Hotels in the Philippines offer a taste of the hospitality Filipinos are well-known for. Two popular sites await travelers seeking accommodations in Philippine hotels: the Boracay Islands, a paradise beach island covered with white powdery sand, and the Puerto Princesa Underground River, one of the new wonders of the world. Around these sites, there are enough top-class hotels to make anyone's visit most enjoyable.
The Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) has state of the art facilities that can accommodate up to 5,000 people, as well as small groups in corporate meetings.
Aside from Boracay Islands and the Underground River, other visit-worthy sites are the National Museum, the scenic Taal Volcano, Corregidor Islands known as "The Rock," the chocolate hills of Bohol, and the rice terraces of Banawe.
Guests have a rich choice of local delicacies (bibingka, suman, rice cake, longanisa, and balut) or international cuisines. Guests must try Antonio's in Tagaytay, Kubli Springs in Quezon, Kusina ni Salud in San Pablo Laguna, or Manila Hotel in Manila.
Filipinos are into boxing, basketball, baseball, football, cycling, and motorsports. For golf lovers, a round at Baguio Country Club, plush Manila Golf Club, or Fairways and Bluewater would be memorable.
The best shopping centers are SM Supermalls, Ayala Malls, Araneta Malls, the Megaworld Malls, the Gaisano Malls, and of course the small corner stores that sell souvenir items.
