The Philippines is a piece of paradise – an archipelago of rich biodiversity, powdery white beaches and clear water. Coupled with a vibrant capital teeming with culture and diversity, it’s no wonder that three of the top ten islands in the world are in the Philippines. Travel enthusiasts ranked the islands on activities and sights, natural attractions, beaches, food, friendliness and overall value. Palawan beat off tough contenders from Hawaii and Italy for the number one spot.
In a separate survey, Conde Nast Traveler has just ranked El Nido in Palawan as #4 in the most beautiful beaches in the world.
