With infinite beaches, Philippines remains a 'beach paradise' for most fun-seekers! This ‘beach paradise’ is an inebriating cocktail of sandy stretches, sea-side resorts, and unending beach fun! However, this tantalizing ‘beach paradise’ promises much more than just beaches!

There is simply no dearth of natural and man-made marvels that catch the attention of the travellers beyond its golden sandy stretches. It would certainly be safe to say that Philippines has everything that makes for a perfectly blissful holiday trip! Read on to know about some such crowd pullers beyond beaches that vie for the attention of travellers buying air tickets to Philippines.

Banaue Rice Terraces - Banaue

Often touted to be the 8th wonder of the world, The Banaue Rice Terraces are one of the greatest engineering feats of mankind! Listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site, Banaue Rice Terraces are like stairways to heaven, with some of them stretching as high as 5,000 feet. No wonder, Banaue Rice Terraces remain a must-visit for those buying air tickets to Philippines to get their senses assailed with some of the most astonishing Filipino attractions.

Chocolate Hills - Bohol

The Chocolate Hills are yet another big ticket draw of the Philippines. Recognized as the Philippines’ third National Geological Monument, Chocolate Hills are famous for changing colours, varying from green to chocolate brown. Those buying air tickets with a plan to carry back bagful of sweet memories and tall tales to tell can climb 214 steps to an observation outpost only to be treated with the incredibly bewitching views of the hills.

Mayon Volcano - Bicol

Immensely famous across the globe for its near-perfect conical shape and form, the Mayon Volcano is one of the most popular Filipino landmarks. At around a soaring height of 2,463 meters, Mayon Volcano, the Mayon Volcano is a popular tourist destination in the Bicol Region. One can partake in scores of entertaining activities here like hiking, camping, climbing, bird watching and photography.

La Union Botanical Garden - Luzon Island

Epithets like "Garden of gardens" fall short in describing the exquisiteness of the La Union Botanical Garden in a tropical rainforest. This meandering garden brims with a bedazzling array of incredible floral beauty that grows on tropical, sub-tropical, wet, arid and desert climates. Matured tourists buying tickets to Philippines can sample the authentic slice of exotic natural beauty delicately blended with the intoxicating biodiversity and gorgeous surroundings here!

Fort Santiago - Manila

Fort Santiago is one of the most popular historical landmarks in Philippines that stand as the testimony of the Philippine independence from Spain. The fort houses a brilliant museum featuring exhibits on Spanish artefacts, wares, documents and other articles of historic importance. The Rizal Shrine housed here offers a glimpse into the artefacts and other objects used by the Philippine national hero, Jose Rizal.
