Philippines: It’s not all about the beach!

Sure, the Philippines have some of the best beaches in the world. It’s a known fact and we encourage you to continue exploring the country’s beautiful islands. But at some point, you’re going to wonder if there is anything else the Philippines offers. The answer is a resounding yes. If you’ve already had your much needed beach getaway, and you’re still thinking of how else you’ll spend your time in the country, check these activities out:


Cave spelunking
The country has some of the world’s most interesting caves. Just in Luzon, there are many areas that will your spelunking experience a memorable one. Sagada’s Sumaguing Cave, for instance, offers jaw-dropping spots you won’t find elsewhere. If you don’t want to travel far, check out Calinawan Cave in Tanay, Rizal—the former hideout of the soldiers during World War II.


Hiking
Oh where do we start? From the far north down to the deep south, there is always a mountain that beckons in the Philippines. The country is home to some of the most beautiful peaks you’ll ever see, and many of which have even made it to the UNESCO World Heritage List. If you’re a beginner, start with the mountains of Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Benguet.


Museum hopping
The Philippines has a rich arts culture and history, and with that come many museums that tell the story of how the country came to be, and show the greatness of its artists. Manila’s National Museum is a must if you want to get a glimpse of our past, and see the most magnificent artworks the country’s history has ever seen. Striking contemporary art, meanwhile, await visitors at Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo. Many other ones also abound in the cities of Makati and Taguig, so make sure to visit as well.


Church visits
The Philippines is known for its century-old Baroque churches. Their design has also made jaws drop, and many of them are made to withstand seismic conditions. Imagine building those at a time where there are no modern architectural means yet! Some of the must-sees include Manila Cathedral, Barasoain Church in Bulacan, Church of Saint Augustine in Ilocos Norte, and Miag-Ao Church in Iloilo.
