Summary

Summary

The Philippines: Islands of Enchantment serves as more than just a teaser for the wondrous attractions of the Pacific's gateway to Asia. It captures all of the marvels and excitement to be found in cosmopolitan Manila and the tropical islands beyond -- with beautiful photography and a fascinating, informative text.

The Philippines, with over 7,000 islands, boast a rich and unique history. The Philippines offers sun-blessed beaches, pristine rainforests, centuries-old colonial churches, dynamic cities, and a wealth of ethnic and environmental diversity, tribal rituals, and yearlong fiestas. The people are known for their incomparable hospitality and good cheer and a Latin temperament that often finds passionate expression in music and dance.
