Philippines is one blessed country as it has many beautiful tourist attractions, historical richness and prosperous bounty of nature’s produce. Its location gives it a greater advantage for many people as this gives only two types of weather which is rainy and sunny climates. Philippines consist of more than 7,100 islands thus making it a good island hopping country to stopover. Visiting Philippines is a great experience as you can see the wonders of its beauty and the hospitality of the people living in it.

As I have said, there are many beautiful places and must-see places in the Philippines and going in these places can be quite memorable and also fun. Such places may consist of different landmarks and beautiful terrains or even historical markers dating way back from the invasion of Spaniards, Japanese attacks and many more.

Although there are still many beautiful places to set out in the Philippines, these are the top 10 lists of places that I consider a must-see:
