Attractions from Philippines

Banaue Province (Luzon)
In the remote northerly part of Luzon one can find the luxurious green area of the Cordillera Mountains. Over 2000 years ago the Ifugauos people carved terraces out of the mountains on which to cultivate rice. The tiers tower up to a height of 1500 metres, if the fields were spread out next to each other, side by side - they would span half the globe! The view is incredible from up there. This area has been named on UNESCO's world heritage list.
The Pinatubo Vulcano (Luzon)
The most recent eruption of this vulcano was in 1991 when it covered a nearby American military base in ashes. This intense natural phenomenon has left behind the most amazing lava-landscape that is just waiting to be explored.
Manila Cathedral (Manila)
Six cathedrals have been built on the same site. The first cathedral dates from 1571; it was built out of Philippine palm called Nipa. Since then natural disasters, fires and the Second World War have managed to dispose of the 5 others! The present cathedral lies on Plaza Roma, as a reciprocal gesture a Piazzale Manila can be found in Rome.
The old city centre - Intramuros (Manila)
Previously the city's centre lay within the city walls; this is the core of the old Manila that one can see today. The Spanish built the walls in the 1500's and many of them are still intact today. Inside the walled city lie old Spanish style colonial houses, parks, squares and churches.
The Ruins of Fort Santiago (Manila)
It took the Spanish colonists over 149 years to build this fort, it later become the headquarters of the Colonial Rulers. It is now possible to walk around in the remaining ruins, visit the memorial museum for the national hero José Rizal or watch plays being performed in the ruins.
Davao Museum (Mindanau)
At the museum in Mindanao's capital, Davao, one can find a number of exhibitions portraying the different cultures of the region. On display are traditional costumes, weapons, instruments and other important implements from this particular race.
Island Garden of Samal (Mindanau)
This island won the Kalakbay prize for the year's best tourist destination because of its beautiful beaches, good diving areas and incredible nature. The island is 5 minutes sailing time from Davoa and has a large Casino and the biggest conference centre in Mindanao.
Lake Sebu (Mindanau)
In the southerly Tiruray Highlands lies a lake that is 300m above sea level. The surrounding area is scattered with villages inhabited in by the indigenous T'bolie people. The local market is lively and is popular for its crafts, it is especially known for its beautifully woven fabrics.
Luneta Park (Philippines)
The beautiful green Luneta Park is home to a statue created in honour of a nineteenth century Philippine intellectual who has become an important national hero. Rollerskaters, children playing and people practising tai chi carry out their activities in between the fountains and flowers in one of the metropolis' jewels.
Malacanang Palace (Philippines)
This is the former home of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos (and her famous shoe collection)! The name is derived from the Philippine 'may lakan diyan', which means: A nobleman lives here. Today one finds a historical and cultural exhibition giving an insight into the once extravagant lifestyle of the Marcos family.
