If you ever plan to visit the Philippines, you’ll probably see that Manila, Palawan (El Nido), Cebu and Boracay are the most popular areas.

The 1st choice for many foreigners is Cebu.

Compared to Manila, Cebu has 167 islands located in the region, making it a great place for scuba diving, golf and other activities.
