ATF-2016 – The Philippines is a Tourism Paradise

The Philippines is an archipelago of 7,170 islands that have been described as a glittering necklace of emeralds in the Pacific blessed with tropical weather all year round. The largest islands of Luzon, Visayas and Mindano separate the population into more than 150 languages. The national language is Filipino but English is widely spoken.

The people are really fun lovers, with centres for arts and crafts, museums, historical landmarks and much more.
