From bustling megacities to emerald rice fields to smoldering volcanoes, the Philippines—Asia's largest Catholic country—is a sight to behold. Add in some of the world's most pristine beaches and a welcoming, happy-go-lucky people, and you have a place that is truly exquisite. To make your stay in this wonderful nation even better, look for the best Philippines hotels. This way, you'll get the rest you need to enjoy the day, which can include climbing Mount Mayon, walking through the tree-lined streets of Baguio, or checking out Spanish colonial architecture in Vigan.
As you look through hotel packages in Philippines, know you have lots of choice. After all, the Philippine archipelago consists of 7,107 islands. To make it easier, think of the country as three island groups: Luzon (north), Visayas (central), and Mindanao (south). Luzon is where Manila—the country's capital—is located, and you'll definitely want to visit there, as you can learn all about the country's culture at the National Museum of the Philippines and tour the iconic Fort Santiago, a citadel erected by the Spanish conquistador, Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. What's convenient is that hotels in Manila range from romantic five-star lodgings for honeymooners to backpacker hostels for those on a budget.
In Visayas, the central island group, you can enjoy the unspoiled sands of Kagusuan Beach, venture out to Palawan Island for some epic scuba diving, or see all the colonial landmarks of Cebu City. The diverse Mindanao region—the country's southern island group—also has plenty to offer. The city of Zamboanga, for instance, is known for its exciting mix of cultures and peoples, and boasts sites such as Fort Pilar and the Taluksangay Mosque.
