With over 6,000 islands contained within its borders, the Philippines is one of the largest archipelagos in the world. While we can't possibly show you all of the islands in just nine days, we can show you the country's northern highlights, which will feel more than comprehensive enough. You'll discover the arresting inland beauty of Luzon, known for world-famous (and incredibly picturesque) terraced rice paddies. Learn about colonial history and life in tiny villages. Looking for the road less travelled? It runs through here.
