3 Most Beautiful Cities to Visit in the Philippines

But sadly, it has been rather imbalanced when it comes to tourism as some nations are rather overlooked by tourists and a selected few are getting the most out of their tourism industry. The Philippines is one of those countries that was overlooked and remained in the shadow of Thailand and Malaysia for a long time.

But the things have started to change for the better, thanks to the increasing social media exposure and picture sharing platforms which help portray the best parts of a country with ease and thereby increase the awareness about a place to a wider audience. There is a very popular notion nowadays that the Philippines is a ‘cheaper Malaysia’ with a lesser traffic. There are many marvellous places to visit in the Philippines and you can easily find some exotic beach resorts at pocket-friendly prices. You can also avail some great offers through Hotels.com Voucher Code and get the rooms booked on discounted price.
