Island-hopping is a popular pastime for tourists. But what do you do with over 7,000 islands to choose from? That's the happy challenge facing any visitor to the Philippines. Renowned for its tropical climate and beautiful beaches, there's so much more to discover in this culturally rich Southeast Asian archipelago. From the geological wonder that is Taal Volcano to the world-renowned hot air balloon fiesta, tourists have a wealth of options to choose from. Need a refreshing drink? The Philippines' first craft brewery just happens to be on the paradise island of Palawan. Or for those looking for a more unusual experience, visit the hanging coffins of Sagada, and a wildlife sanctuary for protecting tarsiers—one of the smallest primates in the world.
