With more than 7000 islands this country is not only are a paradise for beach lovers, but also offer a very diverse and unique landscape. But the Philippines is not only about finding the most beautiful isolated beach, it is also about being outside and active. From kayaking to kite boarding, to canyoning, diving and even surfing – there are countless possibilities to explore and experience what this country has to offer.

How to get there by plane?

One possible way to enter the Philippines by plane is to take a flight to Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. From here you can easily continue your journey in the Philippines.

How to get there by land?

As the Philippines consist of more than 7000 islands, there is no proper way to reach the country by land. We have not heard about boat connections to Manila and even if these would exist we would highly recommend to simply book a flight.

Visa

Most passport holders will be able to enter the Philippines without a visa for a period of 30 days. You can check the visa regulations and requirements on this website. Just choose your country and you will get all the information you need.

Cuisine

The style of cooking and the food associated with the Philippines has evolved over many centuries to a mixed cuisine of Indian, Japanese, Malay, Chinese, Spanish and American influences mixed with indigenous ingredients and local tastes.
