This country has kept me busy for 18 years and I have never had a dull moment. Fun and adventure are so easy to find here. Activities you can try here are water activities, land activities, and many more, let me take you for a little tour around and show you some of the beautiful places in the Philippines.

Things to do in the Philippines

Let’s start down in Davao. Davao is a fantastic city, you’ll find beautiful water-filled caves, scuba diving spots, lots of white water rafting, and one of the 3 best wakeboarding parks in the Philippines.

Further north, at Cagayan De Oro, there is a lot more scuba diving. Further, into Cebu, you’ve got sailing, scuba diving, free diving (a rapidly growing sport), and water skiing.

As you continue you’ll end up in Manila, the main city of the Philippines. If you like living in the city and don’t want to leave, there’s also a lot of things you can enjoy there.

For example, in the Mall of Asia the biggest mall in the Philippines, you can go ice skating, shopping, and ride an enormous Ferris wheel with a beautiful view of Manila Bay.

Do you like bargain shopping? Try Chinatown, its crowded hustle and bustle are always interesting, then a slow stroll through the quiet calm of historic Fort Santiago and Intramuros afterward to relax makes for a perfect day.

If you want more excitement, continue north to Subic Bay and beyond. Along the coast, you’ll find numerous spots for great diving (especially wreck diving). There is also plenty of sports fishing (huge fish!).

As you come around the top of Luzon, you’ll find loads of awesome surfing spots. Near Samar, you’ll discover the world’s number 1 left-hand surfing break at Surigao. The waves are so great that plenty of people go there just to watch the waves.

But if you want a really fantastic place that has all the fun and excitement that you need, one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines and the perfect spot for you is Puerto Galera.
