Philippine Hospitality

Who wants to take a holiday in South-East Asia, which should deal once with the Philippine Islands–a welcome alternative to popular countries like Thailand or Cambodia leads a trip to Southeast Asia increasingly in the Philippines, where the country compared to Thailand is still an insider tip. Scattered islands such as Boracay and Panglao in Bohol in the Visayas are still a notion most travellers, but at the latest when it comes to the South of the large island of Mindanao, the knowledge of the sand run. Quite one-sided reporting in many media does the rest, so that just the “land of promise” as before with rebelliousness, ostensible religious battles, or even natural disasters as recently by “Washi” caused, is associated. But who engages in the Philippines, which can detect much – especially on Mindanao. So, the so-called crisis region represents only a quite manageable area in the South West of the island; the northeast of the large Philippine island is quite (also with public transport!) feasible. But lump-sum travel warnings ensure that not only Mindanao, but the whole Philippines be branded. There is unfortunately only a few media that try to draw a more objective picture and not blinded by propaganda sometimes scattered information.

Travelers are from the Philippine Hospitality and helpfulness often very done, be facilitated discovery tours on your own of course complemented by in-depth reading of the one or the other Philippines travel report.
