Why travel to the Philippines for a holiday you might ask?
Well for one, it's got an interesting history.
Did you know it was under Spanish Colonial rule for over 300 years?
The subsequent American presence there also
is linked to a lot of important 20th century events.
Besides histographical interest,
there's a lot of interesting and alluring aspects to the country
