The Philippines, an archipelagic nation famed for its tranquil seas, pristine beaches, and rich history, is quite often present on most people’s list of places that they want to travel to.

The nation never fails to astound its visitors with its unrivaled and spectacular scenery.

Furthermore, it is a standout when it comes to budget traveling, enabling vacationers to explore the Philippines without having to dig deep into their bank accounts.

As a result, an increasing number of travelers flock to the country to enjoy their vacations, basking in its tropical heavens.

Breathtakingly Beautiful Yet Underrated Destinations in the Philippines

As you explore the Philippines, you will find that the amazing Coron and El Nido Palawan, along with the world-famous white-sand beaches of the island of Boracay, are among the most frequented destinations.

It’s difficult to overlook the beautiful features of these places in the country.

Some other places, however, deserve to be recognized as well. Unfortunately, these places are quite often brushed aside and underappreciated.

If you’d like to make your trip to the Philippines more unforgettable, think about going off the beaten path and go see some of the country’s equally impressive sites:

  • Camiguin

Camiguin is an island paradise that emerged after successive volcanic activity and eruptions in the area a long time ago. It is located right around 10 kilometers from the northernmost shoreline of Mindanao, the farthest of the three major islands of the Philippines.

It’s a proud home to one of the country’s finest and cleanest secret pristine, white sand beaches.

It’s like a haven for those seeking refuge in paradise — a far cry from the congested beaches of Boracay.

  • Batanes

Batanes, an underappreciated destination in the north, is known for its rolling green hills, which are reminiscent of those seen in the European country of Switzerland.

Its one-of-a-kind, majestic views and scenery, either from the mountains or the coasts, never fail to impress. Apart from that, the province is one of the safest in the Philippines, with a crime rate record of almost zero.

  • Negros

Besides being the fourth largest island in the entire Philippine archipelago, Negros is a destination that offers a diverse range of sights and must-see attractions.

Because of its abundance of a variety of natural features, the place is deemed one of the most perfect and ideal for getaways in the country.

Beaches, mountains, springs, waterfalls, lakes… the list goes on! Negros basically has all of these sought-after sites.

When it comes to quality of living, it’s also at the top of the list. Locals in Negros are recognized for having the warmest and friendliest smiles as well.

  • Batad Rice Terraces

The village of Batad, which has a population of less than 1,500 inhabitants, offers the best-kept and most idyllic view of the famous Ifugao Rice Terraces.

Trekkers who want to reward themselves with a spectacular view after a long day of hiking flock to this scenic spot.

These rice terraces were constructed by the Ifugao folks using their hands about 2000 years ago. It is said to be the highest of its kind in the world, and it is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Take a scenic drive to the nearby town of Sagada to make the most out of your visit to Batad. Besides their widely known hanging coffins, the spot is additionally notable for being a scenic refuge.

How to Best Enjoy Your Trip to the Philippines

  • Staying Away from Manila and Cebu

While these two cities are extremely important in terms of strengthening the country’s economy and tourist industry, they most definitely do not have the same impact on your travel experience.

They will undoubtedly serve as a jumping-off point for most places in the country with famous tourist attractions, but unless you like traffic congestion and the regular nightlife scene, don’t linger long in these cities.

  • Establishing Connections with Local Filipinos

You won’t have to fear ending up being stranded on an island in the Philippines after missing the last ferry back because the locals would gladly provide you with the finest rooms they could offer in the solace of their own homes.

This would be an incredible chance for you to engage with them and learn more about their customs and values, in addition to saving money on lodging.

You’ll mostly be tempted to try things that the Philippines is known for, such as singing karaoke and eating with your bare hands. Clearly, it’s a one-of-a-kind adventure you’ll remember very well when you return home.

  • Exploring Places through a Scooter

In Southeast Asian countries, tourists usually explore a place best through renting a scooter. Likewise, the best way to get around the Philippines is also by riding a scooter.

Although participating in local tours is an excellent option, several travelers prefer renting a scooter to explore an area on their own time and liking.

If you’re set to explore an island, this is particularly suitable. So why not get on a scooter and start something different?

If getting lost or taking the wrong direction is your concern, worry no more because the locals are there to guide you on which roads to take.

Particularly in Cebu, inexpensive scooter rentals are getting popular among tourists. The famous island destinations of Camotes and Bantayan are quite well-known for offering this option to tourists in exploring their place.

  • Hitchhiking

Foreign travelers have long observed that hitchhiking in the Philippines is a lot more secure and safe, compared to other touristy countries.

Getting a free ride is not really a huge deal for Filipinos because they’re characteristically friendly and accommodating.

Despite the availability of jeepneys, tricycles, and single bikes for short-distance transportation, there are still several roads in the country that are inaccessible by public transportation. Thus, there will be times where getting a ride from a private vehicle might be your only option to reach a place.

If you’re planning a trip to the rice terraces of the Philippine Cordilleras in the north, hitchhiking can come in very handy.

On your way there, locals will happily let you ride in the back of their pickup trucks if they happen to see you along the road, waiting for a ride.

If you’re fortunate enough to have such an experience, don’t be afraid to strike up a decent dialog. They’ll soon entice you with tales that will convince you that life is better in the country, and that, ultimately, it’s more fun in the Philippines.

  • Staying Away from Tourist Traps

In countries with year-round tourism, tourist traps are downright common. Needless to say, the Philippines is one of these tourist-flocked countries.

To make the most out of your Philippine strip, you should learn how to stay away from these traps. Some ways of doing this is to eat at a local eatery instead of an expensive restaurant and travel like a local despite being, technically, a foreigner.

Taxi drivers who charge much more than what the meter shows are among the most popular tourist traps in the country. To avoid becoming a victim, persuade the taxi driver to strictly follow the fare suggested by the taxi meter.

Aside from this, you can also pursue other modes of transportation, such as jeepneys, which are the most affordable.

Instead of going to extravagant cafés and restaurants, go where the local people eat. These fancy restaurants may serve you incredible dishes (that are often overrated), yet nothing compares to the genuine Filipino experience of trying food that the locals are proud of.

Traveling to the Philippines isn’t complete without having to try these foods that don’t only cost less, but also taste better in certain ways.

Ending Your Philippine Journey Responsibly and with Gratitude

The perfect way to explore the Philippines is to show gratitude for the beautiful places you’ve been fortunate enough to see through your very eyes. Show people your humility when acknowledging them for their hospitality and friendliness.

Above everything, be a conscientious traveler or tourist and join them in protecting the paradise they seek refuge in and call home. In the event that you become hopelessly enamored with the country, who knows, at some point, you may choose to never leave and simply settle down there for good.
