The people are incredibly friendly… the “invite you to my house for dinner” kind of friendly.
The food is basically all pork and seafood, which I love.
And the country is made up of the most exotic, off-the-beaten-path, magical islands you will ever see. Ever.
BUT … you’ll have to commit to at least 3 weeks of backpacking to really experience the Philippines.
This is a country for true travelers.
