Often overlooked in favour of more popular Asian destinations, the Philippines is a wonderful alternative with an equally fascinating culture, friendly people and stunning vistas at every turn. Manila is brimming with eclectic attractions and hurried streets, transforming itself into one of the greatest cities in Asia. Sun worshippers are advised to head to Cebu for the crystal clear waters and palm-studded white sands that are picture-perfect. And divers and snorkellers should take a dip off the island of Panglao where the view of exotic fish and marine life is extraordinary.
