PHILIPPINES


Philippines


The Philippines is the third largest English speaking country in the world. It has a rich history combining Asian, European, and American influences. Prior to Spanish colonization in 1521, the Filipinos had a rich culture and were trading with the Chinese and the Japanese. Spain's colonization brought about the construction of Intramuros in 1571, a "Walled City" comprised of European buildings and churches, replicated in different parts of the archipelago. In 1898, after 350 years and 300 rebellions, the Filipinos, with leaders like Jose Rizal and Emilio Aguinaldo, succeeded in winning their independence.
In 1898, the Philippines became the first and only colony of the United States. Following the Philippine-American War, the United States brought widespread education to the islands. Filipinos fought alongside Americans during World War II, particularly at the famous battle of Bataan and Corregidor which delayed Japanese advance and saved Australia. They then waged a guerilla war against the Japanese from 1941 to 1945. The Philippines regained its independence in 1946.
Filipinos are a freedom-loving people, having waged two peaceful, bloodless revolutions against what were perceived as corrupt regimes. The Philippines is a vibrant democracy, as evidenced by 12 English national newspapers, 7 national television stations, hundreds of cable TV stations, and 2,000 radio stations.
Filipinos are a fun-loving people. Throughout the islands, there are fiestas celebrated everyday and foreign guests are always welcome to their homes.

Manila

Manila is a city less traveled, with adventurers almost always choosing to move on to the Philippines’ famous white-sand beaches right away. Metro Manila (National Capital Region), composed on various cities including the Philippines’ capital, Manila,goes beyond being a gateway to out-of-town day trips and popular island destinations. There is more to this urban region than the constellation of cars stuck in traffic; and to have its beauty reveal itself to you, you just need to have the right amount of patience and determination.

Metro Manila is home to the usual ingredients of a developing metropolis. The economic, political, and cultural centers are housed in here so everything you need to learn about the country, you will find in the labyrinth streets of the Metro and its cities.

Filipinos are curious shoppers.It’s no wonder why Metro Manila is home to over 16 supermalls offering a variety of both local and international brands.

Rich in culture and history, Manila can be the very place to visit for travellers looking to immerse in a myriad of ethno linguistics, a beautiful chaos sitting in a mega-city teeming with unique stories. It may not be the kind of time-travel you have in mind but Filipinos in Manila are more than willing to take you back in time and tell tales of the olden days.

Beyond Metro Manila, you can visit neighboring destinations and attractions such as Tagaytay, Pagsanjan and Nuvali Sta. Rosa to name a few.

Sample Filipino dishes through the different city food tours and Filipino restaurants. Dine and watch the Kultura Filipino Dinner and Cultural show at Barbara’s or try wine and craft beer pairing with Filipino streetfood such as balut (duck embryo), fishball,isaw, etc.

Cebu

Considered to be one of the most progressive and developed provinces in the country, Cebu is not just known for its awe­inspiring tourist destinations but also for being a global hub for various industries such as furniture­making and BPO.

The city is also a storybook of historical events waiting to fall on curious ears. From the colorful tales of its sleepy fishing village to the first Spanish settlement that resulted in it being considered the cradle of Christianity in the Far East, Cebu is the cultural treasure chest for those in search of both history and hype.

With Cebu being the oldest city in the Philippines, you can expect nothing more but destinations filled with history. Cebu is the oldest settlement established by the Spaniards, and that is very evident in the various tourist spots in the city. Downtown Cebu is home to the world­recognized Magellan’s Cross which Magellan ordered to be planted on the site upon their arrival in 1521.

Another historical site is the Lapu­Lapu Shrine where a 20­meter statue of the great Datu Lapu­Lapu was erected to honor the native leader who killed Magellan. You can also walk along the oldest and shortest national road in the Philippines, Colon Street, or visit the oldest military defence structure, the Fort San Pedro, built by the Spaniards with the help of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi who hired indigenous Cebuano laborers as additional workforce.

Just a short walk from the fort is the oldest Roman Catholic Church in the country. The Minor Basilica of the Holy Child, or more commonly known as Santo Nino Church. Of course, with Philippines being an archipelago, Cebu is not short of wonderful beaches for those in search of a little R and R.

