When taking Bespoke Holidays to Philippines you can discover that there are 7,107 islands that make up the Philippines and they’re divided into three regions- Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Some islands have become bustling cosmopolitan cities, such as the capital Manila, the City of Cebu and Davao, while others are more remote and tropical, which offers something for every traveller. Wherever you go though, you won’t ever be more than two hours away from one of its gorgeous beaches. The little group of islands make for one gigantic stretch of coastline-more than 15,500 kilometres in fact! Perhaps this is why the Philippines is dubbed to be one of the world’s friendliest cities by Forbes magazine.
