Some people may be reluctant to travel to the Philippine Islands because of what they perceive may be political instability in this South East Asian archipelago nation.
True, the Philippines Islands have had a history of military coups; bandits that kidnap foreigners for ransom; a minor communist insurgency problem and Islamic secessionists . But all these are far less dramatic than what news reports suggest. The Philippines is generally a peaceful place to visit and even an ideal place to live. The thousands of foreigners and expatriates who have found their second home in the Philippines are proof of that fact.
The Philippines is not just one island, but an archipelago of 7,107 islands, and one of the primary industries that supports the economy of the Philippines is tourism. The Philippines enjoys a constant flow of visitors from Europe, the US, and neighboring Asian countries like Japan, China, Taiwan, and recently a flood of Koreans, many of whom stay for good.
In addition to being a spectacular destination for adventure sports such as SCUBA and snorkeling, fishing, mountain biking and boating, the Philippines is also known as a popular place to have a romantic vacation. Many resorts go out of their way to hold spectacular wedding ceremonies, while most accommodations have facilities to accommodate honeymooners.
Filipino culture is a fusion of pre-Hispanic indigenous civilizations of the Philippines mixed with Hispanic, American, Chinese and Islamic cultures.
The Hispanic influences in Filipino culture are largely derived from the culture of Spain and Mexico as a result of over three centuries of Spanish colonial rule, and particularly evident in literature, folk music and dance, language, food, art and most importantly religion. The Philippines is the seat of Christianity in Asia; the first Roman Catholic mass was in Cebu in 1521, courtesy of Ferdinand Magellan.
Despite foreign influences, many of the Philippines old myths and legends, customs, traditions and beliefs have been retained and practiced until this day by much of the indigenous folk.
Colorful native legends; warm and friendly people; immaculate sandy beaches and miles of clear blue ocean combine to make the Philippine Islands a highly recommended safe vacation destination.
Beaches are a great place to visit with your family for a vacation. Even when you have to go on a tight budget, there are still ways to make a memorable trip that is enjoyable for the whole group. The key to this is to prepare and research on all aspects of your trip.
The first thing you need to do is decide what beaches you want to visit. Depending on which beach you choose, opportunities include nightlife, both public and private shorelines, and other activities for guests of all ages. Before you make your plans final, make sure that the beaches you want to visit are open for public use during the time of your stay.
Once you have decided which direction you want to head for your beach vacation, you need to carefully work out your budget. This should include any expenses for transportation, gas, shopping, and any activities that your family would like to participate in. This budget should also include food and whether you decide to eat out at every meal or prepare food in your room. Expenses may also include any unexpected fees that the beaches have, such as usages or parking fees, which could be found out by checking their respective websites for further preparation.
The type of hotel room you decide on should depend on the purpose of your vacation. If you are planning on enjoying a more active lifestyle, you may want just a room where you can relax and sleep at the end of a long day. However, if you are traveling with children and the vacation is for a fun time with the family, an all-inclusive beachfront resort may be more to your liking. These will often come with pools and children’s play areas, meals or restaurants where you can eat, and access to Jet Ski and surfboard rentals as part of your resort fees. Through research, you might find that a vacation package you can customize to your specific needs may be the best money saving option for your family to enjoy some of the country’s finest beaches.
Once you have your vacation planned and finalized, you can enjoy it worry free. Just plan on staying within your budget, and you’ll be able to enjoy your trip without any worries. Your trip will be a great memory for you and your family.

For many going on holiday can be a very stressful experience. This is kind of ironic as going on a holiday is supposed to be relaxing. The main reason why so many people are at their wits end is usually down to a lack of planning, preparation and leaving things to the last minute. With just a few simple changes in how you organise your holiday you can make your next holiday a relatively stress free and enjoyable one.
Going on holiday is a family affair however, for many parents the holiday can turn into a nightmare dealing with and servicing the demands of the kids. It is important to remember that as a parent you have a life too and that the family should not revolve around the kids. The children are a part of the family not the centre of it. Therefore, before you go on holiday make it crystal clear with the kids that mum and dad want to relax too. This will mean some sort of negotiation and compromise that can work along the lines of taking the kids to the zoo in the morning but, the afternoon is for relaxing on the beach with a nice refreshing fruit cocktail.
You finally arrive at your holiday destination after a long flight and you head down to the beach to catch a few rays. The sun is hot however, you realise you forgot to pack the sunscreen oil, ouch! If you and the family are going to a hot country make sure you take plenty of sunscreen and make sure the protection is strong enough. The minimum protection is SPF 15 but if you are heading to the Asia you will need sunscreen with at least 25 to 30 SPF.
Travel and Medical Insurance
Travel insurance is one of the most common and important things people forget to organise when they go on holiday. They only realise they need it when they end up in a foreign hospital with a huge medical bill to treat their broken leg. As well as your medical costs insurance can protect you from losing your luggage and valuables. It can also cover you if your flight or holiday is cancelled. There are many online and comparison websites to check what is available. Compare the best deals and only get cover on things that are relevant to your situation. Usually the earlier you book the cheaper it will be.
