Overview

The Rough Guide to The Philippines is the ultimate companion for exploring this stunning Southeast Asian archipelago. From the sun-kissed islands of the Visayas to the lagoons of Palawan and the tribal villages of the northern Cordilleras, the full-colour section introduces the best the Philippines has to offer. This revised third edition includes detailed and opinionated listings and essential information on where to stay, from hostels to luxury resorts, where to eat the best Filipino food, where to see the most exuberant festivals and the best places to drink, dance, surf, trek, kayak and sail. You'll find improved in-depth coverage of major destinations such as Manila, Boracay and Palawan, and new details on emerging destinations in Mindanao. The guide features informative background on Filipino history, culture, society, music and politics, and comes complete with new maps and plans for every area.
