With budget airlines offering promo fares throughout the year, there’s no reason not to see more of the Philippines. Here is our list of top local destinations.


Boracay is still one of, if not the most popular destination for local and foreign tourists. It feels more crowded with each visit, with new establishments sprouting every time, but that doesn’t dissuade visitors from island hopping, diving, kite boarding, windsurfing or simply lounging around and catching the sunset at White Beach.


Tourists are spoiled for choice, from the capital Puerto Princesa to the pristine waters of Coron and its neighbor Busuanga, the resorts of El Nido (Lagen, Miniloc, Apulit and Pangulasian), the relatively unexplored San Vicente and the exclusive Amanpulo, among others.


This members-only island club in Quezon’s Polillo Island is built on a 500-hectare property accessed via private aircraft 25 minutes from Manila. It boasts seven theme villages offering activities not strictly water-related: horseback riding, archery, KTV, billiards, mahjong, poker, etc. There’s a spa, as well as several restaurants and bars to cater to the whims and tastes of the rich and famous.



Sagada has kept its small town charm. Trips to Sumaguing Cave, the hanging coffins, and Bomod-ok Falls should be on your list.
