The Philippines is a country of vibrant 7,107 islands, all teeming with life and blessed with beautiful natural wonders.

An archipelago that offers a variety of scenic sites with its natural and man-made formations.

A cosmopolitan lifestyle stretches across the urban centers where shopping is customer-friendly in terms of export-quality products at reasonably low prices; where a blend of international cuisine of eastern and western culinary creations can be experienced in first class restaurants.

Rich in marine biodiversity

The Philippines is home to Verde Island, dubbed as the “Center of the Center of Marine Shorefish Biodiversity”, in a study made by America’s Smithsonian Institute. It has been found to have 1,736 overlapping marine species in a 10×10 km area, the largest concentration of marine life in the world.

The Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park teems with 300 coral species, 46 coral genera, 7 seagrass species, 71 algae species; large marine life, dolphins, marine turtles; and seabirds. It was honored by UNESCO as the First Natural Site in the Philippines to be inscribed in the prestigious World Heritage List.

Haven to a diverse fauna found nowhere else in the world

The archipelago is home to the Philippine Eagle, the biggest eagle in the world, the Philippine Tarsier, the world’s smallest mammal in existence, and the dugong or sea cow, the only herbivorous mammal today.
