FREE EBook: The Philippines – Pearl of the Orient

I’ve been travelling for eight months now in Southeast Asia and I often meet travellers who are not including The Philippines in their itineraries.

It may be attributed to a variety of things like lack of information about the country, perceived safety issues, bad press that the country is receiving etc etc etc.

I would like to change all these and I would like to show the world how beautiful my country is!

Together with the support of the Pinoy Travel Bloggers community, I would like to invite you to get a copy of The Philippines:Pearl of the Orient. It’s a FREE EBOOK showcasing the beauty of my home country, The Philippines.

    Brilliant! Just what I needed. I’ve been to a lot of SE Asia but not the Philippines. It’s on the list of prospective destinations for this year!

    • You should definitely go! Most people don’t know that most Filipinos can speak English, even in the small little towns. It’s got some of the best beaches in the world, world class diving and surfing, and kind friendly locals. It’s still fairly cheap. But the true culture of is outside of Manila. Go soon before all the flocks of tourists come as it was listed in NY Times places to go for 2013.

  40. I’m very interested to read this. As someone who was born in the Philippines but was raised abroad, came back for balikbayans with my parents, then came alone to explore the country by myself. Shall be an interesting read.

    And you’re right, everyone leaves it out of their southeast Asian itinerary, but I understand why.

Not because it doesn’t have anything to offer but rather because of the negative publicity that it garnered in the past.

If you want to check out some of those sights, I suggest you check out the photo ebook that I made in collaboration with other Filipino bloggers. You can check it out here. […]
