Philippines is a øyrepublikk in Southeast Asia, consists of 11 main islands and over 7000 smaller. The two largest are Luzon in the north and Mindanao in the south. The main island Luzon, where Manila is the capital city, major mountain ranges in the north and contains the majority of the Philippine population. The island of Palawan to Borneo is predominantly covered by tropical rainforest. Nature in the Philippines is very varied, and part of the country is still fairly unexplored. Many of the Philippine Islands are covered by rice terraces clinging to the lush volcanic hillsides. Several of these terraces are built over a century ago, and some of them are even older. In addition to rice being harvested corn, coconuts, bananas and manila hemp.

The country plagued by relatively frequent natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and typhoons as well as a man-made ecological degradation of the environment. Natural conditions of the many islands makes people very mixed, but the majority are of Malay origin.

The Philippines is the East undiscovered paradise. This tropical, sunny islands have everything the heart could desire: white sand beaches, swaying palm trees, sublime diving, baroque cathedrals, steaming volcanoes, picturesque rice fields and feisty party on almost every day of the year.
