Some of the Most Beautiful Tourist Places to Visit in the Philippines at Low Costs

The article is not an infomercial for the Department of Tourism of the Philippines. I do not receive any monetary rewards or compensation for them, nor am I a travel agent. I simply wish to share some wonderful and mouth-watering travel experiences with you. If you happen to visit the Philippines, you may want to stop by in one or all of these fabulous breath taking sites.

There are several tourist attractions worth visiting in the Philippines. For your own security and safety, you should visit tourist spots and well lit public places only while you are in the Philippines. I recommend the following tourist places. I hope you will enjoy your visit to the max.


It is famous worldwide for its seven kilometers of white sand, which is always cool or warm, but never hot. You can indulge in so many activities, such as having a massage while sipping wine, going snorkeling and diving or join the different water sports. You may wish to visit Mt. Luho from where to enjoy a breath taking and panoramic view of the island.

Banaue Rice Terraces, Ifugao

It is famous for the Banaue Rice Terraces which is the 8th wonder of the world. The natives of the region built them over 2000 years ago with the use of the crudest wooden tools. While in the area, you may want to go to Sagada and see the famous ancient burial caves and hanging coffins, astonishing limestone formations at Sumaging Caves and the Bontoc Museum. These sights are breath taking.

Bohol and Panglao Island

The famous Chocolate Hills are quite fascinating and unbelievable. These are 1268 limestone hills that are covered with grass which dries up in the summer that the hills turns brown that transforms these hills into chocolate cones. You will also discover the Tarsier, which is the world’s smallest primate with big hands and huge eyes. You will find these gorgeous and unique primates at the Tarsier Preservation Center in Canapnapan.


It is located just off the north tip of Cebu. This tiny island has a population of 4000 people, most of whom derive their livelihood from coconuts, fishing, boat building, and tourism. The island has a dimension of about 2km by 0.5km. You can tour the whole island by foot in 1 or 2 hours depending on how fast or slow you walk. Malapascua means "Bad Christmas" in the Cebanuo language. Legend has it that it was so named because the Spanish landed here on a stormy Christmas Day in the 1500’s.


This island is loaded with tourist attractions. One of them is the Cambugahay Waterfalls - a five level waterfall that has multiple cascades – a truly breath taking sight to behold. In 1978, Siquijor has been declared as a marine reserve. The island is famous for its untouched marine wildlife that beckons enthusiasts to explore its many secrets. A water’s playground is well hidden beneath the sparkling blue water where exists a magnificent rainbow.


Baguio’s temperature is cool year-round as opposed to other regions of the Philippines where it is hot and humid year-round. Sometimes, the temperature here plummeted to 9 degrees Celsius, and that’s cold! Baguio is among the most popular tourism centers in the north, which is dominated by Ilocano-speaking people.

Bantayan Island

It is the shining tropical paradise in Asia, which is commonly known as an island paradise in Philippines. Tourists from every corner of the globe fall in love with its fine white sand beaches and crystal clear blue waters. History has it that many of these foreign nationals (foreigners) made this island their home to spend the rest of their lives with their families. They built single-cottage beach houses along the shore but as time went by, constructed a couple of new cottages instead to accommodate the growing number of tourists who seeks safe haven on the magnificent island paradise.

Leyte Landing Memorial

The Leyte Landing Memorial is a memorial dedicated to the landing of American General Douglas MacArthur and his men at Red Beach. The memorial was erected in tribute to General MacArthur’s fulfillment of his promise to return to the Philippines after the Japanese occupied it during World War II in the Philippines.

Palawan Island

This island is also known as the "island of the gods" because of the spectacular sea and landscapes of Palawan, particularly at El Nido where one has the impression of seeing heaven's beauty on earth. Exercise some caution when visiting Palawan. For safety concerns, I would not set foot in Mindanao and the Zamboangas. Have a safe tour and enjoy!
