We’ve been too busy with Magento geek stuff, I think we need to sit back, grab a cup o’ joe and unwind for a bit. Ever wonder where we’re sitting right now enjoying working on your websites? Well, it’s time we introduce you to our home, the Philippines. Our country is an archipelago that sits on Southeast Asia and is also called “The Pearl of the Orient”. In this new (and short) blog entry edition, we’ll share with you what our country looks like—places, people, culture, and everything our home has to offer. I hope you enjoy our “Time Out” with us.
If you visit the Philippines, you’ll get a lot of “(you have to) go to the beach!” unsolicited (but welcomed) advice from the locals. Our country is composed of 7,107 islands replete with natural resources, and a lot of them are the stunning beaches where you can never get enough of the sun. Let’s take a look at some of the popular ones.
Boracay – A small island in the Visayas region surrounded by white sand; the finest of which are the super fine powdery sands of Station 1 at the white beach.
Palawan – An island located at the west of the Philippines composed of pristine beaches, limestone cliffs, and the most beautiful lagoons, Palawan is also home to the UNESCO World Heritage Subterranean River National Park that sits on the island’s capital, Puerto Princesa
Pagudpud – Swing by the northern edge of the island of Luzon and you’ll find yourself in Pagudpud, located in the province of Ilocos Norte. Indulge in the fresh waters of Saud beach and watch the spectacular sunset. Don’t forget to take lots of photos!
Bantayan Island – Situated on the north tip of the province of Cebu, Bantayan Island is getting more and more popular to tourists around the globe. It’s a small, quaint island with white sandy beaches. It may be a few hours away by land and boat, but it’s definitely worth the travel.
