The Philippines I was lucky enough to get to go there for two months last year and I think it could be the perfect getaway so here are my top five reasons where I think you should go to the Philippines.

Certainly no shortage of beautiful beaches and paradise clothes from Sandbars stretching further than you could imagine to your own private island with limestone backdrops beach bums.
Will be an absolute heaven here but the Philippines offers so much more than this it has active volcanoes luscious green rice terraces so many waterfalls and mountainous regions where you watch the Sun rise over the clouds if you want variety this is your place.