MALAYSIA


MALAYSIA “TRULY ASIA”


To know Malaysia is to love Malaysia - a bubbling, bustling melting-pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. Our multiculturalism has made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise and home to hundreds of colorful festivals. It's no wonder that we love celebrating and socializing.  As a people, Malaysians are very relaxed, warm and friendly.
Geographically, Malaysia is almost as diverse as its culture. 11 states and 2 federal territories (Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya) form Peninsular Malaysia which is separated by the South China Sea from East Malaysia which includes the 2 states (Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo) and a third federal territory, the island of Labuan.
One of Malaysia's key attractions is its extreme contrasts which further add to this theme of ‘diversity’. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts while five-star hotels sit just meters away from ancient reefs.
Rugged mountains reach dramatically for the sky while their rainforest-clad slopes sweep down to floodplains teeming with forest life. Cool highland hideaways roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves.

Langkawi

Off the coast of Kedah is a cluster of 99 islands offering the best of many worlds: beautiful beaches, world-class infrastructure, mangroves rich in flora and fauna, ultra-cheap duty-free shopping and fascinating legends. Langkawi has a lingering legend woven into its history.

Ask anyone on the island about the tragic story of a beautiful young lady named Mahsuri, and you'll hear a tale of love, jealousy and a curse that was placed upon the island by her for seven generations. Today, the seventh generation of Langkawi's inhabitants has long come and gone, but people here still believe that the prosperity and blessings the islands enjoy today and the passing of the curse is no mere coincidence. The mysticism of this legend can be felt in many parts of this island, especially at Makam Mahsuri (Mahsuri's Mausoleum), where Mahsuri is said to be buried.

Despite what looks like a slant towards tourism, many of the islanders are actually farmers, fishermen and entrepreneurs. Experience the beautiful countryside and peaceful landscape of paddy fields by renting a car and taking a leisurely drive around the island. Some of Langkawi's most rustic and memorable views are along the road that circles the island. You'll pass small villages with wooden houses framed by palm trees, and children pedalling their old bicycles on errands. Aside from experiencing the local lifestyle, there is no shortage of things to do in Langkawi. Head up the thrilling new cable car to the summit of Mount Mat Cincang - Langkawi's second highest mountain - for an unrivalled view of the entire main island and beyond.

Other popular destinations are the Field of Burnt Rice, Hot Springs, Telaga Tujuh (The Seven Wells) and the Beach of Black Sand. Boat tours are organised to Tasik Dayang Bunting (Lake of the Pregnant Maiden), Gua Cerita (Cave of Stories) and Gua Langsir (Curtain Cave). For a more intimate time with nature, go trekking through the pristine rainforest that covers most of Langkawi, or go on a boat tour of the mangroves. There are also opportunities to go for a dive, or play a round of golf at some of the 5-star resorts. Langkawi also has an underwater world, with an underground tunnel that runs through a giant aquarium, that has received rave reviews.

SOUTH KOREA


SOUTH KOREA

“IMAGINE YOUR KOREA”

The Republic of Korea (herein after Korea) is a country visited by approximately ten million international travelers every year. With its long history in culture and tradition, the country has a lot to offer to travelers.

Split by a fearsome border, the Korean Peninsula offers the traveller a dazzling range of experiences, beautiful landscapes and 5000 years of culture and history.

Urban Marvel

Korea might be known as the Land of the Morning Calm, but dive into its capital Seoul, the powerhouse of Asia’s third-largest economy, and serenity is the last thing you’ll feel. This round-the-clock city is constantly on the move, with its work-hard, play-hard population the epitome of the nation’s indefatigable, can-do spirit. You can hardly turn a corner without stumbling across a tourist information booth, a subway station or a taxi in this multifaceted metropolis where meticulously reconstructed palaces rub shoulders with teeming night markets and the latest technological marvel.

Gorgeous Countryside

South Korea’s compact size and superb transport infrastructure mean that tranquillity can be found in easy reach of the urban sprawl. Hike to the summits of craggy mountains enclosed by densely forested national parks. Some of those same mountains transform into ski slopes come winter. Get further off the beaten path than you thought possible by sailing to remote islands, where farming and fishing folk welcome you into their homes and simple seafood cafes. Chill out in serene villages surrounded by rice fields, sleeping in rustic hanok (traditional wooden house) guesthouses.

Festivals & Food

A packed calendar of festivals and events means there’s almost always a celebration of some sort to attend wherever you are – it might be Boryeong for its mud fest, or Gwangju for its Biennale or its annual salute to that most Korean of foods: kimchi. Friendly Koreans are always delighted to share their culture with visitors – often that means over a shared meal with a tantalizing array of dishes and plenty of toasts with local alcoholic beverages.
