippines dress for the weather (HOT!) Casual attire during the
day for women are light blouses and shorts. For men collared T- shirts worn over
slacks. In the evening skirts are substituted for shorts and the T-shirts are
For Men Only: If you
expect to have to attend any occasion which would usually require a jacket and a
tie (which is torture in this weather) there is a wonderful substitute. Go
immediately to a department store and buy a barong tagalog. It is an embroidered
shirt that is considered a formal dress. It will cost more or less 1,000 Peso
but it is worth every centavo.

While there are over 100 regional languages in the Philippines, the
national language is Filipino, with English as the most widely spoken
second language. All business, governmental and legal transactions are
conducted in English.
If you are coming from America, Asia or Europe with a valid passport,
and either a return ticket or a ticket to another destination outside
the Philippines you may enter without a formal visa and stay for 21
days. If you wish to stay longer you must obtain a Visa Extension either
before your trip from a Philippine Consulate or Embassy. Or, once here,
you may obtain it from the Bureau of Immigration (we can help you).
We recommend a Travel Insurance.
Health and Vaccination
Travel health depends on your pre- departure preparations, your day to
day health care while traveling and how you handle any medical problem
or emergency that does develop. A good medical kit is essential,
particularly if you are going off the beaten track. Because you can’t
always get to your main luggage when traveling. For example on a flight,
it’s recommended that you keep a small medical kit in your hand luggage
with medications such as pain- relieving tablets, diarrhea tablets, eye
drops and your special medicine.
The Philippines doesn't have a vaccination duty.
Malaria exists in Rural areas only. Except, no risk in
provinces of Bohol, Catanduanes, Cebu, Leyte, Samar, Manila, Angeles.
Note: Malaria transmission in the Philippines is largely confined to
rural areas not visited by most travelers. Most travel to rural areas of
the Philippines is during daytime hours when the risk of exposure is
