One of the must-visit places in the Philippines is the Chocolate Hills of Bohol, a unique geological formation made up of thousands of cone-shaped hills that turn chocolate-brown during the dry season. Visit the Mayon Volcano, a perfectly symmetrical active volcano is one of the most active in the world, and is a popular spot for hiking and trekking.

Lastly, immerse yourself in the local culture in Vigan, a well-preserved Spanish colonial town, complete with cobblestone streets and horse-drawn carriages.
