Besides various water activities, one can also go hiking wherever region you are in because the country has a lot of mountains to choose from. From low volcanoes, such as the Taal Volcano, to towering mountains, such as Mt. Apo, you definitely have options, whether you are a beginner or experienced hiker.

Tubbataha Reef, the Philippines’ answer to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, is one of the most favorite diving destinations of both local and foreign divers.
