Don't skip the Philippines!
This country has some of the best beaches in Asia and a lot of cultural encounters to offer.
One of the best things I love about traveling in the Philippines is how easy it is to have interactions with locals. Getting around isn’t much of a problem since most Filipinos can understand English and are generally friendly.
Breaking down the language barrier makes travel more fun in the Philippines.
