Philippines

The Philippines is an archipelago of over 7,000 islands in the Western Pacific, of which only 2,000 are inhabited. In fact, the country has so many islands that it would take over 20 years to spend a day on every one!

Given all of its islands, the Philippines is rightly famous for beautiful beaches and an array of watersports. But besides tropical pleasures, the country is steeped in history, as it was a Spanish colony for over three hundred years and then became the first colony of the US from 1898 until the beginning of World War II. Spanish and American influences on the Philippines remain strong, as the population is over 80% Catholic (making it the third-largest Catholic country after Brazil and Mexico),English is prevalently spoken and it has a US-style constitutional government. Today, more than a hundred ethnic groups and a fusion of cultures give the warm and welcoming Filipinos their unique identity.
